  A dramatic curved glass building situated between Mayfair and Oxford Street mixing 8 levels of offices with boutique retail and exclusive residence.  Behind the scenes lie state-of-art building management systems deploying one common converged network for all systems to exchange data and harvest intelligently for energy-efficient lighting, heat/cooling and general building management, all compiled in one simple to manage 'dashboard'. Converged Networks Strategy deployed means multiple systems CCTV, Access Control, Power Metering BMS and others use ONE common network as oppose to multiple individual networks. The cabling alone reduces around 30% in raw material cost. Flood wiring with IP ports around the building makes it future proof in the sense that any system with an IP connection can utilise that foundation network no matter what future system the client wish to upgrade to.
  Data exchange capability is a smart move to save large amounts of energy by utilising the occupancy data made available from the Simmtronic Lighting Control System so that the appropriate setting for the heating/cooling system can be offered based on demand for optimum use. Status of any faults by zone are also offered through industry preferred BACNET IP from the Simmtronic Lighting Control system. All of these made easier through the clever use of Simmtronic's CAD conversion system. The designer simply draws the polygon in CAD over the building layout to define each zone and its status of the lights are summarised for each of these zones. This makes the production of the summary screens, sometimes known as "dashboards" much easier to create and meet the "traffic light" colour scheme requirement of Land Securities so that the health of each zone can easily be understood by staff of varying skill level thus potentially maximising the effectiveness of various building management staff. All the essential occupancy control and daylight-linked dimming as required by Part L approved document are applied with DALI dimmable luminaires. Also since the lighting control system already comes with the automatic emergency lighting test as a simple bolt-on, the addition of professional commissioning procedures from Simmtronic made this addition an easy choice.
