Managing a school or university is not child’s play. Budgets are spread thin and so you need to manage costs aggressively across multiple buildings. Those buildings also have specific issues, including older systems to upgrade in a school district rolling plan, or you have a mix of environments from computer centers and laboratories to lecture theatres and classrooms with particular heating and ventilation requirements. Plus of course you have responsibility for hundreds of students, keeping them safe and comfortable so that they achieve their learning potential. Delta Controls can help you make the grade in all these subjects.
Anyone with children knows nobody is more concerned about the environment than them. Delta’s Earthright energy dashboard is used in schools to really demonstrate how building controls contribute to reducing carbon and encourages eco-energy behaviours.
To find out more about our solutions to some of the problems you face click on these descriptions:
- Are you managing multiple sites with high variable occupancy - like school districts or university campuses? Our controllers can pre-program event scheduling, which saves labor and costs.
- Universities need to be able to take charge of their own system including bespoke solutions that only fully flexible programmable controllers can provide. Campus environments benefit from site wide integration of lighting with HVAC and access which reduces both installation and life cycle costs. Plus our Power over Ethernet (POE) solutions integrate the IT infrastructure meaning that as IT technology evolves your system is future proofed, keeping up-to-date with an evolving building stock.
- In schools we know you need to balance teacher controls (who want lots of fresh air ventilation) with cost management. Our CO2 monitoring and control strategies make your spaces healthy and efficient balancing controls of ventilation, windows and local classroom interfaces. We also have a range of energy management tools which can get those children engaged in saving you money!
“For us, the best part about the BACnet solution is that we can service it and program it ourselves. So service remains in house, costs are contained and we can prioritize our own issues.”
