Efficient and smart facility management
Challenge: How digitalisation can help in improving productivity of facility users, service providers and owners?
Solution: VTT has built in co-operation with Senate Properties a novel digital service that facilitates the interaction between facility users, owners, service providers and the facility itself. The service combines facility information from different sources such as building automation and shares it in real-time in role-based views. One of the information sources is the facility users who have an opportunity to give feedback on the indoor environment.
Increased productivity via better indoor environment, better prioritisation of maintenance services and energy savings
The new service will be piloted in several facilities owned by Senate Properties.
"The support of VTT's experts have been crucial for the project's success. We know what we want, VTT knows how we can achieve it."
