Building Automation Services - Controls Contractor

As part of our commercial electrical services in Edmonton, BLDG Electric installs, customizes and modernizes  Building Automation Systems or Building Management Systems (BAS or BMS). Based on our customer’s needs, we program a system that’s easy to use and is setup to ensure that critical building equipment operates efficiently.  BAS systems can look and function like a simple thermostat and control rooftop units. Alternatively, we can deliver a completely integrated system that includes HVAC, power, lighting, solar PV, access controls, and security systems or any variation in between.  

Old building with no tech? Newer building with aging tech?  No problem! Our BAS installations are performed with an open programming language. The open programming language enables communication between legacy and newer systems, and enables future compatibility with new technologies or different equipment brands when you are ready to upgrade.  Furthermore, our BAS provides quick and clear reporting (email alerts or system alerts) so that building operators can repair equipment before the tenants are even aware HVAC equipment has malfunctioned.

Modern Building Automation Services with Distech Controls

To keep everything easy to use, we create a graphical user interface (GUI) to allow the building managers, owners, and even tenants to navigate between systems and subsystems to evaluate performance.  GUIs are also programmed for scheduling, historical trends, and alarms. GUIs can be accessed on the terminal in the building maintenance office, or through any internet-connected device.
