According to BSRIA the global Building Energy Management Systems (BeMS) market could reach $7 billion by 2020. Good news for BeMS manufacturers you might say, but quantity of course does not always equal quality. At global associates we believe quality (or lack of) has been the Achilles’ heel of the BeMS industry for too long. Lack of quality during installation and commissioning results in significantly higher running costs. We estimate a 20-40% penalty in overall TCO as a result. Attention to detail is therefore crucial. A well designed and maintained BeMS will not only pay for itself over time in energy savings, but also will improve the environment for its occupants, and lead to greater productivity.
In our last blog we highlighted the areas in which global associates specialises in; Projects & Servicing, Energy, and IoT & Integration. Here we will explain a bit more about our Projects & Servicing offering and demonstrate why global associates was named Independent Building Controls and BeMS Installer of the Year at The BCIA Awards 2017, and also won the Technical Innovation of the Year – Products category – for global spaces in 2018.
Some organisations mistakenly think that choosing a BeMS system, installing it and sitting back to let it do its work will help them improve their building’s energy efficiency. It’s not as simple as that, not by a long shot, but it is our aim to help you make it simple by doing the hard work for our clients. At global associates we can offer a unique package that will deliver a solution suited to your demands and budget, without curtailing the quality.
We have been managing projects for more than 20 years and have extensive experience working across multiple industry sectors, including; Pharmaceutical, Technology & Telecommunications, Retail, Commercial Property, Leisure, Education, Public Sector, Hospitality, Manufacturing, Finance, Historic Sites and Large Retail Estates.Our team of highly trained and qualified project managers, leverage state-of-the-art technology and processes in order to manage projects and deliver successful outcomes. We also recognise the ever-changing landscape of technology, regulation and standards, placing global associates in an ideal position to offer ongoing advisory and design services to our clients. The multi-disciplinary team at global associates can deliver solutions for a modern and effective BeMS with the ability to integrate various manufacturers and enterprise IT platforms.
Support and monitoring
The work doesn’t stop after the BeMS has been installed either. Ongoing control is important if you are going to get the best out of your BeMS. That is why global associates offers a support and monitoring service specifically designed to enhance your building environment, optimise systems operations, increase management intelligence and control, whilst also reducing system downtime and optimising energy consumption. A well controlled BeMS can result in heating bills up to 35% lower than in a poorly controlled building.
