News 4th May 2021 building automation

As the need for smart buildings grows, we’re delighted to have launched our new intelligent building system, IBOS as reported in EG.

IBOS is an intelligent building operating system, which enables the automation and optimisation of buildings’ operations to make them smart. Developed jointly with our technology partners, Bubll Automation, it uses the latest IoT technology to facilitate the automation of operations, remote engineering capabilities and the effective data analytics of building systems.

The easily installed, scalable platform includes enhanced occupier and maintenance interfaces delivered through mobile apps. These provide the local control and operational efficiencies essential for creating a route to Net Zero and healthier working environments.

Smart building platform solution delivered by our Building Technology team

IBOS is a new product being brought to market through our Building Technology team which draws on our property management, project management, building consultancy and ESG expertise and experience. The team will oversee the integration of the system and provide ongoing data analytics to optimise the management of building operations and input into ESG reporting.

James Hallworth, part of the Building Technology team at Workman commented:

“Having worked with the team at Bubll Automation for 12 months to develop and pilot this product, we’re delighted to now be able to offer it to our clients. The data, insight and optimisation this platform can provide are essential components for getting commercial assets on the road to Net Zero. Importantly, as the system doesn’t require buildings to have an existing BMS, it is commercially viable for a range of assets and enables data from whole portfolios to be managed on one central platform.

Having successfully piloted the system across a number of properties, we are already discussing its installation with a number of investors, including as part of some major refurbishment schemes.”
