Whole of Building Integrations the Bueno way

As sustainability demands on the built environment continue to rise and the cost of doing business soars, business owners and building managers are seeking innovative solutions to combat these growing demands. Integration technologies provide a smart solution to protect assets, streamline operations and meet sustainability targets. 

Whole of building integration refers to the consolidation of a building’s control systems into one cohesive platform. Whole of building integration goes beyond traditional Building Management Systems (BMS) and HVAC controls, extending to lighting, vertical transport (elevators), fire systems, security, IoT equipment, and more. Having a centralised network of all building systems is a crucial factor for smart buildings to reach sustainability goals as it helps maximise efficiency and reduce the carbon footprint. 

Bueno’s technology is leading the way in building analytics. Bueno’s platform and advanced integration protocols stand at the forefront of this holistic approach, allowing building owners and facility managers to seamlessly connect, monitor, and optimise multiple systems in one unified platform.

The Challenges of a Fragmented Approach to Building Management

Traditional systems struggle with cross-system communication, leading to missed opportunities for energy optimisation and operational efficiency. Usually, building systems are managed in silos, with separate controls for HVAC, lighting, fire safety, elevators, and security. This fragmented approach can lead to inefficiencies, increased energy consumption, and a higher carbon footprint. Facility managers are tasked with maintaining multiple systems that operate independently, complicating their efforts to achieve optimal building performance and meet sustainability targets. 

Whole of building integration addresses these challenges by unifying disparate systems, and providing a streamlined, comprehensive view of the building’s performance. However, achieving this level of integration requires advanced technology that is capable of handling diverse data sources and analytical needs.

Use Case: Optimising a Commercial Building with Bueno’s Whole of Building Integration

A large commercial building in a bustling urban area faces the challenge of optimising its energy usage while reducing its carbon footprint. The facility manager decides to implement Bueno’s whole of building Integration to achieve these goals.

Step 1: Comprehensive System Integration

Bueno’s platform is integrated with the building’s systems, including its HVAC system, lighting controls, elevators, fire systems and security systems. This integration provides a unified view of the building’s performance and allows the facility manager to monitor all critical systems from a single platform.

Step 2: Analysing Energy Consumption Patterns

Bueno’s platform continually analyses energy consumption across the integrated systems, identifying any inefficiencies and areas for improvement. The data reveals that the building’s lighting system operates at full capacity even during low-occupancy hours, leading to unnecessary energy wastage. 

Step 3: Implementing Optimisation Strategies

With Bueno’s insights, the facility manager implements targeted optimisation strategies. These strategies include adjusting lighting schedules and optimising HVAC settings based on occupancy patterns. 

Additionally, Bueno’s platform helps identify maintenance needs. This allows the facility manager to address potential issues before they escalate into costly repairs, and helps seamlessly coordinate with contractors. 

Step 4: Outcomes are monitored and reported via Bueno’s platform. Building managers, owners and contractors collaborate to ensure positive outcomes are maintained and any further tweaks can be made to further improve results.
