4D Monitoring and Disruptive Technologies at Expo Real: showcasing predictive maintenance
With sensors deployed within the central plant, 4D Monitoring provides live performance data that can be leveraged by contractors to proactively monitor assets. At Aviator Park, for example, the M&E provider logs into the 4D Monitoring platform on a daily basis to get remote visibility of HVAC operation. This enables engineers to identify problems early so they can be resolved before tenants arrive on site.
Crucially, 4D Monitoring can be set up to automatically identify when actions are required, so the right person can be mobilised. For instance, if the air conditioning system exceeds a certain temperature, a pump starts to leak, or a filter needs to be changed, the platform will send an alert to the service provider. In effect, 4D Monitoring enables central systems within the building to tell you and your engineers when there is a problem or if an action needs to be taken. This reduces unnecessary engineer call outs, helps to improve asset life-cycles, and facilitates a shift from reactive or planned preventative maintenance to a more efficient, proactive approach.
Alongside facilitating data-led maintenance, 4D Monitoring has a number of other benefits. These include:
- Demonstrate portfolio sustainability
- Improve asset lifecycles
- Save energy
- Reduce utility costs
- Gain portfolio-wide insights into building performance
