Bouygues Launches First 360 Online Building Performance Self-Assessment Tool

Bouygues Launches First 360 Online Building Performance Self-Assessment Tool
03 November 2022

An online tool that assesses the energy profile, compliance, user-friendliness and security of a building has been launched by Bouygues Energies & Services.

Using a ten-question survey, the Orbiter tool gives a building an overall score across ten key criteria, highlighting strengths and weaknesses. The information is intended to give building owners and occupiers a better sense of how their estate is performing.

Questions include “Is your building a factor that persuades people to choose your organisation to work for and to stay with?” and “On a scale of 0 to 10, is technology effectively deployed to improve the building user experience?

Depending on the accuracy of the information inputted, buildings are scored on their flexibility, how they deploy technology and the wellbeing of its occupants.

The Orbiter tool is being marketed as the first 360 online self-assessment tool on the market.

One client who took part in a product pilot said ”Orbiter helped identify aspects of our estate that are already up to standard and highlighted areas of the estate that hadn’t been addressed by other tools/initiatives for optimisation.”

David Carr, Chief Executive Officer for Bouygues Energies & Services, said: "We are proud to be leading the way in the market with the first 360 online self-assessment tool. Now more than ever, businesses must address how their operations and activities are impacting climate change, but also the productivity of their people. Improving building performance plays a significant role in this and Orbiter’s methodology aligns perfectly.”
