Pressure is increasing from regulators and stakeholders for society and businesses to transition to a low carbon economy. Sustainably targets are being set for existing buildings and new building construction.

Building construction and operations account for nearly 40 percent of global energy-related CO2 emissions, making them one of the most significant contributors to climate change. With population growth, urbanization, and the increased need for cooling in a warming world, the global building stock is expected to double by 2060. Without significant improvements in energy efficiency and decarbonization of energy use, energy demand for buildings will continue to drive increases in carbon emissions.

In response, public company building owners are adopting net zero-emission goals for their facilities.These goals are nearly impossible to achieve without a technology upgrade. One of the biggest challenges building owners face is using and connecting their existing legacy systems in a technology upgrade. Most buildings already have a large technology investment—that owners don’t want to lose—but ultimately need the assistance in upgrading and standardizing, so these technologies can work together. Building owners need a reliable partner who can coordinate the management of their technology upgrade.

Founded in 1967, Jackson Control is national systems integrator and distributor of building technologies. The firm helps clients achieve efficiency and sustainability goals by serving as a trusted advisor and providing the ultimate open platform, best-in-class, smart building solution.

“We help our clients flourish in the challenging environment of building technology.
We aim to be one of the country’s top comprehensive building controls distributors by delivering cutting-edge products and services, fast response technical expertise, and a satisfying career for our employees,” Greg Ericksen, Chairman & CEO.

It enables the integration for a variety of diverse systems, including lighting, security, and HVAC, which may all be integrated into a single platform

A typical collaboration starts with creating a standard for their clients building systems. Once a standard is set, buildings can be equipped and connected with the proper technologies, allowing clients to better manage and monitor their facilities. “We standardize on the Niagara platform, which offers building owners an end-to-end perspective and understanding of how the structure operates. It enables the integration for a variety of diverse systems, including lighting, security, and HVAC, which may all be integrated into a single platform,” said Ericksen. This approach helps clients save time and cost on managing various platforms.

Using an open-platform, Jackson Control helps clients seamlessly integrate building efficiency, building security, and building health into one open system. This approach gives building owners and facility managers the visibility needed to manage a smart building. Post standardization, Jackson provides clients with remote access to technological solutions for building maintenance. The solutions are built to achieve efficiency goals and allow for future improvements, resulting in a higher ROI.

Jackson Control provides innovative, cost-effective control solutions and web-based facility integration design across a spectrum of facility types including commercial buildings, schools, universities, government facilities and retail locations. “We allow customers to outsource the management of their building technology by taking the role as their control consultant of record. We have an established a network of preferred installation and service contractors that we work with nationwide. They are the best contractors in the business and appreciate the unique intellectual property that we delivery for state-of-the-art building systems.”Greg Ericksen, Chairman & CEO.

With such a unique approach, the company caters to clients across all industries. They have achieved great success in the medical office building space and federal office building space, giving building owners the oversight and management of their building systems needed to achieve efficiency goals.

There are estimated to be 34 million buildings in the United States and less than one million have been upgraded to an open platform on Niagara. Eventually, all of these buildings will need to be upgraded. “Our purpose-retrofit buildings to save the planet.” Greg Ericksen, Chairman & CEO.
