Through an overall Energy Management System (EMS), individual buildings have electronic controls linked to the campus network to optimize the performance of installed HVAC Systems. These buildings are remotely monitored to ensure cost-efficient performance. Building HVAC systems are scheduled through the EMS. Building Automation Services works with the HVAC technicians in the field to analyze and fix related problems.
Building Automation Systems also assists the Office of Facility Development with interfacing new building control systems into the campus Energy Management System and is also a participant in commissioning processes.
