Building Automation Systems Managers have the overall responsibility of operating and managing a building’s automation system. They work alongside system engineers, programmers, field technicians, subcontractors and other building personnel.
Building Automation Systems (BAS) Managers can assume two distinct roles: provide leadership and oversight of a currently operational building automation system or be responsible for the design, installation, and commissioning of a new building automation system, which will be turned-over to the customer after commissioning. Both roles require BAS Managers to be problem solvers on technical challenges. BAS Managers must have strong interactive communication and negotiation skills and utilize their extensive knowledge of building automation systems, HVAC systems, building construction, and contracting to be successful.
Building automation is the automatic centralized control of a building's heating, ventilation and air conditioning, lighting and other systems through a building management system or building automation system.
