EDGE Building Intelligence


Master Technology Planning Process (MTP) 

Comprehensive Technology Solutions Consulting 

for Real Estate

Our team has successfully guided more than 100 projects.  EDGE's Chief Solutions Architect, Craig Getchell, led delivery for Cisco Systems’ Smart and Connected Real Estate. Craig authored The Master Technology Planning Process (MTP) to support adoption of IoT Building Systems within the normative construction process.


MTP, adopted as Cisco’s standard delivery methodology, can result in $2 - $5 per square foot construction cost savings. Our process is non-disruptive to existing teams and involves enhancing existing building systems specifications to ensure disparate systems may easily share data and make best use of high speed data links such as Ethernet and  fiber optic cable


Ethernet is capable of carrying 1,000 megabits per second (Mbps) and BACnet IP 10Mbps, while BACnet MS/TP runs 0.15 Mbps, OK for basic set points and simple binary commands, but for high-load events, such as device discovery messages, analytics, heavy alarm periods and implementation of advanced controls like AI, BACnet MS/TP is unsuitable.

FREE VALUE-ENGINEERING REVIEW:  Send us a Reflective Ceiling Plan and Lighting Schedule or the Complete Construction Document Set for any project before it goes out to bid; the earlier the better to minimize design impact -[info@edgebsmart.com]. EDGE will review and return a free cost benefit  assessments and meet with your team for in-depth review. 

PoE LIGHTING: The Value Engineering Opportunity to the lower right summarizes the project impact of replacing AC-powered externally controlled LED lights with PoE LED lighting with embedded controls. 

Unified Data Sandbox


A Secure, Open-API, IP, Building System Architecture minimizes the cost and complexity of data sharing across building systems, and simplifies use-case development, delivery and flexibility. It permits easy data collection from all systems in a data repository simplifying  implementation of Single Pain of Glass monitoring and management.

A cohesive data environment makes it possible and inexpensive to create and test new Use-Cases. Data uniformity reduces cost and points of failure by reducing the need for 3rd party gateway devices and middleware and improve adaptability to future technologies.

Solutions for Real Estate

By optimizing guidelines for IoT building systems selection, EDGE simplifies adoption, lowers construction costs, operating expenses, reduce environmental impact, and improve occupant experience.

CONCEPT: EDGE enhanced specifications consideration of developer-defined use-cases and business priorities. 

TECHNOLOGY & PROCESS DESIGN: We develop and rewrite specifications to ensure cohesive and properly sequenced technology implementation plans and adoption procedures.

BID PROCESS: EDGE provides content and support to ensure the integrity and efficacy of the bid process. 

CONSTRUCTION: EDGE participates in communications between technology experts, construction teams, commissioning agents, ownership and property management to ensure cohesion among the construction schedules and technology implementation efforts.

COMMISSIONING: We ensure commissioning and documentation is complete and ensure functionality and optimal performance.

OPERATIONS: We help Property Management apply the technology to ensure proper monitoring, maintenance, reporting, enforcement, and ongoing optimization of the real estate asset.

Unified Operations


By implementing a unified building network platform  that integrates Single Pane of Glass (SPoG) monitoring and management with analytics, we can create occupant-responsive premises. 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.
