January Chapter Meeting

Wednesday, Jan. 9th

Topic: Achieve peak building performance by engaging building owners and operators through 
the Commissioning and Retro-commissioning processes 

One of the most prevalent issues in engineering/construction industry is the disconnect that can exist between the design, construction, and operational phases of a facility. There are a handful of key points during a project that can have long lasting impact on the performance of a facility. Project leaders who build these critical process into their work can realize substantial financial savings for the organizations they work for.

Jesse Barnum, Building Services Manager St. Luke’s Meridian Medical Center Jesse thought he knew what he wanted to be when he grew up, so he earned a B.A in Philosophy from Boise State University along with German, Latin, and History minors. He didn’t realize that  philosophy majors were notoriously unemployable, so he decided to earn M.S. in Technology from Purdue University. Philosophy and Technology degrees may seem like an odd mix, but it’s worked out better than ex-pected and he has learned to develop dynamic solutions to the unique problems faced in the health care physical environment. Jesse is also a Certified Healthcare Facility Manager. Jesse is now the manager for the Building Services Department at St. Luke’s Meridian Medical Center, where the nuts and bolts of building operations really matter to the patients he’s working for. He is passionate about elevating the quality of patient care by pursuing better ways to design and manage health care facilities. Jesse and his wife Corey keep busy by raising their three kids, Arthur (6yo), Ed-mund (2yo), and Edith  newborn). They enjoy cooking and baking, they are avid gar-deners, and are working toward having a small farm someday.
