The Silicon Review
“Our services can be deployed selectively to meet the needs of any building across any size portfolio or geography.”
With the ushering in of the Internet age, many argue that every aspect of daily life will soon be fully integrated with the web. Internet pioneer Steve Case of AOL fame coined this era as the Internet of Everything (IoE), spanning beyond today’s Internet of Things (IoT).
In the buildings industry, an Internet of Everything building might look like artificial intelligence (AI) working in perfect harmony with increasingly powerful, embedded processors within devices installed in the building. These intelligent buildings would have self-diagnostics capabilities and self-adjust to fluctuations in external or internal conditions.
In light of the above-mentioned scenario, we’re thrilled to present BuildingIQ, Inc.
BuildingIQ engages in the design, development, engineering, sale, and installation of integrated software projects in the United States, Canada, and Australia. Its software solutions are used for the reduction of energy, operations, and maintenance costs of various building systems, such as heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems.
The company was incorporated in 2012 and is headquartered in San Mateo, California.

BuildingIQ, Inc:Leading from the Front
BuildingIQ is an energy management software company whose mission is to redefine the way energy is managed in commercial buildings. BuildingIQ’s suite of software offerings utilizes Predictive Energy Optimization – the only energy management software platform that forecasts energy demand and automatically adjusts a building’s HVAC settings to continuously optimize energy use and peak loads. The company works with existing building energy management systems and utility demand response systems and incorporates weather forecasts, occupant comfort, utility prices and demand response signals in its optimization algorithms. It automatically reduces energy consumption, cost, and emissions while maintaining or improving occupant comfort.
These offerings reduce energy cost and consumption, helping facility owners, managers and occupants get more value out of their existing energy systems. BuildingIQ has commercialized 15+ years of building control systems, modeling and comfort research developed by the world-leading experts at the Energy Division of the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), Australia's national research organization, and combined it with industry expertise to offer commercial facility owners and managers high value solutions with no capital expense outlay.
The company has been honored as Winner of the AIRAH Award for Excellence in Innovation, Tech23's Greatest Potential Award, Red Herring's Asia 100 Award and most recently, Environmental Design + Construction and Sustainable Facility's Readers' Choice Award and Connectivity Week's Buildy Award.
