The renovation of San Jose State University’s the three-building Spartan Complex updated both existing structural system and the buildings’ mechanical systems. This was a complex, phased renovation project of an existing central facility which required a high level of flexibility and field coordination to meet aggressive project timelines.
The project team chose Syserco to provide an Alerton Energy Management & Control System solution to control and monitor the complex’s new mechanical equipment. Syserco was selected for its record of outstanding performance on multi-phase renovation projects and the ability to integrate new buildings into existing Tridium servers, such as those found at the Spartan Complex.
Syserco’s EMCS solution included control strategies for system optimization and enhanced energy efficiency, which requiring required extensive collaboration with the University. Syserco’s solution also included comprehensive utility metering of the facility’s electrical, steam, and chilled water systems. To gather this utility data, Syserco designed and fabricated custom-built metering panels and a complex integration utilizing MODBUS TCP.
Syserco’s Alerton EMCS solution for the Spartan Complex allows the University to monitor all power, steam, and chilled water consumption, to efficiently control the facility’s mechanical systems, and to significantly reduce energy consumption.
