New Case Study: Benefits of a Building Blitz

Posted by KGS Team on Jun 3, 2020 9:45:00 AM

The latest case study from KGS Buildings illustrates how a national hospital group achieved impressive results with Fault Detection and Diagnostics (FDD), addressing pressing mechanical and controls issues across four medical administration buildings in just 3 short weeks.

A ‘Building Blitz’ is when an organization puts a significant amount of resources into a building (or subset of buildings) for a short, defined period of time with a clear plan and direction to fix a specific set of issues. This strategy can be an effective approach as part of a longer term continuous commissioning or predictive maintenance program. By aggressively fixing persistent issues and restoring buildings back to their designed operation, teams can get back to prioritizing the most pressing day-to-day maintenance, energy and IAQ issues as they surface and are identified by Clockworks.

This latest case study from KGS Buildings illustrates how a national hospital group leveraged FDD software to help them conduct a “blitz”, focusing on cost savings and pressing mechanical and controls issues in their medical administration buildings. In just 3 short weeks, 872 tasks were completed, resulting in over $42k in annual savings and a 70% reduction in identified comfort and maintenance issues.
