CAFM & Asset Management
Computer-Aided Facilities Management (CAFM) plays a crucial role in building energy efficiency by providing tools and technologies to optimise the management and operation of facilities. CAFM systems integrate various aspects of facility management, such as space planning, maintenance management, asset tracking, and energy monitoring, into a single platform. The system can collect and analyse data from various sensors and meters installed in buildings to monitor energy consumption in real-time. This data can be used to identify energy-intensive areas, track energy usage patterns, and identify opportunities for improvement.
CAFM systems can compare a building's energy performance against industry standards or similar buildings to identify areas for improvement. Benchmarking provides insights into the building's energy efficiency and helps set energy reduction targets. The systems provide tools for efficient space utilisation and asset management. By analysing space occupancy and utilisation data, facility managers can identify underutilised areas and optimise HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) systems accordingly. This helps in reducing energy waste and optimising comfort levels. Maintenance and Preventive Planning: CAFM systems enable effective maintenance planning by tracking equipment performance, maintenance history, and service schedules. Proactive maintenance and preventive planning help ensure that building systems operate optimally, reducing energy waste caused by faulty or inefficient equipment.
