There is increasing emphasis on sharing system data to consolidate information for the user, providing more efficient and productive facility systems, and adding value to the facility organization. Increasing integration leads to more complete information to drive productive energy efficiency and occupant comfort decisions. To assure success, assess short term and long term facility needs and goals. Be sure the project plans and specifications in place are in keeping with the facility’s goals and priorities and in accordance with the system support structure available after installation. With more integration, careful planning is required to ensure vendors are delivering the products and configurations requested. Communication and detailed planning becomes all the more vital.
