The B/E Aerospace facility is an eight-building complex in North Carolina taking up more than 264,000 square feet of manufacturing floor space. Housing the company’s Seating Products and Design Studio division, the needs of this manufacturing are constantly changing.
Existing equipment was already 20 years old when they elected to partner with Piedmont for equipment maintenance over 10 years ago. 80% of the original equipment is still under contract and operating today (at 30 years old!). With every retrofit project, B/E Aerospace has recognized significant energy and operational savings. Automated Facility Solutions (AFS), a division of Piedmont Service Group, designed and installed a flexible HVAC control and energy management system using a single type of controller, keeping upfront costs to a minimum. As the aging HVAC equipment is replaced, B/E Aerospace maintenance staff can easily modify the controllers to reflect the new energy management and control strategies.
