Roundtables | Thursday, October 23, 3:45-5:00PM
David Rosso, Chief of Land Use and Environmental Review, CSU Office of the Chancellor
This roundtable discussion will focus on the land acquisition process for CSU campuses, and how to meet CEQA obligations, and in appropriates situations, how to avoid an extensive CEQA process for simple acquisitions. ‘Know the risks’ for the different paths available to deal with CEQA as part of a strategic property acquisition in relation to an existing or future master plan will be covered, as well as short cuts for reducing stress in relation to CEQA.
Satinder Gulati, University Engineer, CSU Office of the Chancellor
Doug Effenberger, Vice President, Power Engineering Services
Malcolm Lewis, President, CTG Energetics
Kent Peterson, Vice President and Chief Engineer, P2S Engineering
Tony Simpson, Senior Director of Facilities Services, CSU San Bernardino
This roundtable session will provide project managers and plant personnel with knowledge on how to successfully accomplish a high-performance building. With limited construction budgets, the highest sustainable results in meeting increasingly aggressive goals for energy and carbon reduction are best achieved through collaborative processes. Learn the importance of setting project goals and collaboratively harnessing the talents and insights of the campus facilities and plant personnel, architect, engineering team and contractor to optimize project results, increase project value, reduce waste and optimize efficiency through all phases of design, construction, commissioning and operation.
Jim Sowerbrower, Chief of Construction Management, CSU Office of the Chancellor
Ken Rosenthal, Manager of Construction Services, CSU Northridge
Donald Rote, President, Rotech Consulting
This roundtable session will provide a venue for current (nine) and interested CSU Prolog users to discuss how they are using the construction management software to manage projects. As the campuses are in different stages of implementation and experience, others can gain from custom development, testing, and practice already completed. Rotech Consulting, who represents Prolog software (a Meridian product) will be present to address users’ questions and provide insight on existing and anticipated developments with the software.
In addition, an update on the pilot project at CSU East Bay where Prolog is being integrated with PeopleSoft (CMS) Financials will be included.
Wes Morgan, Energy Program Manager, CSU Office of the Chancellor
Caitlin Fager, Recycling Coordinator, San Francisco State University
Karina Garbesi, Assoc. Professor, Department of Geography and Environmental Studies, CSU East Bay
Under AB 32 (the Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006) the State of California has mandated steep reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, in particular in carbon dioxide emissions. Accordingly, the CSU has committed to track and reduce its own emissions, a process requiring the active participation of all campuses. To aid the campuses in their carbon accounting and to promote the acquisition of consistent, high quality data, this workgroup will develop a draft carbon accounting protocol for the CSU campuses. The protocol will specify the scope of reporting, a recommended carbon calculator, and methods of data collection. Building on the carbon assessment experiences of three campuses—San Francisco State University, CSU East Bay, and Cal Poly San Luis Obispo—the goal of the roundtable is to finalize preliminary recommendations to the Chancellor’s Office.
Bill Lekas, Energy Manager, San Diego State University
C. Gary Gelinas, Founder/CEO Water2Save
Ron Hardwick, Managing Principal, Water Treatment Solutions
Gasoline is $4 per gallon yet we seldom blink when we buy bottled water in the grocery or convenience market and pay $6 - $8 per gallon! Local, state, national and world water supplies are in serious jeopardy. Speakers Gelinas and Hardwick will discuss different aspects of water conservation strategies that will help you manage both campus domestic and industrial water consumption and treatment. You will learn about the latest technological advances in irrigation water management and chemical treatment systems in use today.
