Smart Building Systems

The Intelligence Behind Ease, Comfort And Savings

McKinstry’s Smart Building Systems take advantage of intelligent automation, modern communications, and other technology solutions to operate, monitor, and maintain a building in the most efficient and cost-effective manner. A smart building will incorporate a range of technology services to greatly reduce energy consumption and maintenance costs while improving comfort levels and automating many of the tasks normally performed by people.

McKinstry’s Smart Building Systems service offers a whole new approach to selecting and implementing technical systems in your facility. Our design team will serve as your product-neutral consultant to objectively ascertain the level of sophistication and integration your systems need, and to make recommendations for which systems best suit your business – resulting in a high performance building that achieves the long-term goals of your organization.
