We strive to work with the facility operations staff as a team to lower energy use, improve equipment operation, and create a healthy and comfortable indoor environment for the building occupants.
For building portfolios, Group14 develops a Building Automation System Standard which includes requirements for standard system architecture, communication protocol, graphics, reports, point naming, standard control sequences for common equipment, and other key components. Our depth of experience with SkySpark software allows us to commission and monitor the upgraded BAS in detail.
