Where did 2018 go? For Computrols, it seemed to go by in the blink of an eye. It was a year filled with new customers, new faces, and the opening of our new corporate headquarters. As lively a year as 2018 was, we couldn’t be more excited about what we have coming up. But first, let’s take a look back at what happened over the last 365 days.
Computrols Distribution Partner, Dynamic Energy Controls, recently completed another large take over in an integration project at One Post Office Square in Boston, MA. This building is managed by JLL. At 525 feet, 41 stories tall and 832,000 square feet, this skyscraper is one of the tallest in the Boston skyline. With the help of their new Computrols Building Automation System, it may also become one of the most energy efficient. The building is currently Energy Star Certified and LEED Gold.
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→

The 10,000 square foot office space is projected to be complete in the first quarter of 2018. Continue reading 2017 Recap and 2018 Look Ahead→
