BeMS (Building energy Management Systems) are typically associated with the control of HVAC (Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning) in commercial buildings, and this has been their primary role in the eyes of most clients and operators. Over the past number of years, we have now taken this to another level with the introduction of the ‘Optimised BeMS’ proposition.
While HVAC control and the comfort of the occupants is the primary focus of BeMS many clients are not taking advantage of the underlying infrastructure that they have within these buildings that, if optimised, could provide a multitude of benefits. Operational savings in the form of energy, maintenance and extending the life of assets can be realised from this infrastructure in most buildings.
Getting data out of a BeMS system is one thing, turning this data into information that drives business outcomes is what Optimised BeMS has been developed to deliver.
Through the combination of our skilled engineering team who undertake BeMS optimisation works on site, through to our remote Optimised Bureau and Energy teams that provide the ongoing insights and controls engineering we ensure buildings perform as well as their connected assets allow. We combine this expertise with a range of technologies including Optimised aM&T, Optimised Analytics, Optimised DSM (Demand Side Management) and Optimised Bureau to drive down the energy consumption, reduce cost and ultimately deliver an improved environment for the occupants.
The net result for most clients is that we deliver energy savings equating to
20-25% of the HVAC consumption and deliver an ROI of less than 12 months.

This saving is not a one off, but one that can be maintained year on year through the Optimised Bureau services.
Optimised BeMS has been successfully deployed in large single buildings right through to multi-site environments and rolled out nationally and across Europe. It is suited to any client that is looking to increase the value of BeMS in their building or estate, and the great thing is, we are agnostic to the BeMS system that is installed. We have now delivered some great savings and operational benefits to our clients in the public sector, hospitality, commercial real estate, manufacturing and retail markets.
