HVAC Controls Project: Lyric Centre – Houston, TX

The Lyric Centre, located at 440 Louisiana Street in downtown Houston, recently became one of Computrols newest customers. The building is 26 stories tall and provides approximately 385,000 square feet of commercial office space.

The Computrols Houston branch kicked off the project in October of 2017, integrating to the existing Johnson Controls system. In addition to interfacing with the existing JCI, DDC equipment, a core Computrols infrastructure is being installed. This infrastructure consists of a new headend computer, software, and lifetime-warranty controllers to replace the existing NAEs. These new DDC controllers communicate to the existing JCI equipment via N2 and BACnet protocols, enabling the building staff to monitor and control the existing JCI equipment. Computrols will also be providing additional lifetime-warranty controllers for future pneumatic to DDC floor conversions. Continue reading HVAC Controls Project: Lyric Centre – Houston, TX
