The BP Group has launched the Integrated Building Technologies (IBT) division. Its mandate is to assist property owners and managers in recommissioning, application engineering and HVAC system retrofit efforts, according to the company.
The full cycle of services offered by IBT are intended to promote efficiency and connect intelligence buildings, HVAC maintenance and analytics. The system will detect issues, pinpoint savings, implement superior systems and meet maintenance needs with hard data, which is turned into easy to interpret and actionable reports.
Use of the data and analytics can lower operational and maintenance expenses and improve airflow. This improves the productivity of workers in the building and is a selling point.
The importance of data and analytics in the relationship between utilities and their commercial customers was discussed last month at intelligentutility.com.
