Commercial Sector

Commercial buildings exist for staff and visitors to productively engage in business activities. Ensuring that all its occupants are warm, safe, comfortable and have the right levels of lighting can be challenging and costly.

We’ve worked in a whole host of different commercial environments and, in every case, enhanced the user’s experience of the building whilst massively reducing energy costs and making maintenance and cleaning far more efficient.

CILS have completed a vast portfolio of commercial projects, for Siemens, Keysight Technologies, Luton Borough Council, to name a few.

Smart CRE buildings

In addition to saving money on energy, IoT and smart sensors in buildings can access a multitude of other tools.

Imagine a building where not only the lights are turned off automatically when you leave a room, but the heating and cooling is also adjusted; and selected small power outlets can be turned off too.

The same system could also tell you where your key assets are, or choke points for staff movement, or how much use the fixed desks are getting, even the temperature in different parts of a room.

CILS’ FM experts can work with you on an ongoing basis, to lessen the load on your FM staff. With the ability to write custom software, there are a multitude of ways in which CILS can support the FM experience – all whilst saving energy.

Lower energy costs from lighting and small power

LED lighting greatly lowers costs and, if combined with IoT controls and smart sensors, light levels can adjust automatically to occupancy and/or daylight settings; plug-load controllers can even switch off non-essential outlets.

Save on heating and cooling

Realise more, significant savings, by using smart sensors to adapt to the heating or cooling requirements in unoccupied spaces.

Decarbonised heating

Integrate decarbonised heating systems, such as air source heat pumps, to reduce your CO2 emissions.

Reduce maintenance costs

No need to constantly change light bulbs, with the installation of smart controlled LED lighting. Using smart sensors, you can plan the cleaning schedules to match your room sizes and levels of occupancy.

Emergency lighting can also be integrated to enable smart, automated testing, reducing the need for manual inspections.

Increase staff productivity and comfort

Optimise light and temperature in offices and meeting rooms, to create comfortable, working environments – all year round.

Analyse space utilisation in real-time

Identify occupied and unoccupied areas for energy savings and safety; use data-driven information to determine the best use of space.

Solar PV

Generate onsite electricity, to lower energy costs and demonstrate your organisation’s commitment to net zero.

Access valuable data-driven insight
Smart sensors and IoT systems go way beyond reducing energy consumption. Actual energy use measurement, basic heat-mapping, real-time location services, asset tracking – all can improve commercial buildings’ security and provide valuable data for building management analysis.

This is a solid basis for data-driven decision-making, future upgrades and building optimisation.
