GSALEESBURG, VA, February 12, 2020 – The Building People LLC., has been awarded a $1.2 million contract by the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) to deliver best in class services for the National Capital Region (NCR) in the development of a Regional Operations Center (ROC) Master Systems Integration solution.

The ROC will deliver next generation smart building command and control capability to NCR across many of the most high-profile agency headquarters facilities in their portfolio. The platform will Introduce a standardized, unified interface for building systems, and provide a single graphical user interface (GUI) though which the GSA can monitor building systems across the region. This will allow the GSA to dedicate their resources to a larger footprint, isolate specific problems with their mechanical infrastructure in real-time, and monitor energy use and operating costs against their sustainability goals.

The purpose of the ROC is not to replace the functionality and complexities of the individual building systems, but to supplement the day to day control operations of these systems. The ROC will serve as a supervisory, monitoring and control portal into the existing systems without the need to reprogram or replace edge device equipment in each building. GSA’s efforts will enhance their Smart Building strategy to deliver improvements in tenant satisfaction, energy costs, and operational efficiency. These advantages will support GSA in meeting executive and legislative goals while delivering exceptional service to their tenant agencies.

Trevor Morrison, Director at The Building People said, “In partnering with the National Capital Region on the ROC Project, The Building People are undertaking a plan to fundamentally redesign the smart buildings paradigm for this incredibly important portfolio of buildings.” He also said, “When finished, the platform will help move the region forward from isolated, and often proprietary, building automation systems to a unified management control platform that will equip GSA to access real-time information that will change the way they do business with their contractors.”

They solve the complex challenges facing building owners, tenants and stakeholders by maximizing the workplace experience and reducing costs – all without sacrificing quality or reliability. Their approach integrates all phases of the real estate life-cycle, and their commitment is driven by a passion to innovate, lead with experience, and build long-term relationships with their clients.
