HDI Gerling

Bauer Elektroanlagen GmbH from Halle, Germany devised a building control system for the new headquarters of the insurance company HDI-Gerling in Hanover in 2011. This building complex consists of offices, a conference centre and an atrium. KNX controls the lighting, in some cases according to the amount of daylight available and on the basis of presence detectors; can activate predefined scenes in conference rooms; control venetian blinds depending on the time of day, sunlight intensity and outside weather conditions; control room temperature; and also performs smart metering and technical monitoring functions. The efficiency of these KNX applications helped to achieve the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB) Gold certificate for the building’s energy management system.
