Building controls companies keen to influence and shape policy


With the building controls sector gaining increasing significance given the UK’s sustainability targets and the global building automation system market anticipated to rise considerably by 2031, there has been a substantial increase in the number of companies joining the Building Controls Industry Association (BCIA) in recent months.

As one of the UK’s leading trade associations, the BCIA works to ensure the acknowledgement and adoption of controls solutions within the construction industry, leading on lobbying and advocacy and promoting wider understanding and information.

Offering members the chance to influence and shape policy and legislation, and work collaboratively to shape a more sustainable future, the BCIA has been inundated with companies seeking membership in recent months.

This is in no small part to the myriad of benefits that come with being affiliated with the BCIA, such as exclusive market trend information, easy collaboration of shared interests, a pro-active network of members with which to develop business relationships, and the opportunity to position the sector as a career of choice and raise awareness.

In the first four months of 2024, the association has welcomed 17 new members, namely:

County Energy Services, Crane BSU, Energy Logic, Integral Controls, Kempston Controls, Modern Electrical Vision, Niagara Rise, Novious Building Performance, Pulse Automation, Robell Controls, Robell Maintenance, PEAC Controls, Smart Control Systems, Synergy Mission Critical, Techwise Systems, 1 Control, and Triangle Controls.

Given the important role that building automation systems will have in the decarbonisation of UK buildings and helping the government achieve its net zero target by 2050, it’s no surprise that membership numbers are increasing.

Indeed, new member 1 Control is looking forward to working closely with the BCIA to drive positive change in the industry, commenting: “As a people-first company dedicated to pushing the boundaries of Building Management Systems and creating better work environments, we’re excited to connect and collaborate with the BCIA’s network of forward-thinking industry leaders.

“We believe in the power of innovation to shape a smarter, more sustainable future. Together, we can build a stronger BMS community and drive positive change within the industry.”

BCIA President Stacey Lucas highlighted the important role that the BCIA can play in expanding industry knowledge and positioning the building controls sector as a key player in the UK’s sustainability plans.

She said: “As an organisation that leads policy and standards for its members, we offer a myriad of benefits. Members can receive regular informative emails to keep them up-to-date on all relevant industry news and regulation changes, as well as access an exclusive member’s portal and take part in training courses, discounted specifically for them.

“It’s an incredibly exciting time to be in the building controls sector, with the drive to achieve sustainability targets creating fascinating opportunities for innovation. We look forward to our new members working collectively to further the sector and champion the great work carried out by the industry every single day.”
