BuildingIQ: Building Energy and Operating Intelligence

The Silicon Review
December, 2019


BuildingIQ helps building owners and operators around the world lower energy use, increase building operations efficiency and tenant comfort. BuildingIQ builds services and solutions based on a core set of technologies incorporated into its platform and methodology —data analytics, modeling and optimization technologies, purpose-built applications, and human-powered, technology-enabled managed services. The company’s services deliver value to building owners and operators at any stage of a building’s lifecycle.

5i Intelligent Energy Platform

BuildingIQ's technology platform is built on the five pillars of data capture analysis, advanced modeling, measurement & verification, closed-loop predictive control, and expert human analysis. Services built on its platform deliver an optimized balance of energy savings, operational efficiency, and tenant comfort.

5i Optimized Energy Use

The BuildingIQ 5i Platform of technology-enabled services learns and evolves with the needs of your building or portfolio of buildings. Deployment occurs once, when you engage with BuildingIQ, giving you —building owners and operators— the ability to select the services that best solve today's problems, and then easily add new ones to tackle tomorrow's demands.

BuildingIQ’s services can be deployed selectively to meet the needs of any building across any size portfolio or geography. Services that power its solutions range from ticket management to retro-commissioning, to closed-loop control to tune your building to optimal performance 24/7.

Value to Customers in 3 Ways

  • Energy Savings

BuildingIQ delivers proven, sustainable energy savings that's a measurable outcome of the services we deploy. Yet it drives overall building operating efficiencies, tenant comfort and more.

  • Operational Efficiency

Collaboration between BuildingIQ's remote building experts begins with BuildingIQ, taking on the hard work of, analyzing and then diagnosing what's happening in your building. Their team augments your team with insights that identify costly anomalies while continually optimizing BMS processes.

  • Tenant Comfort

Energy efficiency and smooth operation without tenant comfort is nothing. Everything they do is tempered by the mandate of tenant comfort. Advanced predictive analytics and real-time control have resulted in lowering hot/cold calls by as much as 25% while achieving sustainable energy efficiency and operational savings.

Energy-based Insights and Services:

  • Reduce Energy Spend Without Sacrificing Comfort

In a wide range of installations, BuildingIQ has demonstrated it can reduce energy consumption and operational costs while maintaining occupant comfort levels —even in buildings rated as highly energy efficient by LEED, ENERGY STAR®, and NABERS.

  • Add Intelligence to Your Building

Traditional approaches to making buildings smarter focus on only two factors: cloud computing and sensing. BuildingIQ's services and the platform are comprised of five major components: data capture and analysis, modeling, measurement & verification, control, and human expertise. Incorporating these five components constitute a more comprehensive approach to the Buildings Internet of Things.

  • Technology With a Human Touch

BuildingIQ's 5i Platform has deep capabilities in data ingestion, aggregation, monitoring, trending, predictive analytics, visualization, automation and optimization of HVAC energy usage and consumption. Human expertise informs BuildingIQ's unique energy data analytics to provide the basis for identifying operational and equipment anomalies.

  • Proven Solutions

Parts of BuildingIQ's technology platform were originally developed by CSIRO, Australia's national lab and inventor of WiFi. Their customers include major property owners, real estate funds, corporations, and government organizations, which have deployed the system in a variety of buildings.

  • Products and Services to Meet Your Needs

Energy metering is the first step in understanding how you use energy. BuildingIQ provides cloud-based deep metering and works ticketing to enable energy management solutions.

  • Visualization

Efficiency and improved energy measures begin with understanding where your energy is used, or misused. Deep metering, DOE modeling, and analysis are a SaaS solution that quickly identifies outliers and help measure the impact of your work.

Big data, AI-driven re-commissioning and managed continuous commissioning help tune and operate buildings as only BuildingIQ's take on the BIoT can.

  • Predictive Control

What comes after understanding energy use, acting upon insights, and operating with zero drift? Predictive control. Their services take buildings to the next level with autonomous, continuous efficiency. It's AI that optimizes your energy efficiency and building operations, every day, 24/7, automatically.
