Carrier Product Named 'Best in Show' by BACnet at Conference
Carrier's iVU open control system was named "Best in Show" by BACnet International, during the Facilities Decisions Conference and Expo in Las Vegas. Carrier received the award as part of BACnet International’s "Leaders of the Pack" program. The program recognizes the achievements of individuals and companies that successfully use the BACnet protocol in building automation through interoperability testing, educational programs, and promotional activities.

Carrier received the "Best in Show" award for its participation in a LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold project for Crate & Barrel® and its "Streets of Southpoint" retail store in Durham, NC.

The HVAC system had to handle the extra heat load generated by the store’s track lighting, while providing precise humidity control to protect Crate & Barrel’s products, flooring, and furnishings. carrier.com
