Imdaad, a leading provider of integrated facilities management solutions in the UAE, has announced that it is taking more aggressive steps to adopt cutting-edge technology solutions as part of continuing efforts to help clients further reduce energy consumption. Imdaad has pointed out that energy generally accounts for the largest controllable operating cost in any facility, noting a study by Energy Star showing that energy savings of up to 30 per cent are possible even through no and low-cost strategies.
Imdaad disclosed that energy-efficient and cost-effective facilities management solutions are increasingly becoming the norm as customers have become more value-oriented and price-conscious in light of the recent global financial downturn. The company further noted that the introduction of more advanced energy-saving tools and technologies is a logical step forward towards sustaining the growing adoption of facilities management in the UAE and across the Middle East region.
Jamal Abdullah Lootah, CEO of Imdaad, said: “It has been our strategy to constantly identify the latest technological advances in the area of energy management knowing fully well that we have greater flexibility to control energy-related operating expenditure. Studies and practical examples have clearly shown that energy savings can help significantly reduce the management and maintenance costs of facilities. We are therefore aggressively investing to adopt the latest energy-saving technologies as part of our ongoing efforts to convince more property owners and business organizations to take advantage of our fully integrated facilities management services.”
Imdaad currently offers Power Monitoring & Savings services as part of its integrated facilities management solutions. The value-added offering provides periodic monitoring of energy consumption, evaluation of service delivery programs, processes and methods, and operational improvement studies. The energy monitoring service is an interactive utilities monitoring system that helps businesses determine areas where they can cut back on water, gas and electricity consumption, ultimately reducing the facility’s carbon footprint. Moreover, the service provides real-time information that can be stored to be used for future reference.
