Integrated and Intelligent BuildingCertification for Designers and Installers:The Industry’s Path Forward for Credibility

  • Designers and installers must have credentials similar to other design professionals and contractors on the job.
  • Professional credentialing provides the industry with credibility and legitimacy.
  • Is an evolutionary step in the development of a recognized and mature industry.
  • Suggested path for the industry to establish credential of designers and contractors of integrated building systems.
requirements of the credentials
  • Credentials should be provided or issued by an independent body.
  • Credentials cannot appear bias
  • Creation of a credential by an independent organization can be useful for those manufacturers that want to create their own credential, providing a baseline of required knowledge, experience and skills.
  • The organization issuing the credential must be sensitive to what the credentialed person is called.
  • Cannot be called an “architect” or an “engineer”
  • “Certified” or “Registered” by an independent body.
  • Certification will require significant administration
  • eligibility, testing and recertification requirements.
  • Curriculum will need to be “memorialized” in a manual and taught or reviewed in classes for those seeking certification or registration.
  • Credentials should provide for different types
examples of existing credentialing
  • The Building Industry Consulting Services International (BICSI)
  • The American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE)
  • ASIS International
  • LonMark
  • Infocomm International
type of certifications
  • Certification means that an independent body has audited, tested or verified that a person or organization has met the requirements of a pre-determined standard for certification.
  • The organization then registers the person or organization in their records.
  • There are a number of ways to certify people and organizations. Attendance at an educational session
  • Attend an educational session, be tested on the material in the session, and after passing the test, be certified on the material in the session.
suggested plan of action
  • Collaborative educational and training sessions
  • Organizations to cross-market their training and educational courses and materials to members of the other organizations.
  • Test the marketplace for the need of collaborative training and eventual credentialing
  • Obtain AIA and professional engineering continuing education credits for this collaborative training forum.
  • Hold a planning session concurrent with the actual training / conference to address the details of leadership, funding and organization.
  • Get CIB / EISA to endorse this effort as essential for the industry to achieve Net Zero Energy / Carbon Neutral Buildings by 2030.
  • Creation of an alliance for the training organizations.
  • Seek funding and resources for the effort.
  • Have industry provide the manpower, resources and knowledge base for the preparation of the certification curriculum and manual.
  • Develop the curriculum and the knowledge base for the different credential designations
  • Addressing issues such as credential administration, initial testing, continuing education, manuals, renewals, etc.
  • Author a section in the Whole Building Design Guide
