Siemens Building Technologies has won the 2017 Building Controls Industry Association (BCIA) award for Technical Innovation of the Year – Products for its innovative Desigo CC solution.
The accolade was presented on Thursday 11th May 2017 at the prestigious BCIA Awards, held at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole. This year’s awards ceremony, hosted by BBC broadcaster Steph McGovern, saw outstanding individuals and businesses recognised and rewarded for excellence in the building controls industry.
Desigo CC is a new integrated building management platform which displays centralised information and acts as a single point of control for building management, fire safety, access, intrusion and security systems. This innovative platform is optimised for fast and efficient operation as well as engineering, which reduces installation and commissioning times, helping to create smart, efficient buildings.
Siemens developed this state-of-the-art solution to be incredibly user friendly, placing the operator at the heart of the BEMS. Desigo CC has been built around plant, with the equipment a user knows and understands appearing on their BEMS. It is designed to enable intuitive use by all users.
Desigo CC was also recently installed in an award winning project at the City of Glasgow College. Enterprise Control Engineers won the BCIA award for Technical Innovation of the Year – Projects at this year’s ceremony. By utilising the latest Desigo CC technology, this new build project benefitted from an A rated BEMS, creating a comfortable, energy efficient environment.
Ian Ellis, marketing manager for Siemens Building Technologies, said: “We are thrilled to have won a prestigious BCIA Award. It is great to see one of our products recognised for its innovative design and capabilities, as well as for its achievements within a project.”
