CNM Site Tour a Success:
FMANM Contribution Recognized

Twenty-eight knowledge seekers joined ranks in August as the Facility Manager Association of New Mexico toured the Digital Building Controls Laboratory at the Central New Mexico Community College to witness and investigate the updated equipment the association supported in installing.  The partnership among FMANM, CNM and private industry's Epic Controls is a first of its kind.

Maintenance and operations facility managers and engineers have complained for years that no local training is available for internet connected building controls.  With the addition of the new equipment in this laboratory, that educational deficit has been filled.

New member and facility manager Tuffy Von Tellrop with Meowwolf commented, "It is great to support an organization that has this kind of direct impact on the facilities community."  Alan Peter with Outta Control added, "It is almost impossible to find tradesmen with the right skills to perform this work.  This is a huge step in the right direction."    Another new member Dianna Cordova with Enterprise Bank added, "I love tours like these!  You get to see firsthand how the equipment in your facility is impacted by these critical technological advances."    

 

Maintenance and operations facility managers and engineers in New Mexico have complained for years that no local training is available for internet connected building controls. This is a critical infrastructural process which coordinates and directs all essential building functions including heating and air conditioning, ventilation, boilers, fire protection, security and observation, lighting, electric power, plumbing and water monitoring, and even elevators.  Thanks to the educational partnership forged by the Facility Manager Association of New Mexico and Central New Mexico Community College, that lack of specific educational opportunity is about to change.

FMANM treasurer Dave Jensen has logged 40 plus years in the HVAC industry. He works for Epic Controls in Albuquerque which provides commercial integrated control systems and maintenance in an effort to maximize energy efficiency. In addition, Dave has taught at CNM for 12 years and is passionate about providing quality education. In a "first of its kind" partnership with the college, details were finalized late January this year, and installation to modernize and upgrade the building controls laboratory at CNM began early April. Dave is uniquely positioned in the partnership, being deeply invested both as the appointed dealer, as the college instructor teaching the HVAC course, and as the treasurer for FMANM which provided funding assistance to install the project.

"There's a high demand for technicians but few companies that step up to help," says Dave. He's thrilled that Reliable Controls—a manufacturer of direct digital control equipment--did.  Reliable Controls donated the hardware and software, and Epic Controls will perform the installation and subsequent maintenance.

Where does FMANM fit into the scenario?  Thanks to the support of our member companies, this organization can point directly to a project we helped fund which will provide an up-to-date working lab for teaching CNM students digital operations systems and trouble shooting.  Stay tuned for an upcoming date for an on-site tour of the installation as the return to post-pandemic normalcy evolves.
