IFMA Recognizes LOBOS Project for Going “Beyond the Box”

Monday, June 2, 2014

COFAXWhile it’s true that hard work is its own reward, a little public recognition certainly doesn’t hurt. And though we aren’t in the energy efficiency business for trophies and top honors and accolades and all that stuff, we do love it when our innovative LOBOS software is recognized for its truly revolutionary capabilities. So we’re jumping up on our soapbox, yet again, to let the world know that another building automation system upgrade featuring LOBOS software has won an award.

This time, the Rocky Mountain Chapter of the International Facility Management Association (IFMA) has bestowed its Colorado Facilities (COFAX) Leading Edge Elements Award on the USAA Mountain States Regional Administrative Headquarters and their building automation system upgrade featuring LOBOS EE. The award recognizes a “project that implements ‘Beyond the Box’ concept or design in an effort to incorporate innovative concepts … [and] demonstrates a new way to utilize an existing facility … building systems or technology.” The systems integrator in charge of the project was LONG Building Technologies out of Littleton, Colorado, and the site is a three-building, 500,000-square-foot campus in Colorado Springs.

The COFAX Awards, presented at a gala on Saturday, April 12, 2014, are meant to recognize outstanding achievement and efforts toward efficiency and sustainability within the facilities management profession. The award is for facilities managers and vendors who contribute to this effort, and the facilities professionals at the USAA building and LONG definitely fit the bill. Their collaborative effort and their decision to include LOBOS EE in their repertoire of efficiency upgrades are slated to generate more than one million kWh in annual energy savings.

“LONG Building Technologies is thrilled to see the USAA project get the recognition it deserves,” said LONG sales engineer Bob Cleaver. “We are constantly seeking out new technology that will help our clients achieve their efficiency goals, and the inclusion of LOBOS EE in the USAA systems upgrade portfolio made all the difference. We are happy that the client tried this new technology and that it worked so well. To be recognized in the Leading Edge Elements category by such an influential group is a huge honor and we couldn’t be more proud.”
