Expecting energy savings in Midtown East

757 Third Avenue

Project state: 2018

Completion date: 2019

Location: New York City, New York

Goals: Energy savings, occupant comfort

Technologies: Integrated building management platform, Niagara 4, Easy IO, BACnet IP


A collaborative effort between building owners, engineers, a state agency and a capable MSI bring energy savings to a Manhattan high-rise

757 Third Avenue is a 502,000 sq. ft. office building in Manhattan’s Midtown East. Once the current owner settled in with the building, an exploration of the building’s energy use became feasible. Buildings IOT, aided in part by the benefits of the RTEM program, was brought on to replace the two existing control systems with EasyIO panels and controllers, integrate existing Niagara devices and provide a visual user interface for full control and continuous monitoring of the new system.

The network will be switched almost completely to BACnet IP and in phase two, we will install a fiber backbone and expand analytical, metering and other services.
