Mark Schmidt and the RG Media (Register Guard) facilities management team have been working through several areas of lighting assessments and upgrades including a section of interior lighting that were modified HID exterior lights which were having complications. Through a partnership with their supplier CED Lighting they were able to convert several of these lighting sections to LED to offset the rising cost of energy as well as extend the overall life on the electrical infrastructure of the building by reducing the loads. Mark and the RG Media facilities maintenance team are continuing to work with trusted vendors to generate creative solutions for cost savings, preventative maintenance and efficiency upgrades to keep the long term vision in perspective. Join Mark and our gathering of local facilities, maintenance and risk professionals for a tour of the RG Media facilities and a peer led discussion of return on investment concepts, come prepared to share your experiences.
Join your local peers in facilities management as we discuss issues relevant to our profession and our region. To find out more about Local Facilities Manager's Connection, please REGISTER for the meeting through our LFMC contact page.
