The building ambient conditions are
controlled and monitored via an Invensys Building Management System
(BMS) which are advanced energy and cost efficient air conditioning
control systems complete with an extensive back-up power system.
Various controls panels, located on the
7th and 43rd floor of the building, house starter and control equipment
for the fan motors, pump motors, and air handling units. A bespoke
electric heater battery thyristor controller was developed specifically
for this project. Six 400 kilowatt thyristor controllers were produced
for the application. This equipment is controlled and monitored by the
BMS. A combination of Form 2 and Form 4 panels were used.
Additional smoke fan and pressurisation
fan control panels are strategically located on various floors
throughout the tower and controlled via the Cerberus fire alarm system.
Specialist plant and car park supply
and extract fan control panels are located within the basement levels.
A sophisticated lift system provides
rapid transit to the 39 office floors with three transfer floors
allowing easy movement between lift groups.
