Principal Tower BMS Installation

Smart Facilities, Supplier News, United Kingdom

Schneider Electric has been selected to supply the building management system at Principal Tower, a 175 metre apartment block on Brookfield's mixed-use Principal Place development in the London Borough of Hackney.

Designed by Foster & Partners, the new residential building is pioneering hotel-style living in Britain's capital, with its developer also showcasing the latest in energy efficiency by installing a combined heat and power plant and roof-mounted photovoltaic panels.


Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure™ Building Operation BMS solution was selected to optimise delivery of building operations and services. The system plays a pivotal role in reducing energy consumption and expenditure, whilst enabling operators to drive greater cost savings through a better understanding of energy, through a single platform. It integrates with smart home technology to meet the needs of owners, operators, and occupants.


Crucially, the software solution gives the Principal Place team the ability to work with multiple systems and have real-time insight into operations, displaying data on a single dashboard. The ability to have visibility of all building issues prior to any reactive, emergency events or tenant complaints enabled the team to provide the level of service required.


Daniel Jordaan, General Manager at Principal Place Residential, explains: "The EcoStruxure architecture is able to log, monitor and predict trends in energy consumption, ultimately allowing us to meet green initiatives and be environmentally friendly. It keeps costs down, energy down, and provides the perfect, customisable environment for occupants – it’s as simple as that."


Westley Thurley, Digital Buildings Sales Director at Schneider Electric, adds: "The platform provides building managers with visibility into operations and empowers them to intervene effectively to drive improvements and efficiencies. With new technology constantly being developed and implemented, the system will enable owners, operators and occupants to be as efficient and proactive as possible for the duration of the building’s lifecycle."
