Significant benefits are being achieved at Liverpool One following upgrades to the business-critical control systems and IT network by Honeywell Building Solutions.

Honeywell Building Solutions has completed upgrades to the business-critical control systems and IT network of the 42 acre Liverpool One shopping, residential and leisure complex — delivering significant commercial, operational and energy benefits. Honeywell designed, installed and commissioned this major system upgrade within a stipulated 6-month timescale.

Opened in 2008, Liverpool One comprises 153 000 m2 of retail and leisure space with over 140 shops. There is also a 14-screen cinema, 36-hole adventure golf centre, restaurants, cafes, bars, hotels, apartments and offices.

The upgrade included a private hosted virtualisation solution across the server infrastructure, enabling Liverpool One to achieve much higher productivity from fewer servers — reducing IT and associated energy costs, and cutting carbon emissions by 190 t a year.

‘The upgrades have reduced electrical and cooling requirements, which will cut Liverpool One’s CO2 emissions significantly,’ says HBS national account manager John Leonard.

This upgrade to the enterprise building integrator enables the building operator to view and control building systems using a variety of compatible mobile devices, including Blackberry and Apple iPhone. This improves productivity and allows building operators to have more insight and control over their facility without being tethered to a desktop computer or console.
