Convia, a Herman Miller Company, was on a mission. It had developed a Sustainable Energy Infrastructure, one of the most advanced monitoring systems in the industry for tracking energy consumption in buildings ranging from single rooms to entire campuses. With the systems in place, it turned to ATOM to create a software application and Graphic User Interface that would be an engaging interface to present the endless harvested energy data in a systematic and graphical view.
ATOM took the lead role in not only shaping the Graphical User Interface and information display but programmed a sophisticated free standing software application that harvested essential energy usage data from a backend acquisition server. The team infused a Humanistic aspect to the GUI by integrating a Tree icon that expressed the visual status of the areas being monitored. Users could quickly and intuitively asses the “health” of their system based on predetermined ASHREA standards and thresholds.
The first installation was the United States Green Building Council headquarters in Washington D.C. The application now plays an instrumental role in corporations having their building become LEED®-certified.
