C17 Heavy Lift Facilities – RAAF Amberley
This project, comprising four major buildings, was completed in April 2009. The works included the supply and installation of a new ALC WebCTRL Building Management System comprising VAV (variable air volume) and main plant controllers.
The BMS controls and monitors all HVAC systems including energy recovery units and DX plant (direct expansion as opposed to a programmable logic controller or PLC application), lighting, services metering and high level communications to the SIM CRAC unit.
The BMS is connected to the Defence DESN for communication of data to the Site Wide BMS utilising fully open BACnet protocol accessible from anywhere within the IT infrastructure. Data is passed between the local server and site wide BMS server including ambient data, scheduling, alarms, emergency action notifications and graphical display parameters.
Service and maintenance is provided by others with telephone support and intermittent site attendance by Systemax.
