BIT Building is Southface’s facility management, maintenance, and operations program that equips building operators to reduce energy, water, and waste consumption. BIT provides verifiable recognition for building ops improvements via 3rd-party certification, and it works for all existing buildings and tenant-controlled spaces (except single-family residential) regardless of the building’s age or current level of performance.
BIT Building’s 16 Best Practices for Sustainable Operations & Maintenance were established as a simple, cost-effective, and holistic set of industry standards that, when implemented, result directly in performance improvements for facility operations.
The soft launch of BIT Building began in 2018 in partnership with WSP, a leading engineering professional services firm. Google, Adobe, The Chicago Housing Authority, and numerous other organizations became early adopters. By the end of 2021, BIT Building projects already achieved an enormous cumulative impact. Development of BIT Building’s online platform is nearing completion, and the full program launch is slated for 2023. Join us as we take this powerful facility operations program to scale!
