The "lifecycle" concept guides the Electra Group to provide a comprehensive package of solutions for the client, covering every stage of the project in a one-stop-shop format. The technology division is leading the Electra Group into the future, working with both existing and new buildings while utilizing pioneering technological innovations and the Internet of Things (IoT). It is yet another pillar of excellence and technological advancement for the sectors in which Electra is a market leader: construction, infrastructure, electromechanical systems, and facility management.
In addition, Electra Technologies serves as a leading contractor for low voltage systems, such as communications, fire detection, and building security. The range of solutions offered by the division includes advanced Computerized Maintenance Management Systems (CMMS), and other innovative tools and services that help each customer maximize their activities while saving on manpower and energy costs.
Switching to a Smarter Building
The office and residential building of the future – and in fact of today – is smart, economical, efficient, and especially convenient. Electra Technologies customers benefit from reduced energy costs, optimal operational efficiency, an inviting and comfortable work environment, and an upgraded customer experience that leverages smart technology, full connectivity, and advanced data analysis.
Electra Technologies views a high-rise building as a large network that can be upgraded and expanded over time, while reducing energy costs and improving productivity. All the building's systems – access control, cameras, turnstiles, reception desks, elevators, parking barriers, and more – are integrated into a central command and control system so that problems can be solved before they occur, minimizing downtime and extending the lifespan of the equipment.
The benefits are many and varied, and their impact can be felt throughout every facet of the building's activity: waiting time for elevators is shortened, parking spaces are best utilized, tenants and employees use their smart phones to pass through secure entrances, and so on. Phones can even be used to issue entry permits to guests, book conference rooms, adjust a room's air conditioning settings, and pay for lunch. The reduction of daily stress, congestion, and bureaucracy contributes to a significant improvement in the work environment, alongside real savings in maintenance and operational efficiency.
