Buildings need to evolve to ensure that they are not only comfortable, safe, and secure, but also efficient and resilient for a sustainable future. Every building starts at a different point on the sustainability journey – this creates unique sets of operation challenges and opportunities.
Challenges impacting building operation and maintenance

Many buildings also have aging equipment or assets, and differing systems across multiple facilities, further making maintenance inefficient.
