Plymouth, Mich.-based arbnco announced the company’s real-time commissioning feature is integrated with Washington, D.C.-based Arc Skoru Inc.’s Arc performance platform. The integration allows users to seamlessly exchange to real-time indoor environmental quality monitoring, energy use and ENERGY Star benchmarks between the arbnco and Arc platforms. This provides capabilities to measure building efficiency and promote occupant health and well-being.

“It’s easy to get caught up in the operational side of building management such as profitability and energy efficiency, and lose sight of the importance of healthy, happy and productive building occupants, which we know can directly affect a company’s bottom line,” said Maureen Eisbrenner, co-founder and CEO at arbnco. “We are grateful to work alongside Arc to offer tools that monitor air quality and focus on the human aspect of building efficiency. Our latest real-time commissioning feature now offers users the ability to take sensor data and take both preventative and reactionary measures to ensure complete building efficiency and wellness.”

The Arc platform is used by projects and organizations across 87 countries to collect, manage, analyze, score and communicate information about operational performance. Arc provides buildings (from the single to while portfolio scale), city and community projects with an operational performance score for their projects across five categories, including energy, water, waste, transportation and human experience. Users can leverage this performance score to benchmark against other buildings or projects, make improvements, realize greater efficiencies that can translate into cost savings, reach higher levels of sustainability performance and achieve LEED certification and recertification.
“We are excited to continue building upon our relationship with arbnco and their software suite,” said Chris Pyke, senior vice president at Arc Skoru. “In assessing building efficiency and success, an integrative approach is imperative. Arbnco’s focus on both efficiency and operations, alongside occupant health makes for an ideal combination, and we’re thrilled to offer their services to our users.”
