The first non-US installation of the sustainable resource and energy management system from Quality Attributes Software (QAS) - IntelliFace - will be done in Qatar.

A total of 16 buildings will benefit from IntelliFace at this point. Thirteen systems will be installed in buildings in Education City, and another three systems will go into facilities in Doha.

IntelliFace gives facility managers the ability to monitor every aspect of a facility's operations, regardless of the systems being used. This information is essential to understanding if a building is running efficiently and, if it isn't, identifying and correcting any issues.

IntelliFace can interface with any type of existing system or platform in any format or language. This cloud application has the ability to collect limitless end-to-end "real data" from all measurable resources within a facility and then manage, analyse and store it.

It can process millions of data points in seconds and then adjust the data sets in real time. The graphic presentations present an x-ray view of the energy flow of the building, measuring the energy usage for optimum analysis and management.

IntelliFace also provides an analysis of energy and resource performance, identifying trends as well as issues that need to be addressed. With geographic flexibility, monitoring multiple buildings at one or even several locations around the world is easily done. It provides a detailed dashboard that can be configured with a variety of data presentations. Each display can track energy and resource use as well as renewables such as solar and wind.

Part of the resource management aspect is engaging the occupants and visitors in the goals and practices of the facility. IntelliFace has a tool called the GreenTouchscreen that is designed to educate occupants, raise their awareness and influence behaviour.

The GreenTouchscreen presents the features of a facility and its progress toward sustainable practices on an interactive touchscreen displayed in public area of the facility.

"The Qatar agreement is a milestone for IntelliFace and QAS and is even more impressive given the system was just introduced late last year," said Nico Willis, president of QAS.

"We are confident these projects will open up a multitude of opportunities with the Qatar Foundation, as well as with other projects the country is planning."
