BELTSVILLE, Md. — PRES Energy, a national real estate services company, has partnered with Pritchett Controls, an InsideIQ Building Automation Alliance member, for the delivery of energy management system (EMS) solutions for PRES Energy customers nationwide. Pritchett will rely on other members of InsideIQ, an international alliance of independent building automation contractors, to provide local support to PRES Energy customers.

PRES Energy decided to work with a partner for the delivery of EMS solutions in order to provide a consistent product from one customer site to another. The company selected Pritchett Controls, a systems integration and control technology provider, based on its EMS expertise and membership in InsideIQ. Pritchett Controls will provide systems integration with HVAC equipment and on-site power generation as well as the deployment of energy optimization measures and regulatory compliance strategies.

Pritchett has developed a consistent graphical user interface to be used at each site. Additionally, Pritchett provides control system design and develops programming logic for the execution of the energy optimization strategies. Pritchett Controls partners with a local InsideIQ member firm for the installation and commissioning of each system installation. The local InsideIQ member also provides ongoing support after the installation is complete.

“To date, systems have been installed in over a dozen locations including Arizona, California, Colorado, Georgia, Ohio, Michigan, Missouri, Texas, Pennsylvania, Virginia and New Jersey, with Pritchett working in close coordination with the local InsideIQ partner in each of those areas,” said Pete Ewart, vice president, business development for Pritchett Controls.

“With a national network of energy and building management systems experts in place, InsideIQ is the perfect partner for PRES Energy as they implement EMS solutions for customers across the U.S.,” said Paul Strohm, president of the InsideIQ Building Automation Alliance. “InsideIQ members are leading independent contractors offering advanced technology solutions with a localized focus and commitment to customer service.”
