Helping REDICO Improve Equipment Performance Through Real-time Data and Visibility
Industry: Commercial Property/Real Estate
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.
"I was under the impression that our building equipment was following the floor schedules. Resolute provided visibility into how the equipment was actually operating, allowing us to quickly make changes to improve performance."
Lead Engineer, Facility Services
Implementation of a cloud-based software solution delivering real-time data and insights into the performance, efficiency and improvement of building equipment and operations.
Programming of terminal units to follow floor schedules, reducing the fan powered box operation while maintaining unoccupied temperature set-points.
Retuning of the cooling tower fan VFDs, improving set-point control and reducing starts and stops.
The ability for the One Kennedy Square team to see how they compare to other buildings in the REDICO portfolio.
REDICO manages a portfolio of buildings in various regions across the US. Located in Detroit’s Central Business District, One Kennedy Square is a 250,000 sf., 10-floor multi-tenant office building. It contains 9,000 sf. of premier retail space with an underground parking structure. Winner of the prestigious BOMA Office Building of the Year (TOBY) Award, REDICO also received the National Real Estate A-LIST Award for Service Excellence.
