Higher Education

Universities leading global sustainability efforts.

What are your campus sustainability challenges?

As a leading educational institution that plays an integral role in shaping the future, all eyes are on you to set course to a more sustainable future. The complexities and contradictions of an extensive built environment are on full display throughout your campus. With a deep understanding of the challenges between you and success, you can design a strategy that empowers built environment stakeholders to champion your sustainability program.

The most common campus sustainability challenges? Data integration across varying building systems and technology, data governance and quality, data accessibility and useability for various stakeholders, and change management strategy. Learn more about each and how a modern solution—like that from Buildings IOT—can help shape a data-driven campus sustainability program.

How can a phased approach help?

Because there is always a change management component to any new process or system, a phased approach to building system data integration will allow you to bring your interdepartmental colleagues along incrementally while achieving small wins in the process.

Some phasing strategies could include: an initial focus on meter data to solve specific problems of data quality and tenant billing, then using that meter data to benchmark buildings by consumption. That consumption analysis could then inform site selection for more detailed integration to HVAC system data and in turn support capital funding requests for more involved retrofit projects.
