In an effort to drive down and optimise energy consumption, leading pharmaceutical, Adcock Ingram has opted for Johnson Control's building automation system, Metasys, which will enable the company to drive down power costs and usage. Johnson Controls will also be installing an access and CTV security system which is integrated with the building automation system.
Adcock Ingram's building in Midrand currently faces energy supply issues and as a result had to come up with more creative ways of maximising the resources available. The building houses approximately 200 employees.
Additionally, and importantly, the premises incorporate a large warehouse, which stores pharmaceuticals. The warehouse must run at a specific and critical temperature, again emphasising the need for sufficient energy supply to the facility to allow for optimum cooling.
"Adcock Ingram needed a solution that would enable the company to work creatively with their current energy supply. As a result, they chose Johnson Controls as we offered them a one-stop-shop solution that enables them to address their energy concerns as well improve their current security system in an integrated manner," says Neil Cameron, general manager at Johnson Controls Systems & Services South Africa.
Apart from optimising energy usage, the Johnson Controls business automation system will also allow for the measuring of current energy usage, therefore, pinpointing areas in the building where further power can be saved.
The building automation and CCTV, access control security will also be tied into one integrated communication system which in turn enables for the intelligent management of the equipment.
