Assignment/Solution

On an ongoing basis, everyone involved can now log onto an online platform: to see what is going on in the building, checking temperatures and confirming what plant is operational at any time. This is shortening lines of communication and making it easier for the team to address issues quickly. The building team has greater visibility of how the building is operating, so they can proactively manage the indoor environment, controlling the connected HVAC systems with a longer-term view rather than knee jerk reactions to immediate climate variations.

Results

In addition to enabling energy and carbon savings, the pilot project has already identified opportunities to improve the working environment for occupiers, connecting various building systems so they work collaboratively together and making greater use of the building’s thermal storage capability.
