Better Data, Better Building Performance

By Krithika Chandrasekar on Feb 6, 2019 9:31:25 AM

"Data is King." That’s one phrase we have heard multiple times and when it comes to buildings, we agree that data and its analysis is of great importance. For Facility Managers, especially, building data is essential as it is a comprehensive way of understanding the functioning of the building and its weak spots. However, good data is also the most overlooked aspect in Building Management. While there are many advanced data collection systems that can provide facility managers with comprehensive data reports there are very few BMS systems that provide this data in an easy to understand format with actionable insights. 

In this blog we look at why good data is important for efficient Building Management and how 75F's Building Intelligence System can provide you comprehensive data analytics and help you improve your building.

How Can Class B Buildings Get Smarter?

By Sarah Baker on Oct 17, 2018 7:52:14 AM

Could your office building be described as… average? Maybe it doesn’t have a fountain in the lobby, or a view of the ocean – but you have four solid walls, a non-leaking roof, and only a few drafty cubicles. Have you ever tried to make your building work with an HVAC hack? Maybe you even taped a piece of cardboard over the vent to manage the airflow. That would be pretty clever of you, MacGyver.

So, if your office building is around 10-20 years old, has some wear and tear, but is generally in good shape, you probably have a Class B building. This is good news. Investors tend to target these buildings since, with a few upgrades, they can easily become Class B+ and compete readily with Class A properties. One of those upgrades is making your Class B smart – and it’s probably easier than you think.

When considering smart building automation solutions (BAS), people often think their buildings are:

  • Too small
  • Too big
  • Too old 
  • Too new

Occupant Experience: 3 Reasons Why the Air in Commercial Real Estate Buildings Matters

By John Nye on Jul 6, 2018 2:51:35 PM


Indoor air quality (IAQ) is likely to be 2-5x worse than outdoor  air quality. Since most people spend 90% of their time indoors, the air in your commercial real estate building can significantly affect tenant/customer health, cognitive ability, comfort & productivity!  Better air quality also means employees take 30%  fewer short-term leaves !
 

Thankfully, with the introduction of the Internet of Things (IoT), you can improve the air in your commercial real estate buildings with 75F building automation solutions, all while cutting your HVAC costs by 30-50% and receiving a return on your investment in as little as a year! Match the cut in operational expenses and increase in property value with improved air quality management (and a great occupant experience) and you have a smart building that works for you and your tenants, not the other way around!
