Construction & Engineering – Working Group Update

The Construction & Engineering (C&E) working group was formed in late 2016 to focuses on educating construction and engineering related members in industry advancements, as well as developing a focus for M-WERC to lead potential research, pilot projects and publications.

In 2017, the C&E working group was an important contributor to the Better Building Challenge (BBC) initiative with the City of Milwaukee. In 2018, the working group will likely expand into utility transmission and distribution activities and expand its membership accordingly.

The primary focus to date of the working group has been the aforementioned BBC program with the City of Milwaukee. This activity culminating in the first technical conference put on by the C&E working group, a “BBC Conference” held in conjunction with the City of Milwaukee and other partners involved in the BBC program. Speakers described the various stages and steps of a commercial building participating in the BBC program and case studies presented during the event highlighted actual energy efficiency projects that have been undertaken by buildings in the program, and the resulting benefits and successes.  Brainstorming sessions and interactive activities were also built into the event to identify ways to improve the BBC program.
