Smart Buildings

The importance of commercial building data network infrastructure has continued to increase as new IP controlled devices have opened up building services where they previously existed in Silo’s, distinctly separate from each other. This restricted the ‘intelligence’ of the building and Facilities Management were unable to optimise the use of control strategies to minimize energy usage.

This has all changed as the price point for IP controlled low energy devices such as lighting, HVAC, Signage, Security and Life Safety has decreased to make the case for a smart building strategy more compelling. As a leading Network Infrastructure supplier, we have embraced new ‘Digital Ceiling’ topologies and worked with manufacturers to ensure that we offer solutions such as PoE, Wireless and Fibre to the zone. We have the expertise to provide advice on the design and implementation of the building network that will support the Digital Ceiling. This includes Zone architecture to facilitate adaptations of the network, enabling new devices to be connected into an existing network with less business disruption.

Networks Centre have recognised that it is no longer sufficient to be good at logistics and inventory management but have also invested in a dedicated training facility that offers courses such as network design through BICSI, City & Guilds and manufacturer product specific courses. By training our partners, we equip them to help building owners and construction companies implement smart building designs that can contribute towards LEED or BREEAM certification and subsequent energy savings.
