Holland Match - It's All Gone Gooee Over There

Bas Ambachtsheer, President at Croonwolter&dros and Andrew Johnson, Gooee CEO met at the Building Holland exhibition.

ProptTech history has been made with global M&E firm Croonwolter&dros agreeing to connect the 5,000 commercial buildings it runs in the Netherlands  to the Gooee Building Intelligence Platform.

Gooee’s claims its operating system can take control of existing, yet inefficient BMS, to optimise building performance - all via the internet of things.


Convenient meeting

Croonwolter&dros recently featured on the IoT arena at the Building Holland exhibition. This is where, along with Humble Buildings and CBRE, Gooee launched their IoT Platform into the Dutch market scooping up two Rabobank awards for Innovation. Gooee demonstrated potential to maximise efficiencies and savings in real estate portfolios.

Bas Ambachtsheer, President at Croonwolter&dros (CW&D) and Andrew Johnson, Gooee CEO met at the show and the rest as they say is history.

Bas Ambachtsheer said: “This is a major milestone in smart real estate. If people thought buildings were smart now, they are in for a shock. A system like Gooee, which integrates into our total proposition of ‘getting-a-grip’ on a building, will become a standard.

"Gooee will be the main solution provider as we roll it out across our portfolio in combination with a smart front end app solution from our strategic partner, Office App.

"But this is just the beginning. Implementing the Gooee platform, starting with Buildview, across our estate enables us to gain visibility throughout our portfolio and offer clients an enhanced service with improved operational efficiency. CW&D wiill be adding additional intelligent software connecting to a standardised maintenance and asset management set-up."



Gooee is a subscription based and thus reduces upfront investment whilst offering good ROI for landlords, managers and tenants. Benefits claimed for the Gooee system include reducing energy consumption and operational costs. With almost 12 million sq.m being maintained and serviced by CW&D, a 10% saving on energy alone would save €120M in costs over the a 10 year agreement.

Neil Salt Andrew Johnson, Gooee MD said: “Companies like Tesla can improve the performance and efficiency of your vehicle with remotely managed software. This is what Gooee can do for buildings systems. Our investment in technology & IP across wireless communications, lighting, sensing and cloud-based applications have now made this a reality at scale.”

Gooee’s partners in this real estate ecosystem are Aurora Lighting, Dell, Tridium, Nordic Semiconductor, Vodafone, Feilo Sylvania, Interlight and Humble Buildings.
