TOWN OF MIAMI LAKES JOINS THE BUILDING EFFICIENCY 305 CHALLENGE
MIAMI LAKES, FL – April 26, 2021- On April 15, 2021, the Town of Miami Lakes has joined the Miami-Dade County Building Efficiency 305 Challenge (BE305 Challenge). The Miami-Dade County Office of Resilience launched the BE305 Challenge on October 7, 2020, National Energy Efficiency Day.
The goal of the BE305 Challenge is to reduce energy and water consumption by at least 20 percent collectively in participating buildings across Miami-Dade County by 2026. By improving the energy and water management of county, municipal, university, hospital, and commercial buildings, the BE305 Challenge intends to free up business capital for more productive uses, stimulate growth for communities, and foster new business opportunities. The BE305 Challenge is a part of County’s Building Efficiency 305 Program- an effort aimed at making Miami-Dade more resilient by supporting property owners and managers in their quest to improve building performance through training, access to financial support, benchmarking, retuning (retro-commissioning), and building code education.
“The Town of Miami Lakes proudly accepted the opportunity to be part of this first-ever community-wide effort to cut building operational costs. This program aligns with the Town’s efforts to become a more resilient and sustainable community, as stated, and adopted in the Town’s Strategic Plan: Imagine Miami Lakes 2025. In addition to the potential savings, free training, educational opportunities from industry experts, and peer-to-peer networking are just some of the benefits of joining this challenge. Furthermore, it allows the Town to become acquainted with the proposed Miami Dade County Building Performance Ordinance1 for building owners and managers, which shares some components with this challenge. Edward Pidermann, Town Manager Town of Miami Lakes.”
Now, the Town of Miami Lakes/Town Hall Building is ready to take on the BE305 Challenge and lead the way as a building performance influencer!
