The market for office real estate is changing, with customers demanding more short-time lease contracts, office-as a-service models, and the new normal of remote work leading to an overcapacity in office space. Real estate players need to adjust to this and embrace flexibility by enhancing their service portfolio and maximizing asset and real estate efficiency. Implementing space optimization services, creating new rent models outside of monthly contracts, and upgrading building technology infrastructure are some of the critical steps.

Smart offices can be created in just about any building, thanks to advanced building technology. One of the most important systems is a building management platform that ensures all disciplines interact optimally. Room automation, for example, assures a uniform control strategy and creates a perfect interaction between HVAC systems, lighting and shading. Building tenants benefit from individual comfort control and optimal air quality. But they want to feel safe too. This is where high-tech fire safety and security systems enter the picture. They ensure appropriate access and simplify security processes. What’s more, all systems are flexible and can be adapted quickly and inexpensively to new room requirements and layouts.

The answer to making your building cost-efficient while going easy on natural resources is: digitalization. Today’s networking capability and virtually unlimited computing power and storage provided by the cloud, allow a completely digitalized building life-cycle process. Sensors producing and evaluating data enable smart offices to respond intelligently to their environment. For example, by forecasting the weather, the user demand and the power consumption, they additionally optimize energy consumption. The cloud-based building and energy management platforms help you in creating a sustainable business and work environment. We offer a comprehensive portfolio of solutions that make this possible.
