2014 BX CRAFTSMANSHIP AWARD RECIPIENT
Burley Greer combined ingenuity with experience in the seamless integration of controls used for the utility steam pressure reducing station and utility chilled-water distribution system at the OSU Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering building.
Greer was instrumental in coordinating the installation of hundreds of meter connections, sensors and gauges while controlling the valves, pumps and regulators of two separate hot water systems, and two separate chilled water systems. Over 100,000 feet of conduit was used in this project.

The project, known as Evans Laboratory, was “live” to the world via BACnet/ IP in early September of 2000. Since then, BACnet has become the adopted control’s standard for the university. The original project included three main BACnet panels, manufactured by Delta Controls, with only 128 total inputs and outputs. Today, there are approximately 150,000 physical points throughout 65 facilities. It sounds simple enough, but this is not a “conventional” collection of I/O. The OSU BACnet network is currently comprised of 19 different vendors with connectivity to multiple system types. For OSU, BACnet has become the catalyst for advancing controls beyond the traditional front. For instance, the university currently uses BACnet to monitor and/ or control non HVAC/Lighting systems such as generator banks, laboratory rooms, critical patient rooms, fire alarms, air quality, power consumption, clock systems and so forth...
