HOW TO SPEC INTEGRATED AUTOMATION

BIDDING DIV. 25

Designing and bidding an IoT and Integrated Platform isn’t what it used to be.  Traditional controls contractors used to bid Division 23, and focused only on the building’s HVAC and control systems. Now that most building systems are connected to the Internet, a need for a better understanding of networks and the different network solutions available is crucial to our industry. Integrators and MSIs are now expected to be familiar with bidding Division 25 – Integrated Automation. This change in our industry introduces several challenges, such as:

  • Integrating more systems
  • OT Networks
  • Working with IT
  • Cybersecurity
  • Specification standardization
  • And more

Join us on our webinar with Greg Fitzpatrick, CxA, Business Development IoT and Integration of Cochrane Supply, and Ryan Hughson, Strategic Solutions Manager at Optigo Networks. We’ll walk you through the key issues of bidding on Division 25, and what skills you can and should bring to the table as an integrator.

We've all been there. When you're constantly putting out fires, sometimes a band-aid fix is all you have time for.

Commercial buildings and campuses worldwide are running on BACnet. Reports show its rate of adoption increasing year over year.

Four years ago, Penn State was at 90,000 packets per hour of broadcast traffic. At least a dozen different buildings were randomly dropping offline.
