OUR SERVICES

We create value throughout the life cycle of the smart building processes from strategy and financial analysis, to system selection, implementation, scaling and overall program management. These services apply to your specific project solution.

Strategy & Roadmap

Sound strategy is the foundation of effective smart buildings and should be concise and clear with a business value proposition that has defined measurement and management criteria. Your strategy is accompanied by a technology roadmap that allows for existing budgets and natural business inertia to advance the strategy and as opposed to additional expenditures or budget money. 

For the roadmap to be realized it requires a gap analysis and project priority list. Intelligent Buildings has developed a proprietary gap analysis “Compass” tool to score your portfolio across 17 smart building execution elements and provided prioritized direction for your organization. The Compass tool has been leveraged to prioritize projects across millions of square feet of our customers’ portfolios.

  • Business Strategy & Smart Buildings Roadmap
  • Industry Research
  • Educational Workshops
  • Compass Gap Analysis & Project Priority
  • Financial & Risk Analysis

Use Case Development & Adoption

We have a library of applications and methodology to develop your, “real world” use cases for your needs - sparing you the confusing systems & features conversation that is prevalent in the smart building arena today. 

A smart system itself is useless without identified and planned use cases that are vetted for their relationship to the organization’s goals. 

The use cases can support financial efficiency, user experience, risk mitigation or any number of goals and measurements. The use cases come first and then drive system selection or utilization as opposed to the usual order of picking systems and then being forced to find ways to use them after the fact.

  • Business Value
  • Users & Beneficiaries
  • Barriers to Adoption
  • Risks
  • Measurement & Management

Organizational Readiness & Playbooks

Implementation of the strategy and the selected use cases must be accompanied by a resourcing, roles and responsibility matrix and underpinned by a solid workflow plan that we call playbooks. This will be the “how to” for the solutions, architecture, execution and management. 

Since the industry has generally had no best practices or guidelines on wide ranges of smart solutions, its incumbent on the building owner to create these guides that are for both employees and service companies. The playbooks are accompanied by training workshops that provide industry and technical information, case studies and customized material for the building and portfolio. We have developed playbooks for some of the largest real estate organizations in the world domestically and internationally as a means to activate the business value of systems and realize the use cases.

  • Role & Responsibilities
  • Organizational Policy
  • Vendor Policy
  • Workflow
  • Measurement

Construction Advisory & Management

Building control systems are all based in information technology (IT) architecture for operation, management and remote connectivity but are designed, configured, installed and managed by non-IT vendors such as architects, MEP engineers, facility and property managers. 

This fact combined with the opportunity for big data analytics, cloud, convergence and cybersecurity mean that there must be an overlay subject matter expert like Intelligent Buildings on your construction project, whether its ground up or renovation. We have developed a consistent and proven technology approach that respects the stakeholders and traditional process while not compromising on the realities of today’s building technology, the opportunities of the information age and the cybersecurity threats. With over consulting on over $2B in construction and development we can provide:

  • Design Assist
  • Construction, Submittal & As-Built Review
  • Construction Administration
  • Smart Building Commissioning
  • Building Cybersecurity Commissioning

Solution Identification & Implementation

With a sound strategy, roadmap and gap analysis, the next steps are solution identification and implementation. We have researched and scrutinized hundreds of systems and categories and will help you select, connect and implement the right systems in the right way. 

Consider us your Master Technology Integrator (MTI) which is a new type of service for a new type of facility technology environment that manages the risks of today's chaotic controls technologies while infusing the current IT trends of cloud, big data, and analytics. 

We are not resellers or distributors like the rest, but rather we sit on your side of the table and work to get the solutions installed and integrated in compliance with your strategy and business needs. We can address:

  • Controls Systems
  • Middleware & Interoperability
  • Big Data Analytics
  • Cloud / SaaS
  • Tagging & Taxonomy

Building Cybersecurity Assessment & Protection

For decades, well prior to the smart buildings movement, the manufacturers of control systems have been making their products dependent on local and wide-area networks and computers; yet those designing, specifying and managing the systems such as architects, engineers, facility and property managers do not have information technology (IT) skill sets much less cybersecurity experience. 

Additionally, enterprise IT departments are not versed in the operational technologies (OT) that are used by building controls systems nor the culture of the contractors and local managers. We developed the industry-first building cybersecurity evaluation tool (BCET) and effective solutions as seen on our cybersecurity solutions page. We are the only cybersecurity company that focusses solely on building controls cybersecurity and we do so in three phase areas:

  • Assess
     • Building System & Network Scans 
     • Building Site Inventory & Audit
     • Building Cyber Score & Action Plan
  • Organize
     • Enterprise Strategic Gap Analysis 
     • Enterprise Policy Development 
     • Enterprise Playbooks & Training
  • Protect
     • System & Network Monitoring
     • Social Engineering Testing & Training 
     • Building Cyber Score Updating
