Entertainment / Places of Worship, Auditoriums & Casinos
Areas of Entertainment and Worship are complex facilities with large fluctuations in occupancy: parking lots and structures, reception areas, auditoriums, stadiums, restaurants, conference rooms, class rooms, hotel facilities, offices, housekeeping, gaming floors, and counting rooms all have different requirements. Today, areas of entertainment and worship are under increased scrutiny to save money, protect their employees and building occupants, and improve function in this fast changing technical environment. IntraWorks takes a proactive approach to these issues by studying new industry trends and applying electronic building system technology to help save money, reduce risk, and improve function. Additionally, IntraWorks uses a comprehensive approach to the facility itself by considering ALL the electronic building systems when planning the next upgrade, move, add or change. Lastly, IntraWorks offers constant commissioning and predictive maintenance in order to save building life cycle costs. (Up to 10x according to the Department of Energy – O&M Best Practices)
Security Large Auditoriums, places of entertainment and casinos are targets to both insider and outsider threats to include cash, asset, data and computer theft, workplace violence, terrorism, active shooter and vandalism. Managers of these types of buildings are charged with the protection and safety of large groups of people to include the public. By use of advanced and integrated CCTV, access control, perimeter, and intrusion systems, IntraWorks can help to reduce the likelihood of injury to the building occupants and provide valuable investigative information if an incident takes place. Video and Audio analytics can detect bombs, intruders, and even the sound of a gun being fired immediately so that authorities can be notified quickly saving lives and reputations. For casinos, IntraWorks can provide advanced CCTV systems which utilize video analytics to reduce gaming theft schemes.
Energy Large Auditoriums, places of entertainment and casinos utilize a lot of energy and resources to conduct business. IntraWorks can provide systems that save energy costs and make the buildings more comfortable to work or stay in. By use of advanced climate controls, energy management, lighting control, daylight harvesting systems, sub-metering, and constant commissioning, IntraWorks can help to save in overall building energy life cycle costs. Occupancy sensing systems can further save in costs by increased temperature setbacks and lighting control while rooms are empty.
Safety Large Auditoriums, places of entertainment and casinos are held to tight safety standards for the protection of its workers, guests, members, and occupants. IntraWorks can provide systems that avoid injury and save lives in an emergency. By use of advance fire detection and evacuation, critical systems monitoring, mass communication, paging, mass texting, and CCTV systems, emergencies are detected early and occupants are evacuated rapidly. In the case of a shooter or outside threat, the building itself can become a safe haven for protection. Our integrated lockdown systems and bullet resistant barriers help further protect the occupants in any facility.
Intelligence By truly integrating Security, Energy, and Safety Systems together, a building becomes more intelligent and efficient. Occupants of the building are more comfortable, informed, and work more effectively. Integrating systems is a plus sum situation whereby the effectiveness of each system is augmented by becoming connected to other systems. For example: Buildings that use the security system to sense occupancy can reduce electric and HVAC costs when occupants are not present. Fire Systems that use the HVAC system to evacuate smoke can save lives in a burning building. Intercom/ Communication systems that utilize CCTV verification are more effective. When all of these systems are connected and the information becomes available to authorized persons with graphical user interfaces (smart phone, computer, tablet), the efficiency and effectiveness are unmatched by any individual system. Simply put… Intelligent buildings work better and use less energy
