The Bullitt Center Implements BACnet Technology In New Building
BACnet Controllers Contribute to the World’s Greenest Building
Atlanta, GA (PRWeb) – July 19, 2013 – Another success story is now available to serve as inspiration to the BACnet community. BACnet International Gold Member KMC Controls and Seattle, Washington based environmental conservation foundation, The Bullitt Foundation, completed construction of The Bullitt Foundation’s 50,000 square foot office building in early 2013. The new office building, billed as the world’s “greenest” and most energy efficient office building, is the first office building in the United States to meet the requirements of the International Living Building Challenge.
At the Bullitt Center, KMC’s BACnet Building Controllers and FlexStats are used for control of radiant floor heating and cooling zones, as well as for indoor air quality management and to provide free cooling. Devices are also in place to control rainwater collection, filtration, and purification into potable water from a 56,000-gallon underground cistern, grey water collection, control, pumping, and distribution to the building’s green garden area.
“BACnet International is focused on facilitating BACnet adoption and user successes,” states Andy McMillan, President of BACnet International. “To see BACnet adopted in such a one-of-a-kind and energy conscious building is exciting and will encourage other organizations to follow suit.”
