Equipped with Jung’s KNX installation and controlled by ComfortClick bOS software, the project was the first in Central and South America to obtain LEED v4 Platinum certification.
ComfortClick, Jung and SPHERA teamed up in January 2017 to completely refurbish SPHERA’s offices in San Jose, Costa Rica in a sustainable and smart way. LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is one of the most popular green building certification programs used worldwide. Developed by the non-profit U.S. Green Building Council it includes a set of rating systems for the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of green buildings, homes, and neighborhoods that aims to help owners and operators to be environmentally responsible and use resources efficiently. LEED v4 Platinum certification was created in 2016. It mainly focuses on measurement and monitoring, which is becoming a mandatory building feature.
SPHERA used ComfortClick’s data logging and program tasks to configure a system that enables energy savings by energy consumption monitoring and automation. Using ComfortClick bOS, SPHERA designed their custom GUI including even their own logo as part of the GUI background.
An estimated 20% of the total energy is saved with bOS building automation. Since ComfortClick bOS system is running things automatically, less maintenance work is required which results also in lower personnel costs.
Users can interact with the whole system via Android, iOS, and Windows apps with a responsive design that adapts to all screen sizes, providing a clear and fast overview of the whole system.
