Helping REDICO Improve Equipment Performance Through Real-time Data and Visibility
Built in 2006, One Kennedy Square is a relatively newer building with an open, BACnet, Tridium-based building management system. Despite winning BOMA and Energy Star awards (Energy Star Score of 82), the team at One Kennedy Square knew they could achieve even greater levels of efficiency if they had better visibility into operations and the ability to collect, trend and analyze key BAS and utility data.
Resolute implemented its cloud-based software solution, enabling REDICO to receive fault detection, advanced analytics and the ability to collect, trend and analyze electric, natural gas, and water utility data and existing BAS data to drive operational efficiencies.
Installed building-level electric, natural gas, and water meters, and electric submeters
on HVAC equipment to establish an industry-accepted, weather adjusted baseline by which savings can be accurately measured.
Identified terminal units (FPB’s and VAV’s) on many floors that were thought to have been included on the floor schedules but were never tied in.
Discovered that the cooling tower fans, fitted with variable frequency drives, were short cycling. Data indicated that the fans immediately reached 100% speed when turned on then would turn off to maintain set-point.
"The Resolute solution is critical in helping us understand the impact changes have on our systems and equipment and the ability to quickly find and fix issues."
