Integrating a BAS into design

December 30, 2020

Mechanical engineers Casimir Zalewski and Derek Crowe explore in Consulting-Specifying Engineer the positive impacts of building automation systems

Building automation systems are key to creating high-performing, integrated and accessible spaces. Engineers are experts at designing systems to meet a specific criterion, but the reality is that system capabilities far exceed one specific criterion.

In this peer reviewed article, Mechanical engineering principal Casimir Zalewski and mechanical team leader Derek Crowe share insights on how to:

  • Engage the owner, installers, and equipment representatives on what needs building controls and why.
  • Define the process on how to lay out a control system with key checkpoints.
  • Understand how to implement construction documents with clear requirements for the team.
