Smart Building Services
We specialise in smart design and engineering including IT, audio visual, smart infrastructure, security and digital buildings. We work with you to develop a smart building strategy that enhances productivity and future proofs for the technological advancements of tomorrow.
Connectivity and Integration Solutions
We consider your Wi-Fi and 4G/5G digital antennas systems requirements as well as satellite IRS distribution, and recommend the best strategy to ensure robust connectivity between devices and systems both within your building and to the Internet of Things. This digitally enhances building connectivity and integrated resilient high availability networks that meet your needs both now and in the future.
Intelligent Building Management Systems
Our experience in designing iBMS that our tailored to our clients’ needs means we are well positioned to help you harness your building’s data and enhance efficiency through intelligently managed building operations and maintenance. From physical and cyber security considerations to scenario modelling using digital twin technology — we are vendor independent, meaning any technology solution we recommend is best suited to achieve your goals.
Electronic Security Systems
We guide you through electronic security considerations, such as internet protocol CCTV and door access biometric systems, aligned with the physical security requirements detailed by the physical security consultant.
We help you consider the risks your building face and help build risk management and mitigation strategies into your smart building plans.
With digitisation increasing at an unprecedented rate globally, it is vital that IT systems including Smart building networks are made secure from cyber-attack. As well as the obvious external internet threat, even closed sites with no internet access can also be vulnerable to cyber breaches from within their own organisation.
Throughout the briefing, design and implementation stages, we carefully set out the requirements for dealing with cyber threats, referencing government and industry body standards and apply to your project. During the technical submission process through to commissioning, penetration testing requirements are specified and overseen to ensure that cyber threat requirements are dealt with effectively.
Enhanced User Experience Technology Solutions
We appreciate the importance of audio visual, lighting and temperature in creating the desired ambiance tailored to the needs of your building’s occupants, as well as improving their experience through technology such as occupancy sensors, digital wayfinding and contactless interactions. Our work encompasses theatres and auditoriums, hotel guest room management systems, residential smart home automated systems, collaborative presentation meeting spaces to name just a few.
Integrated Communication Networks and MSI
A fundamental technology baseline for a smart building is the capability to utilise a shared Integrated Communications Network. An ICN is an IP Network that is resilient, secure and has the capacity to support and connect all building automation systems, thus providing a single network platform for multiple system interoperability, with the capability to grow & develop post occupation.
An ICN provides a professionally designed IP network backbone to support all of the different IoT, smart, technology services that may be required in a building. It can be built using a series of secure Virtual Local Area Network and an allocation of secure network data ports or in combination with a series of APIs on individual devices. Communication access to and from the network (via the internet) is managed with a secure firewall ensuring cyber security threats can be mitigated.
Management of the deployment of an ICN is essential, we ensure that we define the requirements of a Master Systems Integrator to manage the process from start to completion. The role of an MSI is essential to a successful deployment.
Helping You Achieve Your Smart Building Goals
Our smart design approach leverages the use of information and communication technologies to enhance usability, sustainability, efficiency and systems interoperability through a building’s lifecycle. Well planned, smart building design ensures that you are ahead of the curve as technology adapts and advances.
