BEMS – saving you money and making your building greener

Building Energy Management Systems (BEMS) is a computerised and sophisticated way to manage buildings intelligently and efficiently. Information is collected, tracked, monitored and used to control equipment for energy consumption.

This technology can be used in both residential and commercial buildings to control and monitor a wide range of functions including; heating, air-conditioning, lighting and ventilation. Depending on the size of the premises, building type and use and budget – the system can be wired or wireless with both software and hardware integrated to the equipment, devices and appliances. Once installed, systems need to be maintained or can be upgraded to maximise results. 

The Richard Irvin FM advantage:

  • Plan – our engineers and specialists have industry-leading experience to help you get the best possible results from your existing BEMS / plant systems; from survey for new installation to re-commissioning and upgrades.
  • Protect – building users and residents benefit from clean air, set at the right temperature to create a healthy environment. Conserving energy reduces running costs and pollution.  
  • Control – monitor and manage consumption based on data, make informed decisions to reduce running costs, act on energy consumption and minimise repairs. Do this via our online portal to give you complete control and real-time visibility.
  • Improve – we have the skill to assess, advice, supply and install renewable options such as ground source heat pumps and solar photovoltaic systems to improve both carbon footprint and energy consumption. We can also review utility suppliers and if required, can procure better rates.

In recent weeks, the Government has outlined risk assessments and measures to ensure that workplaces are ‘Covid-secure’. Employers, in some regions, now have greater discretion on when and whether staff should return to their place of work.

This review period is the ideal opportunity to assess your office heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system. Well-managed air quality, humidity and temperature control will help protect your building, improve productivity and safeguard your employees and visitors.

Our team of specialists will review and recommend the best solution to achieve your goals. From recommissioning to upgrades or building new BEMS / HVAC systems – we will ensure the best possible outcome to prioritise safety in light of this new normal.
