Energy Management System Upgrade - Johns Creek, Georgia
Macy’s Pilot Project
Johns Creek, Georgia
Owner: Macy’s, Inc.
Engineer: McKenney’s, Inc.
McKenney’s completed a pilot project to upgrade an energy monitoring
system at Macy’s stores nationwide.
Macy’s had an existing Tridium Niagara R2 platform for energy
management in place that monitored everything from space temperature
and light status to water use and trash compactors. When Macy’s
decided to upgrade to the latest Tridium AX technology, McKenney’s
conducted a pilot to show the retailer it could seamlessly import critical
data into the AX platform while duplicating existing R2 functionality.
The McKenney’s team developed custom software tools and unique code
to automate the conversion of store databases while maintaining existing
data integrity. This customization ensured that no functionality was lost
while also providing updated capabilities and higher levels of data
assurance. In addition, the McKenney’s team enhanced Macy’s data

AX upgrade is now underway at all 800-plus Macy’s stores.
