In October 2008 BMSI was acquired by British Gas Business. This was a huge initiative to help businesses reduce energy costs, comply with new energy legislation and achieve environmental responsibility targets. BMSI had established itself as one of the leading controls specialists in the UK, providing national coverage for multi-site clients, such as the University of Brighton, via a network of regional offices.

The University of Brighton is spread over five campuses that include sports facilities, halls of residence, administrative offices and faculty buildings. So a well-managed buildings controls system is essential. In 1999, it became clear to the university management team that the existing system was no longer able to provide sufficient energy management and cost reductions.
