Aviva

Energy optimisation ahead of its time

Client:
Aviva
Building:
7,500 sq.m office

This was the first project to be deployed with Symphony’s BEMS and smartphone controls system. Ahead of its time, it delivered deep energy savings and was a Finalist for the 2011 SEAI Energy Awards.

Assessment & Diagnosis

Symphony’s chartered engineers undertook a holistic assessment of the HVAC systems and the building’s physics to diagnose an energy optimisation for this AVIVA (formerly Friends First) building.

A detailed assessment of the pre-existing BMS system was subsequently undertaken. This was then integrated over BACnet with a new BEMS system onto which Symphony applied its optimisation algorithms. The user interface for this was then brought out onto Symphony’s smartphone app.

A Cost-Efficient Solution

Rather than incurring the retrofit costs for new condensing boilers, operation of the pre-existing boilers was rationalised to extract notable savings. The building was also appraised for CO2 monitoring. This in turn was integrated into the BEMS and used to optimise the ventilation system.

A free cooling solution was deployed as the lead/assist means of cooling the building's comms room. It was incorporated into the BEMS for integrated control.


In addition to the substantial energy savings yielded, the smartphone app and its inbuilt alerts became a useful system monitoring and management tool for the building’s facilities manager.
