Cresa Launches Advisory Group on IoT, Tech-Based Energy Savings

Cresa has launched its Integrated Control Solutions (ICS) division, led by IT and construction specialist Kevin P. Mackey (pictured). ICS was established to advise current and prospective clients on best practices to optimize the advantages offered by Internet of Things solutions and technology-based energy savings.

“Offices using managed voltages to power LED lighting, security cameras, screens and HVAC offer safer and more productive workplace environments,” said Mackey. “Our team will be able to participate in the earliest stages of an office search to help clients identify the most efficient uses for the space, leveraging the latest technologies.”

Throughout this process, ICS will collaborate with architects, engineers, lighting designers, manufacturers and end-users.

“This is an opportunity to provide clients with the ease of having an agnostic end-to-end solution provider, who will develop a program resulting in forward-thinking technology affecting the workspace and beyond,” said James Pirot, New York managing principal at Cresa.
