Best Practices to Reduce Costs and Increase Efficiency with Data-Driven Building Services

Data-driven powered building maintenance programs are bringing new value to building services by driving proven outcomes.

These building services 1) reduce costs, 2) help facilities to meet safety and regulatory requirements, 3) optimize equipment performance and the productivity of FM staffs, 4) drive revenue and business growth and 5) maximize the safety, comfort and productivity of occupants.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the differences between traditional maintenance programs and data-powered programs.
  • Recognize how building owners can develop specific business outcomes for their maintenance programs and establish key performance indicators (KPIs) that confirm the desired outcomes.
  • Understand how to establish a cost-effective mix of maintenance services (reactive, preventive, and predictive) for the building equipment in each unique facility.
  • Learn how data analytics and continuous monitoring uncover costly inefficiencies in facility operations and maintenance.
