Smart Building Story: Bank of America Plaza Atlanta — Atlanta’s Architectural Masterpiece

This ControlTrends’ Smart Building Story takes an in-depth look at the Bank of America Plaza Atlanta — Atlanta’s Architectural Masterpiece and the remarkable open systems success delivered by the Stromquist Company and John Smith, Honeywell WEBs-AX Systems Integrator with Mallory & Evans Service. Parkway Realty’s Alan Winfrey explains the course of action taken and the reason why they chose Honeywell when their existing controls system reached its end-of-life and needed the best open-systems upgrade available — one that offered the owners and tenants the greatest value and most flexible solution. The massive first phase, which integrated the base building functions: chiller plant, cooling towers, and occupied floor space with 400 VAV boxes, is complete, and now Alan’s department monitors and optimizes the building system performance — and anticipate problems using data-rich dashboards. Parkway Realty, who has recently won Atlanta’s E3 Award for water-saving initiatives, actively shares building energy and water consumption information with their tenants to modify behavior and help tenants understand how important they are in energy and water conservation.
