KNX technology in the new Cuatrecasas building in Barcelona


The global specialist in energy management and automation Schneider Electric was charged with implementing the lighting control system in the new offices of the Cuatrecasas law firm in Barcelona. Located in the 22@ district, the building was designed according to the rigorous energy efficiency standards of the US Green Building Council in order to obtain the LEED certification in the GOLD category, which means energy savings of up to 30%.

The Schneider Electric lighting supervision and control system, implemented through KNX technology—a standard and open communications protocol—combines home automation with manual activation and deactivation in order to adapt to users’ needs. It thus not only contributes to increasing the degree of comfort; it also improves the building’s management, facilitates maintenance and reduces energy costs.
