In partnership with NG Bailey, AIS BMS is supporting a ground-breaking energy reduction pilot across six prestigious London buildings owned by Land Securities. The project targets a 15% reduction in energy consumption compared to a 2014 baseline.
The first of the Land Securities buildings to be used as a pilot is Dashwood House.
Our challenge in Dashwood House was based around the ventilation system controls, to reduce consumption, yet whilst retaining fresh air level requirements within the building.
By changing the way the building controlled the internal air quality by supplying fresh air in the office spaces based upon occupancy significantly reduced energy consumption.
The modulation of the AHU based on the air-quality sensor readings reduced the AHU fan motor load by 30% during the operational hours with additional savings on chilled water and LTHW demand on the cooling and heating systems.
This pilot was recently recognised by the Building Controls Industry Association (BCIA) and was shortlisted as a finalist in this year’s BCIA Awards in the energy management category.
