When looking to extend its success with its legacy control system, the New York City Housing Authority started with open BACnet communication as the center of its new BMS architecture, leveraging its fiber connectivity between campus buildings and including advanced graphics, alarms, exception reporting, and data analytics. Including these features has required NYCHA to work across its enterprise, from Operations/Maintenance to Capital Projects and IT, as well as with its business partners and consultants, to bring all the pieces together. This session will discuss strategies used and challenges faced in the project, as well as the impact on various stakeholders.
- Describe how building management controls and dashboards are used in energy management
- Analyze the key parts of a building management system and what “open” controls means in a BMS context
- Determine how and which stakeholders play various roles in the implementation and long term success of an integrated BMS system
- Identify challenges with integrating with existing equipment and infrastructure, and pathways for resolution
