Keeping your building up to code and creating a more comfortable environment for occupants are two common reasons mechanical engineers, business owners, property managers, and others choose to either retrofit or install a new building automation system. Other reasons include:
For more than a decade, Colorado Controls has been providing businesses all around Northern Colorado with the latest in BAS technology.

One key advantage of hiring an organization such as Colorado Controls is that you get the building controls project managed and totally coordinated by one point of contact. When you have custom requirements for how and what will be implemented as part of your building automation system, having that single point of contact is tremendously beneficial. It eliminates “gaps” between subcontractors, and results in:
There are a lot of moving parts in a building automation systems installation project. Work with Colorado Controls for a building automation and energy management contractor with a long track-record of successful projects. Learn more about our past projects here:
We exclusively sell, install, and service Reliable Controls internet-connected green building controls. Reliable Controls provide a wide array of products designed to save building owners and contractors time and money. When it comes to making buildings operate in a more environmentally friendly way, the hardware and software from Reliable Controls is second to none.
Engineers and general contractors in Colorado have long understood the value of creating green building environments (GBE) for their clients. The competitive edge construction companies get by offering more environmentally conscious and technologically advanced and useful systems, is a proven strategy for getting more and better contracts.
Building owners also appreciate the advantages of building automation systems.
Tax benefits, grants, and rebates are also available for building owners to upgrade their operating systems as an extra incentive.
The biggest energy hog for buildings tends to be HVAC and lighting. An HVAC control system is usually what people ask us for, due to the idea that it’s going to save them the most amount of money. While this is generally true, it is somewhat shortsighted as an energy consumption reducing strategy. Leaving room for adding additional building systems later during an upgrade can save even more money in the long-run.
Retrofitting often starts with metering the building, so engineers get precise data about energy waste. This process helps determine a suitable template for upgrading building automation systems.
When we take a building automation upgrade project, it generally entails using the same controls and equipment currently in the building, but using new software and interfaces and allowing the legacy products in the building to interface with other systems. When it comes to retrofitting a building automation system, integration with the current system and interface is of central concern. It’s important to have clear objectives on any type of BAS project, in particular when working to integrate two systems together in a way that streamlines processes while improving energy efficiency. Work with a team with more than 12 years experience retrofitting buildings all around Colorado with control systems that meet the demands and expectations of occupants and managers alike.
Our team is licensed and trained to work with all types of building automation systems. Our technicians’ experience also makes them a reliable choice for working on both new and legacy systems. From government buildings and medical facilities to university campuses and historical buildings, we provide service for practically every environment, and are 100% committed to exceeding the expectations of those environments’ occupants.

All About Building Automation Systems
More technically speaking, a BAS is a type of distributed control system that monitors and controls all systems in the building. Building automations systems are also colloquially called “smart buildings.” Modern BAS control heating, ventilation, air conditioning, indoor and outdoor lighting, fire alarms, security, and everything else that is electrical in your building.
Building automation systems are proven effective through concrete building analytics, to show precisely where there are inefficiencies in your building, allowing to prioritize optimizations starting with the areas with the greatest saving potentials. Colorado Controls provides high-tech analytic software from Reliable Controls that help identify inefficiencies, manage services and repairs, and helps your building stay under budget.
BAS System Design
Our technicians specialize in providing accurate, detailed system automation drawings, using advanced software to provide your organization with customized planning with extensive documentation to achieve the building control system best suited for the space.
Often, one of the areas with the great potential ROI is getting your lighting system upgraded. Yet there are so many products out there to choose from, it can be challenging knowing what exactly is going to be best for your facility. Colorado Controls can help you achieve the greatest efficiency, longevity, and durability possible. Contact us now to get started on your lighting retrofit project.
Colorado Controls isn’t a “set it and forget it” BAS installation company. We also provide ongoing building automation maintenance services to help building owners stay in control of their system for the long term. Routine maintenance may involve:
Have an older system? A better optimized BAS is just a phone call away.
