When you want a good contractor, you need intelli-building.

Bob Pauli is the original founder and leader of intelli-building. Under his guidance the company adopted a philosophy of only installing systems that are open to be serviced by others, thereby not locking end users into a sole source for maintenance and upgrades. We give customers the credentials and the software tools required to operate their system, independent of our involvement after the install. This philosophy helps intelli-building gain trust amongst our customers and gives our contractor partners a tool they can use to negotiate projects. This industry leading approach is preferred by end users who are looking for an open software platform to create their building automation system.

Today our executive team has a combined 60 years of experience, and we’ve serviced buildings throughout Chicago and Indianapolis for over a decade.

But we won’t stop there. Because you need more than that. You not only want the reassurance that we know what we’re doing, but you want to know you’re going to get the BEST controls in your building.

We’re not here to sell control systems.
We’re here to solve your control issues
and find the system that works best
for your building.

And when you hire us, you’re getting the full team – call us any time, and we’ll be here to help. From the first inquiry, through commissioning, to preventive maintenance.

Technologies around
building controls
are constantly developing.

And we’re focused on giving you the most cutting-edge solutions to make your lives, and the lives of your tenants, easier. That’s what truly sets us apart – we’re not a service provider. We’re a customer service company.

If you’re looking for controls for a new build, or a remodel, we’re your team. New construction and sophisticated retrofits for iconic buildings are our specialties – no matter how historic or complex the structure, we’ll provide a top-notch control system.

The Team

Greg Moy


Greg is in charge of bringing new technologies into the intelli-building arsenal. He ensures every new product passes the bar for effectiveness and efficiency. With an eagle eye for quality assurance, he also helps ensure our control sequences are error-free, and trains and manages programmers and front-end specialists. Training building operators is an important phase of our projects, and Greg often takes the lead there as well.

He’s spent a decade as a HVAC temperature controls system specialist after studying Mechanical Engineering at Michigan State University.

Rick Freund


Rick is responsible for managing the engineering team while overseeing project implementation. With an eye to the future, and an emphasis on client experience, he designs control systems and creates sequences that allow the equipment to function as efficiently as possible. He works with the programmers and technicians to get the projects done right.

Rick has been in the industry for nearly three decades, during which he’s worked on everything from small commercial rooftop units to large chilled water and hot water plants. He is an expert in hydronic design and has also been certified in test and balance. With his extensive knowledge of mechanical equipment, he can understand the optimal control strategies needed to operate equipment effectively. Rick applies this comprehension especially on large retrofit projects where only experience can be used to complete the project at hand.

Tom Franzo


Tom Franzo is often our clients’ first introduction to the intelli-building team, as he runs our business development, sales, and overall company operations. Passionate about delivering quality solutions on time and on budget, Tom’s interaction with clients doesn’t stop once the contracts are signed – rather, he personally delivers customer support and accountability throughout the project.
