Retrofits and Integrations
In many ways, retrofits and integrations are the most rewarding work we can do for you.
In many ways, retrofits and integrations are the most rewarding work we can do for you. Often times, the payback is the fastest and the optimization opportunities are the highest in buildings that have 20, 10 or even 5 year old automation systems. Smart building technologies begin to degrade almost immediately, so regular preventive maintenance is essential to maintaining the highest level of performance and value. When you ask Conexus to solve your problem, we first assess the situation:
- EnergyStar study to determine payback scenarios based on energy efficiency
- Audit of overall maintenance costs
- Absenteeism, production and performance issues based on indoor air quality and comfort
After establishing a baseline, we evaluate your existing technologies to provide the best solution scenarios with the fastest payback. Our extensive experience and expertise in integrating legacy systems (such as integrating Johnson Controls and Siemens) with modern, open and non-proprietary technologies allows us to salvage many systems that others may offer to replace at significantly more expense. If we cannot demonstrate a reasonable return on your investment, we will not do the work.
Conexus can offer the most value to you when we get involved early in your new construction or renovation project
Conexus can offer the most value to you when we get involved early in your new construction or renovation project. Smart building technologies can cost as little as $2 per square foot, but the day to day systems that they manage consume up to 70% of your total energy spend – add the efficiency of your talent to the mix – and the impact on your life-cycle costs are substantial. Time spent early in the design process picking your smart building technology integrator will pay significant dividends over the life of your facility.
Master System Integration
High performing buildings are complex, and expertise is required to integrate all the disparate building systems into a single
High performing buildings are complex, and expertise is required to integrate all the disparate building systems into a single, cohesive and effective solution that provides you with the essential information you need to make effective decisions. Open, scalable and flexible plans are critical to ensuring the long-term success of your systems. Conexus can work with you to implement best practices and to develop a system master plan:
- Standards for graphics and databases (alarming, trending, scheduling, etc.)
- Specifications that enable integration of disparate building systems through coordinated communication protocols
- A platform that can easily integrate to “internet of things” platforms, whether cloud-based or at the edge
- Project administration
- System commissioning
- System security
We collaborate directly with facilities and IT teams as well as contractors and architects to develop a custom master plan with standards that ensure all future work, renovations, new construction and maintenance support your management and efficiency goals.
