In office buildings, the control of variables such as temperature, humidity, indoor air quality and the intensity and colour of light play a fundamental role in the comfort of the occupants.
The monitoring and remote management of building systems through connectivity and intelligent automation has become an essential part of the evolution of buildings in this century and offers innovative solutions that benefit both companies and their workers as well as the environment.
Savener has just completed the study and execution project for the improvement of energy efficiency in all non-productive areas (offices, rest areas and technical rooms) of the Airbus factory in Tablada, focusing the study on the implementation of a control system that improves the remote management of the air conditioning and lighting systems, as well as the integration of the same in the current BMS of the plant.
Monitoring and remote management through the BMS will allow these spaces to adjust the operating hours of the lighting and air conditioning systems according to occupancy and environmental conditions in real time, resulting in less energy waste and lower operating costs. According to the analyses carried out during the development of this study, it is estimated that it is possible to achieve savings of up to 40% in energy consumption in these areas compared to their current state.
By monitoring the parameters of indoor air quality, temperature, humidity and light levels, it will be possible to adjust the operation of air conditioning and lighting individually in each area of a building. This will enable occupants to enjoy a more comfortable and personalised environment.
The BMS will allow maintenance managers to monitor and respond to problems in real time. For example, if a malfunction is detected in an HVAC system, action can be taken immediately, avoiding disruptions in operation and inconvenience to occupants.
