Honeywell Powers 6-Star Opera House Integration Project.

Honeywell Powers 6-Star Opera House – Honeywell Building Technologies has helped Sydney Opera House integrate more than 20 disparate subsystems, including third-party security solutions, to help improve safety, energy and water usage and achieve a 6-Star Green Star rating from UNESCO.

As a globally recognised performing arts venue and World Heritage-listed icon, the Sydney Opera House operates 24/7 requiring close collaboration between Honeywell and the Sydney Opera House’s safety, projects, and service teams. Together, they work to identify and implement solutions tailored to the unique needs of the building.

The 6 Star Green Star rating centres on innovation, and a long-lasting commitment to sustainability. Collaborating closely with the Sydney Opera House’s engineering team, Honeywell has tailored the system to the unique requirements of a performing arts building, while leveraging existing systems such as the building’s pioneering seawater cooling system. Building operations at the Sydney Opera House are anchored by the Honeywell Enterprise Buildings Integrator (EBI), a comprehensive solution that monitors and controls the building management system (BMS), as well as hardware and equipment throughout the building’s ecosystem.

Using the system as a single point of data analysis, the teams can more effectively monitor and control systems to support peak performance. For example, system captures information on ticket sales to enable efficient temperature scheduling in performance venues, switching heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment on and off, and calculating baseline energy consumption. In instances of high energy demand, the BMS alerts the building to respond by selectively shedding electricity loads. Additionally, the air circulation system automatically shuts down outside air intakes during bushfire smoke events to improve IAQ and occupant experience.

“Sustainability is in the Sydney Opera House’s DNA. Architect Jørn Utzon incorporated sustainable design into the fabric of the building in the 1960s. Now, as we approach our 50th birthday later this year, we continue to look for ways to build on this legacy by embedding sustainable thinking into everything we do,” said Louise Herron AM, CEO, Sydney Opera House.

“Thanks to the long-term support from our Global Goals Partner Honeywell, the Opera House is working harder and smarter than ever before and I’m thrilled to see this recognised in such a significant way. It’s a testament to the power of meaningful partnerships in driving positive change.”

Honeywell Building Technologies’ president and CEO Billal Hammoud said partnership and teamwork were integral to the process of enhancing and integrating systems at the Opera House.

“The Sydney Opera House takes a thoughtful and deliberate approach to minimise its impact on the environment while providing a world-class experience for its occupants – all while carefully protecting its UNESCO World Heritage-listed status,” Hammoud said.

“This requires a careful balance and technologies, but most importantly, teamwork. The Honeywell team which services and support the Sydney Opera House every day closely collaborates with its engineering and sustainability teams to make sure the building systems are performing efficiently, and we work to find innovative solutions to meet well-defined goals.”
