How to enhance the value of your existing buildings

These days, carbon-conscious companies are asking themselves one key question: ‘How can I make my existing buildings more efficient?’ We think the answer is through the introduction of more efficient building technologies and digital control platforms that allow energy usage to be controlled and monitored.

There has never been a better time to invest in your existing buildings. A global shift from carbon-intensive new construction to retrofit is good for the planet, and good for business too. In fact, retrofit is often the quickest and most cost-efficient way to take control of rising energy tariffs and other operational costs. Regardless of the size or complexity of your estate, our building automation suite of hardware and cloud-based technologies add value to your built infrastructure. With our help, your estate will be smarter, easier to manage and operate – and more sustainable too.

Harness the full potential of your existing buildings

Find new ways to get value from your legacy buildings with smarter, more intelligent approaches to building management.

Embrace retrofit – it’s kinder to the planet

The embodied carbon associated with a typical new building can be the equivalent of 20 years’ worth of operational CO2 emissions – retrofitting is almost always the greener option.

Smart investment that makes commercial sense

An intelligent building management system is much more than a technology asset. It delivers a broad range of deep operational insights to inform your decision-making.

Enjoy long-term, financial benefits

With the right building technologies in place, you can collect and analyze more data, interrogate the details, and identify extra opportunities to save energy and money.

Harness the power of connected infrastructure

Connecting the disparate elements of your building infrastructure makes it easier to monitor key building systems – heating & cooling, ventilation, light - and improve operational efficiency.

Enjoy an immediate return on investment

With the right systems in place, you’ll be able to monitor usage across all systems – and quickly identify any areas of waste – which means savings can begin right away.

Combine building performance & staff wellbeing

A smarter, more connected building helps you monitor the performance of building systems and take steps to ensure they support people’s wellbeing.
