System Integration Engineer, Intelligent Building Controls Ltd (IBC)

IBC is the premier supplier of Building Energy Management Systems, Controls, Peripherals and Measurement Products in Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. We provide the products and systems to develop the most effective energy efficient buildings possible. We work with System Integrators, Architects, Builders, Developers, Contractors, Mechanical and Electrical Companies, Engineering Management Companies, Consultants etc. requiring a complete range of products or solutions to other manufacturers which may have a specific requirement(s). IBC offer CPD courses and are an authorized Engineer Ireland training provider.

THE ROLE (FUSION Project) – 18 Month Duration

This project will involve the creation of a new testing platform which will be used for building control and energy efficiency monitoring within buildings. The fusion graduate will be responsible for the integration of various off-the-shelf sensor technologies. These products will be connected to a base station and in turn a front-end supervisor which can determine energy efficiency and heating requirements for companies.  The fusion graduate will develop a testing platform to ensure compatibility between devices from multiple manufacturers as some manufacturers use vendor specific protocols and modified versions of established protocols. This will allow IBC to certify that the bespoke integration has been tested prior to arriving on-site with the customer. This project will also involve the creation of a mobile application to visualize the data that is captured by each of the sensors to allow companies to make intelligent decisions regarding building control management.
