Case Study of Habib Bank Plaza

Habib Bank Plaza, I.I Chundrigar Road, Karachi, Pakistan is considered to be the first tallest building of Pakistan.

In 2012, Ezzi Engineering were awarded the project for the supply & installation of the addressable fire alarm system with the SEAMLESS INTEGRATION of this fire alarm with their existing Honeywell Enterprise Building CCTV Video Management System.

We supplied Gent by Honeywell Compact Addressable Fire Alarm Panels with around 2000 S Quad & S Cubed addressable Smoke Sensors, Manual Call Points & Sounders. The addressable panels were on a daisy chain network to cover the entire tower.

The challenge from day one was to provide the seamless BACnet integration of Gent by Honeywell Fire Alarm system with the existing Honeywell Enterprise Building Integrator (EBI).

Ezzi conveniently installed and commissioned the complete Addressable Fire Alarm System within the given span of time. However, BACnet integration was a task.

It happened that In the event of Gent ‘Partner of Choice’ Conference in December 2013 at Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt, the project was discussed between Mr. Mark Fenton; business leader for Honeywell Life Safety in the Middle East and Africa and Mr. Mazher Faizullah; CEO of Ezzi Engineering.

Which resulted in; Gent and Ezzi Technical Team’s close coordination. The teams worked without looking at days and nights because of the time difference between both of the countries and even compromising their holidays. Over the period of time we came across numerous issues of BACnet Points, Syncing and Synchronizing.

The quote came true; “When there is a will there is a way!”

We kept on toiling & hence achieved the required seamless Gent by Honeywell Vigilon BACnet integration with HBL’s existing Honeywell EBi Video Management System.

Now we can proudly say that after London Heathrow Airport and some projects in UAE; HBL Plaza is the first project in Pakistan which has the Seamless integration.
