Dale Haisma, Physical Plant Director
"The inability to streamline the control of multiple systems—HVAC, lighting, security."
"I know very few people who I can call, explain my problem, and then can solve the issue without being on-site. That's extremely important."
"For the last couple of years, we've shaved off about $150,000 in utility costs, so I'm pretty happy."
"Control Solutions is one of the few companies I don't let go out to bid because I know I'm going to get a good cost, a good package, and I won't have to worry about having to deal with any issues."
Doug Hoffman, Facilities Manager
"85,000 square feet, 3 levels, and 220 employees to keep comfortable—plus an additional 80,000 patients a year."
"Optimized the building, calibrated sensors, and upgraded software. Tweaked everything and made sure it runs like it should."
"If I'm saving the doctors money, they're happy. Other than the energy savings, the ease of use is an added benefit."
"I didn't have any surprises. I don't like surprises. When they did what I asked of them, I knew it was going to be done correctly, so I didn't have to worry. Not only did they know how to apply the product, but they knew how the product was supposed to respond to the equipment. It's one thing to install a building automation system, but if you don't know what you're controlling or how it should act under normal circumstances, it can cause more damage. They were very professional, and they nailed it every time."
Ron Kraft, Superindendent
"Temperature control is a huge deal for us. We had a mixed bag of different control systems, and trying to get a system to work with multiple systems or vendors is a challenge."
"Once Control Solutions had their system up and running, we were able to see where systems weren't communicating and correct it. In many cases they had to run new wires. It appeared some of our wires weren't hooked up properly to begin with."
"Anytime that you can decrease your utility cost, it is substantial. And how do you put a price tag on the comfort of kids so they can learn?"
"I would recommend Control Solutions for anything. When you look them in the eye and shake their hand, they're going to come through. That's how these guys are."
