ABB Manufacturing Facility Undergoes a Renovation and Expansion

BACnet Contributes to The Intelligent and Flexible Building


Atlanta, GA (PRWeb) – June 30, 2014–Another success story is now available to serve as inspiration to the BACnet community. The 147,000 square-foot New Berlin, WI manufacturing facility of BACnet International Silver Member ABB underwent a major renovation and expansion in the spring of 2014.

The existing design of the facility’s HVAC system dated back over 30 years. There was no central plant or building automation system (BAS) and most control was independent. Monitoring, maintenance, and troubleshooting were all done the old fashioned way. In order to deal with this and the many other challenges that come with an aging system, ABB sought to design a highly intelligent and flexible building. BACnet communications played a critical role in both monitoring and control of the new system with nearly every device in the HVAC system communicating via BACnet.

“It is exciting to see BACnet adopted and implemented to make existing manufacturing facilities smarter and more efficient,” stated Andy McMillan, President and Managing Director of BACnet International. “BACnet has great potential for successful implementation in similar manufacturing environments.”

BACnet International has nearly 60 Success Stories – case studies that feature successful implementation of BACnet. To read the full Story on the offices of Berry Architecture + Associates, please click here. To see all BACnet International Success Stories, please click here.
