Hill York’s Energy Solution Performance Group Becomes BPSI Provider in Florida
Fort Lauderdale – Hill York’s Energy Solution Performance Group has agreed to become the Authorized Service Provider and Distributor in Florida of Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear (CBRN) detection systems manufactured by Building Protection Systems, Inc. (BPSI). BPSI’s U.S. Department of Homeland Security SAFETY Act designated technology is the first complete next generation detection system proven to operate in the absence of false alarms and without human intervention to actively and reliably protect buildings, mass transit stations, stadiums, and public events from airborne toxins.
Hill York will provide BPSI’s complete Sentry One lines of active CBRN detection and identification systems to protect millions of workers and visitors, and critical infrastructure locations, throughout Florida.
According to Larry Clark, LEED AP, Director of Corporate Business Development at Hill York, “One of the goals of our Energy Solution Performance Group, since its inception in 2008, has been to provide advanced ventilation management strategies for commercial buildings. Although many of these projects may result in a significant energy savings, the primary objective of our solutions is to provide a cleaner, safer, indoor environmental quality (IEQ) for our clients. We believe BPSI’s breakthrough technology is the ideal solution to provide protection to Florida buildings, and the people within them, against both targeted airborne chemical and radiological attacks and accidental contamination. At a recent meeting of one of ASIS International’s local chapters, we had the opportunity to introduce some of South Florida’s leading security professionals to this technology and we were very pleased with their response.”
Greg Eiler, CEO of BPSI states, “Hill York is the oldest, largest – and arguably “greenest” – HVAC contactor in Florida. Partnering with them supports our goals of rapidly hardening American businesses and public gathering places against the catastrophic outcome of a CBRN terrorist attack or accidental release.”
BPSI’s Sentry One Products are US Department of Homeland Security SAFETY Act designated and have been protecting Fortune 100 office buildings in the New York market for almost two years without false alarms, an unheard of feat in the detection industry. In addition to their core product, the Building Sentry One, BPSI’s Sentry One line also includes the Metro Sentry One for protecting airports and transit stations, the Alpha Sentry One for protecting smaller buildings and schools, and the Mobile Sentry One trailer system for protecting the public at secure special events.
Sentry One: First QATT System
BPSI’s Sentry One Products are the first complete QATT (Qualified Anti-Terrorist Technology) systems that incorporate proven sensor technology with proprietary firmware and software to detect and identify a toxic attack within seconds. The Sentry One systems automatically activate the desired protocol (such as shutting down the HVAC system in a building or halting train movement through a contaminated station) to protect occupants and isolate the dangerous toxins. Critically, in parallel with the automated protocol activation, the Building Sentry One informs BPSI’s Remote Monitoring Center with real-time release data. The Remote Monitoring Center relays the real-time data to first responders to expedite a safe rescue and recovery.
BPSI is the world leader in reliable automated toxin protection systems for public gathering spaces, mass transit stations and buildings. Founded by building systems experts with more than 30 years of building infrastructure experience, BPSI’s products are U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security SAFETY Act designated Qualified Anti-Terrorist Technologies (QATT) that quickly and reliably detect, identify and isolate toxic chemicals and radioactive isotopes in the air to protect building occupants and assets.
