Government Facilities encompass almost every other type of facility or building. Although there is a special category listed here for government & military, please review the specific type of facility owned by the government. For example: government hospitals should look under the Medical Facility category. Government owned schools should look under Education. This category discusses government laboratories, bases, and structures built for military purposes.
Today, Specialized Government Facilities and Bases are under increased scrutiny to save money, protect their employees and troops, and improve function in this fast changing technical environment. IntraWorks takes a proactive approach to these issues by studying new trends in campus environments and applying electronic building system technology to help save money, reduce risk, and improve function. Additionally, IntraWorks uses a comprehensive approach to the building or campus of buildings themselves by considering ALL the electronic building systems when planning the next upgrade, move, add or change. Lastly, IntraWorks offers constant commissioning and predictive maintenance in order to save Hotel building life cycle costs. (Up to 10x according to the Department of Energy – O&M Best Practices)
Custom Military Base Security Systems
Government Facilities are targets to both insider and outsider threats to include asset, classified material, data and computer theft, workplace violence, terrorism, active shooter and vandalism. Facility managers are charged with the protection and safety of large groups of employees to sometimes including the public. By use of advanced and integrated CCTV, access control, perimeter, and intrusion systems, IntraWorks can help to reduce the likelihood of injury to the building occupants and provide valuable investigative information if an incident takes place. Video and Audio analytics can detect bombs, intruders, and even the sound of a gun being fired immediately so that authorities can be notified quickly saving lives or injury. Special purpose radios or communicators can also add security and function by keeping employees informed up to the minute of any emergencies, requests, or special needs.
Government Facilities utilize a lot of energy and resources to provide a pleasant environment for its employees. IntraWorks can provide systems that save energy costs and make the buildings more comfortable to work or stay in. By use of advanced climate controls, energy management, lighting control, daylight harvesting systems, sub-metering, and constant commissioning, our building solutions can help to save in overall energy life cycle costs.
Government Facilities are held to tight safety standards for the protection of its employees and the public. IntraWorks can provide systems that avoid injury and save lives in an emergency. By use of advance fire detection and evacuation, critical systems monitoring, mass communication, paging, mass texting, and CCTV systems, emergencies are detected early and occupants are evacuated rapidly. In the case of a shooter, weather event or outside threat, the building itself can become a safe haven for protection. Our integrated lockdown systems and bullet resistant barriers help further protect the occupants in any facility.
By truly integrating Security, Energy, and Safety Systems together, a hotel becomes more intelligent and efficient. Guests of the building are more comfortable, informed, and work more effectively. Integrating systems is a plus sum situation whereby the effectiveness of each system is augmented by becoming connected to other systems. For example: Buildings that use the security system or reception system to sense occupancy can reduce electric and HVAC costs when room occupants are not present. Fire Systems that use the HVAC system to evacuate smoke can save lives in a burning building. Intercom/Communication systems that utilize CCTV verification are more effective. When all of these systems are connected and the information becomes available to authorized persons with graphical user interfaces (smart phone, computer, tablet), the efficiency and effectiveness are unmatched by any individual system. Simply put… Intelligent buildings work better and use less energy.
