Fidelix supplies flexible building automation in Tripla
Fidelix, a part of the Assemblin Group, was chosen as the building automation system for Tripla, a complex of three blocks and underground premises, situated in Central Pasila in Finland. Tripla is the single largest project in the history of its developer, YIT, with a total value of almost 1.5 billion euros.
Since being founded in 2002, the Finnish company Fidelix has been a competitor for large international players and has developed its own smart, reliable, and widely compatible building automation system which directs building technology to work based on needs and optimising energy consumption. Fidelix is part of the Assemblin Group since 2021.
“We are involved in all areas of Tripla: in the recently completed Mall of Tripla, parking facilities and Pasila’s new train station as well as in the office buildings, homes and hotel,” says the Business Director of Fidelix Oy, Ilkka Vähämöttönen.
A strong role in planning and on site
The Fidelix system in the Tripla complex is decentralized and modular.
“Decentralisation means smaller blocks that are easier to use. Future maintenance and modifications are also easier to implement,” Ilkka Vähämöttönen says.
“We were involved in the project from a very early stage, and together with the specialist planners we were able to influence the content of the building automation. The planning has been carried out in our different offices. Up to 40 people have been on site working on building automation, and we have personally managed the work. This is an important reference for us from a very large project.”
“We have invested in project management; we have a workstation at the Tripla site, and we can provide real-time information to the customer about the progress of the project,” Vähämöttönen says.
Modern tools of building automation
The role of data monitoring grows in unison with the need to build even more energy efficient, safe, and user-friendly properties. The data generated by building automation systems can be utilized in services that optimize the energy costs and indoor climate conditions of buildings to meet users’ needs. Fidelix also monitors the building technology processes in Tripla by utilising their new Flow_how analytics platform.
Maintenance is made easier through the secure remote access to the building automation system through a browser, as this makes changes significantly more efficient and quicker.
