Royal Birmingham Conservatoire

About the project

The Royal Birmingham Conservatoire was built as the new home of the conservatoire as the existing building was being demolished as part of the Paradise Circus development.

Robell Control Systems were appointed by Imtech Engineering Services Central to design, supply and install the Building Management System (BMS).

The building comprises of a mixture of teaching spaces, practice rooms, performing spaces as well as being home to a purpose-built Jazz Club, an organ recital hall and also the main concert hall, the Adrian Boult Hall.

The BMS system comprises of 5 motor control panels, which control/monitor the heating plant underfloor heating, chilled water plant, 12 air handling units, domestic hot water, cold water storage and metering. 6 local control panel were also installed to link the fan coil units on each floor to provide local monitoring and feedback to the roof top central plant.

The BMS is linked to a front-end supervisor located in the facilities manager’s office, which provides a graphical information system for all plant controlled by the BMS, as well as providing other functions such as alarm handling, time scheduling, data logging and energy consumption.
