Associate Director, Zone B - Land, Buildings, and Real Estate
Building management is a vital aspect to supporting sustainability efforts on campus. Rami Abdelhadi, who leads facilities management for Zone B, upholds various conservation initiatives while supporting the needs of building managers and occupants. On a daily basis, he helps to manage over four million square feet of space, including museums, data centers, offices, and parking garages, among others, to ensure energy and water efficiency. Rami has been collaborating with the Facilities Energy Management (FEM) team on a project for the Lorey Lokey building as part of the Whole Building Energy Retrofit Program (WBERP), which has been identified as one of Stanford’s most energy-intensive buildings. Once complete, the retrofit is expected to save over 301,000 kilowatt hours of electricity (kWh) and 1,837,000 energy per square foot (kBtu) per year.
In addition to supporting building operations, Rami has been instrumental in managing emergency preparedness and response for COVID-19 safety efforts on behalf of Land, Buildings, and Real Estate. Some actions include managing emergency supplies, supporting enhanced cleaning efforts, and working on communication efforts as a member of the public health response committee.
