Building management in office and logistics projects in Colombia

gestión de edificios

Colombia. Terranum, a company dedicated to the development and operation of real estate projects, implemented the EcoStruxure Building solution of Schneider Electric in its office projects of Connecta 26, Cortezza Palmas, Cortezza 93 and in its ZOL logistics project in Funza, localities located in the city of Bogotá.

"Large Colombian companies such as Terranum have selected this solution to improve and update the management system of all their buildings. Their choice was based on the system's ability to provide three key results: management and monitoring of all subsystems and devices, a healthier and more comfortable environment for people and also widespread energy savings," says Daniela Mora, Digital Energy & EcoStruxure Director for Schneider Electric's Andean Cluster.

This architecture and building management platform provides an open, interoperable system adapted to the Internet of Things (IoT) which helps companies to have safer facilities, thanks to the early identification of failures, the monitoring of the quality of the environment, reduction of energy expenses and the increase of the operational efficiency of connected equipment.

Additionally, the digitalization of Terranum's infrastructures provides the necessary data to reveal opportunities that, in addition to saving energy, also save money and carbon throughout the operational life of the buildings. There is a potential for a 15% to 30% reduction in carbon emissions.

According to Saulo Spaolanse, president for the Andean Cluster at Schneider Electric, "the plus of these projects in the country will be to contribute to the environment and reduce CO2 emissions, because we must not forget that even the indices affirm that the operation and construction of buildings produce 38% of all CO2 emissions and only 10% of buildings integrate technology and sustainability worldwide"

To conclude, Alfredo Rizo, President of Terranum, affirms, "the implementation of this system helps us to manage our assets in a more strategic, comprehensive and controlled way, offering our clients innovative and differential services that allow us to be at the forefront. With this, we have achieved energy efficiencies of 15% per year, optimize maintenance resources by 10%, solve problems remotely by 30% and increase preventive maintenance by up to 25%."

According to the International Energy Agency, buildings consume more than 30% of energy worldwide and it is expected that by 2050, Latin American countries will be responsible for 6% of global use, that is, 40% more than what is currently consumed.

In the context of Colombian consumption, buildings currently represent 7% of national CO2 emissions, a figure that despite being lower compared to other Latin American countries, is taken into account to rethink processes and propose initiatives for the construction sector to migrate towards more environmentally friendly environments and in turn, digital and connected.

In this sense, several public and private entities in the country have already set their commitment in the matter and launched the implementation of solutions to monitor, manage and control systems and equipment of their properties, through a single control center or platform, combining software and hardware and seeking to optimize the efficiency of the constructions.

Bienvenida a Air Conditioning for Hospitals Summit

Sesión 5: Desinfección en ambientes críticos bajo recomendaciones de ASHRAE

Esta charla estará enfocada en las recomendaciones de ASHARAE para la desinfección de ambientes críticos como lo son quirófanos o salas de hospitales, garantizando una ventilación adecuada para reducir el riesgo de infección. Nos enfocaremos en los productos que Carrier ha lanzado al mercado para cubrir esta necesidad inmediata. Ing.William Sanchez - Grupo Clima

Sesión 4: Minimizando las Infecciones Asociadas a la Atención de la Salud (IAAS)

Como se pueden minimizar las Infecciones Asociadas a la Atención de la Salud (IAAS) al proveer el flujo de aire y la presurización adecuada en los ambientes críticos. Roberto Rouanet, Business Developer Building Products - Siemens Colombia

Sesión 3: Hospitales: Salas de Presión Positiva y Negativa

Los centros hospitalarios tienen requerimientos de salas o zonas de presión positiva y negativa con el objetivo de proteger a sus pacientes, trabajadores y usuarios de las áreas de infecciosos (salas de presión negativa) o inmunodeprimidos (salas de presión positiva). Estos espacios aislados por diferencias de presión se consiguen a través de los sistemas de control de los equipos de climatización de las instalaciones. Estas salas de presión Negativa o Positiva son una parte imprescindible en centros médicos y de investigación, ya que ayudan a mantener las condiciones sanitarias necesarias para un ambiente limpio. Jose Jesús Arboledas Herranz, Responsable de proyectos especiales - KEYTER

Sesión 1: Panel - Buenas prácticas, normativas y errores en climatización para hospitales

Buenas prácticas, normativas y errores más comunes en los proyectos de climatización para hospitales Analizar cuáles son los temas en los que los ingenieros y técnicos deben capacitarse profundamente para desarrollar proyectos en esta clase de verticales que demandan instalaciones funcionales al 100% Roberto D'Anetra, Gerente - Climatiza Rómulo Laureano, Commercial Sales Manager - RGF-BIOCONTROLS Jose Jesús Arboledas Herranz, Responsable de proyectos especiales - KEYTER Roberto Rouanet, Business Developer Building Products - Siemens Colombia
