A prime example of data-driven building management
Thanks to the fine-meshed monitoring, using thousands of sensors, the De Knoop government office building today is an outstanding example of data-driven building management.
The developed environment stands at the centre of far-reaching developments in society: the energy transition, the data revolution, the Internet of Things, the circular economy, smart grids and the 24-hour economy. A future-oriented building at the very least should facilitate, if not strengthen and advance, these developments.
With this, buildings are becoming increasingly digitally connected to the users and their surroundings. This is not just a technical issue, it also entails new ways of thinking. Not so much the buildings and technology, but rather the users and their needs – as a group and increasingly as individuals – stand at the centre of this trend. Availability, predictability and custom comfort are increasingly becoming basic requirements.
With almost 500,000 measured values per day, we continuously see whether service delivery is optimal and whether we comply with user demands.
To comply with all new requirements relating to comfort and sustainability, requires a great deal of insight into the occupation and utilisation of workspaces, into the delivered services and into the functioning of individual systems, as well as the overall building.
To facilitate this, and more, for the De Knoop government office in Utrecht, Strukton Worksphere developed an integrated monitoring system by smartly linking three separate systems. Thanks to the fine-meshed monitoring, using thousands of sensors, the office building today is an outstanding example of data-driven building management.
The integrated monitoring system consists of a smart interface between the facilities management monitoring system and the BIM model with Strukton PULSE and sensor technology.
