Commercial buildings, including retail spaces, office buildings, warehouses, and more, fill New York City. Each building’s systems must be managed to remain in suitable working conditions for its occupants and these needs can vary greatly. This is because the use of each commercial building requires different conditions. It’s easy to see how a healthcare facility or university that operates 24 hours a day would have specific and unique needs for its automation systems, compared to an office building or a retail store. There are also manufacturing facilities in commercial buildings that manage extreme temperatures, good air quality, and typically have many more components to manage. All of these commercial buildings have one common critical need: a building automation system (or building management system) to control its systems.
New York City’s hot summers and frigid winters are very demanding on the buildings’ HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) control systems and their operators. Ensuring that the occupants of your building or facility are comfortable and safe requires regular maintenance, management, and monitoring of your HVAC system.
We’ve helped thousands of facility managers in New York City and beyond upgrade their building management system (BMS). There are a handful of common problems that indicate to a facility or building manager that it’s time to upgrade their BMS. Our experience & expertise in building automation systems has revealed these 4 signs that you need to upgrade your BMS.
What Are Building Control Systems? Almost every commercial & residential building including skyscrapers, office buildings, multi-family buildings, warehouses, manufacturing plants, etc. uses some form of technology to manage their building’s energy efficiency, security, & more. More advanced technology enables building managers to control all of their building’s systems from one remotely accessible control panel. This […]
There are more than one million buildings in New York City, 299 of them being skyscrapers. We estimate that 70-80% of these commercial & residential buildings are due for a building management system upgrade, or will be soon.
Heating, Ventilation, & Air Conditioning (HVAC) Systems are the core of comfort and energy performance in buildings & industrial facilities. Historically, controlling HVAC systems was an intensive & time-consuming manual process. There was typically a decision to be made between energy efficiency or comfort.
