Between Tighter Budgets and Maintaining Building Performance.

Expectations for availability, asset performance, energy efficiency, and safety and security climb at the same time that they face many other challenges:


Aging Infrastructure

  • 75% of buildings that will be occupied in 2050 have already been built
  • Most critical infrastructure in developed countries was built over 50 years ago
  • Outdated building equipment results in large-scale cost and energy inefficiencies
  • Current maintenance approaches may not address up to 80% of facility asset failures
Key facts to consider


Labor Challenges

  • Only 20% of facility managers employ 80% of their full BMS capability
  • Many buildings have several disparate protocols and systems to be managed
  • Nearly 50% of facility managers are concerned about not having enough resources and increasing workloads
Key facts to consider


Financial Performance

  • 25% of building life cycle costs are CapEx; 75% are OpEx
  • Aging buildings cost more money to maintain and consume more energy to operate
  • Meanwhile facilities’ operating budgets are shrinking
  • An 18% cost savings can be realized using preventive maintenance than reactive approaches
