There are endless benefits of having a Building Management System installed in your building. The need for a BMS is on the rise across the UK and globally, as it provides many benefits for everyone involved. The global BMS market could reach $5.15 billion by 2026 according to a report by Frost & Sullivan.
What is a Building Management System?
Building Management System or BMS is a computer-based system that is installed in buildings to monitor and control the mechanical and electrical system of the building. The building management system can control the power system, heating, ventilation & air conditioning systems (HVAC) and integrate with the security system and fire system in the building.
5 key benefits of a Building Management System
- Improved energy efficiency: A BMS can help optimise the operation of a building’s heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system, lighting, and other electrical systems, leading to reduced energy consumption and cost savings.
- Enhanced comfort: A BMS can help ensure that the temperature, humidity, and other environmental conditions in a building are maintained at optimal levels for the comfort of occupants.
- Greater safety: A BMS can monitor the operation of various systems in a building and alert maintenance staff to potential issues before they become problems. This can help prevent accidents and improve the overall safety of the building.
- Increased reliability: By automating the monitoring and control of a building’s systems, a BMS can help reduce the need for manual intervention and improve the reliability of those systems.
- Enhanced maintenance: A BMS can provide real-time data on the performance of a building’s systems, which can help maintenance staff identify and address potential issues before they become major problems. This can help extend the lifespan of the systems and reduce maintenance costs.
Why does my building need a BMS System?
A BMS works behind the scenes to ensure that a buildings environment is automatically controlled to provide the required level of performance at different times of the day as required. It’s also a system increasingly used to manage energy usage, driving cost savings and improved performance.
