The Goldbeck Group is a construction company with more than 7,000 employees. It manufactures halls, multi-storey parking lots, office buildings and other types of buildings from industrially prefabricated system elements that only need to be assembled on the construction site. The company produces these components in its own factories. Customers benefit from economically and quickly realized buildings of consistent quality. - The Goldbeck concept is as follows: "The system stays in the background - the visible is individualized and the invisible is standardized".
The company has its own team of experts who deal with the field of building automation." The technical building equipment installed in our buildings is mainly controlled by Priva technology," explains Patrick Arnold, automation specialist at Goldbeck.
With regard to the ECO pilot installation, a final assessment of the performance of the test implementation will be made once comprehensive consumption data has been collected.
However, according to Goldbeck, the benefits are already clear when compared to other office buildings of the same type: The operating hours of the central heat generation system have been reduced and the switching times are comparatively short. In office rooms with the usual controlled temperature, the consideration of loads is a particular challenge, for example, the consideration of heat emission by persons and equipment. "With ECO, the temperatures are right - the comfort zone is reached automatically," says Patrick Arnold.
He is optimistic about the future possibilities of the "Energy & Comfort Optimizer" (ECO): "Once all conditions that are part of our standard building designs are implemented in the software, ECO can become a useful part of our standardized building automation solutions".
