BuildingIQ also reinforced its market position in Australia by solidifying a partnership with AE Smith, which will help more building owners in Australia gain access to BuildingIQ’s cloud-based solution. Peter Ferguson, AE Smith’s general manager of building technologies stated the following during the program’s announcement, “We’ve been helping our customers improve the energy efficiency of their building for years. BuildingIQ is another smart tool that helps us to keep on delivering these results.”
“Coming off a very successful 2013, we saw continued momentum throughout this year’s first quarter,” said Michael Nark, president & CEO of BuildingIQ. “We are proud to have helped our customers free up almost half a million in cash that can be dedicated to other energy efficiency upgrades and improvements.
