About

COMPANY

Terry Herr has experience in every facet of the Building Automation Systems (BAS) space. He started his career as a commercial electrician earning a Journeymen's license through the IBEW. He spent several years working at a nuclear power plant in the Start-up & Test (Commissioning) team. During this time, he worked his way through college earning a B.S. in Physics. In 1990 he founded his first company to focus on installation/wiring of BAS for the largest players in the industry - Siemens, Johnson Controls, & Honeywell. In 1995 he founded his second company doing turn-key BAS as a Johnson Controls Authorized Controls Specialist (ABCS). 18 years and 400 projects later, Terry's companies have engineered, installed, commissioned, and serviced systems manufactured by Johnson Controls, Honeywell, TAC (Schneider-Electric), Distech, Circon, Tridium, Iconics, and Delta Controls.

  • Our Value Proposition - The right technology, people, and processes.

    We assist building owners in choosing the best technology, and applying it correctly. The key results are improved comfort and thus productivity, reduced maintenance cost, and reduced energy use. We are techies, and always testing, and using the best available technology. We have assembled a very capable team, and we have develop the best processes to apply the technology most effectively.
