BCI Building Control Integrators

Academic Institutions

The Ohio State University


Location

Nearly ten years ago, the first BACnet project was installed at The Ohio State University by Building Control Integrators (BCI). 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. The OSU BACnet network is currently comprised of 19 different vendors with connectivity to multiple system types. The Ohio State University employs the BACnet protocol to its fullest extent and benefits greatly from the standardization of systems. Moreover, the university continues to profit from the bidding process as several contractors/manufacturers are readily available with BACnet product.
