BuildingIQ partners with BUILDINGSENSE
BuildingIQ last week announced a partnership with Perth-based BUILDINGSENSE. The partnership combines BuildingIQ’s data analytics, intelligent modeling, and predictive controls to BUILDINGSENSE’s solutions. It enables BuildingIQ to leverage data from systems other than heating, venting, and air-conditioning (HVAC).
The agreement will increase BuildingIQ’s presence in Western Australia and expand the capabilities of its cloud-based platform to provide a unique set of technology-enabled services for the industry.
BuildingIQ’s 5i platform allows BUILDINGSENSE to finely tune buildings both pre and post-occupancy for better energy performance. It also empowers the incoming operations team with a cloud-based solution that will achieve energy efficiency, operational and tenant comfort goals by fine-tuning building controls as people start occupying a structure and create new heat loads.
“This partnership creates opportunities for us to help shape the Australian market’s perception about the role of software and predictive control in sustainable structures,” says Michael Nark, BuildingIQ president and CEO.
“Access to SAUTER’s independent BACnet building management system and room controllers allows the 5i platform to gather data and control a building at the most granular zone level possible. This will ensure that from an early stage of a building’s lifecycle, we are able to continuously commission building controls in order to optimise energy and comfort as the building fills with tenants and occupancy patterns are established.”
Hari Singh, BUILDINGSENSE’s CEO and founder adds, “We believe that the entire process of new building construction has to be reimagined. Partnering with BuildingIQ means we can use energy intelligence to shape the personality of a building as soon as it’s ready for occupancy – keeping it tuned for balancing energy savings, tenant comfort, and operational efficiency.”
Room controllers are vital components to the design of both Australian and European buildings. Aggregation of data at the room-level in combination with BuildingIQ’s advanced modeling, diagnostic, and measurement and verification capabilities will add unparalleled transparency to the heating and cooling operations of buildings across Western Australia.
The partnership follows BuildingIQ’s acquisition of Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO)’s core technology this year, and it’s new partnership with AMP Technologies, announced in April.
