Evalan and Deerns have formed bGrid, a new company that offers Smart Building solutions. bGrid’s solutions create infrastructures that enable new functions to the users of buildings and that optimize their performance.
bGrid is built on the belief that technology can change a building into the Personal Assistant of its user, making work more effective, pleasant, safe and sustainable. bGrid achieves this through the deployment of smart sensor networks, which are integrated with the Building Management System on one end, and interact with individual users on the other. This delivers functions such as smart lighting and climate control, positioning of business resources (asset tracking), measuring building usage and optimising security. The network enables Apps with which users can find colleagues, locate empty desks and reserve meeting rooms.
A Smart Building that supports users
BGrid is located in Amsterdam and will be managed by Wouter Kok, who was previously Director at Deerns Nederland. “A smart building is a building that breathes, nurtures and supports” is how Kok expresses his vision for bGrid. “It responds to its users’ actual needs, and lets its users flourish. Enabled by continuous interaction between the users and their environment.”
