Reliable Controls Headquarters Annex Gains LEED Points
Uses BACnet to Operate With 50% Less Energy
Atlanta, GA (PRWeb) – July 2, 2014 – The Reliable Controls Headquarters Annex is the most recent success story to provide inspiration to the BACnet community. Reliable Controls, a BACnet International Gold Member designed their headquarters to be a naturally ventilated LEED Platinum targeted facility that operates using 50% less energy than the ASHRAE 90.1(1999) standard.
Within the facility BACnet integration of the HVAC, lighting, and security systems allows occupied comfort settings to be enabled on a per occupant basis, triggered by unique security cards. Individual control of temperature, light, blinds, and occupancy is provided via LAN or wireless access from any computer or mobile device.
“The adoption of BACnet provides users with the capabilities to reduce energy costs within their facilities,” said Andy McMillan, President and Managing Director of BACnet International. “The Reliable Controls Headquarters Annex is an example of the success that can be found when an organization commits themselves to the implementation of BACnet.”
