Remote Command Center (RCC)

The RCC keeps your essential spaces up and running by providing 24/7 remote monitoring and building automation systems support using technology operated by experienced building engineers. Technology-enabled management through measurement, analysis and diagnostics enhances your asset performance. The RCC also monitors energy usage at the asset level, which can be analyzed, compared to industry benchmarks and used to develop recommendations to reduce energy consumption and costs.


Utility Management

BGIS’s advanced analytics provide insight into your building and portfolio energy and utility consumption. Data is analyzed by our Utility and energy experts and our Remote Command Center monitoring team to help us detect anomalies in utility usage that may indicate an issue in a facility, such as water leakage, malfunctioning equipment, overbilling, etc.

We also deliver voluntary programs, such as EPA Energy Star building energy reporting.
