Everything Connected: BOSS CONTROLS speaks at the Sustainable Business Partnership CIC Network event

Vicky Vaughan

BOSS CONTROLS was recently invited to speak at the Sustainable Business Partnership CIC event. In short, our presentation explained why the Building Management Systems (BMS) market is rapidly growing and how the benefits of BMS increase when it is included on the boardroom agenda. Internet of Things (IoT) technology allows for real-time monitoring of how energy is being consumed in an organisation, therefore excessive energy use can be easily pinpointed and quickly acted upon, lowering costs and enhancing comfort.

What are Building Management Systems (BMS)?

BMS is the installation and engineering of control systems within a building to provide system automation.

Did you know hat 74% of building energy can be controlled by BMS? Whether it be Heating, Ventilation, Cooling, Lighting systems or more … (Source: Trend)

BOSS CONTROLS is aiming for our client’s HVAC machinery and electrical plant to be connected to an individual/series of BMS controllers, which we then programme with intelligent strategy to ensure it all operates as efficiently and smoothly as possible, with the minimum amount of human interference required.

Why is BMS Growing?

BMS has been around for decades, but is now growing faster than ever thanks to advances in technology which is making everything automated and more convenient. Combine this with the significant cost benefits of energy efficiency and prolonged lifespan of equipment makes the installation of BMS attractive. BMS also enables organisations to measure their energy usage which helps them achieve sustainability goals.

Why is BMS Changing?

IoT is changing the world of BMS and is providing sensor data from things which would never have been measured years ago; measuring human comfort levels unlike ever before, down to humidity, temperature, light and vibration levels of an individual desk. Making changes, monitoring faults, testing equipment, this can all be done centralised in one location.

Benefits of BMS Remote Connectivity

Remote capabilities provide us with the ability to react so much faster to critical site issues. It helps us to identify the particular element of mechanical or electrical plant that has failed enabling us to apply a more focused approach to the schedule, prioritising based on historical alarms generated from the BMS, or simply benefiting from the centralised connectivity to all the plant, which allows them to manipulate systems on their tablets or mobile devices through HTML graphics.

Our remote engineering team can create project streams for clients based on an energy survey directly related to the BMS operation. This will produce a report that grades the efficiency like that of an Energy Performance Certificate, however it also provides the level of control that need to be implemented to increase the efficiency rating.

After gauging the level of efficiency the building holds, we can then look to implement such concepts as Demand led operations, ensuring nothing is running until the designated space’s or sub systems are calling for the demand.

CO2 in Our Environment: Understanding Levels and Solutions

High CO2 levels in enclosed spaces like offices and schools can lead to a host of health issues, from headaches and fatigue to difficulty in concentration. The ASHRAE standard recommends maintaining CO2 levels below 1000 parts per million (ppm) in schools and 800 ppm in offices.

The LoCASE Grant and How We Used the Funding to Foster Green Innovation

Indoor air quality plays a vital role in maintaining a healthy and productive environment, particularly in offices and public spaces. Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are common indoor pollutants that can have adverse effects on human health. In this blog, we will explore the dangers posed by VOCs, where they are typically found, and how the integration of building management control systems (BMCS) and sensor technology can mitigate their presence and improve indoor air quality.

Why BOSS CONTROLS is a Great Place to Work: Interview with Gina, our Customer Service Administrator

I joined BOSS in November ’22 as an RSC Engineer with a previous background in the packaging industry. After hearing about the vacancy, initial conversations with Rob and Ben were enough to convince me that this would be a great chance to learn within a progressive industry. The current challenges within society around energy supply and consumption highlight the importance and potential that BMS holds in dictating buildings of the future.
