Smart Building has expertise in developing Internet of Things (IoT) technology and integration of devices to give customers an improved building management experience.

Nicola Lovett, CEO of Engie’s Business Energy & Services division, said: “This acquisition is the next step in achieving our goal of being a key player in the smart buildings market. We recognise that FM and energy markets are changing, and we are committed to being at the forefront of those changes.

“By combining the technology that Smart Buildings has developed, with our strength in FM and energy, we will be able to add value for our customers in helping them to improve their performance, optimise their workplaces and increase employee wellbeing.”

CEO of Smart Buildings, Mark Davenport added: “Our philosophy is to innovate by leading through IoT technology and to integrate by normalising every device that can communicate, thereby empowering users to interact and control their worlds.”

Smart Buildings has already achieved recognition for its innovation, working closely with clients such as Barclays Bank, Lookers and JCT600 to introduce smart technologies to their businesses.

An award-winning partnership with Barclays Bank has seen Smart Buildings working closely with the Barclays engineering team to develop a bespoke ‘software-as-a-service’ (SaaS) application. This interacts with building equipment to give improved central visibility of the systems in Barclays’ property portfolio through a fully interactive platform.
