Buildings are designed for people. And people are the most valuable asset in any building. So, smart buildings should deliver the ultimate "Occupant Experience" (OE), including comfortable environments with healthy indoor air quality for maximum focus and productivity. Smart building automation systems can also do their part to facilitate employee workflows and make a great people-centric workplace environment. Most buildings have a ways to go to get smart. 75F can help your buildings sense, learn and work smarter to deliver the optimal Occupant Experience x Operational Efficiency, what we call "OE2."
Thermal temperatures, humidity and lighting are significant factors in tenant comfort, and the combination of these indoor environment factors affect occupants' ability to focus and perform their job. With sensors in each zone, we democratize temperature control and put an end to the dreaded "thermostat wars". Occupants can adjust the temperature in their zone without compromising comfort elsewhere. Better yet, the smart predictive controls of 75F Building Intelligence solutions will automatically balance and optimize the environment for comfort based upon settings, preference and occupancy.
We spend 90% of our lives indoors; yet, the air quality in most buildings is well below ideal, often 2-5x worse than outdoor air quality. And studies such as Harvard's CogFx have proven high indoor air quality can improve cognitive ability by 101%, add $6500 in productivity value per employee each year, and reduce absenteeism by 30%.
75F Solutions help improve indoor air quality, a key driver for health and productivity. That is why we monitor CO2 levels and bring in fresh air from outside to ensure optimal conditions. In fact, the 75F Smart Stat has 7 onboard sensors, supporting the emerging WELL building standard and helping to cure sick building syndrome.
You building occupants have a wealth of smart, connected device capabilities in their homes, and they expect their workplace to offer advanced technologies to support them too. The 75F Occupant App empowers employees with control for their personalize zones, including the ability to adjust temperatures and lighting, plus provide ratings and feedback to management about their working environment conditions.
Give your tenants a channel for sharing their experience in your building, enabling rating score and reporting on their comfort and facilities issues.
The ideal smart building automation system should understand setting and preferences, sense for occupancy and environmental conditions, learn patterns, predict demands and proactively manage spaces.
Even the smartest building still needs to respond to the individual occupants. So, give them a voice with the 75F Occupant App.
Increase efficiency with the ability to manage your entire system from our suite of web and mobile apps, Facilisight®. Enable employee schedules with geofencing capabilities to sense arrival and precondition their zone to match occupant personal preferences. Gain deep insights into building occupancy patterns through the occupancy map, and see correlations with indoor environmental conditions from temperatures to CO2 levels to sound decibel levels.
What's better than giving occupants an app to allow them to control their environment and give feedback? Proactively managing the their environment to pre-empt issues. With the automated sensing and predictive, continuous commissioning of the 75F smart building automation solutions, your environment is optimized for the balance of tenant comfort and energy efficiency. Plus, with ongoing by-the-minute sensing, alerts, remote monitoring and predictive maintenance capabilities, building facilities managers can identify early indicators for the air quality and temperatures going outside of desired ranges...or when equipment is not functioning as expected.
The 3-30-300 rule made popular by JLL highlights that, on an annual cost-per-square-foot basis, organizations spend roughly $3 on utilities, $30 on buildings and $300 on employees. So, if a smart building can provide ROI on energy costs alone in 1-3 years, consider the speed of payback and ongoing returns when factoring employee productivity. The goal is to foster a green and sustainable workplace environment that also factors in the comfort, wellness and productivity of the people in the buildings, for the ultimate occupant experience and value from building investments.
Smart Buildings attract smart people. Employees want to spend their time at work in a comfortable, healthy and technology-enabled work environment. 75F Building Intelligence solutions leverage the efficiencies of cloud computing, IoT sensors and wireless communications, data analytics and machine learning - all to create a great internal environment while improving the outdoor environment. Supporting a green, sustainable, energy-efficient environment is a positive move to enhance your brand and reinforce corporate values.
75F smart building solutions consider human-building interaction. Even though people work in buildings, they shouldn't be working for buildings. Instead, buildings should be working for the people. The Arc Score is a new means of measuring building performance with "Human Experience" as one of 5 key metrics by which any building owner can benchmark performance.
Building automation and controls can factor heavily into experience design, creating an ideal experience in your building indoor environments for all stakeholder occupants:
