Brisbane Airport selects CIM to help improve operational efficiency and sustainability

June 23, 2022

CIM, the world leading building analytics SaaS platform helping Australian companies achieve net zero emissions, has partnered with Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC), the operator of Brisbane Airport. As part of a commitment to reducing their environmental impact and improving operational efficiency, BAC has selected CIM to provide building operations monitoring across their Domestic Terminal. The announcement comes after Queensland experienced a bumper period for tourism with record increases in visitor figures through April and May. The Easter break proved a turning point, with Brisbane Airport recording its busiest day in two years. This promising spike in traffic brings operational challenges. Airports are highly complex environments with a vast amount of technology and equipment for onsite teams to manage.

“As optimism around travel continues to ramp up, our ability to maintain a smooth operating environment will become increasingly critical. Proactively picking up on faults through continuous monitoring will allow us to meet our ambitious sustainability targets while servicing a growing visitor base with minimal disruption.” explains Kevin Blazely, Building Asset and Maintenance Manager, Brisbane Airport Corporation.

CIM’s PEAK Platform harnesses building analytics, machine learning, and artificial intelligence to deliver immediate insights into building operational performance. It identifies and facilitates quick resolution of inefficiencies in large plant and equipment such as heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems, significantly improving operational efficiency and reducing carbon emissions.

David Walsh, CEO and founder, CIM said, “We are delighted to partner with Brisbane Airport as they look to optimise their building operations. PEAK will be continually scanning Brisbane’s Domestic Terminal HVAC system for performance anomalies, instantly detecting, diagnosing and prioritising live faults for onsite teams to address. This means the various moving parts within the terminal can run seamlessly and efficiently.”

CIM makes it easy to operate large buildings at their peak operational performance and deliver economic and environmental benefits for shareholders, customers and society.

“With building analytics technology, our sector has the biggest opportunity to quickly and cost-effectively cut carbon emissions and play a critical role in curbing climate change. Innovative operators like Brisbane Airport Corporation are showing Australia and the world how this can be done and we look forward to forging a strong partnership” says Mr Walsh.
