BMS Communications protocols we provide for include:

  • Niagara AX
  • Lon Works
  • Bacnet
  • Modbus
  • some proprietary communications

Our Building Management Systems (BMS) are designed and Engineered to suit your site requirements or to your specifications; We offer the Niagara AX Open Platform with network “backbones” in Open Protocols such as Lon works, BACnet, Modbus and some O.E.M proprietary systems.

Our Team has experience with various vendors including Siemens, Honeywell, tac, Delta, Reliable, Distech, Alerton, and More. We provide full passwords to the owner at the end of warranty/DLP and follow up with fine tuning and environmental objective during warranty periods.

Automation strategies.

Automation Strategies and Engineering Design are selected to improve the operations and sustainability of the facility, in consultation with our client’s Consultant or Engineer.

Our services are designed to maximize reporting efficiency for Sustainability and Facility Maintenance Management. This data resource is invaluable for streamlining Audits and Assessments as well as the Day-to-day Operations of the Building. It is the foundation of the B.I.M strategy.

Commercial Building Automation:

Building Automation systems (BAS) have varying degrees of idiosyncrasies, but they all have common programming and hardware features. This means field hardware can often be sourced from alternate suppliers which work equally as well as the O.E.M device. Some of these common programming features are in built, with energy management strategies that are rarely activated (optimization for example) and are there waiting to be optimized.

Depth of Building Integration

Any Automation System will only ever be as good as it’s “depth of Integration” into the facility. The system may have all the features and capability of recent “state of the art” technology, but, if the system is superficial by engineering design, it will only provide superficial results.

The more you connect and integrate technology into the various systems of the building, the more information you can gather, and the more visibility the Engineer has.

If you are not Optimizing every technical opportunity you are falling behind your peers

When the Engineer can see more, then the decisions to make changes, are based upon evidence instead of a “hope” strategy.

Engineering Building Automation

We can often improve an existing system to offer improved returns to the Landlord.
Consideration is given to engineering of the Automation system for sustainability strategies, data collection for reporting, other system interfacing, Maintenance Management, internet functionality, and overall Facility Management practices. The Goal, is to optimize what is currently available at minimum cost.
We consider strategies such as:

  • 1. to drive the technology to maximise reporting thereby making NABERS and on going Auditing easier
  • 2. to maximise monitoring to achieve high visibility into the operation of the facility
  • 3. to maximise the return on investment of capital spent on major plant equipment
  • 4. to be scalable to enrich energy conservation strategies
  • 5. to be expandable to monitor waster, water & energy Meters
  • 6. to function creating and recording data for historical analysis
  • 7. to export data to third party software for further use
  • 8. to be active in the “now” internet applications
  • this list is not exhaustible, its up to you!
