The U.S. Government General Services Administration (GSA) operates the Jackson Federal Building in downtown Seattle, Washington; it houses 35 agencies with 2, 300 government employees and contractors within its 37 stories– making it the largest Federal building in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. ATS in conjunction with the S4 group upgraded the new system so it is now completely operated by an Alerton BACnet front end. All new Alerton controllers were installed on large built up AHU’s, chiller plant, steam heat exchangers, existing boilers, but ATS was able to make use of the existing JCI VAV controllers on 1200 Dual Duct boxes, a half dozen or so computer room units, and one NCM with a dozen JCI controllers downstream providing smoke control functionality. Alerton BCM global controllers bring in energy data from dozens of electrical steam and water meters.
