Building management

varied solutions for your technical facility management

"Every feature in our buildings should be energy-saving and cost-efficient." - Users operating functional buildings benefit especially from technical facility management systems created by our B-CON software. They appreciate the comprehensive functions for efficient building operation and the great flexibility of ICONAG systems that were developed in many thousands of projects. For good reason, operators of a wide range of different building types rely on B-CON for technical facility management, e.g. in

The integration of different applications is the key for successful technical facility management. B-CON is a simple way of aggregating all applications in one system. All relevant functions in a building, such as HVAC and refrigeration technology, as well as electrical and security systems become accessible in a single system environment for higher-level management functions.

Innovations from ICONAG have won numerous awards, including
