Building Energy Maintenance and Safety

Our Building Energy-Maintenance and Safety (BEMS) Engineers provide the internal environmental conditions that enable business processes, all along the building life cycle, to function at an optimum level while providing comfort, health, welfare and safety conditions for occupants. They understand how the engineering, operating and maintaining services influence the performances of buildings, such as energy efficiency.

The BEMS designers key objective is the trouble-free use of the engineering services of any property operatorboth in terms of economic, reliable performance and ensuring that legislation is complied with. They use risk assessment methods allowing to anticipate and mitigate the impact of business, design, operation and disposal risks.

The BEMS engineers have the ability to produce a maintenance contract. They carry out commissioning and testing to ensure that the design intent is achieved in practice. They also determine how to control the building services, the performance of any engineering installation. They are able to implement the maintenance strategy. They have the ability to perform condition surveys and maintenance audits activities.
