Building for the Future: Electric Cooperative Facility Planning

Electric Cooperatives are facing new challenges with respect to facilities including security, growth, diversified services (i.e. fiber), technology, functionality, and aging buildings. Cooperative Building Solutions will present solutions to these challenges by discussing the Facility Planning Process. CBS will provide examples of how facility challenges have been identified and resolved through the Facility Planning Process. The presentation will address current facility trends, a checklist for the planning process, and provide case studies from cooperatives on facility planning.
