Building “smart” buildings is what we do, and it’s more than a trend. Intelligent facilities are a sound investment in the future. At the heart of our buildings is an infrastructure of lighting, communications, HVAC and security systems operating over a single IP-enabled network. Our team of highly skilled technical specialists can help you plan and integrate a building-wide system that saves energy and is easy manage, both in your existing buildings and new construction projects.
When planning and designing a new building, there are several things our team can do to make it energy efficient from the start of its life. Effective daylighting uses natural light from skylights and windows to offset electrical loads during daytime. Designed and implemented properly, it can have a drastic effect on your monthly energy bill. Making use of motion controlled occupancy sensors, manual and daylight controlled dimmer switches, and time scheduling, your building won’t be wasting energy by lighting an empty room.
Retrofitting your building with new state-of-the-art electrical supplies is a simple and effective way to reduce the energy footprint. Swapping out lamps and ballasts takes minutes and the new fixture installs directly into the old housing. With these upgrades it is possible to reduce energy usage by up to 67 percent and the average return on investment seen by our clients is between 17 and 45 percent.
