“The three most difficult challenges in any high-rise office building are HVAC, elevators and janitorial. Without an adequate building automation system, WyteStone Plaza was impossible to control,” added Bob Waldrop, C.P.E., Vice President of Richmond for W.J. Vakos. “Now, it’s like putting an HVAC mechanic in every location – and they’re talking to each other! “In the past, we couldn’t react as quickly – the building is on a north-south axis, and winters had been a particular problem,” Waldrop continued. “Now, we can make adjustments before the tenants even know and keep costs down [Automated Logic - Virginia’s Guss also noted WebCTRL’s ability to support quick response to any system alarms]. Complaints have dropped, and everything is easier,” Waldrop concluded.
