As the pandemic continues to wreak devastation, companies are searching for ways to ensure workers’ safety on the job. EES’ up-to-date expertise with building management systems has been put to good use in creating safer indoor working environments.
PROCOS™ is a proprietary design methodology developed by EES to create and implement a best-fit control solution for clients’ building management systems (BMS). Developed and tested over decades in a wide variety of industries, this process has been applied to dozens of large-scale projects, including Dubai Healthcare City’s District Cooling Plant Automation, a Building Management System for a New York City insurance company headquarters, and a Pharmaceutical HVAC BMS for an R&D laboratory facility.

I guess the old saying “what goes around, comes around” if you wait long enough, is true in the controls industry as well. We had for many years, a large telecommunications client for whom we had installed PLC-based building controls in the late eighties. The client was forward thinking in regards to the energy consumed by their 2.2 million square-foot R&D facility. Having the innovative corporate culture that fueled hundreds of patents per year, they recognized the rewards we were offering with our new (at the time) PLC-based energy control system. Back in the day, no one was applying PLCs to central utility plants and major air handling systems like we were and after a review of the numbers, they took a chance. After completing the installation, we saved them $500,000 per year with a return on investment in under two years. When the project ultimately lead to the client winning an award from the State of New Jersey for energy management, we had a client for life.
