BMSI Sales role – Scotland

BMSI’s Annual Sales Conference sets the tone for a hugely Successful 2020

BMSI’s annual sale conference took place earlier this month and once again set the bar for an incredibly successful year ahead for the prominent BMS provider.

 

Taking place on  6th – 7th February at the Hilton Hotel, Canary Wharf in central London, the event was hosted by the BMSI board of Directors and was attended by over 40 members of BMSI personal, including all regional managers from across the UK, plus 23 sales and business development engineers.

 

The conference was an opportunity to take an informative look back on the successes of 2019, including a 25% increase in turnover, a record number of orders, plus a rapid amount of growth across all UK regions. BMSI’s 2019 order input surpassed £22m and has once again enjoyed an extremely profitable and cash generating year in business.

 

Delighted with the successes of 2019, and looking forward to an even better 2020, BMSI Sales Director, James Smith, has high hopes for 2020, forecasting the following insights:

 

“We have great expectations for BMSI in 2020 and we’re already on track to achieve a 16% increase in turnover on 2019’s figures, as well as generating an order input of an estimated £30m.

 

We’re also focused on the continued investment of our ‘Energy Services’ offering and have an unwavering commitment to investing in the future of our superb sales team. All in all, 2019 has been a fantastic year for the company and we look forward to continuing to build the best in business in the market place.”

 

 

Continuing to sing the praises of the team and reflect upon the success of last week’s conference, BMSI Director, John Axten had this to add:

 

“This year’s annual sales conference was the perfect opportunity to reflect upon 2019’s achievements and celebrate the superb work employed by our valued team members and rapidly expanding regions. We were also joined by our partners Trend & Schneider for some informative and highly valuable sessions from their teams, and also by our in-house energy service team, headed by the indomitable Jen Johnson.

 

The event also allowed us to recognise the outstanding achievements of individual sales personnel and the best performing regions for 2019, the ideal way to round-off a great event and a hugely successful year.”

BMSI Help Heathrow to reduce Carbon Footprint

Heathrow Airport is a huge consumer of electrical power and as such any initiative that works to reduce electrical energy saves the airport considerable sums of money, and improves their carbon footprint.

 

One area of focus is the HVAC controls and the Air Handling Units in particular.  Even small adjustments to these systems can significantly improve the working environment and passenger areas.

 

To contribute to reducing energy usage at Heathrow Airport, BMSI identified where the most energy was being consumed and subsequently the most appropriate units to install for the most efficient upgrade.

 

The traditional belt-driven fan motors were replaced with innovative energy-efficient EC Fan Motors. Then, using the existing Trend BMS controls, BMSI were able to further reduce the motor speeds and keep the working environment for passenger areas.

 

Benefits have not only been the reduction in noise from the change of fans, but via the high level interfaces we now have a better understanding and control of the systems overall, with each EC fan being monitored via the Modbus interface.  This has been supplemented by other projects, including installing additional sensors to export all the Trend data to a Heathrow Global Scape SFTP server.

 

This has enabled the Trend BMS system configuration to be altered to further reduce the energy consumption at Terminal 5 and at the same time keeping the working passenger environments constant.

 

 

“BMSi have consistently provided an expert and professional service with regards to our Building Management Systems pan Airport. BMSi are always willing to help, no matter how complex the project is. They also provide a thorough understanding of Heathrow’s unique customer base. Their professionalism runs throughout the company from the Engineers on the shop floor through to their administration team and project managers. BMSI always going that extra mile to ensure Heathrow have optimised HVAC controls, as demonstrated in the recent EC Fans project that is saving 10Gwh per year and therefore £1.2 million on this project alone.  I look forward to continuing to work with BMSI.”

BMSI’s Northern Region Celebrate Successful Start to the Year!

This summer, BMSI’s Northern office embarked on a day out in Liverpool to celebrate a successful first 6 months of the year.

 

In aid of a positive start to 2019, plus keen to utilise an opportunity for teambuilding, BMSI North enjoyed a raucous game of Junkyard Crazy golf in Liverpool city centre. Unsurprisingly, the game wasn’t short of a healthy dose of competition between teams.

 

BMSI Regional Manager, Adam Cain, describes how the day panned out:

 

“We decided to split into our groups and then hacked our way around the junkyard golf course, where it inevitably got very competitive! Lewis Rotheram was crowned the very worthy, inaugural BMSI Crazy Golf Champion after a tense few holes and was sure to be humble in his victory…

 

The team then headed out into the city centre to sample some of Liverpool’s bars before going on to eat at a buffet restaurant. The highlight of the meal was Chris Collins dropping a tray full of cold beers onto the table, but somehow still managing to save his own pint, typical! All in all, it was a great day with a hell of a lot of laughter, and a wonderful opportunity to spend the day bonding with the team and reflecting on a tremendous start to the year!”

BMSI Reflect upon London Bridge Station Success!

In 2018 the London Bridge Station redevelopment (LBSR), was officially re-opened by HRH Prince William, and BMSI are delighted to look back upon an incredible project.

 

James Smith, BMSI Sales Director is delighted to reflect upon the success of the project, commenting:

“The scope and innovative nature of this project was a great achievement for the BMSI team and one that we’re proud to shout about since its completion. The scale of the work completed at LBSR is testament to our capabilities and capacity to deliver above our customers’ requirements, now and in the future.”

 

Taking place over 6 years, expanding the station to 16 Platforms and covering an area the size of Wembley Stadium, the revolutionary redevelopment at LBSR incorporates a staggering 76 Retail Units, as well as expanded staff accommodation and facilities.

Working for NG Bailey (on behalf of Network Rail) BMSI carried out design, supply and installation of the associated Trend BeMS, consisting of 35 MCC Panels, 36 Control Panels and 76 Retail Unit back plates. 65 sets of FCU Controls were also fitted across three levels throughout the Station. The Trend system is based upon the IQ4E ranges of controllers and Modules.

As well as plant control and monitoring at LBSR, the BeMS relays selected alarms to the SMS (Station Management System), together with almost 300 meters continuously monitored and recorded. Boiler, Chiller and Ventilation plant are also all controlled and monitored by the BeMS, plus an extensive Condense Water system provides individually metered energy to all the Retail Units, ensuring an innovative energy-efficient solution to a vastly upgraded, premium facility.

BMSI welcome Uxbridge Students to experience a career in BEMS

Earlier this month BMSI were delighted to invite three students from Uxbridge College to spend a week shadowing BMSI staff and experiencing first-hand what a career in BeMS/HVAC Controls really looks like.

 

Following an initial induction day at BMSI’s Windsor office, students were assigned to different BMSI engineering teams operating across London and the South East, enabling them to spend time with our trained engineers on some of our leading sites.

 

This initiative is part of a drive within BMSI to give greater opportunity to young, motivated people interested in a career in electronics and/or electrical engineering to consider joining the BeMS industry.

 

BMSI MD, Jon Axten, discusses why the company are so dedicated to nurturing young talent at BMSI:

 

“Allowing students access to our  sites such as Heathrow Airport and Great Ormond Street Hospital, to experience first-hand the demands of keeping installed BeMS systems operating to optimum levels, was an absolute pleasure for the entire BMSI team to be involved in.

 

We have made a commitment to again appoint new Apprentices across our UK business later this year and we were interested to hear feedback from our work experience students particularly on what we need to do as an industry-leading employer to make sure the employment opportunities we offer are attractive to the best engineers of tomorrow, something which we are dedicated to ensuring.

 

It was also pleasing to hear feedback from our own experienced engineers about how they were energised sharing their knowledge and experience with young people who are keen to listen and learn. This event has been a great success for all concerned and one we will certainly look to repeat.”

Support Business Development team celebrate training success with Junkyard golf fun

BMSI’s Support Business Development team enjoy a successful training day at the BMSI MediCentre, Daresbury, followed by a competitive game of junkyard golf!

 

National Support Sales Manager, Jen Johnson, who coordinated the training event, was delighted with the outcome:

 

“The technical training we held at Daresbury was a superb opportunity for us to run through the fundamentals of energy management and building analytics with the team and why it is so important that we can support our customers in these areas.

 

Most importantly, we discussed how our MediBox and Medic solution can provide real-time monitoring and analysis, reducing ongoing support costs for our customers and highlighting significant energy savings.  What really capped off the day however, was the surprise win by Midlands Development Manager Ben Summers during junkyard golf, with a rather depleted Keith Bankier and Allan Tannock bringing up the rear!” 

 

Taking place at BMSI’s MediCentre in Daresbury, which is the central hub for remote activity and technology at BMSI, the Sales Support team enjoyed a fully-immersive day of training, combining both projects and support elements to further develop their understanding of energy management and building analytics.

 

Following a fulfilling day of developing their skills and knowledge, the team then enjoyed an evening playing junkyard golf in Manchester city centre, alongside dinner and drinks.
