When designing for best-in-class resiliency, all building systems play a role in holistic enterprise integrity. A system is only as strong as its weakest link. If any of the coexisting Building Automation (BAS), Electrical, Lighting, Logical, HR, Sales & Marketing, Security, or other SMART IoT systems lack in necessary protocols to support compatible integration, compliance or best practices, the organization and assets it safeguards become jeopardized.
Before commencing a conceptual design, it is crucial we sit with the client in conversation about how they envision their investment operationally. This allows us the best upfront understanding of the desired intent of the building’s performance, connected peripherals and degree of integration. This information also allows us to lower the overall risk profile by analyzing varying risks, supporting proactive mitigation, and strengthening the design’s integrity.
Comprehensive end-to-end assessments with cyclical analysis are proven to lower capital and ongoing operational costs. From a camera on the ceiling, temperature sensor, or a boardroom’s public USB hub, to the credential in an employee’s hand or outdatedpaper visitor logbook; we understand systems have many end-points. A specialized Technology Advisor will extend benefits beyond short-term capital projects to deliver improved interoperability, reliability and increased longevity of all systems.
With clients at the heart of everything we do, it is vital to work closely in developing a clear understanding of expectations for everything from aesthetics to core system functionality, bearing in mind inputs from the buildings’ or cities’ countless sensors will ultimately be used to make authentication decisions. Only through blending and synthesizing the information we gain about the building and its occupants; will Big Data be of Big Use.
