Developed by The City University of New York’s Building Performance Lab

With the support of The U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy

We’re excited to announce that CUNY BPL is developing BuildingCoach, a new online training program that brings together on-demand operations a maintenance modules with small group coaching sessions for advanced operators and managers in facilities with building automation systems.

What makes the program unique is the coaching element, based on BPL’s 5+ years of experience coaching building operators in NYC and DC. Participants share near-real-time data from their buildings with their coaches and together, they analyze trend charts for savings opportunities, make a plan to address them, and review results.

In the space of weeks, participants start to see real changes in their facilities, and they master the skills and tools they need to continue to optimize their building systems past the program’s completion.

For more information and a full list of topics covered in the curriculum, please visit our website:


The Pilot: Registration begins early 2022

The pilot program will be offered free of charge to 100+ advanced operators and managers enrolled in teams of 2-3 staff members per building. Registration for the first cohort will begin in early 2022 with the first cohort to begin in April. The pilot will continue throughout the year with at least two more cohorts.

The pilot will not be open to the public and space is limited – if you or someone you know would like to be considered for participation, please contact us.
