We are on our way back from what was a record crowd attending Realcomm | IBcon in Las Vegas. We launched our new service, The Comfort Test, and saw old friends and made new relationships. Here are some thoughts on the event from PointGuard's CEO Shannon Smith:
We care about comfort. It has been one of our key indicators of performance for years. As one of our key metrics in our Performance Analytics, the Comfort Score is a measure of accuracy of the desired temperature performance of the building mechanical systems.
At PointGuard, our company values are at the core of everything we do. We keep them every day - with our team, our families, our customers and ourselves. We keep it real and fun; keep on learning and giving; keep our promises and our mission; and of course, we play to win.
Capitol Towers I was a premier project. Ownership hired and deployed the best talent to design, build and operate this new class-A tower. But the property managers aimed to continue to improve upon their success and solve any potential issues during the warranty phase.
It is a wise warning that we often forget. Where do your building analytics come from…a trusted, independent source, or is the fox in the henhouse? Many building owners and facility teams may unwittingly be putting a fox in their building performance data as more equipment and service vendors offer analytics as a tacked on service. Before you accept their claims, here are a few questions to ask yourself.
Building data analytics can help building teams maximize ROI by lifting the fog off of information needed to get the most from mechanical and controls providers, warranties and service contracts. The direct impacts of this transparency for each building in a portfolio include improved comfort, extended asset life and reduced energy spend.
