Triad Controls works with new building developments and also retrofits and supports Building Managements Systems (BMS) in older buildings.
If we are working on a new build, we work closely with other professionals involved in different tasks on site. We are up-to-speed on all current health and safety requirements. Our engineers put systems in and set them to achieve the priorities of the client – whether that is saving time, money, or improving the comfort of those using the building.
Specialist knowledge is needed when working in hospitals or university and medical research laboratories that require ‘clean’ air to eliminate risks of infection and contamination. The team at Triad Controls has expertise in delivering systems that meet the stringent needs of specialist customers in the health, pharmaceutical and food and drink industries.
Retrofitting a BMS to an older property brings a new set of challenges. The team at Triad Controls has worked on Listed Buildings where making alterations is strictly regulated. We have even worked in a castle as well as the iconic Alhambra Theatre, in Bradford, which opened in 1914.
Our team has worked in museums and has the expertise and sensitivity to understand how to work around valuable exhibits without causing issues. We can use the latest wireless technologies in places where it would be inappropriate to run cables along walls.
We work with new and emerging energy technologies such as biomass boilers and CHP (Combined Heat Power) systems. Combined heat and power is a highly-efficient process that captures and uses the heat that is a by-product of the electricity generation process. By generating heat and power simultaneously, CHP can reduce carbon emissions by up to 30% compared to the separate methods of conventional generation via a power station and traditional boiler. We understand how CHP systems need to integrate with the main heating plant to achieve maximum efficiencies.
We also work with solar thermal systems, which use ‘free’ heat from the sun to warm water. These are ideal for use at swimming pools where water can be heated from tanks on the roof. Using our systems and knowledge we obtain the maximum available heat from the sun to get optimum performance before reverting to using the conventional heating plant.
We can monitor solar panels and show how much energy is being generated. Public signage can pull information in real time from our system allowing the public to see how much energy is being generated by solar power and showing the current temperature in the swimming pool.
