Building Information Modelling, (BIM), using a central collection of databases, is now being used more than ever during the early design and construction of buildings. It essentially means that every single asset, and it’s design and starting operational data is captured into an easy to access format.
Ellis Air has been a long time adopter of this technology, improving overall systems designs as they can be modelling prior to equipment selection and installation. This also provides a data rich starting environment for Ellis Air Connect when load profiling central energy systems, and defining the maintenance strategies to optimise performance.
This provides key inputs into our strategies for peak demand response control, and performance balancing. When information is captured correctly during design, and used during the lifecycle of the community systems, everyone benefits.
