In today’s world of carbon footprints, government led energy initiatives and Green Star ratings, there is every incentive to ensure every building is as green as can be. Achieving energy efficiency goals is a major challenge for any building design brief. Each project undertaken needs to be smarter than the one before. It will need more power to cope with more technology, but lower energy bills to pay for it. It will need to combine natural and artificial lighting, but the less artificial light required, the better!
Government and public buildings and facilities are seen to be natural leaders in achieving energy efficient goals that contribute to saving the environment too. In determining what is an acceptable level of energy usage in commercial buildings, it is obvious that government and council buildings and facilities, are scrutinised by the private sector to assess what that standard might be.
There is no government or city council project that cannot benefit from the addition of an energy management system. Excelling at both superior lighting control, and at maximizing lighting energy efficiencies, we can design a system for you that will effortlessly provide exacting levels of light and dimming control that a conventional lighting system would struggle to match.
Intelligent Environments Limited work closely with electrical consultants to create a lighting management solutions that meets all aspects of the building design brief.
Lighting can be activated via a combination of manual switching and automatic control using time scheduling, light level and occupancy sensors, all controlled by the energy management system.
Energy efficient fluorescent dimming is used wherever possible with minimal use of incandescent lighting.
Photoelectric multi sensors can be used to ramp up or dim down interior lighting according to the varying levels of natural light available.
Occupancy sensors detect unattended areas and automatically turn area lighting off to save energy. Lighting scenes can be pre-set to time out at day’s end, yet still allow sensors to operate lighting in areas where staff remain on site.
Intelligent Environments Limited can provide design, project management, on-site commissioning and tuning, relevant documentation, and full training on operating the system. We take complex technological challenges and turn them into simple but efficient, push button solutions.
The tomorrow we’ve been warned about and have been preparing for is here, even earlier than expected! And. . . thanks to the changes in the world’s economy it’s leaner and it's meaner!
Now it’s up to the leaders (whether of countries, governments, councils, businesses or communities) to walk the talk!
Intelligent Environments Limited take pride in turning theory into best practice!
