The University is one of the top ranked universities in the UK with 25 academic schools arranged into 6 faculties. The University owns over 600 hectares of land in and around the city and makes use of over 370 buildings. Teaching and research are concentrated in the University Precinct together with nearby sites.
The University’s building stock is varied. The buildings range in age from late 17th century to 21st century. Many are purpose built, from Biological Sciences and the Wills Memorial Building dating from the 1920’s, through the 1960’s Students’ Union Building to the late 1990’s Merchant Venturers Building and Synthetic Chemistry Building. With such a large number of buildings, estate management is very important and so a high priority requirement was to integrate the buildings together to provide a secure, future proof centralised building management solution. For this task the University turned to Cougar Automation Ltd and GENESIS64TM.
“Your technical support system, and definitely the way that the same person deals with specific projects, is the feature which in my view lets ICONICS stand above the competition. “ICONICS now have the software tools at their disposal with GENESIS64TM to ensure that the solutions we deploy are ready for tomorrow.”” Richard Hallett, Principal Engineer, Cougar Automation Ltd.
