Open Building System Integration (OBSI) Focus
The OBSI was developed to allow for building integration, control, visualisation and data aggregation on one workflow platform for the multiple buildings. This platform provided the client with the ability to manage multiple precinct-wide subsystems and their data all within a centralised and structured database for interoperability of the subsystems through intelligent workflows. In this way, collating segregated and siloed subsystems into a cohesive and thriving ecosystem of building system interactions and information eliminates the disruption, miscommunication and double handling that often occurs with various siloed systems, enabling optimised building system integration.
This involved the integration of over 1,000,000 real-time I/O points with over 200 daily users across multiple towers and multiple building systems including BMS, lighting, access control, CCTV, hydraulics, fire & metering, using protocols such as BACnet, Modbus, OPC, KNX, SQL, and web services.
The platform is utilised to provide a variety of stakeholders the ability to interact with the physical building, and obtain valuable insight as to the building’s performance and operation through the integrated and extracted data. This includes the buildings’ tenants, contractors, facility management teams, sustainability team, and financial teams amongst others, all with varying user privileges and permissions specialised as to their required interactions with the building.
