Project Summary

the-cube

This project was carried out with 75% of the building tenanted. Controls were upgraded floor by floor until equipment in the roof-top plantroom was strategically replaced. Systems included all fan and pump motors replaced and controlled by new VSDs, new chiller and boilers.

The BMS controls all VSDs via HLI which means the BMS is able to access a wide range of information directly from the VSD over a single cable. Energy monitoring in the building is handled by the BMS and includes electrical meters and gas metering.
