Energy and Building Management Solution by AT&T

To reduce energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions (GHG), AT&T has incorporated Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity with legacy building information to identify when facility equipment is operating inefficiently. The AT&T IoT Professional Services group, experts in the design, testing, and implementation of IoT projects, has worked with the AT&T Energy team to use IoT sensors to gather data on previously unmonitored equipment and merge it with data from existing building management systems (BMS). Bringing equipment performance information together has led AT&T to optimize maintenance and address problems in a timely manner via dashboards, reports and alerts. This has reduced electricity use and the associated emissions.

Multi-Ply Roofing: REDUNDANCY AND VALUE

In engineering, redundancy is the principle of duplicating critical components to increase system reliability. In roofing, multi-ply systems of modified bitumen provide a similar duplication of critical components, resulting in longer service life and return on investment (ROI) for the building owner.

As a result, these executives are experiencing a rapid expansion of responsibility. While budgetary alignment, engineering
and project management are still key obligations, senior management expectations have grown to include proactive approaches to risk mitigation and rapid return on investment, in locations that are often inherently risky and unstable.

3D Laser Scanning: Benefits and Paybacks for Industrial Plant Design, Construction and Operation

This paper summarizes the economic benefits of applying 3D laser scanning technologies to the design, construction and operation of industrial plants. We examine how these technologies deliver four main benefits: risk mitigation; cost reduction and schedule compression; improved safety for capital project delivery, maintenance and operations; and how these benefits are realized and exploited by asset owner/operators, engineering/construction firms and 3D laser scanning service provider contractors. This paper was commissioned by Faro Technologies, Inc., a leading supplier of 3D laser scanning solutions.
