Benefits of a Holistic Facilities & Energy Management Strategy
Factors such as indoor air quality, safety, lighting, audio / visual technology, temperature control, and building automation are factors in creating ideal learning environments that help with student retention and recruitment. Campuses across the United States deal with outdated infrastructure and technology that have varying levels of operational efficiency. Subsequently, the administration faces the challenge of controlling tuition rates and balancing budgets and strategies that address power quality, energy efficiency, and rising operating and utility costs. In addition, this generation of young minds are more environmentally conscious, seeking campuses that incorporate green technology into their sustainability practices.
So how do higher education institutions overcome these challenges?
Data and building insights are key to boosting campus facility productivity by driving efficiencies in equipment assets and resource management. Accurate building data becomes a powerful tool because data helps all levels of administration and facilities personnel make informed decisions. Data can help justify maintenance costs, plan and budget for asset upgrades, renovations, and even significant capital investments like expanding and adding new buildings to support new curriculums and add innovation. Facilities managers can use data insights to prioritize work and, when maintenance needs arise, come armed to the site with the right tools, saving time and costs. In addition, data empowers managers to understand better strategies to improve operational processes.
Stark Tech helps universities achieve their goals and strategies by working directly with the stakeholders to deliver customized solutions that can incorporate multiple technologies and assets into a single pane of glass for 24/7 monitoring and support.
