Total Building Solutions for World Heritage Site
The protection of people and cultural artifacts has top priority at the Vatican
Total Building Solutions (TBS) from Siemens make a vast contribution to protecting and preserving the Vatican City World Heritage Site.
Wherever stringent requirements are essential for energy-efficient operation of technical building systems as well as for visitor management and intrusion detection, and cost optimization is a primary consideration, the Total Building Solutions (TBS) offer the ideal answer. This is also true at the Vatican. Even the papal residence could not function without technology for fire protection, building security, and comfortable room climates. These all are ensured with Total Building Solutions from Siemens, and not only in the Palazzo Pontificale. You will find Total Building Solutions in virtually all the other buildings in the Vatican City, including St. Peter’s Basilica, the Sistine Chapel, the Domus Sanctae Marthe guest house, the Vatican Museums and Libraries, and even the Vatican Bank, the train station, and the heliport.
Today, the Total Building Solutions in Vatican City range from security, fire protection, and air-conditioning systems to electrical power supply and distribution. The technical building systems are constantly being modernized and are networked with the Desigo building automation system. An investigation is currently underway to determine whether one system can monitor all of the Total Building Solutions in the Vatican Museums.
