28 August 2019 Security Services & Risk Management

Johnson Controls announced its Digie Award win for ‘Most Intelligent Building – Corporate Headquarters’ for its work on Bee’ah’s new headquarters in the UAE. This award recognises extraordinary examples of buildings, projects and communities that best demonstrate smart, connected, high-performance intelligent building concepts throughout the world.

Using Johnson Controls’ Digital Vault and extended capabilities built on Microsoft Azure, Johnson Controls partnered with Microsoft, and the Middle East’s Evoteq, to implement intelligent edge systems, devices and software designed to optimise energy efficiency, make the best use of available space and help the building’s occupants be more productive.

“With the help of Johnson Controls, Microsoft and Evoteq, Bee’ah is thrilled to be recognised for becoming the first building in the region, and one of the first in the world, to have full integration with AI to support new seamless experiences for optimisation of efficiencies, performance and functionality,” said HE Salim Al Owais, chairman of Bee’ah. “This award represents the Middle East’s commitment toward creating a sustainable future for smart buildings within the region’s urban fabric.”

At Bee’ah’s headquarters, Digital Vault is revolutionising the construction industry by translating the physical world inside a building into a digital representation with rich data that can be visualised, analysed and acted upon to deliver proactive maintenance, optimise building systems and deliver intelligent support for the people inside.

From digital workspaces to smart back-office integration, and from smart lobby-visitor management to smart security, employees and visitors at Bee’ah’s new headquarters will experience a diverse range of cutting-edge AI features through multiple touchpoints across various functions including HR, customer care, procurement, administration, and mechanical, electrical and plumbing.

For the past 21 years, the Digie Awards have recognised companies, real estate projects, technologies and people that have gone above and beyond to positively impact the real estate industry using technology, automation and innovation.
