Sustainable Solutions at Walbrook Building
Distech Controls, an innovation leader in
energy management solutions, has supplied its ECL-PTU Series of
LonWorks programmable controllers for Walbrook Building in London, to
help control the fourth floor’s air conditioning and lighting system,
and keep energy costs as low as possible in line with the building’s
BREEAM rating of ‘Excellent’.
From the initial stages of the design process, the environmental impact of The Walbrook Building has been a key consideration. The location of the building meant that the design had to meet guidelines, preserving the many protected views afforded by the area with its frontage along Cannon Street, St. Swithin's Lane and part of Walbrook. Camberley based installer, ADG Systems, worked on the project with the aim of creating an efficient and energy saving control system for the air conditioning and DALI lighting system for this London landmark.
The fourth floor of the Walbrook Building is occupied by Vanguard, an asset management company based in the US. The Distech Controls system is separated on a core by core basis and monitored from America by the Vanguard services managers. This allows Vanguard to have control over the temperature and lighting in any of its offices across the globe.
Distech Controls’ ECL-PTU controller is an advanced, energy-saving option for addressing any terminal control application, offering Walbrook greater flexibility and lowering fuel costs. The simple design and installation of the controller makes it ideal for multi-application systems such as the one at Walbrook. Used alongside Distech Controls’ mini EC-Multi-Sensors for presence detection and lux level detection, its occupancy-based control strategies and daylight harvesting provide a straightforward and affordable control option, capable of dramatically cutting energy consumption.
The Walbrook Building has achieved a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating. Its CO2 emissions are 38% less than the Building Regulations Part L 2006 target emission rate and the CO2 reductions from Renewable Energy & Efficiency measures will be 14%, 4% more than the GLA London Plan target.
Being able to control the air conditioning and lighting from Distech Controls’ ECL-PTU controllers creates an energy efficient solution in keeping with all aspects of the buildings green development. Reliable and easy to use systems are paramount for these large multi-use buildings in London, and Distech Controls provides the ideal solution.
