The Building

Energy Team’s office building is a large residential building located in the industrial area of Trezzano sul Naviglio, near Milan, in the northern part of Italy. It was built in the early 2000s. The building consists of one main part – organized on three floors – that hosts the working spaces. The building is not entirely occupied by Energy Team. Before 2019, Energy Team used to occupy the second floor and half of the first floor. A refurbishment took place in 2019, following Energy Team increase of personnel and now the entire building, with the exception of half of the first floor, is occupied by the company. The overall capacity is of nearly 90 people occupying 1254 sqm. The space is organized to accommodate offices, a laboratory for assembling and testing the monitoring devices, a warehouse and a data centre.

Building had been built in 2007. During this time no major renovation or system upgrade procedures were carried out and facility management company had changed. The building has BMS, from where main technical system operational parameters can be monitored and changed. However the current facility managers didn’t have access to the BMS data and during the whole duration of the project, the access to the BMS data was not granted, limiting possibility to fully carry out TMon. The technical documentation of BMS was detailed enough to determine technical details of different systems and subsystems. Additionally CO2 measurements and AHU energy consumption measurements were made to evaluate AHU operational parameters. It was concluded, that by reducing AHU system operational hours and performing slight adjustments to ventilation duct system, it would be possible to reduce AHU energy consumption.
