Over this series of blogs, we will show you how, working with your BEMS, we can provide a great performing building that:
- has lower operational costs
- delivers higher availability and productivity
- is occupied by satisfied and engaged staff
- achieves demonstrably lower CO2 emissions and reductions in consumed utilities
- proves your commitment as a business to corporate and social responsibility issues
- provides the requisite information to act as compliance evidence for CRC and ESOS legislation.
Our strategic and planned approach to Building Energy Management Systems (BEMS) maintenance, enhancements and energy solutions delivers on all of these areas. We really can help provide better building performance and if you are a Facilities Management professional, help you perform against the KPIs of your contract, leading to increased client satisfaction.
Creating a longer term view of performance improvements for your building is essential. We look to engage with you at the very first stages of this process by providing expert advice and guidance relating to the buildings you work with. The planning and investigation stages work with real information, audits analysis and assessments; in essence, your buildings show us where there are issues. Add to this an understanding of your long term objectives and contracted KPIs will clearly highlight the intended end points.
Knowing both ends of the spectrum enables a detailed plan to be compiled to deliver operational and energy savings that are sustained by policing and by policy.
The pitfalls we see trap all too many can be avoided and a detailed plan created that can be communicated to all stakeholders and occupiers of the building. Getting them onside, after all, is the arguably the most critical element of all.
The day to day demands of building occupiers, of failing or problematic plant and by a collective of stakeholders that don’t share an understanding of what is trying to be achieved, leads more often than not, to intensive fire fighting, and not to the identification and elimination of the root cause.
