We are excited to announce some of the improvements which have been made to Fabriq OS over the past few months in order to optimise your ability to pro-actively monitor every dimension of a building site’s environmental performance.
Since we launched Fabriq (then EnergyDeck) way back when in 2012, we have been on a mission to democratise access not only to building performance data, but also 'projects' such as resource savings measures. We did this in order to enable our users to learn from each other, easily share best practices and ultimately run better / more efficient / comfortable / healthy etc. buildings.While the functionality of the initial Projects module has been improved over the years, its look & feel and workflow has not really kept pace with the other updates we've made to the platform in the meantime, especially during the recent relaunch.That has now changed. Please welcome the new & improved Projects module, which is already accessible to all Pro and Enterprise users of the Fabriq platform.
Hot on the heels of the major Fabriq update in February we've just launched a UI upgrade and a range of new features in Fabriq OS. These include improved site level views featuring benchmarks and alert summaries. In addition, we've now merged Carbon Footprinting into Trend Analysis, which not only makes tracking more efficient, but also enables the visualisation of different metrics in the same Analytics chart.
It’s been a while ...Six years almost to this date to be exact - that we have been active in the market with EnergyDeck. 50 data source integrations, 5,000 buildings and 25,000 data feeds later, we’re still alive and kicking, and going stronger than ever.
Virtual Meters are now a standard feature in the EnergyDeck platform. They can be created for all consumption meter types and behave much the same as a physical meter. The feature has been developed to be very user friendly, using our unique “link & multiply” methodology.
Good quality data is essential for monitoring and tracking energy and resource consumption. From a single site to large property portfolios, data is aggregated and collected from a variety of sources, including utilities, sub-meters, manual readings and internal systems. With advances in technology it is becoming easier to collect data, but the reliability and completeness of this information is often hidden unless advanced analysis is carried out on a frequent basis.
The increasing focus on Health & Wellbeing of building occupiers requires companies to consider how best to manage their workplace environment. Well-known benefits from healthy indoor environments include employee / occupant well-being and increased levels of productivity, among others.
At EnergyDeck, we’re typically much better at working on platform improvements than we are at talking about them. We update the EnergyDeck system on a weekly or bi-weekly basis with a constant stream of improvements. In recent weeks we’ve also implemented a number of larger feature updates that we want to share at this point.
Apologies for the title. Yes, it helped to grab your attention. And no, we didn’t support the guy during the election and definitely no – we will not “just get along” now that he’s made it to the top. Instead we will fight harder than ever before to protect the planet and reduce our consumption of natural resources and toxic emissions. It might even make the RoW (rest of world = everyone outside of the rust belt) more united in fighting the good fight.
The property industry is notorious for sticking to existing processes and tools (or the lack thereof). Energy management in buildings is often an initiative that’s spread across various internal stakeholders and external contractors. This can lead to a loss of accountability and momentum to address inefficiencies. Implementing new solutions or technologies becomes a painfully long-drawn process. Combine the two - energy and buildings - and you have one of the most challenging markets to effect positive change in.
Managing energy can be complicated and confusing to the untrained eye. The EnergyDeck platform already provides a simple and powerful user interface to track and manage buildings. However we thought it was time that this interface was pocket sized. The perfect solution? The new EnergyDeck app.
Hot off the press: The UK’s Better Buildings Partnerships has appointed EnergyDeck as its new supplier for the Real Estate Environmental Benchmark (REEB). EnergyDeck’s CEO Benjamin Kott talks about the objectives and history of REEB, and why this appointment is good news not just for EnergyDeck but the industry as a whole.
If you lease, rent or own a property, it’s highly likely you’ll have a meter installed somewhere. Meters are found in nearly all commercial and domestic buildings. The most common meters are those which measure utility services, such as electricity, gas, water and heat networks.
