From Plan to Retro Fit

From Plan to Retro Fit

Constantly rising energy prices, coupled with the corporate responsibility to reduce carbon emissions, means using a building management system (BMS) makes total sense.

Fitting the systems to new buildings has never posed much of a problem as collaboration between architect, building owner, prospective tenants and the solutions provider is normally initiated at project inception. Hereby allowing adequate planning and contingencies to avoid any disruption or delays in savings delivery.

However many companies of all sizes in all sectors live in older buildings that don’t have the benefit of building management systems. The solution means retrofitting a BMS.

The prospect of this can at first seem daunting. Managing means monitoring and recording related data. This applies to heating, lighting and all relevant sub-systems, electrical, data-centric etc. all of which needs some kind of connection to the control system.

Installation conjures up images of companies working around wires and installation engineers, as well as possible disruption to business. Installation of wired systems is often done out of normal business hours because of this, which can mean out-of-normal-working-hours rates.

When retrofitting its building management system, SIS delivers a carefully planned solution via its tried and tested project process. This involves:
