The built environment is increasingly dependent on sophisticated, connected controls for heating and air conditioning, energy management, lighting and many other systems. Unfortunately, many of these controls function in silos, with little interoperability and integration. A master systems integration strategy utilizing advanced controls platforms can give owners and operators the connectivity and access to the data they need to optimize operating costs, use energy more efficiently and address the pressing need to reduce carbon emissions.

And, without any doubt, we succeeded!

COVID has introduced us to new challenges and priorities and caused us to reconsider and re-examine operational and workplace strategies at our facilities. Achieving operations that balance economic, social, and environmental goals is one of the major outcomes the building industry is facing resulting from the pandemic.
