I.T. Co. has announced the completion of works on creation the engineering and IT-infrastructure of the new Sheraton hotel in Ufa. Sheraton Ufa Hotel is the first five-star business hotel of the international level in the Republic of Bashkortostan, the sixth in Russia and the 500th in the world hotel complex of the largest Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide operator. The list of its first guests includes the first persons of the SCO and BRICS having arrived in Ufa for the summit in July 2015.
The construction was completed in a short time – the modern hotel opened less than a year after the signing of a formal agreement with the investor. The building area is more than 19 thousand square meters; infrastructure includes eight meeting rooms, a business center, banquet rooms, restaurant, fitness center, spa, internet cafe with wireless Internet. It has 161 rooms of 7 categories, including diplomatic and presidential suites.
Based on technological and organizational consulting I.T. experts have developed a customized solution for equipping the complex low-voltage systems, taking into account the time, international security and energy efficiency standards. The company has prepared project documents and fulfilled all the work to create a local area network (LAN), low-current structured cabling system (SCS), systems for control and monitoring of engineering systems of the building and its rooms (air conditioning, electricity, heating), security and technological systems of video surveillance, monitoring and access control systems (ACS), an interactive cable TV, videoconferencing information systems complex.
As a result, 10 floors, eight large and small conference halls were equipped with low-voltage systems, about 1300 SCS ports, 150 digital video cameras, video surveillance systems were installed, 10 switching centers and server room were equipped, a fiber-optic line was tread.
Sheraton Ufa Hotel is the first hotel of Sheraton brand in Russia, where an innovative system of access control (ACS) has been introduced. Its uniqueness lies in the possibility of equipping electronic locks with a module to read an access code from the guest's smartphone with NFC or BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) technologies. In addition, the "smart" management of energy resources and climate control equipment were implemented in guest rooms on the criterion of the guest presence in the room.
The final stage of the project was the launch of the solution for scheduling and controlling engineering systems of the hotel. It allows to control temperature, read counters, monitor the guest presence in the room, choose the optimum capacity of the equipment, for example, to adjust the fan speed depending on the time of year, water temperature, etc in real time. Thanks to the intelligent control system, all of the equipment is balanced in the power consumption saving mode. The monitoring system allows you to continuously monitor all parameters of engineering equipment and quickly eliminate all errors.
It is not the first infrastructure project for I.T. As part of the Center of excellence for construction, engineering and IT infrastructure, I.T. Co. has implemented large projects on creation of engineering and IT infrastructure at the following sites: Domodedovo and Sheremetyevo airports, ParkInn hotel complex in Astrakhan, the Olympic facilities in Sochi, the Sayano-Shushenskaya HPP (Krasnoyarsk Territory), Avtonormal plant (Ufa), Moscow subway, Khakas Aluminium Plant (Khakassia), and others.
