When you think of improving space utilization at your corporate office facility, you are more likely to think about creative uses of space, the latest trends in interiors, even current metrics like space density, but certainly not about scientific data concerning the movement of people within the facility.Read More
We live in an era of “going green” and reducing our energy footprint. From hybrid cars, to eliminating presevatives and everything in between, being conscious of consumption is prevalent. Yet, according to the U.S. Department of Energy, the United States wastes 30 percent of our overall energy – not so “green” or economical.Read More

Britain’s largest train stations are increasingly popular destinations for retail, food and drink – in addition to those traveling by rail. That’s what the data from more than 1,700 discreet infrared sensors deployed throughout Network Rail’s largest train stations uncovered in its effort to discover not just how many people use its stations – but actually how they use them as part of its goal to improve passenger perception.

The Great Recession may finally be loosening its grasp on the U.S. commercial-building sector, which is enjoying increases across a number of indicators that signal a rise in growth.
A virtual energy audit measures how buildings utilize energy, helping building owners to identify energy waste, adjust automated systems, and ultimately save money by reducing excess expenditures. These audits measure energy consumption using metrics such as energy bills, HVAC schedules, local weather information, and energy interval data to create an overview energy model. Unlike a manual assessment, virtual assessments can take place remotely – making them ideal for consistent monitoring of energy usage.
