DES MOINES, Iowa, Feb. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Collaboration between member firms of the InsideIQ Building Automation Alliance, an international alliance of independent building automation contractors, enables the Alliance to share best practices and function like a large national organization, although each company is an independent, local building automation, security, systems integration and energy services expert. Baker Group, a leading provider of critical building infrastructure systems based in Des Moines and a long time member of InsideIQ, has frequently partnered with other InsideIQ firms in order to provide the highest level of service to clients.

"InsideIQ member firms are dedicated to sharing best practices that strengthen their organizations," said Frank Rotello, president of the InsideIQ Building Automation Alliance. "InsideIQ members combine a broad array of business and technical experience from thousands of client projects, and more than 5,200 employees worldwide. Baker Group is an excellent example of this spirit of collaboration and has had significant success serving customers in partnership with other InsideIQ firms."

  • Baker Group partnered with Alpha Controls & Services of Springfield, Ill., to install the building automation system (BAS) at the new offices of a major banking and mortgage provider.
  • Baker Group partnered with Long Building Technologies of Denver to install the BAS for a major developer of medical office buildings when the company expanded to multiple locations.
  • Baker Group partnered with Long Building Technologies again when a major appliance manufacturer decided to update the BAS at its headquarters with new controllers and an improved graphical Person-Machine Interface (PMI).

"No one is closer to their clients than InsideIQ Members and this focus on long-term relationships helps our members clearly understand their client's evolving needs," said Rotello. "In addition, InsideIQ members are technological leaders who understand the latest developments in BAS technology. This enables us to bring insightful trends to our clients all over the world so they can effectively manage their facilities and anticipate upcoming market changes. Furthermore, InsideIQ firms work closely with manufacturers to be sure that as new products are introduced they are refined to better serve the needs of building owners."
