BOMA Ottawa, in partnership with Algonquin College, are proud to offer again an education series for building operators and other professionals in Commercial Real Estate.

The Building Systems Essentials is a series of half day “hands-on” seminars aimed to help Building Operators better understand the latest in how buildings function or to provide an overview to Commercial Real Estate professionals to better represent their buildings.

An electrical system, within the context of a building, is a network of conductors and equipment designed to carry, distribute and convert electrical power safely from the point of delivery to the various loads around the building that consume the electrical energy.
