Building Management Systems

Monitor your buildings consumption with high efficiency

Buildings use over 40% of all electricity consumed in the world and are the highest producer of Co2 emissions. Building Management Systems offer the building owner a solution to eliminated wastage in all areas. Installing a Building Management System will not only save you money but will also add value to the living or working experience of your buildings users.

The system is typically a computer-based monitoring system which controls areas of energy and water use. In addition, some systems extend to monitoring security and fire systems plus access systems, lifts and elevators. In short, your entire building can be controlled from a central point.

In recent years, large established computer companies like IBM have realised the value in offering Building Management Systems (BMS) to companies with large property portfolios but smaller customised systems are also available to suite your building design or requirements.
