Building Systems Communicate with Each Other
Oxford School District in Oxford, Miss., signed an energy services agreement with Johnson Controls to provide the high school’s heating, air conditioning, lighting and building management systems, which will save the district $6 million in energy and operational costs over the next 15 years.
The new 220,000-sq-foot building is powered by a modular central energy plant, and the building may become the first LEED-certified high school in Mississippi.
In addition to energy-saving systems, Johnson Controls helped Oxford School District create an integrated technology environment where building systems communicate with each other. For example, the security and fire alarm systems now talk to each other. Inside the classroom, a network connects flat screen TVs, computers and handheld devices.
A community bond referendum paid for a majority of the construction costs.
