Building Management Systems

Building management systems give you complete control over the environment in your building. Using integrated software and hardware, they allow the user to monitor and control the energy, lighting, security, and HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) systems. Building management systems can also be used to control fire safety systems such as alarms and sprinklers, as well as access control systems that allow a controller to monitor who enters and exits a building.

Environmental control is increasingly important. As energy prices continue to rise, the importance of controlling energy costs can't be overestimated. Building management systems are a perfect way to monitor energy use, and cut down on energy wastage. Lighting, heating and air conditioning across a whole building, or complex, can be controlled from one central location. This will save you time and money, and allow you to make informed and instant decisions about energy usage.

Who Can Benefit From Building Management Systems?

Whether you operate a large industrial site, a housing complex, or a nursing home, building management systems can make your task easier and more cost-efficient. Systems are tailored for use by small, medium and large enterprises, and provide benefits for both the owner and their tenants or staff.

  • You'll benefit from centralised control, and advanced reporting information. You can monitor all of your building's mechanical and electrical equipment from your own office. You'll see instantly if a fault develops, making maintenance and repairs easier than ever.
  • A property that has a building management system will also have a higher rental and re-sale value, so they can be a real investment for the future of your business.
  • If you use building management systems for a workplace, you can create a more pleasant working environment, whatever the external temperature is. When your staff are happy, they'll be more productive and less likely to be absent due to sickness.
  • Your building's tenants will benefit from more reliable heating, lighting and ventilation systems. Individual rooms can still have their own controls if required, but usage can be restricted to pre-set parameters.
