Custom Building Integration - Case Study

Energy ETC was hired to integrate the building controls (HVAC) for a five building campus of multi-tenant buildings in the San Francisco Bay area. The property management group needed to be able to manage the facilities from offsite locations around the clock, and wished they could provide their tenants with fee based afterhours air conditioning.
The existing building management system (BMS) had been plagued by repeated failures of the onsite server and was requiring increased levels of service and associated costs.
The customer had very specific requirements for this project:

1) Secure web based graphical interface via the Internet.
2) Tenant afterhours override capability, tracking, and invoicing.
3) Stable and sustainable hardware design.
4) Expandable to support automated demand response and demand limiting.
5) Cost effective solution.

Energy ETC used their experience as Smart Building System Integrators to exceed the customer's expectations on all project requirements. We combined hardware and software products from The S4 Group, ASI Controls, and Energy ETC to make this project a success.
