When looking to hire a building automation company, make sure you know you’re hiring a team of certified, experienced vendors and installers with demonstrated proficiency in both complex and simple controls applications. Here are some questions you should ask before signing a new contractor for your building’s automation systems.
Colorado Controls is the most trusted building automation system installer in the region. We have more than 12 years of experience and a long track record of success. Learn more about who we are and our experience here.
#1: What vendors do you work with?
A basic question that you should ask all potential automation contractors before hiring them is what control systems they can install. We here at Colorado Controls, for example, exclusively install Reliable Controls. Reliable Controls are a building controls system brand that is good for people looking for systems with simple interfaces, significant energy efficiency improvements, and flexible, well-made equipment.
#2: What are your qualifications?
Make sure you choose a controls installer that is certified and recognized by industry-leading vendors, with demonstrated proficiency and a track-record of on-budget, well-built control systems. Check out our Project Portfolio page to see some of our past work.
#3: Will you be able to complete my project on time?
Don’t hire a team that is too small for your job. Choose a company that is well-suited to meeting the needs of the scope of your needs, who have done projects similar to the one you need already in the past successfully.
#4: Do you provide documentation?
Run away from any company that doesn’t answer in the affirmative to this question. Colorado Controls will provide you functional specs, operation and maintenance manuals, software design documents, network drawings, FDA-compliant documentation, and everything else you need for proper project documentation.
#5: What do you do when the project is complete?
Some companies will slap their hands together and walk away, never to be heard from again. Colorado Controls does things differently. We provide system training, on-site services, troubleshooting services, and more. Our staff quickly responds and can help with building owners’ emergency service requests. We are completely dedicated to ensuring your building is always up-and-running, with minimum downtime or unexpected disruptions.
