Green Operations and Maintenance provides an overview of basic green and sustainable concepts and Operations and Maintenance (O&M) principles for affordable housing. Its content provides a stepping-off point to develop a site-specific green and sustainable O&M program that follows U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development requirements.
This class provides guidance in preparing a Green O&M Plan. This guidance will tie together the previous five sessions and make clear how all of them work in concert, interact with and support these procedures in a cohesive working plan.
The participant will learn to:
• Apply Green Operations and Maintenance guidelines to draft an effective O&M plan. Areas of focus include but are not limited to: equipment, routine and preventive maintenance, record keeping, training, energy and water efficiency initiatives, IPM, indoor environmental air quality, interior and exterior site sustainability initiatives, green and healthy housekeeping products and processes and waste reduction and recycling
• Incorporate Integrated Pest Management (IPM) plan into Green O&M plan
• Learn to research and evaluate what products, components and processes are currently in-place and what else may be needed to develop the most effective green and sustainable O&M Plan
• How to attain a green property certification
