Customized Smart Buildings Future-Proof. Value Add. User-Friendly

In our evolving digital new-age, intelligent buildings are emerging as the future. Many digital technologies are already available today. From smart parking space management to workplace and room reservations to reserving electric vehicle and charging by smartphone. But are the end-users able to make the best use of the technological upgrades and tackle the unforeseen face of digitization?

What are the challenges you are faced with?

  • User experience requirements
  • Security breach
  • Data protection
  • Cyber-attacks
  • Frequent updates
  • Expensive
  • Technically outdated after building completion

Drees & Sommer sees digitization as the starting point of its own holistic innovation strategy and is developing sustainable business models. For us, digital technologies are not just an end in themselves but are enablers of improved and new services leading to higher customer benefits and sustainability. We see Smart Buildings at the core of a smart and efficient ecosystem. A Smart Building equipped with IoT devices can intelligently monitor and control the operations of a building along with generating extra-economic and ecological value for all users. Therefore, we call it Customized Smart Building.

How do you benefit from us?

Our expert teams develop a digital transformation strategy jointly with you to bring maximum benefits and seamless experiences. We factor in your requirements, existing business models, and adapt to any business changes, and the potential of your company. We collaborate with established companies and start-ups to stay abreast with the very latest technological advances. Our goal is to enhance usability for our clients and all other stakeholders involved.

We have developed an innovative concept called the “Brain” as the central control unit using artificial intelligence to “think” from its users - making their life easier and smarter. It learns from the data of the company, the users and the environment and formulates suggestions for improvement. For example, the system recognizes unused spaces that in future may not require heating or cooling and accordingly switches off the systems in these areas.
