Designed by ZGF Architects with MEP, PAE and JE Dunn Construction, the Rocky Mountain Institute Innovation Center is a net-zero energy building. By leveraging passive design techniques, an airtight and superinsulating envelope, and natural ventilation, the center is able to showcase the most innovative green building design techniques all while staying true to their mission of transforming global energy use to create a clean, prosperous, and secure low-carbon future.
This LEED Platinum building maximizes its thermal mass by using night cooling in the summer. In the winter, the control system monitors indoor and outdoor temperatures to ensure that the automatic windows will open to lower indoor CO2 levels without compromising thermal comfort. Sitting at USDA zone 5b with average low temperatures of -15˚ to -10˚F, thermal comfort is key in addition to access to fresh air. These design elements enhance occupant productivity and wellbeing without the aid of energy-consuming mechanical systems.
WindowMaster actuators and MotorLink® technology automatically control the windows while ensuring genuine sinchronization between actuators and precise position control and feedback. 100 WindowMaster actuators (WMX 823) are used to automatically open and close 50 operable windows in the RMI Innovation Center in conjunction with 5 WindowMaster MotorControllers 10A / 20A PLUS. All of these products are UL approved.
These MotorControllers can be expanded with a field bus card with interface for KNX, BACnet IP/MSTP and MODBUS TCP/RTU. They also feature a built-in touch screen for configuration.
