Tridium’s Vykon HVAC software for control engineering played a key role in developing control strategies for services in this new stand of Leicester Tigers rugby club.

The redevelopment of the 90-year-old North Stand of the stadium of Leicester Tigers rugby club was achieved with the assistance of Tridium’s Vykon HVAC control-engineering software. The 10 000-seat Caterpillar Stand provides the Rugby Premiership champions with more capacity for supporters, function rooms and hospitality areas.

Systems integrator PA Collacot & Co. was responsible for the design, installation and commis­sioning of a fully integrated building-management system. Derrick Lailey, project co-ordinator, explains, ‘Vykon HVAC was the main reason we chose a Tridium-based solution. I needed to write a lot of bespoke logic to meet the client’s specifications, and this software platform is the easiest on the market to use. It’s very flexible, easy to set up and extremely reliable.’

The automated engineering afforded by Vykon HVAC enables the rapid creation of high-quality control systems that work first time. The result is an HVAC control system covering equipment such as boilers, DHW, pumps, AHUs and extractor fans. The time-consuming and costly need for data to be entered and re-entered has been effectively eliminated and the likelihood of re-works and callbacks for the integrator greatly reduced.

Derrick Lailey comments, ‘We are very pleased with the overall results of this installation. The client is able to manage the system independently, as a result of its intuitive design, from an on-site supervisor station. From our perspective as a system integrator, Tridium’s technical assistance and support was excellent throughout the project.’
