Encompass Blue for Office & Large Residential Buildings

Whether it be Greenfields or Brownfields, office and residential buildings are significantly complex with their myriad of subsystems. Older buildings are often not interactive, but newer ones are to some extent. Different retrofit measures impact office and residential building subsystems very differently. When wrongly fitted, these measures interact obstructively with the complexity of the building, often resulting in substantial energy and maintenance resource depletion.


With the growing urgency of elevating health, wellness, and safety, managing air quality management has grown in importance. Post-COVID protocols have increased the challenges faced in handling system uncertainties and technical challenges in retrofit projects, as well as new Greenfield projects.


Blue IoT’s sustainable building retrofit solution offers a cost-effective, short-payback program with minimal interruptions. This provides enhanced energy performance without compromising on excellent service levels and indoor thermal comfort levels within operating constraints. Blue IoT’s ‘Encompass Blue’ delivers the optimum solution for office and residential buildings, preventing the complex process of replacing major infrastructure entirely.
