Fault Detection and Diagnostics

Building Operations and Maintenance uses smart building technologies through our Fault Detection and Diagnostics (FDD) program. FDD is a software tool used to proactively discover building system problems and identify optimization opportunities before they lead to alarms, excessive waste of resources, occupant discomfort or system failure. Check out the FDD page to learn more.
