BMS Automation and Controls

All buildings have some form of mechanical and electrical service in order to provide the facilities necessary for maintaining a comfortable working environment. These services have to be controlled by some means to ensure for example:

there is adequate hot water for sinks, 
the hot water in the radiators is sufficient to keep an occupied space warm,
that heating with ventilation and possibly cooling is provided to ensure comfortable conditions,

irrespective of the number of occupants or individual preferences.

Basic controls take the form of manual switching, time clocks or temperature switches that provide the on and off  signals for enabling pumps, fans or valves etc. The purpose of a Building Management System BMS) is to automate and take control of these operations in the most efficient way possible for the occupier/business, within the constraints of the installed plant.
