Jacksonville Main Public Library

OBJECTIVE

Maintaining reliable climate control and safety systems is critical for the library to protect its collections and provide a comfortable environment for its thousands of visitors.

SOLUTION

The City of Jacksonville has partnered with Facility Automation Solutions since 2003 to support the Main Public Library in the control and monitoring of its HVAC systems and energy consumption. In addition, we have provided the firemen’s override panel and compartmental automatic smoke control sequencing systems. The City of Jacksonville also is able to monitor the building systems over the municipality’s network using Web access.
