HVAC O and M in light commercial facilities request

Saturday, November 28th, 2020

David Reynolds received the request below, asking for IFMA member input. The sender wishes to gain impressions from FMs involved with HVAC O&M in light commercial facilities. David corresponded with the sender several times, explaining IFMA policies and purposes. The request seems not to be for sales. From a sustainability point of view, this may be an opportunity for IFMA members to influence a helpful development.

The contact:
Steven Ellefson, Newry Corp.,
Lakewood, OH 44107
Phone: (440)-471-1187

The request:
I work for Newry, an innovation consulting firm in Cleveland, OH, and have been working with a large HVAC OEM to help them advance a new, high efficiency cooling technology. We’re interested in talking to professionals in the facilities management industry, primarily those in hotel and/or small office buildings, to understand where this technology could be a good fit, how this would need to integrate with other building systems, and who some early adopters or commercialization partners could be. We believe this refrigerant free technology has built in advantages such as high efficiency, zonally controlled heating and cooling, and low noise.

If you have time for a 30 – 60 minute chat sometime in the next week or so, it would be great to hear your perspective on where this technology might work well. Just let me know some times that would work for you.
