GEZE Middle East bespoke R3 programme offers solutions for existing buildings to improve sustainability and energy performance
Smart building technologies enable the conservation of energy and offers one of the quickest, most cost effective and environmentally friendly ways to reduce overall costs. GEZE, a global leading player in building technology provides building automation systems for doors and windows that monitor and regulate tasks such as heating, air conditioning, lighting, environmental variables, security and appliances. When integrated in a building, these solutions can contribute to lower operational costs and a smaller carbon footprint in the long run.
In light of this understanding, GEZE Middle East recently launched a retrofitting application programme that they termed R3 Programme, which stands for Refurbishment, Remodelling and Replacement. The initial idea for this programme was conceived in 2014 and since then has been developed with the GEZE Middle East vision and strategy to retrofit automation solutions into existing structures with a process that is non-invasive and hassle free.
“From a general perspective, the expected lifetime and service life of building technology is far shorter than that of the building itself. Engineered systems such as those designed and installed by GEZE need to be serviced from time to time and updated based on ever shifting upgrades made available in the market. In the event that the technology becomes obsolete or cannot be upgraded, the system will need to be completely replaced or overhauled. In addition, safety technology systems will also need to be updated, upgraded or replaced and reintegrated in the event that a new law or new standards has been signed off.” Commented Charles Constantin, managing director of GEZE Middle East.
The experts at GEZE Middle East are well adept and knowledgeable when it comes to building system requirements in the region. They are constantly trained with regard to the changing regulations and directives. With the new R3 programme, GEZE’s qualified team go through a thorough analysis and appraisal of the building engineering structure before providing their best recommendations of future-proof GEZE products for the optimal doors and windows automatic solutions integrated within the building structure.
GEZE offers a comprehensive range of engineered systems and automatic solutions from the automated doors, the upgrade of building technology, equipment and finally the modernization of a building with emergency exit solutions. Now, with GEZE’s new R3 programme clients can even choose to update their existing design to harmonize with the latest concepts.
