Project Solution

GSTEC were the successful tenderers to undertake a complete replacement of the existing Building Management System with a Schneider Electric EcoStruxure Building Operation platform, incorporating a Building Management and Energy management System, BACnet IP Smart X controllers and Space Logic sensors.  


Beyond the BMS and EMS, multiple Schneider Electric components and services have been specified by the building owner to allow for seamless integration of building services. This includes APC rack mount UPSs maintaining the active hardware on the new integrated communications network; Schneider Electric PLCs for 33 levels of louvre control system replacement and generator control system upgrades; and communicating MasterPact Air Circuit breakers in the building main switchboard upgrades. 


The Schneider Electric solution provides enhanced data availability, visualisation and utilisation - improving the tenant experience, while driving a substantial environmental dividend through reduced energy consumption. 


Intelle and GSTEC completed the project on time and within budget while maintaining the desired project quality.  


The project achieved a significant improvement in the building’s energy rating, maintained or improved tenant comfort and ensured the building occupants had access to the benefits of the latest in smart building technologies. 


The project achieved two major awards: 

2022 Schneider EcoXpert Project of the Year (Global) 

2023 NECA NSW Commercial Medium Award | GSTEC for Aurora Place BMS/EMS and ICN Upgrade
