New York, NY – Rudin Management, one of the largest privately held property management companies in NYC, will deploy the Di-BOSS(TM) digital building operating system in 14 additional commercial properties following positive pilot tests in two of Rudin's largest NYC buildings. The Di-BOSS operating system is a joint development of Selex ES, Rudin Management, and Columbia University's School of Engineering and Applied Science.
Di-BOSS brings several unique features to the building operating system market. it interfaces seamlessly with a building's systems. It integrates these systems into one, easy-to-use, cockpit style control panel to provide comprehensive, real time data. Di-BOSS tracks energy use by tenant, giving tenants more control over costs and savings opportunities. Online portals show energy consumption versus other tenants and properties. Di-BOSS provides continuous feedback that generates data for optimal efficiency decisions and its unique technology ties energy consumption to occupancy for effective planning.
John Gilbert, EVP and COO at Rudin Management, says, "Our Di-BOSS pilot tests generated compelling savings immediately, almost $500K at one building in six months. Di-BOSS provided data that allowed our tenants to save energy and money, too. Controlling costs and conserving energy are key components of successful tenant retention."
