With Smart Buildings Show fast approaching, we look at what to expect from the show’s sponsors. Here CIM tells Smart Buildings Magazine what’s going on.

What will be your focus at this year’s Smart Buildings Show?

Buildings are responsible for 40% of global energy consumption. Fortunately, with the help of building analytics technology, this sector has the biggest opportunity to quickly and cost-effectively cut carbon emissions and play a critical role in curbing climate change. The global drive to Net Zero has made this consumption a key focus, and solutions, including the CIM PEAK Platform, have been developed to support building owners and operators to manage this consumption, and build a better future for all. CIM’s powerful PEAK Platform integrates building intelligence, machine learning and technical engineering support to improve efficiency, sustainability and comfort across sites and property portfolios.

Along with sustainability drives, we’re all being negatively impacted by the current energy crisis and crippling price increases. CIM works with large buildings and sites globally identifying equipment and assets that are unnecessarily consuming high levels of energy, and recommends immediate fixes to stop and further prevent this.

Visit CIM at our stand to discuss the sustainability and energy challenges facing you and your building. Together we can discuss how CIM can -

  • Enhance operational efficiency
  • Deliver a sustainable building or portfolio
  • Increase the value of your assets
  • Prioritise and improve tenant and staff health and wellbeing

Will there be any new products/services on your stand?

CIM’s PEAK Platform is a relatively new product in the UK Market, however we have also recently just launched PEAK Actions within our product. This first to market offering gives full visibility and control to building operators, such as Facilties Managers, Engineering teams and Asset owners, enabling smarter working and improved operational efficiencies. PEAK Actions takes building alerts developed by our rules engine monitoring all building equipment, and allows users to raise tasks against these alerts, track progress with others and maintain a complete digital history of activities for a building. Through this centralised workflow and communication, teams can spend less time doing meetings, paperwork, emails and follow up.

Will there be any special offers available to visitors to your stand?

Drop by! We normally have some freebies on the day, and a competition to win An Amazon Echo, to make your own home smarter!

What do you think are the main trends in the sector?

Sustainability and the Energy Crisis are two of the biggest challenges facing this sector now. We need a fundamental change in the way large buildings operate and monitor their energy consumption. CIM’s PEAK Platform delivers this, and further enables teams to maintain the improvements, efficiencies and savings gained by further capitalising on opimisation opportunities identified, and preventing any more energy drift.

What is your company’s policy on sustainability and net zero?

Delivering CO2 reduction is in our DNA. As a business CIM is committed to becoming carbon neutral from our scope 1 and scope 2 emissions by 2030. We will achieve this by reducing the electrical and gas consumption of the office spaces we occupy. We are determined to practice what we preach and ensure that as we grow the CO2 footprint of our business activities goes to zero.
