Not long ago, managing or owning a building was a very different role than it is today. Building managers then didn’t have access to the kind of information that automation systems can now provide. With today’s modern, technologically-dependent environment, managing a building, which includes maintaining, supervising, and dictating a building’s heating, lighting, security, HVAC systems, and other tasks that can change on a day-to-day basis, is easier and simpler. Smart building automation systems (BAS) help building managers turn advanced buildings from facilitators of energy management to “dynamic ecosystems of connected assets, energy, environment, processes, services and occupants.”
Despite the revolutionary advances in BAS technology, they are yet to be universally adopted into the framework of buildings old-and-new. In many traditional buildings, the HVAC and lighting systems still operate independently of each other, making any kind of cross-communication just about impossible. But, more recently, BAS technology has become so intuitive that it is now possible for building owners and managers to effectively ‘carry their entire building’ with them wherever they go. Thanks to IoT, BAS can leverage the power of the internet and empower building owners and managers to control their building’s many systems wherever and whenever they need to. With all of the information, commands, and data points of the building collected on any remote control device, one can manage their building better than ever before.
While BAS may not be prominent yet, it’s only a matter of time before more building owners and managers begin to adopt these revolutionary devices into the framework of the buildings they work in. To assist companies in finding accomplished building automation solution providers and companies, Construction Tech Review has compiled a list of leading building automation firms that are at the top of their game. The enlisted organizations are addressing building automation challenges and transforming the construction operations and processes at the convergence of several disruptive technologies. Besides, the magazine also comprises insights from thought leaders in the sector on the industry trends, best practices, recent innovations, and their advice for the aspiring CIOs.
