UI Facilities Management was recently selected for a 2018 APPA Effective and Innovative Practices Award for its Fault Detection and Diagnostics Program. The award was presented during the 2018 APPA Annual Conference in Washington, D.C., on Aug. 3.

In 2014, University of Iowa Facilities Management began studying a growing evolution in building systems management: fault detection and diagnostics (FDD) technology. After visiting Microsoft’s Redmond Campus and seeing the substantial impact FDD had on its facilities operation, the UI embarked on a groundbreaking and large-scale effort to implement FDD in a campus environment. Since March 2017, FDD has been implemented in 49 buildings across the UI campus.
