Building owners and managers have been increasingly advancing initiatives to make their portfolio more sustainable and energy efficient. They need partners that can offer practical solutions while maintaining focus on enhancing tenant satisfaction, occupant comfort and asset value.
Navigating the age of smart buildings
Advanced analytics, smart sensors, control systems and automation are rapidly changing the way facility managers approach aspects of building operations like occupant comfort and energy consumption. With so many new technologies coming to market, however, understanding what solution is right for each situation can be a challenge. As experts in smart building design, integration and building performance management we help simplify the process for our real estate clients and deliver scalable, value driven smart building solutions.
Sustainable & reliable energy for buildings
Buildings have significant requirements for reliable electricity, heating and cooling. Solutions like eco-district heating and cooling and renewable on-site generation can cost effectively deliver the sustainable, reliable energy supply that buildings and their tenants demand. Our district energy networks serve commercial and residential buildings in several major downtown and urban centers across North America.
Sub-metering tenants to recover utility costs
Energy and other utilities represent one of the largest cost centers in buildings and the vast majority of that consumption is associated with tenant spaces. Buildings that choose to sub-meter their tenants and provide real-time access to electric, gas, water and/or steam usage can drive behavioral awareness and ensure that owners fully recover costs. Our sub-metering and tenant billing platform are trusted and used across some of the largest real estate portfolios in the world.
Savings and efficiency through energy optimization
Sustainable design and operations has become everyday focus for building owners and property managers. Our energy optimization solutions like retro-commissioning, turnkey energy performance contracting and even strategic energy purchasing strategies can produce significant triple-bottom-line impact.
Commercial buildings account for approximately 20% of greenhouse gas emissions in the US.
