Publicstar are delighted to work with our associates at Lynton Services Mayfair and extend our portfolio with an additional BMS, Tridium, at a site that has been at the heart of the local community for 200 years.
In a bold move to enhance efficiency and sustainability, the historic Westbourne Grove Church, established in 1823, has undertaken a comprehensive transformation of its building management system (BMS).
As the oldest congregation in Notting Hill, the Churches commitment to the community is as enduring as its history. With a legacy of supporting the less fortunate, initiatives, like the “Breakfast and a Bag” project, shows adaption to modern times. They also provide a vibrant cultural hub, hosting an art apace, English language café and a state-of-the-art rentable space.
The heart of their upgrade lies in the Tridium BMS controller, equipped with an innovative Tridium IO module that interfaces with the JACE 8000, an internet of things (IoT) solution, installed in the main control panel.
This synergy empowers the BMS to efficiently manage diverse devices and sub-systems, orchestrating tasks ranging from hot water and ventilation system management to data logging and alarming.
This system is controlled and monitored by the Link Touch 10” tablet, which displays graphics seamlessly, aligning to our focus on user convenience.
As the system operates within the Niagara Framework, this enables seamless data streaming and visualization via web browser. The addition of Niagara Analytics further elevates user capability, transforming data into actionable insights. To ensure reliable signal coverage for laptops, tablets or phones throughout the whole church premises we installed a high-powered Wi-Fi extender.
The project leverages the church’s existing infrastructure by repurposing the LON network cables for a new Modbus RTU network, establishing a seamless connection between iSMA mix18 modules and the JACE 8000.
We are proud at Publicstar to contribute to such a successful staple of the community.
Originally catering to homeless and vulnerable individuals, the church now extends its help through food distribution, toiletries, and power packs for phone charging. Moreover, the church’s ongoing support for local families, advocacy for justice, and global humanitarian endeavours continue to define its identity.
In a profound convergence of tradition and technology, this venerable church has embraced the future. The transformation of its Building Management System not only promises streamlined operations but also empowers the church’s enduring commitment to its community, maintaining its highest level of service.
