In the latest issue of MBS magazine Our own Technical Director Andy Devine explains the capabilities of how using data from a building-management system can quickly identify strategies for improving energy efficiency of building-services systems.
It is widely known that a large number of commercial buildings are failing to perform as intended. Not only that, but energy costs are on the increase, so, as a result, organisations are keen to find sustainable solutions which save energy and reduce the lifetime costs of the building.
