Substituting standard lighting for LED alternatives will result in budget and energy savings but installing a BMS to actively manage all of your energy consumption provides a better, smarter solution. Achieving a sustainable energy efficiency life-cycle in older or heritage buildings provides unique challenges. Many of these older buildings are of non-standard construction, employ little or less effective insulation, and frequently have no BMS installed. An added challenge with these Retrofit HVAC projects is the requirement for the occupying business to remain in place while works commence. Project planning is key, with phased works being discussed and agreed in detail with the client and occupant. Designs must work in real time with the building’s integral design and infrastructure and occupancy profile. Installation of peripheral field devices, controllers and control panels are all factored around the building and its’ current occupants. Design of the system’s graphic interface is agreed with the client and commissioning of the new system carefully scheduled and witnessed on site. Once complete, the renewed sensitively installed BMS will improve the operation of the building.
Located in London’s Canary Wharf, 10 Upper Bank Street is a landmark tower building. In February 2016, SCI started design work on the Deutsche Bank offices, which cover 12 floors of the building. This large project included the schematic design and manufacture of 52 BMS control panels. Responsible for the design, installation and commissioning of the BMS including FAT VAV Air conditioning, SCI completed the onsite works in a year, with handover and end-user training complete in July 2017.
