Global technology powerhouse Siemens said its smart building technology will be optimising Dubai Parks and Resorts, the Middle East’s largest theme park destination, when it opens its doors on October 31 this year.

The BMS technology gather key building functions into one system, monitoring and controlling technical infrastructure at MOTIONGATE™ Dubai, LEGOLAND® Dubai and LEGOLAND® Water Park, in addition to Lapita™ Hotel. It will let the optimization of systems including heating, ventilation, air conditioning, lighting, fire alarms, water metering, room automation and energy management across multiple buildings. A customized 3D graphical interface will display the status of these different systems in real time, empowering operators to monitor and control the performance of buildings across the large site from a single location.

“Technology for intelligent, digitalized buildings is becoming increasingly important in all regional construction, as owners look to streamline operating costs, increase security, lower environmental impact and protect their investments,” said Koen Bogers, Senior Executive Vice President, Building Technologies Division, Siemens Middle East. “This project required a building management system which puts the customer in full control of their building and safety tasks. We were able to customize the technology to allow fast access to key data across multiple sites and disciplines, optimizing the operation and maintenance of an important new development.”

Global installations of Desigo CC have enabled reductions in building operating costs of up to 20%, and versions of the technology have been installed in Abu Dhabi’s Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Tornado Tower in Qatar, the 3D-printed ‘Office of the Future’ and the Atlantis Hotel in Dubai, and the Siemens Middle East headquarters building in Masdar City, Abu Dhabi.

Matthew Priddy, Chief Technical Officer at Dubai Parks and Resorts, said:

“We are extremely excited about this collaboration with Siemens technology, and confident in the long-term benefits of utilizing this digitalized infrastructure system in the day-to day operations across the destination.” He added: “Using an advanced building management system is essential for an entertainment destination of this magnitude, and it will enable us to increase productivity, monitor energy consumption, control and optimize operational costs, and most importantly increase security and safety features”.
