Spectral has been involved in several monitoring and dynamic control projects in various office buildings. This pilot collaboration between Boat&Co, Bouwinvest, and Spectral is the first hotel building from the Bouwinvest portfolio designated for dynamic control. Some main objectives identified by the stakeholders encompassed the following: demonstrated reduction in heating costs and energy consumption, improvement of guest comfort experience, and meeting Paris Climate Treaty requirements of 10% via the dynamic control system.
As is the nature of pilot projects, all stakeholders are working closely together to achieve the goals set. Spectral initially works with Boat&Co’s installations and sensors to study and investigate. Once the hotel is mapped, a monitoring dashboard is created to fine-tune the parameters of the building management system. Once the control strategy is developed, the advanced control strategy is implemented and the savings are evaluated.
