Broadgate Estates have experience in using the disparate technologies within a building to reduce consumption and deliver occupier bills but current solutions were not integrated or automated sufficiently in their opinion or there was a commercial bind between the software platform and a specific brand of hardware.
Broadgate Estates initiated a market test to identify potential partners based on their ability to deliver a technology independent software platform coupled with the capability to integrate the disparate data streams from the technologies that were installed within the estate and selected Next Controls.
Carlo Gavazzi were selected to deliver the hardware components as the energy data accuracy, purity and resilience that their products provide is essential to the intelligent apportionment of occupiers in multi tenanted buildings or estates. The Next Controls platform has been installed within the London Bridge City estate including Hays Galleria, Cottons Centre, No 1 London Bridge City and is currently being installed in 2 & 6 More London.
Aside from providing visibility of the energy usage throughout the estate to both Broadgate Estates and the occupiers, the platform is used to review the performance of the HVAC plant and ensure that it is consistently operating on an optimal basis.
