Santa Clara, CA (PRWEB) June 8, 2008
GridLogix was presented the Building Connectivity Implementation Award at ConnectivityWeek for its comprehensive and unprecedented energy and utility metering of the Battery Wharf properties.
ConnectivityWeek hosted the 5th annual Buildy Awards, attracting an impressive gathering of Intelligent Building, Access Control, HVAC, Lighting, IT, Green Buildings, Intelligent Home, Industrial solution and power grid experts. During the four-day event, attendees selected the seven Buildy award winners from finalists who represent organizations and individuals who have stepped up to the challenge of integrating systems into the entire scheme of connectivity.
This project, located in Boston's Historic North End, conceived and developed by Harold Theran Development Management Corporation, includes condos, retail, and a grand hotel. Designed to blend North End's historic roots and emerging vitality, it does so in a stunning 4 building complex providing a responsible and refreshing new packaging of services.
The buildings are supplied hot, chilled and domestic water by a Central Utility Plant and its electrical, natural gas, and utilities are recorded and monitored by Gridlogix over a fiber backbone shared with voice, video and data. Every aspect of these services are metered and analyzed to provide maximum occupant comfort, efficiency, and sustainability.
"This is a model project" said Gridlogix CEO Hal Gentry, "we are proud to work with the patriots at Battery Wharf to prove that building connectivity of this magnitude represents liberation from financial, energy, and environmental waste. Every step is both measurable and achievable."
The Gridlogix Information Management for Sustainability platform was installed as an integral part of the IT backbone of the Battery Wharf project. Gridlogix receives data from all energy and water systems and merges it with customer property management and work order software. It aggregates, dissects, and displays this data on dashboards for building managers working to maintain optimum building conditions. This high level overview provides the transparency and accountability to keep all personnel focused on executing strategy, saving money, providing comfort and reducing costly environmental impact.
The Gridlogix applications provide information 24/7 by monitoring over 10,000 data points via the fiber backbone, applying business rules for the management of the data and providing Battery Wharf management the information they need to make informed decisions proactively instead of reactively.
