Other operational benefits

Operational benefits
• Sustainability and environmental stewardship:
Achieved 7,000 metric tons in annual CO2 emissions reduction, which is the equivalent of taking almost 1,500 cars off the road.
• Vendor management: Verified that optimum sequence of operations were programmed into the building automation system (BAS) by outsourced facilities management vendors.
Predictive maintenance: Initiated inspection and reprogramming of valve and damper controls to avoid premature actuator failure.
• Comfort improvement: With over 1,000 guest rooms, an arena, and 300,000 square feet of gaming space, guest comfort is imperative. Cimetrics monitored CO2, outside air, temperature control, relative humidity, and air changes per hour to provide unsurpassed comfort
for all guests at any time of the day or night.
• Commissioning: Optimized newly constructed area HVAC operations. Identified flaws in temperature sensor calibration in an air handling unit and worked to remedy under warranty. This also reduced energy consumption.
