Honeywell to supply building & energy management tech for Auckland's Seascape Tower
Honeywell has secured a contract to provide building management and energy management systems for what will be Auckland’s highest residential tower, the Seascape Tower.
The 187-metre-high tower, expected to be completed in 2023, will be one block away from the Waitemata Harbour. Honeywell’s systems will help to manage the building’s energy usage and to provide a comfortable living experience for those in the 221 luxury apartments.
China-based development firm Shundi Group is leading the project, with support from China Construction New Zealand, as well as Honeywell and other organisations.
Shundi Group deputy general manager Frank Xu says, "The Seascape Tower will not only be the highest residential building in New Zealand but also will feature the latest technology and amenities.”
Honeywell Building Technologies Asia Pacific general manager of projects Tom Bain adds that the systems will “enable effective and efficient management of the building’s systems and provide a more comfortable and enjoyable experience for people living and working in the tower.”
Honeywell will supply Honeywell Energy Manager and Enterprise Buildings Integrator to the tower.
The Honeywell Energy Manager is a reporting engine for facility management that helps to collect, analyse and take action on energy data. This enables users to reduce energy consumption, costs, and carbon emissions.
Honeywell Enterprise Buildings Integrator is a building management system developed within a single management portal. The system provides automated workflows and also enables the integration of other systems including video surveillance, access and intrusion control, building and energy management.
"The Honeywell solution will provide the tools they need to seamlessly manage multiple building systems to drive energy resource management while also supporting environmental conditions that will be pleasing to visitors and residents,” says Xu.
Honeywell has worked with New Zealand companies for more than 40 years. The company has supported commercial facilities, hospitals, and education facilities, as well as justice and corrections projects.
