Buildings used for tasks related to research, development and storage in the life sciences have to meet unique requirements. In order to comply with the strict norms and regulations aimed at ensuring occupant health and safety as well as production and storage requirements, a highly specialized technological infrastructure must be implemented and maintained. This isn’t an easy task for those with responsibility for the protection of people and assets from high-risk substances, unauthorized access or intellectual property loss. Properly addressing these issues needs a building technology partner who fully understands the daily challenges faced by businesses and institutions in the life science sector. We have developed our Life Science portfolio specifically with these challenges in mind. And we are ready to support you with our broad network of specialists and our highly efficient building management solutions and services for all applications. Ingenuity for life creates perfect places. With us, you can leverage the combined potential of people, technology and services to enhance your building performance – and ultimately create the perfect place for you to achieve your business goals.

Addressing your market-specific challengesTruly integrating your building management systems means more than merely meeting technological requirements. In order to make a meaningful contribution to your success, the building infrastructure should always be seen in the larger context of your organization and its mission. This is why we always try to learn more about our customers and their goals, with the ultimate aim of providing solutions that rise to the greater challenges within all market segments.
Our Life Science solutions have made significant contributions to reducing capital and operational expenditure at universities and research institutions. For instance, Harvard University’s Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology now uses an average of 73.6% less power per week thanks to our innovative sub-metering concept. Improving sustainability with state-of-the-art building infrastructure has also proved to be a major factor in attracting and retaining talented researchers.
We help public entities walk the fine line between meeting sustainability targets and improving their service quality on the one hand, and coping with shrinking public funding on the other. By improving building performance, easing budget pressures as well as reducing technological risks and operational costs, our efficiency projects can free up capital to be reinvested elsewhere – as is shown by our contribution to the refurbishment of Hvidovre Hospital in Denmark, which is considered a showcase project by the Danish government with energy savings of 33%.
Hospitals can use our building management solutions to significantly improve their patients’ and staff’s safety and comfort, ultimately resulting in a better reputation, increased bed occupancy rates and additional earnings. Our monitoring and control technologies help you comply with regulations and provide reliable proof that optimum environmental conditions are continuously maintained. And with the help of tools such as asset tracking, much higher operational efficiencies can be achieved to the benefit of your patients’ well-being.
