GGP, Brian Turner win Digies at Realcomm IBCon 2018

By Natalie Patton | June 7, 2018

At this year’s special Realcomm IBCon 20th anniversary edition, the Digie Awards didn’t disappoint. Our longtime client GGP was nominated in two retail categories and we were delighted watch them win for the Best Use of Automation in the Retail category. The award recognized the Advanced Energy Information Systems’ operational analytics platform initiative. This project was created to manage and monitor the GGP portfolio of high-end shopping malls throughout the country. We’re proud to work with this innovative and committed team and congratulate them on the well-deserved recognition from Realcomm IBCon.

We were also thrilled to see our own Brian Turner receive the prestigious Julie Devine Digital Impact Award, pictured above with Realcomm’s CEO Jim Young. We work hard to create new solutions for building owners and operators. It is great to be recognized for our efforts.

If you’re in Las Vegas at the show, we’ll be presenting a case study at this morning’s Showcase on the GGP Woodlands Mall peak demand response program. Come by the exhibit hall and talk with us about why this project helped GGP win recognition at the Digies.

Soon we’ll be at Realcomm | IBCon in Las Vegas.┬áThis year’s show will be complete with an OTI booth, some speaking sessions and two case studies in the “Showcase.” In preparation, we’re live with our latest case study. This new report outlines our exciting demand response program completed last year for a GGP property just outside Houston.

The Woodlands Mall is a bi-level, enclosed shopping center located 30 miles north of Houston. GGP renovated the mall in 2004. Since then, General Growth Properties has included Woodlands in energy management upgrade plans that span their portfolio. As MSI of record, we created a peak demand management program based on advanced energy analytics and real time monitoring. Read our case study for challenges and success, which included a delivery date at the peak of summer heat.
