It is on target to use 30% less energy than ASHRAE 90.1-2007 code standards. An Alerton BACnet energy management system monitors and controls a large central air handling unit with associated VAV boxes, chilled beams, holding area pressure monitoring and radiant heat zones.

There is also extensive BACnet integration to third party equipment including VFD's, computer room fan coil units, pressure monitors and the chiller.
