State of Michigan - Library and Historical Center

Matrix was the prime consultant and engineer to replace all temperature, mechanical, lighting, and related controls throughout the State of Michigan Library and Historical Center with a new direct digital control (DDC) system. This DDC system included LON and/or BacNET interoperable system controllers and Tridium network area controllers. The centralized DDC control system enabled remote operator, trending scheduling and alarm features. All pneumatic controls were converted to DDC with new electric actuators and?or variable frequency drives to reduce energy consumption. Matrix performed the required fieldwork, complete drawings indicating the existing controls and their associated equipment locations and provided a construction cost estimate. The total area of construction was 350,000 square feet.
