Blue IoT, Smart Building Certification partner for smarter buildings
Blue IoT, an Australian developer and integrator of smart cities technologies, has partnered with Smart Building Certification for a smarter, healthier and more productive future for smart buildings globally. Blue IoT will support Smart Building Certification with its assessment and certification programs in Australia and New Zealand, Asia, the Middle East and the Americas. Bob Sharon, Founder and Chief Innovation Officer of Blue IoT, said he was thrilled to collaborate with Smart Building Certification and contribute to bringing new holistic smart building standards to Australia and the world. Sharon added that Smart Building Certification goes beyond design standards like Green Star ratings and the practical standards of NABERS to assess and report on the practical “here and now” on how the building is performing.
“In our view, a smart building is holistically functional, practical, happy, healthy, safe, secure, sustainable and more. To assess and measure a building on all of these criteria can drive real value and true transformation, as well as providing proof that the facility is operating as advertised for current and potential buyers and tenants. We look forward to all the good we can do with this great opportunity with Smart Building Certification. This futureproof certification is now available from Blue IoT for buildings in the Asia–Pacific, Middle East and the Americas,” Sharon said.
The partnership between Blue IoT and Smart Building Certification will focus on three primary areas to support building owners and operators, and facilities managers: education of what smart is, how it can be achieved, and why it is important; bringing together buildings and organisations to become smarter; and developing best practices, optimisation and continuous improvement. Nicholas White, Co-Founder and Head of Operations and Strategy for Smart Building Certification, said the company shares the same vision for the future with Blue IoT; a build environment that is better for people, the environment and human performance, while being easier to manage and optimise. “We know we can increase real estate values and business revenue simply by how we apply smart technology and smarter practices,” White said.
