Moreton Bay Regional Council (MBRC)
MBRC originally engaged Systemax to replace the incumbent BMS systems at the Redcliffe Council site for the Administration Building, Cultural Centre and Library. This original installation has now extended to 13 separate sites all integrated onto a single system utilising the IT infrastructure.
Energy consumption is monitored and utilised in control algorithms to ensure plant operates to provide the best level of comfort while using a minimum of energy.
The new control strategies and tuning regimes are forecast to produce an annual electrical energy cost savings in excess of $130,000.
At the Cultural Centre scheduling of plant and equipment via the BMS is synchronised with the council’s event booking system via high level interface over the council’s IT infrastructure.
A central Web based server residing on the MBRC WAN provides control and monitoring of the three buildings and offers unlimited system expansion to meet the Councils ongoing requirements.
Systemax remotely supports local contractors, council staff and the BMS via Web based access.
