EDGE Building Intelligence

PoE Lighting  / IoT & Building System Integration

With more than 100 completed projects, EDGE Building Intelligence™ is a leading Power over Ethernet (PoE) Lighting and IoT Integration Platform consultant. PoE LED lighting replaces AC line-voltage-powered lights with superior, innately smart network-connected and PoE powered; this reduces construction cost by $2-5 per SFT vs. traditional LED lighting and eliminates cost-plus controls required in traditional builds. 

EDGE supports developers, system-integrators, lighting designers and other professional groups resolve challenging technical implementation issues by establishing procurement and implementation guidelines in the early phases of development. We deliver complementary competencies that are required to perfect design, development and project support. When a project would benefit from your unique contribution, we’ll reach out to you for your participation.

Craig Getchell, EDGE Vice President of Business Consulting, was the former head of Cisco Systems’ Smart and Connected Real Estate Delivery in North America and the former Director of Business Development for Molex Corp. Getchell is driving EDGE's industry leading methodology for the adoption of IoT technology in a normative construction process.  With more than 15 years of experience driving successful intelligent-building projects, EDGE is the premier provider of technology consulting services for the real estate industry.​



EDGE Building Intelligence™ optimizes all design and implementation stages of your unified building system networks - lower construction and operating expenses, reduce environmental impact, improve overall operating efficiencies and occupant experience. Our proven Master Technology Planning Method supports your plan to integrate all building systems on one unified data-normalized network. This further reduces cost, increases operating and energy efficiency and creates more occupant-responsive and valuable properties. 

CONCEPT: EDGE supports design of an optimal technical architecture in consideration of use cases and business outcomes.

TECHNOLOGY & PROCESS DESIGN: Ensure that technology adoption is addressed in the traditional design documents, ensuring a cohesive and properly sequenced implementation plan. 

BID PROCESS: EDGE will provide content and support to ensure the integrity and efficacy of the bid process. We will highlight enhancements in the technology focused areas of the construction documents. 

CONSTRUCTION:  EDGE participates in communications between technology experts, construction teams, commissioning agents, ownership and property management to ensure the proper sequencing exists between the construction schedule and technology build efforts. 

COMMISSIONING: We ensure commissioning is complete and that documentation is ready to support traditional efforts. We work with solutions providers to  ensure functionality and optimal performance.

OPERATIONS: We support Property Management Staff to apply the technology to continually improve operations. We will provide training on the IoT Systems ensuring proper monitoring, maintenance, reporting, enforcement, and ongoing optimization of the real estate asset.

Unified Operations


By implementing a unified building network platform  (e.g., lighting, security and HVAC), that integrates Single Pane of Glass (SPoG) monitoring and management with Artificial Intelligence and Analytics, we create dynamically occupant-responsive premises; this becomes the new normal. All applications, such as lighting audio/video, security cameras, access systems and holistic building automation systems seamlessly interact for optimally responsive, efficient, sustainable and holistic premises. 

Optimal Architecture


Our process of defining an optimal architecture provides an opportunity to increase functionality while lowering initial costs in new construction. EDGE improve functionality and overall user experience for both new and existing buildings. At EDGE we use our industry-leading knowledge and experience to identify proven technologies that can fundamentally change how you build and/or operate a facility. We enhance the traditional specifications & drawings with the content necessary to ensure that systems procurement meets open architecture and other requirements of a green, next-generation, sustainable property. Our optimal technical architecture designs eliminate inefficiencies in the adoption of technology in standard construction projects.
