The chiller example has a great big set of elements in the basement, so I have to have a clear, logical mechanical room where it's very protected, it has a two-hour fire rating from any part of the rest of the building, I've got, you know, a sort of centralized control; in this scenario we're saying, yeah, it's not about centralized control, this is not like a university or something that really wants to have, like, you know, there's one person in charge, they know the system, they work with the system; like, this is gonna be maybe 10 different systems for 10 different tenants, the tenants are on their own and that's probably fine with the tenant, that there's not like some bureaucracy or some other person you gotta call to get 'em to come in to do something, like it's right there in your unit; so there's a bunch of advantages, but obviously a bunch of disadvantages.
