Creating an optimal work environment for your people

Smarter buildings enhance sustainability beyond environmental considerations – they lower costs and support smarter working which, in turn, means greater profitability and long-term business growth.

Our smart building and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions support the evolution and creation of future-ready workplaces, blending real estate with artificial intelligence so you can monitor, measure and control every element of your building systems. We help you lower energy costs and organisational carbon footprint, provide secure, convenient access for employees and visitors, and enable smarter ways of working with high-speed data and internet access.

If you’re planning a wholesale building transformation, our dedicated smart buildings experts create a complete picture of what will work best, using their experience to minimise bottlenecks and ensure your chosen technologies interface and collaborate with one another, without clashes or interoperability issues.

And if you’re taking a more phased approach, we’ll help you pass the baton smoothly at every stage, even when activity is separated by months or years.

We also ensure data can be collected and analysed, helping you understand how your buildings are used day to day, boosting productivity, aiding regulatory compliance and increasing safety.

How smart buildings help

Reduced cost of ownership

Enabling buildings to be smarter on a continuous basis provides significant and sustainable cost savings. ICT has the potential to reduce global energy consumption from all sectors, with the biggest impact made by tools that improve energy efficiency in buildings at the design phase and through smart building management systems. Our solutions help you significantly reduce CapEx/OpEx by operating a single, integrated infrastructure rather than multiple systems, simplifying network maintenance and control in the process.

Corporate social responsibility

Your organisation almost certainly has a corporate social responsibility (CSR) policy - a smart building will enhance this. All the benefits gained from applying an integrated solution fall perfectly into the realm of corporate social responsibility (CSR) – enhancing reputation, taking responsibility for energy use and reduction, creating a sustainable business by being profitable, maintaining employment and contributing to the local community and the UK economy.

Responding to workplace evolution

Work methods are changing and organisations are having to shape up to embrace it. Hybrid working, flexible and mobile, is increasingly in demand to enable more people to balance lifestyles. Integrated solutions which gather information about how people use buildings help companies to create better working environments including permanent and hot desk solutions, and CCTV streamed live to your notebook, along with active network, infrastructure and WiFi solutions.
