We are excited to announce that a long-standing client of VFA, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, has received Global FM’s Platinum Award for Excellence in Facilities Management. You can read the full press release here.
Berkeley Lab, a leading research center for environmental studies, nanoscience, quantitative biology, physics and nuclear energy, consists of 107 buildings across 203 acres. The size and complexity of the portfolio required a multifaceted, innovative approach.
Berkley Lab implemented a comprehensive integrated facilities assessment, analysis, work execution, and reporting system. The Facilities Division developed an effective and efficient way to evaluate facility sustainability and identify cost-effective measures to support its ability to meet mandate requirements, by combining standard facility condition assessments with comprehensive green building assessments in partnership with VFA. Berkeley Lab has taken this systematic look at its buildings in order to comply with government sustainability mandates, including Executive Order 13423 and the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007.The Department of Energy has recognized Berkeley Lab for developing a best-practice integrated facilities management solution.
We’re pleased with this much-deserved recognition for the Facilities Division at Berkeley Lab. As one of our most innovative clients, they continue to set the bar for other organizations in their approach to proactive facilities management.
