Challenges in School Building Management

A school’s facility manager has a responsibility to keep teachers, staff, and students safe. But ensuring a healthy and comfortable environment in addition to managing the building’s energy efficiency is challenging.

Ventilation is particularly crucial throughout a school to prevent the spread of disease. Also important, is maintaining the proper temperature, humidity, and lighting to keep students and teachers focused on learning.

Automation Solutions for School Buildings

Smart building management systems employ today’s technology to resolve the challenges of building management in K-12 schools.

  • Integrated displays with intuitive interfaces enable quick and easy adjustments.
  • Programmable settings maximize energy savings by automatically adjusting temperature and lighting when rooms are vacant.
  • Wireless controls allow staff to fine-tune system settings from wall-mounted or web-based interfaces.
  • Keyless entry-systems secure restricted areas, granting entry only to qualified personnel.

These advanced solutions simplify school building management, so students and teachers can concentrate on what’s important—creating a better education.
