Toronto French School

The Toronto French School (TFS) is an independent, bilingual, coeducational school from pre-kindergarten to Grade 12. Founded in 1962, TFS has two campuses and ESC Automation Toronto Inc. was responsible for providing a BAS system into multiple buildings on the Toronto campus.

Challenge

The installation was done while the school year was still in session. ESC Automation were required to provide comprehensive solutions concurrently for different buildings at the campus from a software upgrade to boiler plant integrations, and a complete BAS replacement. Installation of the BAS systems with minimal interruption in the lives of students and faculty was a priority for both ESC Automation Toronto and the Toronto French School.

Solution

ESC Automation Toronto Inc. was able to upgrade and retrofit the existing legacy third party system to enteliWEB (Delta Controls’ building management software) within a very short time frame. ESC Automation Toronto Inc. organized the electrical trades to work during the unoccupied periods allowing seamless installation. Both the retrofit and upgrade was done with minimal impact to the building occupants as possible.

Benefits

The new installation and upgrade optimized the BAS throughout Toronto French School. Building managers had fewer climate comfort issues and the
equipment performance was improved. System diagnostics were made more effective because the existing building controls were integrated with each other with faster communication speeds.

Results

The various system enhancements created a large seamless unified building system network which allowed the building managers at TFS to manage and
control their multiple facilities more effectively.
