Distech Controls Case Study
Hilton San Diego Bayfront San Diego, CA, United
States of America
Rising 30-stories above San Diego Bay, the Hilton San Diego Bayfront hotel opened in 2008 as California’s newest waterfront skyscraper hotel. The property, with its spectacular terrace over the Bay and its sun-drenched interiors, exemplifies the best of post-modern architecture and state-of-the-art engineering technologies.
Just minutes from the airport, adjacent to the San Diego Convention centre, the hotel has 1190 guest rooms, 30 luxury suites and 165,000 square feet of meeting space. It is unquestionably one of the most comfortable hotel environments on the West Coast, due in part to its innovative Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) and Building Automation System (BAS).
Right from the planning stage, the developer placed top priority on energy efficiency coupled with guest comfort. Moreover, the hotel had to be built for long-term sustainability with technologies that could be easily and cost effectively upgraded as needed.
High on the List of Priorities
Since the Hilton San Diego Bayfront project was green field construction, the building automation system had to meet very stringent and specific criteria. Distech Controls’ Systems Integrator, Dynalectric San Diego, supplied a complete spectrum of BAS services, including Distech Controls products based on the developer’s priorities. Distech Controls was selected on the basis of:
An Open System: Best-in-class industry standards based on LONWORKS® technology;
Continuous Source of System Components: Original hardware and software from the manufacturer had to be consistently available, and later versions had to be compatible;
Easy Integration and Future Enhancements: BAS had to allow for the seamless integration of additional components. Furthermore, the system had to provide the ability to easily leverage future technology improvements.
