Project Summary

Slider-3-1.jpg

This project consisted of thirteen high security state of the art residential, education & training, recreation, administration and other support facilities enclosed by a secure perimeter. The mechanical services in this unique project consisted of heating and chilled water plan, in-slab heating and VRV.
The BMS system is controlled via a central head end residing in the administration building. IES successfully delivered the project and continues to undertake the maintenance.

Project Summary

Slider-3.jpg

This project included not only the innovative 5 Star NABERS Energy rated office building construction but also an integrated fit-out. Mechanical systems include chilled and heating water systems utilizing water cooled chillers and gas fired boilers. Air systems include AHUs, FCUs, general ventilation systems and carpark ventilation and air quality monitoring system.

Using a High Level Interface the BMS communicates with chillers, VRF air conditioning system and Variable Speed Drives controlling pumps and fans. Remote monitoring of the BMS is possible via an ADSL connection using a web interface.

One Farrell Place

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.
