advanced institutional metering

A comprehensive metering solution for multi-building institutional properties and campuses.


QMC’s Advanced Institutional Metering (AIM) Program is a comprehensive metering solution for multi-building institutional properties and campuses.

AIM includes the integration of existing meters of all utilities, the supply and install of new meters, the deployment of a non-proprietary communications infrastructure, and the automation all of the meters onto a web-based reporting software.

applicable to all institutional types

  • AIM is applicable to all properties ranging from universities, colleges, health centres, military bases, corporate campuses
  • All utilities – electricity, water, gas, thermal, steam
  • Communications via wired or wireless solutions
  • Integration of most existing meters
  • Supply and commissioning of all new meters
  • All data on open protocol, non-proprietary systems​
  • Reporting with QMC’s Meterconnex or other platforms (BAS, EMIS, etc)​

an aim solution can:

  • Collect, store and report on all of their meter and sensor data in one location; either QMC’s Meterconnex platform or on other energy management software
  • Reduce costs by utilizing existing meters and communications infrastructure
  • Connect to all of their meters through a combination of wired and wireless communications equipment and open-protocols
  • Attain accurate meter data, through the supply of high-quality meters and commissioning all new and existing meters
  • Standardize their meter reporting of all utilities: electricity, water, gas, steam and thermal energy (BTU)
  • Reduce energy and water use by setting alarms, targets, leak detection and automating building energy reports to operators’ email
  • Simplify their meter system project, since QMC can act as a turn-key general contractor or as a solutions provider to the property’s preferred contractor

advanced institutional metering Projects

Here are projects we’ve worked on recently to provide integrated metering to campuses, bases, and institutions across Canada.

Humber College - Toronto

Humber College wanted to isolate and monitor energy use on their two campuses, in order to better track and target energy efficiency across 47 buildings.

QMC acted as the general contractor and supplied, installed, commissioned and project managed a multi-utility metering system deployment

National Defense
HQ - Ottawa

QMC designed, supplied and commissioned a multi-utility metering system with temperature and pressure sensors to allow for advanced energy management.

The meters and sensors operate with open-protocol, non-proprietary data loggers by QMC, allowing for seamless flow of meter data to the BAS.

Canadian Forces Base Trenton

CFB Trenton -
Quinte West

QMC supplied, commissioned and integrated a multi-utility metering system to isolate the energy use of 60 separate buildings within the base.

All meters connect to data acquisition devices which allow easy data collection by fault detection software and web-based energy management software

Laurentian University - Sudbury

Project Underway.

QMC was recently awarded the RFP for an advanced submetering system at Laurentian University in Sudbury.

QMC will be deploying electrical, gas, thermal and water meters to isolate utility use of 19 buildings. All metered data is being integrated into the BAS.
