The Intelligence Behind Smart Buildings in San Francisco and Bay Area

Can a smart building 'think' about your operating budget? Is it possible for a building automation system to learn how a building is actually used and consistently improve tenant comfort and energy efficiency? With Automatic Controls Engineering on your team, the answer an absolute "Yes."

We are a BMS/BAS and mechanical services company serving all of the Bay Area, including Marin, San Francisco, Alameda, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Monterey, and Contra Costa counties. Beyond making buildings smarter by integrating HVAC, lighting, security, and access controls, our C10 license allows us to perform mechanical and electrical maintenance services.

Automatic Controls Engineering operates with the notion that modern building owners and operators are seeking something more than just a "see you again in six months" approach to DDC systems and mechanical maintenance. Today's building managers and owners are looking for a collaborative approach toward system selection and implementation. Collaboration yields a greater return on investment. That's good business. That's smart business. With our more than 40 years of experience, we aim to be the intelligence behind your smart building.

About Our Team

Automatic Controls Engineering is a service-driven BMS/BAS provider serving San Francisco and the Bay Area. When you work alongside Automatic Controls Engineering, our engineers, technicians, and building automation experts will work side-by-side with your staff, contractors, or property managers. As a full-service company, we not only install, service, and maintain DDC systems, but ensure they work correctly -- day in, day out. This means giving your staff the training, tools, and knowledge required to ensure the system works correctly.

Who We Serve

We are proud to have completed a number of high-profile smart building, retro-commissioning, mechanical maintenance, and continuous commissioning projects in San Francisco and throughout the Bay Area. To maximize efficiency and indoor comfort, it's not enough to have systems integrated into a central controller. As a BMS/BAS company, we know that building conditions change on a seasonal, daily, and even hourly basis. We install building management systems that continually gather usage and conditions data, which is then used to make predictive adjustments, ensuring optimal comfort, efficiency, and system longevity.

Our service area encompasses the greater Bay Area:
Marin, San Francisco, Alameda, San Mateo, Santa Clara,
Monterey and Contra Costa counties.
