LonMark International "Best of the Year" Award Recipients

HGI, Distech Controls, Devtech and Martin Mentzel

Honored for Innovation and Leadership



Multi-Vendor Project of the Year for 2015 — Large Campus Integration

Winner 2015: HGI for its Erweiterungsbau Landratsamt Sigmaringen Project

Large Campus Integration: recognizing the best medium-to-large single installation.

ISDE

The Landsatsamt Sigmaringen is the public administration body responsible for the district of Sigmaringen in Germany. A needs assessment performed in 2006, found that that existing building was no longer sufficient to support its employees. So, a retrofit project was initiated to support the creation of 190 office workplaces and flexible use of meeting rooms, plus a new open approach for building automation. The project involved the integration of products and solutions from fourteen different suppliers. But the most important prerequisite for the project involved a uniform and consistent communication protocol, which supported the unrestricted data exchange between the office space and plant automation. By specifying LonMark certified products for room automation, they were able to provide new functionality and energy efficiency throughout the facility.

Nominations were judged based upon the following criteria:

Degree of openness of the system consisting of the following elements

  • Use of LonMark International Certified products
  • Use of integrated system components
  • Openness of all five areas of the system: Devices, Infrastructure, Tools, User Interface, and Enterprise Connectivity

  • Competitive bidding
  • Value of integrated system
  • Energy efficiency achieved
  • Maintenance and Operational efficiencies
  • Unique control strategy
  • Overall project scope
