In May 2012, the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) awarded a contract to IBM, SkyFoundry, ESI, Tridium and several other firms to develop and install advanced smart building technology in 55 of the Federal government’s highest energy-consuming buildings. The “GSALink” Smart Building program went live in June, 2013, and is now monitoring and identifying faults with building systems that support more than 31 million square feet of Federal office space across the nation. In November, 2013, Government IT media group FedScoop named “GSALink” as their “Innovation of the Year.” GSA recently added an additional 26 buildings, totaling more than 12 million square feet, to the program. Meanwhile, the Navy’s Naval District Washington (NDW) is using similar analytic-driven technology to enhance management of more than 1 million square feet of space in the National Capitol area.
Please join us on March 13 from 8:30 am to noon at the IBM Analytics Solution Center in Washington, D.C. to hear more about these exciting projects and learn how smarter buildings technology can benefit you.
Both the GSA and NDW Teams are deploying systems to monitor building performance and stream data to a central facility, allowing faster analysis and more informed decision-making about building operation and maintenance activities. These solutions use innovative building management technology, linking major building controls, to make Federal buildings more energy efficient. Using these systems, occupants and building management professionals are able to view building performance data on dashboards that provide metrics on energy savings, daily prioritized fault lists and recommendations on how to further increase operating efficiencies. The new technology gives government property managers information and diagnostic tools to keep facilities performing at peak efficiency, driving cost savings across the Federal building portfolio.
At this event, you’ll hear from government and industry speakers about how you can apply a similar approach to your facilities profile. A panel of leading buildings management experts will discuss the challenges GSA and NDW faced and lessons they learned in using data and analytics to more effectively manage their facility operations. We encourage facilities management professionals and their supporting information technology teams to attend this stimulating session.
