Our clients are in many industries but most have to manage large campuses. Both Universities and Corporate Facilities must provide utilities to their campus where they may have dozens to hundreds of buildings with diverse needs. These buildings support varied functions such as research, manufacturing, cold storage, warehousing, hospital, offices, cafeterias, gymnasiums and more. Each building has a different needs and challenges – it may be the comfort of tenants, or maintaining a specific temperature or humidity, or the need for 10 air changes an hour in the space. Facilities managers deal with a broad range of challenges providing water, air, steam, gas, and electricity to their buildings.
Key challenges for Campuses and Facilities are:
- 100% reliable flow of utilities
- Comfort for the occupants
- Safety for occupants and workers
- Preventative and Predictive Maintenance
- Sustainability – Drive down consumption of Utilities
- Optimization of the equipment
- Training for the maintenance and engineering teams
How do campuses manage these services efficiently and cost effectively? Most facilities have four to five different control systems, and the staff and training needed is cost prohibitive. The need to have three or four outside contractors that are experts with each system is difficult to manage.
