Oh So Connected

Friday October 14 saw Asset Mapping connect a secure Internet of Things gateway to the BMS of Citylabs. Since then, it has been receiving a constant stream of live data from all heating, cooling and ventilation systems throughout the building.

It the first time the London based startup Asset Mapping had a chance to showcase its technology for smart building operations, connecting Building Management Systems, Internet of Things technologies and Energy Management into one system.

The next steps are to complete the mapping of all equipment that is used to operate Citylabs, including energy and security, as well as to install additional IoT sensors to gain further intelligence.

Once all siloed systems are connected, and the data is made available via Asset Mapping’s web application, operators and facilities managers will be able to make informed decisions to run buildings better. This is expected to result not only in more efficient building operating management but in in improved tenant experience, ranging from better air quality to equipment that is always working and a proactive facilities management team to support them in an agile workplace.

With greater visibility and control of key equipment, Citylabs will have new insights to the real time use of the building and its assets by resident businesses. Reduced energy and maintenance costs will come by using equipment based on real time occupancy.

 

Future development

Citylabs is one of the newest buildings in the Manchester Science Partnerships portfolio, a technology campus operator and a partner in the CityVerve consortium. In the next two years, Asset Mapping, with MSP, Bruntwood, Manchester Metropolitan University and University of Manchester will connect a minimum of nine buildings within Manchester’s ‘Innovation District’.
