Abstract: There are many fields involved in the Building Management Systems (BMS). It includes a large number of different technologies, and it covers the buildings for commercial use, industrial use, institutional use, and it also includes the energy management systems and control of the building. As there is lack of Building Automation System between the Intelligent Building Laboratory and the Campus Phase 5 Building, this dissertation aims to setup a BACnet simulation to investigate the network system of the campus and develop a data communication platform between PolyU Campus and the IB Lab in BSE Department.A BACnet browser from Intelligent Control Design & Technology Co., Ltd was selected for analyzing the simulated BACnet IP networking. Also, a BACnet Explorer from Inneasoft Ltd was selected for establishing the BACnet IP networking in Campus. A software was designed for data collection automatically. In this research, a Primary Air Handling Unit (PAU), which was the PAU supply to the 5th floor in Core P of the Campus, was used to conduct data collection and analysis. Data were collected automatically in every 30 minutes every day. The software created charts and trend lines for analysis energy consumption for the Campus Phase 5 Building.As the result, the system provided a cost effective ways for the human to manage the building system. It was also able to respond a quick action and it was efficient to have changes in the uses of functions. The system could make a valuable contribution for the operation to monitor the system continuously and provided preventative maintenance in an automation way. It increased the flexibility and possibilities of facility management of buildings.
