The education sector presents a common set of challenges for the management of building, fire and security operations. Cortech Developments has previously provided expert integrations for institutions within all aspects of the education sector, from schools to colleges and universities. This experience makes us the perfect choice for helping to streamline your building management system operations.
Educational institutions occupy areas of considerable size, with many being comprised of different facilities including classrooms, lecture halls, research labs, dormitories, libraries, sports complexes and car parks. Complex institutions such as these often see sporadic investment in operational systems, resulting in disparate networks of software and hardware installed by different manufacturers and suppliers over an extended time period.
Cortech’s experts can work intimately with these systems, consolidating them seamlessly into a common-use interface that is easy to understand and interact with. From security and fire safety to building management systems including climate control, amalgamating isolated systems into one dataflow helps to save both time and money.
Integrating building, fire safety and security systems renders them interoperable (capable of exchanging operational data). This assists the end user by providing information from otherwise isolated systems in one or more centralised locations. With Cortech’s integration services, distance between buildings and campuses is no longer a barrier to safe and efficient operation.
Through utilising Cortech’s innovative Datalog 5 product, operators can even help to make institutions eco-friendly, achieving a reduction in carbon emissions. For example this can be achieved through an automatic lighting setup and the application of alerts when internal temperature limits are exceeded.
