Building Management Systems

Onsite maintenance and monitoring resources are often expensive and not effective.

As a result, BMS and electronic monitoring, alarming and reporting systems are in high demand. Their objective is to electronically monitor each sub-system of a complex and to relay local alarms and data to a central control room. These systems also allow for proactive maintenance as opposed to reactive maintenance that is more costly and causes downtime.

We have extensive experience in HVAC, generators, UPSs, Electrical networks, lifts, pumps, fire and security.

Electronic design projects managers
