REMOTE BENCHMARKING & BUILDING ANALYSIS

COLLABORATE WITH OFF-SITE AND
ON-SITE BUILDING STAFF EASILY

buildee’s platform enables your building personnel to conduct assessments in a traditional workflow, or virtually, from anywhere. Building staff can collect data on equipment and assets and upload photos and videos to buildee for review, analysis, and recommendation by off-site staff. buildee’s integrated peer-to-peer video can be used to collaboratively guide your building staff through the data collection process and address questions in real-time.

Additionally, utility data for benchmarking and preparation for future on-site visits can be uploaded to the buildee platform. buildee’s Energy Star Portfolio Manager integration enables data sharing, streamlines compliance reporting, and generates an Energy Star building efficiency score.

 



buildee is at the core of effective building energy management, from benchmarking and asset management to planning and measurement & verification of our energy efficiency projects.

BUILDEE CASE STUDY

VIRTUAL ANALYSIS PROVIDES ENERGY & COST SAVINGS WITH LIMITED BUILDING ACCESS

Challenge

With access to buildings limited, it has been challenging to perform on-site energy audits for a major U.S. banking institution. It has constrained the energy savings guidance that historically was provided to building owners and resulted in lower bills and GHG emissions. This shift in building accessibility has raised the need for new virtual solutions that can offer virtual and remote tools to building owners and their stakeholders.

Solution

The CRE management firm operating and maintaining this company’s banks implemented buildee to virtually segment and prioritize energy-saving opportunities for its 3,000 building portfolio. buildee standardized the data collection process and provided advanced benchmarking and trending tools. This activity ranked the top 15 priority sites in the portfolio to virtually assess, based on building size and EUI. The buildee platform also provided industry-standard measure calculations and expected returns for projects such as control optimization and lighting retrofits.

Results

The buildee platform and its remote workflow identified $77,000 per year in energy cost savings across 15 building sites. buildee also provided time savings of up to 90% per building assessed.
