OVG Real Estate – Smart Building

OVG Real Estate created a smart building concept for their Spark building, which we developed and implemented for them.

The project

OVG Real Estate wants Spark to become a smart building. They developed a concept to create one of the most advanced office buildings in the Netherlands. In Spark it is all about the user: the building is the personal assistant. In addition, OVG also wanted to improve the climate system to make energy consumption more efficient. We supplied the IoT infrastructure to make this concept a reality. The result is a more efficient, sustainable, and cheaper building.

The problem

OVG develops smart, high-tech office buildings with a sustainable footprint. One of OVG’s core objectives in the development of these buildings is creating healthier working environments, with added value solutions for the building’s occupants, by using smart technology. To achieve this, they used our smart building infrastructure. 

The solution

The solution is a fully wireless sensor-network, invisibly integrated. Our state-of-the-art solution consists of personal light and climate settings and a unique combination of technology and user interaction. It produces a more efficient, more sustainable, and cheaper building. 

The solution combines technical functions with user interaction functions. Nodes are placed in a high-density network throughout the building. These nodes collect sensor information, act as beacons, interact with elements such as displays and actuators, control lamps and record locations of BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) devices. They send their information to gateways and receive instructions from these gateways to control their operating mode. 

The key benefits

  • Less energy costs. 
  • Lower costs for facility management. 
  • Greater employee satisfaction through ease of use.

Interaction with users 

With EVALAN’s installed IoT solution, users can: 

  • Set personal light and climate settings via an app. 
  • Automatically adjust ventilation in rooms, based on the number of people present. 
  • Swiftly find their way with the internal routing. 
  • Find an empty workstation easily. 
  • Find colleagues quickly. 
  • Book a room easily.
