Office Building Solution



— ANZ Tower

ANZ is one of the four leading banks in Australia and one of the two major tenants of the new ANZ Tower in Sydney. It has a Net Lettable Area of 57,000 m² over 44 levels and features a number of sustainability features including high efficiency chillers, a tri-generation plant, a thermally shielded automated façade and rainwater harvesting. The challenge has been the interfacing of the tenants’ AV requirements into the KNX lighting control solution. To achieve this over 30 AMX KNX interfaces have been used throughout the building’s meeting spaces allowing the setting of lighting scenes and controlling the curtains and blinds within these rooms. Furthermore an Ethernet backbone runs through the building linking the NETx Automation Voyager based lighting control server to the various KNX networks. Finally the KNX lighting control solution is interfaced to the Building Management System via a KNX/BACnet Interface. This allows scheduling of the lighting in areas throughout the building including offices, carparks and the external lighting and signage from the BMS. At over 1,800 devices this is the largest and one of the most prestigious KNX projects in Australia. The energy efficiency measures that can be achieved with an intelligent KNX system were one of the deciding factors for a KNX solution. Trough intelligent lighting functions increased energy efficiency combined with a comfortable working environment due to optimum lighting levels have been realized. By an efficient control strategy after-hours lighting wastage is minimized.
