A well-planned control system offers improved management of building ervices and can form the core of an integrated facilities management other building-related services such as access control, system, covering security,
energy monitoring and targeting, information technology and maintenance.
The amount of direct involvement by staff in the day-to-day running of an HVAC system has steadily reduced over recent years. However, it would be a mistake to assume that the control system can be left to take care of itself from the moment of handover.
The client must choose from a range of options, from running the building services in-house with the client organisation’s own staff, to outsourcing to a service bureau who may supervise efficient operation, deal with occupant requests and organise maintenance, all from a remote supervisor.
Whichever form of organisation is chosen, there should be clear ownership of the control system with unambiguous responsibility for its successful operation.
