Savills, the building management company for Exchequer Court, asked BGES Group to replace the building’s existing AX controllers with state-of-the-art Tridium N4 Jaces and IO. A preventative upgrade, the aim was to futureproof the BMS, reduce the maintenance burden and improve environmental conditions for occupants.
BGES Group supplied, installed and migrated the software from AX to N4 and upgraded all the graphics to match the new Savills standard. We also implemented tagging and hierarchies on the points structure so the system could be easily searched and filtered. The project also included the installation of a full fibre optic and Cat6 infrastructure and hardware to support the new building management system, including remote access via a firewall supplied by BGES.
Exchequer Court is a busy office building, so it was important to keep the building’s existing services operational while we worked. Most of our work was carried out behind the scenes, and when we needed to enter tenant areas, we undertook the work out of hours or at weekends.
Savills chose to work with BGES on this project due to our proven track record of delivering high-end work on their behalf.
Following the upgrade to state-of-the-art building controls, the building delivers enhanced comfort to occupants and improved environmental control. Importantly, the system is fit for the future, greatly reducing the risk of faults and downtime, which will yield maintenance savings over time.
On completion of the project at Exchequer Court BGES has been awarded the ongoing service contract for the site.
“We wanted to gain more precise control of the building management system at Exchequer Court, with the goal of improving occupant comfort conditions and streamlining the maintenance process. Thanks to BGES Group we now have a state-of-the-art control system, which is much more user-friendly and can be accessed remotely. Simon and his team are highly knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. They also went out of their way to ensure minimal disruption to tenants during the installation process.”
