Bank of the WestFargo, ND, United States
The project was a retrofit of an office tower occupied by Bank of the West, a financial services company. Built in 1973, the building features a glass facade, and is 10 stories above ground.
Bank of the West was looking to achieve control over their system from one location and to be able to view a graphics display of all of their equipment in operation. They also wanted trending and alarming reports. The EC-NetAX web-based building management platform was used to achieve multi-site integration and for the ability to integrate with existing control and terminal equipment. ECB BACnet Series controllers were used for HVAC control.
By using the reports and display graphics, the staff at Bank of the West can control their energy use by tracking data and adjusting values where needed so as to make the entire building more energy efficient, and increase comfort levels of the multiple office areas.
