Construction Administration & Commissioning
Working with MEP firms, IB acts as an owner’s agent for project alignment to their Smart Building strategy, including coordination between contractors and integrators. IB also works in parallel with the Commissioning Agent to ensure that all integrated sequences, data structure, and integration methods satisfy the selected use cases and accomplish the goals defined in the strategy.

Manifests the strategy, business objectives, and Use Cases into the required technology design attributes. The Intelligent Buildings consultants and engineers work closely and cooperatively with your team, including architects, MEP engineers, IT and AV staff, and contractors to fit seamlessly into the traditional design, development, and management environment. Design Assist provides further technical details for insertion into the final plans.
Building Systems Cybersecurity Consulting
We can create thorough cybersecurity, remote access, backup, and system configuration policy for all your building systems contractors that can later be audited and managed as a standard across your portfolio.
Our assessment practice identifies building systems and capabilities, connectivity and remote access methods, and contractor cybersecurity practices. The outcome is actionable remediations for each system, site, and portfolio based on deficiencies discovered while executing the IB process. Our remotely-executed assessments are completed rapidly, thoroughly, and safely to provide you with an accurate analysis to make informed decisions at the speed of your business.
Building System Cybersecurity & Contractor Risk Assessment
Provides analysis and reporting of building systems cybersecurity risk, with an in-depth look at system and network configuration, remote access, user behavior, and contractor policy compliance.
Building System Discovery & Capabilities Assessment
Provides discovery, analysis, and reporting of building system capabilities for networking, system and data integration, system capabilities, and gaps. The outcome is actionable breakdown for each system, site, and portfolio based on the capabilities and deficiencies discovered, including, if requested, the potential for analytics, operational dashboards, and digital twin.
Our managed services fill gaps created by the industry and contractors that can cause operational risks, liability, and inefficiencies. IB’s managed services focus on securing your systems and managing your contractors’ compliance in several key areas:
Remote Access Management
End-to-end Managed Service, with secure remote access to building system networks for contractors and other off-site personnel.
Contractor Health Risk Screen
A remotely delivered, app-enabled service that allows the solution to span across multiple buildings to provided controlled site access by contractors based on their responses to a standardized health risk screen. This allows both CDC and customer policy to be communicated, screened, and reported.
Contractor Policy Compliance
Ongoing control and monitoring of contractor compliance with your cybersecurity policies through automated audit and reporting.
Contractor Phishing & Selective Hunting
A multi-campaign, building system-focused, anti-phishing service to measure and train your operations team and contractors on techniques to identify and avoid phishing emails.
