From Reactive to Proactive: A Shift in Smart Building Technology

By Gaurav Burman on Sep 12, 2017 10:53:33 AM


With rapid advances in technology, buildings are no longer perceived merely as brick and mortar. Organizations are beginning to rethink the role facilities play in achieving their sustainability goals, optimizing their workforce productivity and improving employee health.

But that's just part of the story. By applying the right set of tools, we can pull powerful insights from the vast amount of data garnered from a building. We can see patterns, we can build a model, and we can predict. We can make your building management predictive and proactive!

Triple Net Lease (NNN) vs. Gross Lease - Who Pays for HVAC?

By Michael Moriarity on Aug 23, 2017 12:01:29 PM
