Happy Tenants in Building No. 1 Thanks to ROM and evon XAMControl

Since 2018, ROM - Rud. Otto Meyer Technik GmbH & Co. KG (ROM) have been evon’s partner in the building automation sector. ROM is a traditional company with a history spanning over 150 years and currently employs around 2,300 highly qualified people. The company offers comprehensive expertise in all areas of technical equipment for buildings (heating, ventilation and climate control) to its customers in Germany acting as a planner, constructor and also as an operator.

Glückstein Quarter Mannheim

In 2011, construction work began on a new city quarter on a 33 hectare plot that used to be owned by the German railway company, Deutsche Bahn. Once completed, office buildings, scientific institutions, a hotel and public parks will offer space for almost 4,600 workers and 1,500 inhabitants. In 2019 and 2020, ROM equipped Building No.1 with modern building automation software from evon. Project management and execution was carried out by Consus Real Estate AG.

No. 1 Glückstein Quarter Mannheim

Building No. 1 was built with 14 storeys with a floor space of 19,000 m2 and houses a variety of occupants (offices, hotel, retailers). The tenants include well-known companies from all business sectors.

The diversity of use placed ambitious demands on the building automation system. Thanks to evon XAMControl, the various components for heating, ventilation and climate control are combined in a single system via Modbus, OPC-UA, MBus and BACnet using Beckhoff hardware. The comfort of each individual tenant is provided by 36 evon Smart Room Controllers for individual room control. This ensures Building No. 1 will remain the number 1 for energy efficiency even into the future as cooling systems and district heat transfer stations are also integrated. All energy meters are connected via MBus and continuously deliver data for optimization purposes.

The combination of software (evon XAMControl) and the high level of expertise at ROM for the implementation has resulted in a successful project with verifiable added value for the client.
