Located in a Grade A building in one of Asia’s most sought-after business districts, this workspace is an immersive, elegant environment designed to deliver best-in-class employee and guest experiences. The challenge was to bring clarity on how employees used the workspace, and leverage these insights to optimise energy, space and resource use. Ultimately, the project aimed to improve the property’s return on investment, while meeting sustainability goals.
What We Did: Measure and analyse space and resource use
At Neoma, we leverage a building’s existing infrastructure to minimise the impact of additional hardware and resources. For this client we complemented existing CCTV cameras at entry / exits, digital door lock data and booking systems with sensors to collect missing or granular data. Neoma operates on a leasing model — reusing the same hardware for multiple projects — minimising costs on new hardware installation and management, and avoiding needless waste. Integrating spatial, employee, and anonymous behavioural data, the Gaia platform can quickly learn a building’s occupancy patterns to identify opportunities for energy savings and streamline staff allocation, effortlessly.
The Impact: Reduce operational costs and create human-centric spaces
Unused space in buildings generates 22M tons of CO2 per year. A connected building can decrease building and operational costs by ~45%. With timely data on actual employee attendance, offices can now identify under-utilised spaces, and right-size their property portfolio. With IoT and sensor technology it’s possible to control lighting, cooling and other energy-consuming systems, so that when space is unoccupied, energy is not expended. Together, this data allows office buildings to dramatically improve staff and employee efficiency, cut costs and create human-centric buildings designed for the future.
