ANKENY, IOWA—QA Graphics, an outsourcing leader in the building automation system (BAS) industry and an expert in control manufacture software, has been providing first-rate graphic design services to companies over the last eleven years. This has led to working with JBS services on the largest North American project to date using Schneider Electric StruxureWare.

QA Graphics began their relationship with JBS Services when they were hired to work on a smaller project for the same district. Now, the contract has grown to an additional 204 buildings. When asked about this project and its unique aspects, JBS Services Director Ben O’Rourke said, “JBS Services was awarded a UNC upgrade project in May 2017. This project has strict timelines, quality control, and budget expectations. Strategic partnering was of vital importance to meet the demands of such a large project. JBS found such a strategic partner in QA Graphics—professional, strong, knowledgeable staff, great communicators, and competitively priced. JBS made the right decision awarding this project to QA Graphics—the job is on time, within budget, and of the highest quality.”

QA Graphics started developing the project’s standard by using Schneider Electric StruxureWare, then proceeded with the BAS graphics and 3D floor plans. With VPN access, they’re able to quickly map live data points for these graphics to the database for each building. The efforts provided by QA Graphics to standardize the process has allowed JBS Services’ control technicians to focus on core competencies, saving JBS Services time and money, thus creating a higher return on investment for this project.

“Having live access to the buildings, while not necessary, has been a major asset for this large of project. It allows for instantaneous updates and ease of mapping the points,” said Ben Hansen, QA Graphics’ BAS Graphics Manager.
