Welcoming more than 900,000 visitors per year, Auckland War Memorial Museum is one of New Zealand’s most popular man-made tourist attractions and favourite buildings. Established in 1929, this high-profile facility comprises a war memorial, heritage library, an array of Maori and Pacific artefacts, and attracts internationally significant exhibitions and provides educational services to over 60,000 school children annually.
Aligning with Future Museum Strategy – a high-level strategic and capital investment plan that is guiding a process of transformational change at Auckland War Memorial Museum, Honeywell Connected Services leverages the connectivity of buildings to improve facility operations and visitor experience to create an optimal display and storage environment for invaluable artefacts.
Following on from the implementation of an integrated building management solution and controls strategy to address energy efficiency, Honeywell connected the museum to Connected Services. Connected Services is a portfolio of technologies leveraging Internet of Things technologies, cloud applications and the connectivity of buildings, to improve facility operations and visitor experiences.
By connecting Auckland War Memorial Museum with Connected Services, the museum achieved greater transparency across building performance, occupant comfort and service maintenance effectiveness.
Empowered with Honeywell Connected Services, the Auckland War
Memorial Museum can in future extract greater value from building performance data, enable their Future Museum Strategy including energy reduction, visitor flow optimization, and extend the lifecycle of its critical mechanical plant and more.
