Ikos Olivia Resort

Total transformation

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Since the ‘70s, Gerakini in Chalkidiki has always been a very popular summer destination for Northern Greece. The old buildings and the legendary hotel, were transformed in 2015, to a 5 stars luxury all inclusive resort from the construction company AKTOR S.A.

Keeping the “shells” of the old buildings, “Nimand Architects” designed a Resort with 295 apartments, suites and rooms, 4 swimming pools, spa, open air theater and many other amenities. The architectural study incorporated elements of bioclimatic design and modern technologies for natural lighting and ventilation

AS Automation System Hellas undertook the development and commissioning of the central building automation system BMS of the resort

The central automation system controls among other ventilation and airconditioning, decentralized hot water system for the bungalows and heated pools, outdoor lighting, fire detection and fire safety, as well as water treatment

TECHNICAL SOLUTION

Our automation solutions evolved around Siemens Desigo System, one of the most complete and efficient BMS systems in the world! The important advantages relate mainly to the communication protocol that allows the integration of different systems and devices. Its expandability makes Desigo an excellent investment for many years!

The system components were:

  • Desigo Insight V5.1 management software
  • 25 Desigo PX Automation stations on BACnet/IP
  • 7 Desigo PX Automation Stations on BACnet/Lon
  • 3800 Physical datatpoints
  • 5500 BACnet Objects

AS Automation System Hellas completed the installation of the central building automation system BMS of the Ikos Olivia Resort in just 3 months from the assignment of the project! The resort opened in time for the summer of 2015 with 100% occupancy, top facilities and impeccable service.
