PROJECT TYPES

PROJECT TYPES

We have extensive experience with scale projects and can address a variety of project-types including new development, existing portfolios or smart community planning. We always work to create a unique value proposition for each project and organization.

New Building Development

Core building systems (HVAC, Lighting, Metering, etc.) technology has materially changed in recent years, which create both risk and opportunity for your development's financial and strategic objectives. When properly addressed, the current generation of core building systems can be leveraged to create numerous advantages such as:

  • Data driven decision making
  • Higher asset utilization
  • Reduced capital & operational cost structure
  • Risk identification and management
  • Brand support and enhancement
  • Sustainability

Existing Portfolios

Existing portfolios are often caught in a financial paradox with the need or desire to improve customer experience, lower operational costs and become more sustainable – without spending substantial capital. History has shown the way to address that financial paradox is with low cost, high value solutions that focus on softer technology and human behavior. Using this approach should lead you to a “data driven” portfolio where you get, analyze and act on previously untapped data through cloud-based building analytics.

Cities & Communities

Fundamentally, smart communities are about establishing common goals, getting broad participation and having credible measurement. This requires diverse knowledge of buildings, people and technology. A community can be defined in a variety of ways including a city, a campus, an office park, an apartment complex or even an office portfolio throughout the country. Within urban communities the use of sustainability as a means of economic development is on the rise.

NEW BUILDING DEVELOPMENT

Core building systems (HVAC, Lighting, Metering, etc.) technology market has materially changed in recent years, which creates both risk and opportunity for your development’s financial and strategic objectives.

These changes have occurred and continue to occur faster than the traditional real estate support structure such as architects, engineers and contractors could keep up. Modern-day controls systems such as HVAC, lighting, and metering, are run by computer servers, networks and remote access yet most organizations have yet to integrate information technology (IT) into design, construction and operations and have not subsequently not aligned internal departments. This creates risks that the generational skills gap will drive greater capital expenses or project delays and then further lead to rising operational and maintenance costs. Additionally, there are increasing cyber security risks that can be addressed during development.

However, when properly addressed core building systems can be leveraged to create numerous advantages such as:

- Data driven decision-making
- Higher asset utilization
- Reduced capital & operational cost structure
- Risk identification and management
- Brand support and enhancement
- Sustainability

We have a proven 5 step process that has been applied to billions of dollars in real estate development projects including “the smartest office building in America”, corporate headquarters, dense residential, mixed use and other project types.

EXISTING PORTFOLIOS

Existing portfolios are often caught in a financial paradox with the need or desire to improve customer experience, lower operational costs and become more sustainable – without spending substantial capital. History has shown the way to address that financial paradox is with low cost, high value solutions that focus on softer technology and human behavior. Using this approach should lead you to a “data driven” portfolio where you get, analyze and act on previously untapped data through cloud-based building analytics.

Building data such as the thousands of “points” of information available in an HVAC, lighting and metering system can be analyzed to generate “faults” that tell us what to repair to gain energy and operational efficiency. This is previously untapped data that is like gold trapped in a vein until it’s unlocked. You can use this data to 1) eliminate energy draining faults 2) keep buildings tuned to lock in energy savings 3) make better decisions when deploying capital.

CITIES & COMMUNITIES

Fundamentally, smart communities are about establishing common goals, getting broad participation and having credible measurement. This requires diverse knowledge of buildings, people and technology. A community can be defined in a variety of ways including a city, a campus, an office park, an apartment complex or even an office portfolio throughout the country.

Intelligent Buildings has experience developing and leading such programs while aligning government, business, NGO, academia, and utilities. This approach can be fostered by a number of community leaders including city, county, utility, developers, economic development or institutions.

We have helped developed groundbreaking programs in Charlotte, Bellevue, San Francisco and San Jose.
