KANICO TEXTILE FASHION CENTRE

This property belongs to the historical, industrial Simonsland in Borås city centre. Here, creative businesses are given a unique opportunity to meet, develop and grow.

THE CHALLENGE

Like many older industrial buildings, a new building automation system was needed. Following the installation of the automated control system, Ecopilot® was installed to offset imbalances in heating and cooling and continuously optimize the property’s energy consumption all while maintaining a comfortable indoor climate for building occupants.

THE RESULTS

Ecopilot® now works alongside the new system. Ecopilot® continuously estimates the property’s optimal energy operating mode by taking into account internal temperature data, external weather impact and thermal storage capacity. This helps maintain a comfortable indoor climate through less energy consumption at the iconic fashion centre.
