Put more power in your hands

Embrace a greener future for your premises

Smart offices and the Internet of Things (IoT) have made building management more complex.

But they’ve also put more power in your hands– to manage costs, improve sustainability, and future-proof your business.

With our consultancy-led approach, decades of experience, and relationships with hardware and software providers, we’ll bring your organisation right up to the cutting edge of building management.

Putting the planet first

Sustainability is the core concept of every project we manage. We’ll take your premises to the forefront of environmental friendliness.

Commercially collaborative

We bring cross-divisional expertise to the table, drawing on every department to make sure your building management is as rigorous, sustainable, and efficient as possible.

Interconnected technology

Powering real-time decisions

Every workplace is different, and what you need today might be different to tomorrow.

Our BMS systems encompass your entire building needs, including HVAC, lighting, water, security, safety, energy, and air quality.

We work collaboratively with you to retrofit or design new solutions, based precisely on the needs of your business, and we’ll stay by your side with maintenance and support.

Five common challenges of building management systems (BMS):


There are hundreds of different technologies in building management. We can walk you through the most suitable for you and implement the best options.


A high degree of technical know-how is required to design the right BMS setup for a premises. The same goes for its implementation, management, and maintenance once in-situ.


These projects are typically large and expensive. Partnering with an expert, who knows the market and has the right relationships, can help find the best value.


The interconnectivity of BMS means it can take a long time to understand and a sharp challenge to manage. Tying the right tech together is key.

Sustainability & regulations

Managing environmental impact is one of the chief charges of BMS, and regulations are becoming more stringent. Navigating these landscapes properly will help you do right by the law and the planet.

Commercial deliver. We are fortunate to work with some amazing partners. Here are some examples of great things we hear every day.

The new Walsall Housing Group office is a fantastic, fresh and modern workplace thanks to the wonderful work of the Commercial interiors team. They created a steering group to work alongside us to understand our demands and held regular meetings during the design process to keep us informed of the progress. Our desire was for a more collaborative space, with meeting booths and one-to-one seating, rather than traditional desks – and they delivered a fantastic final fit-out over the full four-floor building.
Each year, Commercial supplies accessory packs to graduate trainees at a leading accountancy firm, which are then picked, packed, and delivered to their home addresses by the Commercial Foundation. This not only guarantees that every new employee has the necessary equipment to be productive from their first day but also allows their IT team to focus on other responsibilities. Collaborating with the Commercial Foundation generates substantial social value returns on investment for the firm and contributes to improving the lives of the Foundation's volunteers.
Wollens have enjoyed a long-standing and fruitful partnership with Commercial because they are always introducing innovations and improvements to our IT environment. As the threat of cyber-attacks increases it was vital that we strengthened our capabilities for dealing with a ransomware attack with a cloud-based backup solution. Our solution means data cannot be altered or deleted, giving us a crucial way of recovering data to minimise any potential downtime and financial losses
Working with Commercial for our branded materials has proved to be effective and collaborative. The team is efficient and they listen to requests for improvements. Commercial has made branded goods simple.
As E-commerce in retail continues to grow, Commercial’s stock-management and fulfilment expertise has allowed a leading UK retailer to free huge amounts of warehouse space. Commercial took on the stocking of our employee uniform, transferring to a new supplier with the management of the supply being consolidated into their existing supply accounts. Not only did this free vital space in their distribution centre, the consolidated supply of all GNFR delivered significant delivery cost savings.
At JoJo Maman Bébé we are happy to work with the Commercial Foundation and support inspiring work they do to help disadvantaged young adults. Like us, the Foundation are a B Corp certified organisation that is proven to put purpose ahead of profits. We have enjoyed working with their volunteers to help with a mug-making activity. We are now working alongside them to create an introduction gift for our new employees, these include printed mugs, pens and notebooks.
