Client Journey: Colliers International
18 potential frozen pipe incidents avoided
Similar to other properties in New York, cold weather presents a number of challenges to building operators. When temperatures drop below freezing, the Colliers team had to be vigilant that pipes exposed to outside air intake would not freeze and eventually burst.
Enertiv deployed a customized “Freeze Watch” sensor package that met the needs of the portfolio for a low cost. Dozens of wireless temperature sensors were installed throughout the property in strategic locations to continuously track temperatures around the plumbing infrastructure.
In the first month that Freeze Watch was deployed, the platform helped avert 18 potential incidents. In addition,the portfolio saved costs associated with overtime pay and freed up operator time for more value-add activities.
