BMSI finalist at 2017 BCIA Awards

BMSI has been awarded finalists in four categories at 2017 BCIA Awards  

A team of independent judges has awarded BMSI finalists in four categories for the 2017 BCIA  Awards. The BCIA received a record number of entries this year, showing an increased standard of excellence across the entire industry. Such high calibre entries presented the team with a difficult task, but we’re pleased to announce that we’ve been shortlisted for each of our four award entries.

Best Service and Maintenance Provider

Sponsored by Western Automation

The experience and expertise of BMSI is nowhere more evident than in the regular maintenance and monitoring of a large BMS at Royal Liverpool University Hospital – the largest and busiest Hospital in Merseyside and Cheshire. Managing such a facility is complex, especially maintaining a challenging and comprehensive network of systems, ageing plant and BMS components dating back to the 1960s. This required a dedicated partner proven in understanding specific requirements and providing cost effective service, repairs and 24/7 emergency response – ensuring the facility performed as reliably and efficiently as possible without presenting risk to the end-customers.

QinetiQ-Blended PPM, Support and Energy Engineering Contract

QinetiQ needed a solution that would enable it to monitor energy usage, reduce cost inefficiencies are ensure energy efficiency measures are employed across its sites including Farnborough,

Boscombe, Malvern, Hebrides and Aberporth. The current HVCA SFG20 type contract was changed to a blended PPM & Energy Engineering contract without incurring any additional cost. Since introducing the new contract—approximately 6-months ago—electricity and gas consumption across the largest site is showing an 11% reduction on the previous year period (July 2016 to March 2017). This equates to a saving of approximately £150k this financial year.
