Kaiser Permanente Enterprise Automation Strategy

Kaiser Permanente continues to lead the way in healthcare innovation with their shift to performance-driven commissioning, supported by a new nationwide automation infrastructure and Altura Analytics.

Kaiser Permanente sought out Altura’s continued partnership and expertise to develop and implement nationwide standards for building automation systems and commissioning to ensure high levels of project performance while reducing construction costs, risk and time. Altura’s Performance Delivery process efficiently combines key design and peer review tasks while ensuring the highest levels of repeatability in HVAC controls system design and performance.

As Master Systems Integrator, Altura is leading the Smart Building design process along with other design and construction partners. Altura has helped craft an efficient and maintainable Smart Building infrastructure for the Center of Excellence (CoE) program, including high efficiency rooftop packaged unit design with packaged boiler skids, supporting KP’s commitment to GHG emissions reductions. These components have been carefully selected to ensure the highest levels of controllability and optimization while using “off-the-shelf” systems that can be easily maintained.

Altura is extending the CoE program approach by integrating controls and commissioning to improve occupant comfort, optimize equipment energy performance and reduce schedule risk and cost. It is also designed to give Kaiser flexibility in procure local controls support while ensuring consistency across the portfolio.
