Intelligent Building Management systems
Kedington are pioneers in the area of Intelligent Building Management Systems and Building Management Systems (BMS) in Ireland.
Sometimes known as Smart Buildings, or Smart Building Management, this new movement is changing the way buildings are designed in every sector. Kedington are embracing this new movement across commercial, industrial, institutional and domestic buildings. We have deep skills and experience in both energy management systems and intelligent building controls.
Whether you’re a building owner or a tenant, there’s a powerful case for improving energy efficiency, reducing occupancy cost and improving productivity. However, it’s not widely known that the advantages of today’s affordable smart building management technologies easily justify the outlay. For example, knowing the right time to repair or replace equipment extends machinery life and reduces facility staff, operations and replacement costs. Smart building management systems detect when a piece of equipment is close to failure and alert facilities personnel. In extreme cases, they can prevent full-scale building system failures.
The purpose of Intelligent Building Controls or Energy Management Systems is to control, monitor and optimise building services e.g., lighting; heating; security, CCTV and alarm systems, access control, audio-visual and entertainment systems, ventilation, filtration and climate control etc.
The impact on facilities planning and facilities management is potentially immense. Any facilities managers considering premises development or site relocation should also consider the opportunities presented by Intelligent Buildings technology and concepts.
