Modern day technology, IoT and data analytics has now made it possible to effectively manage buildings without having to step foot on site, easing the pressure on teams by giving them the ability to control their building operations virtually.
In a TED talk-style video series for the property industry, our EMEA General Manager Paul Walsh was given the opportunity to discuss how building analytics can help deliver triple bottom line, one byte at a time, for large real estate owners. Watch it here.
COVID-19 has hit airport operators and airlines hard, and there is no telling when business will get back to normal. As foot and air traffic plummets and international airports start shutting down completely, airport operators are under immense pressure to cut costs and ride out the turbulence. CIM’s David Walsh suggests some quick and easy wins to be found in the airport plant room that will help slash unnecessary operational costs and build future resilience.
The core function of a BMS is to control hundreds of pieces of plant, equipment and lighting, yet recently, BMS providers have started adding ‘building analytics’ modules to their offering. When you consider the purpose of a BMS is to control a building, not to analyse its performance, it becomes obvious why these analytics solutions also come up severely wanting.
We’re continuing our “Meet the Team” series this week by introducing Project Engineer, Mehreen Ashraf. As companies look to implement their strategies to achieve their Net Zero commitments, CIM engineers like Mehreen are uniquely positioned to deliver an impact using...
In this time of digital transformation, where customers demand more, competition is rife and multi-directional, and asset value is dictated by a wider variety of factors than ever before, buildings have, it could be argued, grown more fragile still. Especially when you throw in the current state of the climate, and real estate’s immense responsibility in controlling the situation.
By using data more intelligently with the help of building analytics, shopping centre operators are discovering how to quickly improve the operational performance of their assets and channel the savings into delivering a better shopping experience.
If we were to line up all of the lessons we need to learn about sustainability in real estate, it would make for an endless, often damning, parade. But, what if there is just one lesson which negates the need for us to transmit all of the others? Wouldn’t that make the whole idea of sustainability more palatable? I’m talking, of course, about profit.
Precisely controlling environmental conditions takes an entirely new perspective when it comes to protecting the condition and longevity of precious artefacts in museums. CIM engineer Arghya Sen discusses how some of the old ways of environmental control in museums are being replaced by a new and more sustainable way of thinking.
The building management industry is the latest to experience digital transformation, following suit from the transport and retail industry – but how exactly do you digitise a building, and what are the benefits?
David Walsh, Founder and CEO As I reflect on 2019, it's encouraging to see just how rapidly the property sector is transforming. People are starting to care more about climate change as they become more aware of, and unfortunately experience themselves, associated...
Scott Beauman, Senior Mechanical Engineer As an engineer who spent the better part of a decade working as a building services engineer before realising the power of building analytics, I have two pieces of advice to the next generation of engineers: pay attention in...
