EnTech put intelligence into MediaCityUK

23 February 2009 12.00 BST

(UK) - EnTech, the intelligent building control specialist, has announced a significant contract win to deliver its technology solutions on phase one of the prestigious MediaCityUK development at Salford Quays, Manchester.

Awarded by NG Bailey, the UK's leading provider of building services and mechanical and electrical solutions, the contract will see EnTech providing the design and commissioning of an intelligent building control solution. The backbone to EnTech’s design is the world’s foremost open protocol for building controls, KNX. This cutting edge offer delivers massive energy savings and markedly enhanced functionality. KNX as a protocol links via gateways to a standard specification BMS system.

This allows for the communication of all data relating to energy, variance in use across zones or areas, fault reporting to the FM division and remote system diagnosis and control. In effect KNX becomes the deliverer of the ‘vital life signs’ within the day to day life of any given building, regulating and maintaining these elements to the occupants’ specific desired design and usage criteria, maximising utility, plus minimising energy usage and waste. EnTech is part of the StudioTech Group of companies which combines architectural design, lighting specialists and audiovisual solutions.

As specialists in intelligent building controls, EnTech have long been a leading proponent of KNX and the company was selected after a lengthy review process during which the company demonstrated its ability to deliver world-class intelligent building control solutions on large-scale commercial projects. The directors of EnTech have seen a noticeable shift in the construction market when it comes to the adoption of intelligent building controls.

“Our business has grown significantly over the last 18 months and this is largely in response to the market’s increasing awareness of the potential of KNX technology. The MediaCityUK project is no exception. In many respects, we see this project as the dawning of ‘new age’ in the market’s acceptance of the KNX protocol: all of those involved in the specification process have included KNX because they know that it provides a building’s owners and tenants with efficiency, sustainability and future-proofing,” commented Alan Vickery, Managing Director of EnTech.
