Developers and retailers are seeing the vast impact that the Internet of Things (IoT) is having on the industry. Mobile technology and apps have made it easier than ever for developers and entrepreneurs to provide essential technology to commericial property owners and operators. Using these tech innovations to create “smart buildings” is allowing developers and retailers to create unique environments and personalized service. Key topics for developers when implementing this approach as part of their offering include Placemaking, Flex Space/Mixed Used and Proptech.
Aligning Inventory with Expectations
Existing structures are often in established growth areas with significant population density. Rather than demolishing existing structures that have outlived their originally intended use, adaptive reuse projects offer historic preservation, green renovation, and unique design opportunities. These projects often become mixed-use developments where leasing, public space planning, tenant build-out, and connectivity are chief concerns. Given the triple-bottom-line benefits—social, environmental, and financial—for all stakeholders, it makes good business sense to facilitate data capture and as-built site survey documentation with other development best practices from the start of the development life cycle.
ASSET MANAGEMENT DATA
Accurate and accessible data is a critical communication medium for all users in the ecosystem, especially in renovation/redevelopment. Coast 2 Coast offers building data in 2D, 3D, and 360º to create a single source of truth for property portfolios.
ACCURATE FLOORPLANS FOR SOFTWARE
Survey data provides a schematic of how and where to deploy IoT devices and sensors. Floorplans generated from Indoor Mapping data integrate into an array of industry software to add accuracy and context to tracking systems.
DIGITAL TWINS OF BUILDINGS
Digitized design data (building), technical data (material usage, installation performance), Internet-of-Things (real-time sensor and machine data), and other valuable data sources are visible in a single view in our “Digital Twin” solution to offer added value.
