Green Building Automation: Intelligent Buildings with Automation at the Core

Scott Kaplan, President, Green Building AutomationScott Kaplan, President
According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, energy consumption is slated to rise by 50 percent between 2018-2050. This is in large part due to the inefficiencies and the energy use and environmental impact of commercial buildings—the offices we work in, the stores we frequent, the restaurants we patronize, and so on. A building’s infrastructure is home to a broad array of equipment and systems, from aging elevators to modern lighting controls, electrical and water utilities. With the growing urgency to reduce the carbon footprint, it is safe to say that the future belongs to structures with sensor networks that can monitor electricity and water usage in real-time, track sustainability performance, and interact with other systems efficiently. Enter building automation systems. By enabling interoperability between different building installations, such as heating, ventilation, cooling, security systems, and more, building automation systems are capable of driving efficiency in energy consumption and cost savings. Aligning itself with the growing needs of sustainability and energy efficiency, Green Building Automation is simplifying building operations through building automation to provide better environments for employees, tenants, and customers.

The company works with a large client base that ranges across various industry verticals, such as automotive, finance, government, aerospace, commercial real estate, industrial manufacturing, casinos, education, healthcare, professional sports arenas, and restaurants.
Catering to the commercial and industrial markets with its turnkey building automation system solutions, the company integrates building systems through automatic centralized control, encompassing everything from HVAC, lighting, metering, fire alarms to security systems. "Our goal is to integrate all building systems so that they communicate with each other to create smarter buildings that can make decisions based on energy usage and comfort," explains Scott Kaplan, President of Green Building Automation.

Green Building Automation utilizes data analytics systems that analyze the energy usage and comfort levels based on the data collected from electricity, gas, water, British Thermal Unit (BTU), and airflow meters. "We bolster the purpose of building automation systems by collecting all the information in one system and offer data analytics, which is a rapidly growing trend in the intelligent building space,” adds Kaplan.

Once the accurate data is aggregated from the system, Green Building Automation presents it to the client, which can be leveraged to make informed decisions and achieve efficiency in cost and power consumption. In addition, Green Building Automation also leverages third-party services to analyze the data collected in instances where the client requires granular details on their data. While working with a professional sports team, the company helped the client meet their two-fold goal of reducing energy usage and energy costs. “Energy usage and energy costs go hand in hand, and there is a fine balance between the two. If the scales are tipped to one side, you may end up reducing energy consumption but the comfort levels will be impacted. We were able to work with the client and help them achieve their goal without impacting the comfort levels,” notes Kaplan.

With office locations in Southeastern and West Michigan, Green Building Automation has participated in multiple projects all across the U.S. At the core of Green Building Automation's success lies its highly experienced team of project managers, engineers, programmers, and more. Focused on making building systems work together in a much more cohesive manner, Green Building Automation is keen on utilizing the latest technologies on the market to analyze buildings more effectively. “It is safe to say that data analytics is and will be instrumental in paving the path for smarter buildings. We are perfectly poised to leverage efficient control systems to analyze not just buildings as a whole, but dive deeper and break down the data based on different sections or zones within a building,” remarks Kaplan.
