The Matrix team supplied and implemented a full BMS which includes facility Management, Energy Management system and BCA energy audit reporting system for the new South Wing, Art & Sport Centre, Main Entrance Foyer and retrofitting Sport Complex, existing Block 1 to 9, 13, 28 & 33. The system monitor the electrical power supply, controls the lighting and ACMV facilities which include 4 units 550 RT variable speed chillers, 4 numbers of cooling towers, 17 numbers of AHU, 197 units VAV terminal boxes, 511 units 3 speeds chilled water fan coils, 18 units DC Brushless variable fan coils, 73 units DX FCU and 80 MV fans. Chiller demand based optimization strategies including variable chilled water and condenser water flow are also implemented to achieve an average Energy Efficiency Ratio of 0.65 KW/RT.
Singapore Management University
Matrix Controls was chosen once again for the new campus of Singapore Management University after their first Bukit Campus. With the ACMV and lighting controls integrated using our LonWorks® devices, the new City Campus started operations in the last quarter of 2005. Key to their selection of our brand again is the efficient controls of chiller operation that Matrix systems are able to provide. And with eight chillers in two chiller plants generating a total capacity 5550 tons, they made a carefully considered choice – Matrix Controls. After fine tuning, an energy savings of approximately 20% was achieved in first quarter of 2006 even with the increasing student population at the popular university.
Police Headquarters Cantonment Complex
One of the first truly intelligent buildings in Singapore with 13 subsystems integrated into the IBMS. Integration of the various subsystems resulted in seamless automated ease for occupants. Users are able to book facilities such as sports facilities, discussion rooms, and conference rooms from their desktops. The system will then proceed to link occupancy status for HVAC and lights, access control, information display and even food and refreshments orders to the booking of that facility so that all arrangements are automatically fulfilled.
Singapore Changi Airport
Our LonWorks® devices are used for air conditioning controls in the airport’s control tower as well as Terminal 1 & 2 to provide the soothing comfort that is expected of by all travelers arriving the world’s best airport. The networked VAV controls ensure the right temperature and humidity levels and maintain this environment for 24 hours of every single day.
Ministry of Environment Building
The Ministry of Environment Building was integrated using our programmable P-Series controllers which help to automate the air-conditioning and mechanical ventilation as well as pumps. Though this project may have been carried out some years ago, in recent additions to their system, our P-Series continues to be chosen for their expansion work.
Ministry of Home Affairs Towers
The Ministry of Home Affairs Towers is an exceptional example of Matrix Controls’ LonWorks® devices - a demonstration of true openness. The first project tender was awarded to a contractor who used Invensys to integrate the project, but the owners were unhappy and called for re-tender. A system integrator using our products won the second tender because they retained the installed Lon® devices and matched it with Matrix LonWorks® DDC reducing the overall cost. The twin towers are linked to a single iStation HMI server.
99 Underpasses and Tunnels
The integrated system provides the Land Transport Authority of Singapore with timely warnings and alarms, at one central location, in the event of flooding or fires at any of the underpasses installed with our system. All ventilation, lighting and electronic message displays are also provided through this system integrated with Matrix’s P-Series.
Harbourfront & Cable Car Towers
Matrix’s LonWorks® L-Series controllers were used for networked centralized control of all three towers’ air-conditioning and mechanical ventilation. Data flow is seamlessly integrated into the central servers for all towers with human machine interface software iStation. Server redundancy feature in iStation was enabled in this installation, with a second server coming online providing a backup should one of the servers fail.
Home Team Academy
The police training center of Singapore, Home Team Academy, was integrated in collaboration with Johnson Controls, this is another example of open systems where the VAV DDCs used were from Johnson Controls while other DDCs for monitoring and control of ventilation fans, AHU and chiller plant were from Matrix’s L-Series.
ITE College East
Open for operations in January 2005, ITE College East caters to a student population in excess of 10,000 whom attend a range of more than 20 courses run by four schools. The students and staff work and learn in an environment comfortably managed by our L-Series controllers VAV DDCs, with the cooling capacity handled by our chiller plant control system which optimizes the supplied BTU capacity to suit the ever changing requirements of a school with high population flows.
One Raffles Quay
Centrally located in the heart of the city, One Raffles Quay was developed for the leading businesses of the world – currently housing leading financial institutions such as Barclay Bank, UBS, Deutsch Bank and ABN AMRO. Comprising of two towers, the plaza bridging these towers and a retail link to the MRT station, it took 4000 Matrix L-Series to complete the main part of the IBMS integration with work is still ongoing in 2007 for the installation of tenant units. Over 3000 units of Matrix’s UAV0560L VAV DDC were installed, many of which also intelligently pass network messages to activate the lighting of restrooms when occupants are detected. BTU counting is recorded for the chilled water supplied from its neighbour NTUC Centre as well as tenant AHU and is carried out using our UGP type controllers. ORQ is the latest prestige address in Singapore’s business district.
Citibank & Plaza 8
Developed by Ascendas and located at Changi Business Park, it is Citibank Singapore’s latest office completed and moving in from May of 2011. Matrix Controls supplied S-Series VAV boxes installed with UAV0520L VAV controllers and thermostats for the landlord’s ACMV works for both Citibank Block (left) and Plaza 8 Block (below picture) for this development.
DBS Asia Hub
DBS Asia Hub (above), developed by Ariet, at Changi Business Park is located just opposite Plaza 8 (picture left – Plaza 8 view from inside DBS Asia Hub), houses most of DBS bank's technology, operations and support functions. The nine-storey 340,000 sq ft building is home to more than 3,000 staff - 40 per cent of the bank's Singapore staff.
Another building Matrix Controls is proud to have supplied in the Changi Business Park area, Hansapoint was built by Areit and is now home to a Rhode & Schwarz and Deutsche Bank employees.
Fusionpolis / Solaris
Built in the same vicinity as the well know Biopolis bio research area of Singapore, Fusionpolis, now renamed Solaris, is home to high tech firms such as Autodesk, Mediatech and UbiSoft. Matrix Controls supplied VAV to all floors of this building including additional boxes for tenants as the prepared to move in. We are proud to be associated with this energy efficient Greenmark certified building.
Built next to Clementi MRT station and just completed in April of 2011, now in May it is already a very popular mall in the housing estate of Clementi. Home to many popular shops and major brands and good restaurants, it has become a favourite destination for those staying nearby.
