AtSite Mobilized Storm Center Support Team to Aid Clients

WASHINGTON, Nov. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- AtSite, Inc., an innovative integrator of Building Performance Solutions, announced today that during Hurricane Sandy it mobilized a Storm Center Support Team to aid customers that own and operate numerous buildings in Sandy's path, from South Florida to Washington, D.C., and throughout the Northeast. The team had a very specific mission: Identify high-level utility outages and analyze building equipment to spot failures, anomalies and related hidden conditions that might indicate hazards.

"While we are not typically part of emergency preparedness or response protocols, we knew our clients would have their hands full with real emergencies, so we tried to help take some things off their plates," said Tim Clark, Senior Vice President of Operations, AtSite.

A big part of AtSite's business is monitoring and analyzing building performance, which typically includes monitoring real-time data on building electricity, gas and water service. While building teams were dealing with real property and life safety issues, AtSite helped give visibility into real-time conditions and remotely explored problems that might take hours or even days to uncover.

AtSite's portfolio of clients is primarily composed of organizations that have a number of buildings, where visibility can be very challenging, especially during such a large storm event. Local clients include Adventist HealthCare, with hospitals and medical buildings from Maryland to New Jersey, and commercial real estate company Monday Properties, with buildings located from Northern Virginia to Manhattan.

As Sandy moved north from the Bahamas, AtSite assembled the Storm Center Support Team, working both inside AtSite's Washington, D.C.-based operations center and remotely from locations outside the region. Storm support analysts worked in round-the-clock shifts through a cloud-based portal, interrogating client buildings in search of any issues that might help people respond. AtSite undertook a similar exercise after the earthquake that rocked the Washington region in 2011, looking for difficult-to-spot gas leaks after the quake subsided.

As Sandy moved up the coast Sunday night and through Tuesday morning, the support team was literally seeing equipment shut down and buildings go dark. Communications prior, during and post storm were circulating between company analysts, operations personnel and building teams as conditions were changing. At the peak of the storm, AtSite had roughly 5 percent of its northeast client buildings in some state of duress or without power completely, including one hospital campus in New Jersey and a nursing home in Delaware.

"This was a terrible storm that impacted so many lives," said Davor D. Kapelina, President and CEO, AtSite. "I'm glad we were able to lend a hand and hopefully, in a small way, helped some people get through it all safely."

AtSite has also set up a Hurricane Sandy relief fund whereby the company is matching all contributions made by employees that will be directed to the American Red Cross relief efforts.
