Read the General Services Administration announcement Cimetrics Inc. and JDL Business Services announced today that the General Services Administration (GSA) has signed a contract for energy-saving Infometrics remote ongoing commissioning service at the Wiley Federal Building in College Park, MD.
Infometrics helps the GSA comply with their mandate of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 35% by 2010.
Infometrics (now Analytika) promises to identify opportunities for reductions in energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions in the Wiley Federal Building in College Park, Maryland. Infometrics reports will quantify Carbon Dioxide emissions reductions, enabling the GSA to comply with a federally mandated 30% drop in emissions of the greenhouse gas at federal agencies by 2015.
James Watson, Jr., Program Analyst at the GSA Metropolitan Services Center (WPD) calls the proposal "an innovative approach to both energy use conservation and maintenance of building systems." He anticipates that the program "will yield significant energy and operational savings."
The Wiley Federal Building in College Park, Maryland was constructed in 2001 and houses the Food and Drug Administration Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition. It is a 380,000 SF facility consisting of 30% laboratory space and 70% office space and requires 100% outside air to maintain air quality for sensitive laboratory experiments related to the safety of our nation's food supply.
Infometrics (now Analytika) is the leading service for remote monitoring and ongoing commissioning of building systems. An Infometrics program provides powerful algorithm-based analysis of continuously collected building automation data. Valuable unbiased periodic reports enable owners to optimize efficiency and comfort, lower maintenance costs, and effectively manage facility staff and contractors while reducing energy consumption.
Using secure Internet transmission, Infometrics (now Analytika) can upload and analyze the performance of multiple vendors’ equipment, anywhere in the world. A combined 100+ years of expertise in controls engineering, communications and building analysis enables customized solutions for each facility. Infometrics recommendations optimize mechanical and operational efficiency, catching potential problems before they become noticeable and keeping systems running smoothly and efficiently. The information provided enables proactive rather than reactive system maintenance, minimizing costly downtime and extending equipment life. Connected buildings also allow owners to aggregate energy buying, analyzing need and negotiating costs based on enterprise-wide usage patterns.
