In control of plant at the headquarters of Standard Chartered Bank in Malaysia is a RDM building-management system.

Resource Data Management (RDM) is providing total control and monitoring for the headquarters of Standard Chartered Bank in Malaysia. The RDM system chosen provides complete control of the VRV and split air-conditioning systems, smoke exhaust fans, booster pumps, lighting, lifts, generators, and fire and security systems. It also looks after air-handling units and pressurisation fans.

Integrating these systems enables RDM to exercise fine control over parameters such as temperature and humidity to maintain optimum environmental conditions for occupants and IT equipment. It uses a ‘comfort index’ to take account of actual and predicted weather conditions to anticipate changes and significantly reduce energy consumption.

A key requirement is to record energy use throughout the building so that it can be managed proactively to minimise running costs. The RDM system monitors the performance of every item of energy-using plant and equipment and uses specially developed algorithms to predict potential future failure.

The system consists of a main BMS controller linked to a control panel on each floor of the building via a local network. An RDM data manager gives facility managers access to the entire system via a computer, tablet or smart phone. The data manager uses open-protocol communications so it can link to all building systems.

All information is managed by the data manager for viewing via a web browser.

Andrew Chandler, founder and managing director of RDM, explains, ‘Our approach to BMS is to offer a highly customisable system, that can be tailored exactly to a client’s needs. Unlike other systems, which force end users to adopt a rigid approach to configuration and operation, RDM offers total flexibility and transparency.’
