State of the art service plans that maintain the balance between cost, risk and asset value.
Your business and buildings are dynamic and need to react to ever-changing real world requirements. Energy and safety regulations are underlining the need for smarter, faster building management systems at the same time that facility managers are forced to do more with less.
Tighter budgets, aging infrastructure and higher energy costs demand a different way of thinking about your building’s operation and maintenance. Providing complete transparency, a proactive approach and responsive support, Smart Building Service Plans are our solution to your changing needs.
Increase the performance, efficiency and reliability of your building with Schneider Electric Smart Building Service Plans. Our best-in-class people, processes and technology ensure you meet the demand for high performance business and buildings.
Maintaining the balance between reliability and operational efficiency.
Beyond onsite preventive actions, Performance Plans keep continuous watch over your systems to ensure optimal, efficient and reliable operating conditions. Using advanced sensing and analytic capabilities, we can detect anomalies in operating data to predict failure before it happens.
Maintaining the balance between reliability and energy efficiency.
Insight Plans leverage the existing Performance Plan infrastructure to minimize upfront costs and save energy. Your building performance needs are prioritized and energy usage is managed in near real-time utilizing adaptive algorithms to provide maximum savings without sacrificing comfort.
New Life for Aging Facilities: Four Strategies for Future-Proofing Older Buildings
By Kurt Gokbudak
A top priority for building owners and managers of aging buildings is to create a competitive, productive, and efficient environment for their tenants. This is a challenge because in these older facilities – whether they are office buildings, hotels, or educational institutions – the infrastructures and systems are often outdated and inadequate. Consequently, maintenance and operations costs are high, space utilization is inefficient and poorly managed, and innovative technology is lacking. This white paper explores four strategies for converting existing facilities into smart buildings that efficiently and cost-effectively address the current and future needs of demanding tenants.
Predictive Maintenance Strategy for Building Operations: A Better Approach
by Robert Hemmerdinger
Maintenance costs account for almost as large a percentage of a facility’s operating budget as energy expenses. But usually this money is spent inefficiently with a reactive “wait till it breaks” approach. This paper shows how a proactive, predictive maintenance approach coupled with analytics can reduce a building’s maintenance and energy costs by up to 20%.The pros and cons of different approaches to maintenance are discussed, as well as practical guidance on deciding whether to develop a smart services plan in-house or outsource it.
Optimizing Buildings Using Analytics and Engineering Expertise
By Brandy Moore
When fully utilized, Building Management Systems (BMS) offer facility managers many advantages. Harnessing building data to help correct root-cause energy inefficiencies is one area that is increasingly important yet challenging. This paper shows how leveraging BMS data through building data analytics software and combining it with expert engineering services creates actionable intelligence that can reduce HVAC energy costs by up to 30%.
3 Ways Commissioning Increases Building Management System Efficiency
By Eaishvarya Sharma
A building in operation experiences natural wear and tear of its systems and an overall decline in performance with time. While it is possible to limit performance decline through maintenance, it remains difficult to eliminate it all together. Building management is made further difficult by the strains of budget limitations, energy expenses, and changes to operating conditions. Commissioning, a process of recalibrating building systems to optimal performance requirements, is a low-cost, high return on investment solution estimated to deliver energy savings between 5 and 25%.
Valves and Actuators: Maintaining the Foundation of High Performance Buildings
By Dave Savage and Mark Sarna
Control valves and actuators are the unsung and unseen heroes of building management systems. They control a large amount of the 35% of energy used in a building’s HVAC system. Yet they are routinely ignored when it comes to system maintenance. This paper explains how control loop and valve service inspection can save time and money. Proactive, predictive valve maintenance programs are also discussed.
