No matter how well designed your building’s heating, ventilation or air conditioning systems are, you need to know how to get the most from them. A building management system, or BMS, can help you maintain the ideal conditions for success, as well as saving you money by ensuring energy is only used when it is needed.
Our commercial energy management experts use the latest technology to design and install controls specifically for your environment. Whether these are included as part of a 361 Degrees installation project, or retrofitted to an existing system, the result can be significant savings over the life of your building.
Every business is looking for ways to cut costs while providing the right conditions for staff, but many overlook the value of taking control of their mechanical services. Heating, ventilation, air conditioning and lighting can represent up to 60% of the energy consumption of a building, so keeping your systems maintained and working efficiently can be an excellent way to save money.
HVAC energy management helps reduce consumption, which in turn means lower bills. It also helps prolong the life of your equipment and can improve satisfaction in the working environment.

Why should you work with us?
Every building is different, which means every building control system must be carefully tailored to its environment. We’ll work with you to create a commercial energy management system that suits your needs at the fairest price. Moreover, we look at the lifetime costs of your system as well as the initial costs to ensure your system makes the most sense long-term as well.
The best building control systems are designed to complement HVAC installation projects, but our team can also advise on retrofitting controls to an existing system to help you get the most from it.
Optimising building management controls can reduce energy usage by as much as 30%. Our engineers have a reputation for quality and efficiency and will leave you with a customised, easy-to-use system that contributes to the ideal working environment.
We have worked with interior fit-out contractors, in the public sector, and with a wide range of commercial organisations, so you can be confident we’ll find a solution that works for you. Contact us for more information or to arrange a free consultation with one of our experts.
Regular servicing is just as important to your energy control units as it is to your boiler or air conditioning equipment. Maintenance visits help prevent breakdowns and keep commercial energy management systems running efficiently.
A contract with our sister company 361 Servicing provides complete peace of mind. Their trained engineers carry out regular maintenance and they’re ready to deal with emergencies, diagnosing and repairing all faults.
How much could commercial energy management save you?
The effectiveness of energy controls varies by building, but research by the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory found simple changes could cut usage by an average of nearly 30%.
A total of 34 measures were compared in the study and those with the greatest potential included:
- Better management of temperature settings for both heating and cooling, and lowering overnight heating temperatures (8% saving);
- Reducing the minimum rate for air to flow through variable air volume systems (7% saving);
- Limiting heating and cooling to when a building is most likely to be occupied (6% saving).
