Dubai's Al Bustan hotel installs BMS to save energy
The integrated and automated system will reportedly control and monitor the MEP systems in the hotel apartments
Al Bustan Centre and Residence, a hotel apartment facility in Dubai, has installed an integrated building management system (BMS) to reduce energy costs while increasing the productivity of its machinery.
The automated system will control and monitor the mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) systems in the hotel apartments.
The system allows a high degree of personal control over the guestroom environment.
Commenting on the new initiative, Moussa El Hayek, chief operating officer, Al Bustan Centre and Residence, said: "We are proud to launch the hotel-apartments management system for light, temperature and blind control that integrates with building management systems.
"The solutions are contemporary designed, energy efficient control options that help differentiate a property or hotel, where guests can step into a room in which lights and shades automatically adjust to a predetermined welcome scene.
"This is a milestone project in developing better ways to enhance the property infrastructure and the betterment in the long run.”
According to Hotelier Middle East,with lighting alone accounting for 25% of an building's electricity consumption, the control of the room environment by the guest and hotel when the room is unoccupied will significantly reduce energy costs.
