Optimization in terms of functionality, comfort and people’s safety, while also ensuring cost minimization may imply automation, including building automation, which can be achieved using Building Management System (BMS). This emerging area is yet to be explored and analyzed, with various approaches in practice, yet little scientific analyses available, especially in terms of system architecture. Based on most frequent functions encountered in office buildings from Romania, we propose a minimal web-based architecture for BMS using modular approach, which enables fast exchange of information among its various components and centralized surveillance of subsystems through minimal human operator intervention. The architecture proposed may be further developed so as to include additional functions in the respective type of building, moreover, such architecture may also be considered for use in buildings with other destinations, taking into account all the characteristics of each building.
