A well-built or renovated building is engineered with the right solutions for thermal comfort, air quality, lighting, water, gases, and other environmental essentials that are delivered where and when needed and responsibly minimize emissions. The MEP consultants and engineers at K2D not only have an enormous impact on the overall performance of your property, but also a long-lasting impact on office, manufacturing, sales, and service productivity.
Engineering Systems Work Together
Building system engineering is the science and discipline of designing the ventilation, electrical, plumbing, and data systems for buildings. Connected devices, such as lighting, security systems, and HVAC, provide data that can be captured and applied to significantly increase energy savings and operational efficiencies. Technology advances feature the ability to turn building system data into usable information and also enable a more sophisticated approach to service and maintenance. Because data can be gathered from one piece of equipment or from dozens, it’s possible to start small and grow big.
K2D will help you fully understand building performance. We are always on top of utility trends and efficiency requirements. Building owners and managers need the easiest ways to control building set points remotely to improve occupant comfort and efficiency. A properly connected building provides answers to questions about comfort and efficiency in real-time. Remote access delivers a detailed view of real-time performance and more advanced options for analytics.
Today’s technology advancements are driving the expectations of building owners and occupants. MEP consultants create tools that make it easier than ever to access your building data. With greater capabilities to control buildings comes greater possibilities for energy savings and comfort. Providing the right solution that takes advantage of the building data at your fingertips starts with understanding what clients want and need. And offering solutions you might not have considered yet.
You want to make decisions based on data and experience. Connected buildings have a building automation system. The aggregate data can be connected to the cloud or the internet. When more connected devices are integrated into networks, more value can be delivered. Data that tells you how systems are operating and performing. These systems also collect trends about average setpoints over a certain period, how often equipment is running, and hours of building usage. For end users, this information can be delivered via easy-to-read dashboards.
Equipment metering can also be integrated to provide detailed utility data, such as average kilowatt-hour usage for specific pieces of HVAC equipment. Information gives you the power to make informed decisions about how to operate the equipment to achieve better energy efficiency, track performance and maintenance requirements, as well as dispatch service personnel automatically.
