Buildings for better space

2015-06-10 - ABB recently launched its new building portal featuring our full range of innovative building technologies that offer customers sustainable solutions and modern design.

Recent technology advances, the rise of government mandated energy tariffs and regulations as well as higher utility costs, have put increased focus on cutting building energy costs and reducing their environmental impact. Across the full portfolio of ABB, we have a range of solutions to meet the needs of building operators, facilities managers, systems integrators, developers and electrical installers – and even home owners.

Cutting energy costs 
“Companies are increasingly implementing sustainability initiatives that also focus on energy efficiency in the buildings they operate,” says Philip Juneau, ABB’s Head of Global Strategic Alliances, Building Automation, Low Voltage Products division. “With buildings consuming about 40% of the world’s energy, ABB can help customers achieve 20 to 40% in potential energy savings.”

Your Space
The new portal focuses on two distinct segments. Living Space® which features residential and home solutions. And with Building Space®, ABB offers building solutions for commercial and industrial buildings including hotels, hospitals or other public buildings such as universities or stadiums.

With the new building portal, customers can now more easily navigate ABB’s broad portfolio that offers building owners and their occupants the highest standards in comfort, efficiency, security and simplicity.

Energy efficiency and comfort
“With today’s technology advances, the building industry is embracing new opportunities to improve energy efficiency and building occupants comfort,” added Phil. “We are seeing a trend in building automation where all the different types of electrical components and mechanical components and systems are converging together to provide an intelligent ‘Smart Building’ approach solution to building management and automation, especially with the advent of the Internet of Things (IoT).” 

Better Space Hotel
A special feature of the portal is the interactive ‘Better Space Hotel’ – a unique, virtual hotel application that customers can use to easily locate ABB components from low voltage products to drives and motors to power products.
