Building Intelligence (BI) Design

Whether for business or institutions, and other complex facilities, Building Intelligence (BI) delivers multi-system monitoring and control through a combination of data collection and analytics, a software application running over a converged network, and an established set of protocols for the integration of and workflow between systems.

BI aligns a building with the expectations and demands of ‘globally-competent’ users – people with the knowledge, skill and disposition necessary to navigate and succeed in today’s interconnected world. Globally-competent people expect sustainable and energy-efficient buildings, autonomous control of their space and activities, and technologically-advanced integrations similar to their homes and cars.

When full BI is leveraged, real savings are realized, but there is more at stake – an investment in BI suits the mission for a building with a forward-looking live/work culture that both owners and occupants can be invested in.

An established set of protocols dictates information workflows to the various IP-based systems to enable them to integrate and intelligently exchange meaningful and actionable data, for multi-system monitoring and control purposes. An “enterprise” approach to system design allows for control and monitoring of energy usage over multiple sites.

The exchange of big data is the driver of reduced cost and consumption and increased building capacity and comfort.

By optimizing a building’s fiscal, environmental and operational performance, BI brings differentiation and competitive advantage to a project. A BI System requires an Intelligent Systems Digital Infrastructure, ie: a converged base building network, building Wireless Network (“WiFi”) and a Distributed Antennae System (“DAS”), plus a high level of Integration and Interoperability (consolidation of building data onto a single/central dashboard). BI work flow automation is developed based on use-cases that leverage the digital infrastructure and control capabilities.
