The Internet of Things (IoT) is leading to innovative, disruptive business models and with them new opportunities for growth across all industries, sectors, regions and company sizes.
Abandoning a sequential value chain for flexible value creation networks that link customers and partners will be the model of cooperation for the future. It will result in optimised processes that boost overall efficiency and cut costs.
Bouygues Energies & Services InTec relies on a strong ecosystem of partners to ensure successful digitalisation. Each of them contributes their know-how with a view to building up something big – and inwardly also complex – that is ultimately in perfect working order. We are committed to working with leading partners that make targeted investments in research and development to set the standard in their respective sectors. As a market leader in the field of building technology, Bouygues Energies & Services InTec combines your trades’ services with the expertise of its own ICT services department. This one-of-a-kind combination enables us to create a solution tailored to your individual requirements.
BIM Room – the innovative solution for ICE Sessions on Building Information Modelling (BIM) construction sites
Everyone is talking about building information modelling, or «BIM» for short. It refers to a construction planning method involving generation and management of digital, virtual representations that include the physical and functional properties of a structure. Ideally, the planning team holds their coordination meetings on site. These so-called «ICE sessions» (model-based, transdisciplinary coordination workshops in the planning team) require appropriate information and communication infrastructures at the construction site.
Bouygues Energies & Services InTec developed the BIM Room with this scenario in mind. This new workspace is perfect for supporting collaboration on BIM projects right where the action is: at the construction site. In this working environment created especially for BIM projects, you can hold quick decision-making meetings with simultaneous access to all the necessary ICT infrastructures (both collaboration tools and connectivity). In designing the BIM Room, Bouygues Energies & Services InTec can once again draw on its multitec expertise: from electrical engineering and heating/ventilation to ICT installations, Security & Automation and even the solar panels on the roof – Bouygues Energies & Services InTec plans and installs it all.
The BIM Room is furnished with high tables and Cisco Spark Boards to put the focus on flexibility and agile work. It supports working on the model as collaboratively as possible: flexibly, simply and intelligently.
Lighting and access to the room can be controlled using an app. The Cisco Spark Boards are easy to use and offer communication based on the latest technology standards. The room helps the BIM team collaborate on all aspects of the project.
Cisco Spark Boards facilitate communication in the room with the following features to simplify exchange within a BIM project:
- Holding video conferences
- Team environment for discussions, sharing files and general connectivity; searching and access from any standard device
- Digital whiteboard
- Virtual workspace for exchanging data
The BIM Room features a powerful network infrastructure that ensures high connectivity and availability in the BIM Room, and can be extended at the construction site upon request. Our comprehensive Managed Connectivity Service package always keeps the ICT infrastructure up to date and prevents system downtime. The rental fee includes technical assistance during commissioning, as well as support services straight from Bouygues Energies & Services' ICT Services department.
Efficient, smart and secure building networks. An IoT platform that integrates building technology in the IP network. Together with Cisco, Bouygues Energies & Services InTec is the leading authority in Europe when it comes to Digital Building.
The Digital Building represents cutting-edge IP connectivity in buildings, providing efficient, smart and secure building networks. It is an IoT platform, constructed using the Cisco Catalyst Digital Building Series Switches, which were developed specifically to fulfil the needs of digitalised buildings. This single platform combines all networks and applications in the area of modern building technology in a single IP network. This allows the standardised and secure management and control of heating, ventilation, air-conditioning, audio-visual systems, lighting and other building technology systems.
In office buildings, the Digital Building improves efficiency and sustainability, offering significant energy-saving potential in every area compared to conventional methods. Room temperature and the colour and intensity of indoor lighting can be adjusted individually according to the number of employees in a particular office or meeting room, while sensors help to analyse room utilisation and occupancy rates in real time. Bouygues Energies & Services will present the technology for the first time in Switzerland in a new Smart Room.
Combining separate building technology networks
Combine all of your networks in the area of modern building technology in a single IP network. This approach with a converged platform simplifies communication between the core elements of building technology, facilitating effective and efficient solutions.
Enhancing efficiency and sustainability
The Digital Building offers significant energy-saving potential in every area compared to conventional methods. Expanding the flow of data into the ceiling can provide valuable information for the running of the building, and help users to make the right decisions.
New user experience for staff
Room temperature and the colour and intensity of indoor lighting can be adjusted individually according to the number of employees in a particular office or meeting room. With the Digital Building, manual adjustment of these factors becomes redundant. An intelligent building knows its users, and can offer the best conditions for enabling them to perform at their best.
New possibilities for analysis
Sensors help to analyse room utilisation and occupancy rates in real time, generating significant savings potential thanks to an understanding of the dynamics of building utilisation. Networked analyses provide our customers with added value for their investments, whether in an office, a store or in the health system.
What is our motivation?
We strive to provide innovative services that offer significant benefits to our customers. We believe that technology has reached a point where all the resources in a building that would typically be separate and connected to their own individual networks can now be integrated into one, IP-based network. This is the fundamental idea behind the Digital Building. Combining an increasing number of terminals and functionalities in a building in a single network paves the way for new experiences and possibilities that extend far beyond any current solution. As well making buildings more user-friendly, the Digital Building also functions as an important tool which allows building owners and companies to gain a better understanding of how their buildings are used.
Bouygues Energies & Services InTec is better equipped than any other provider to integrate these new technologies into buildings; with multitec, we are able to provide our customers with unique, cross-trade solutions and offer everything from a single source. We understand buildings – and we understand the Digital Building.
Experience the Digital Building live
We have set up a Smart Room which is available to view now. We would be delighted to introduce the Digital Building to you and demonstrate its full range of applications in person.
Due to official regulations, the temperature of refrigeration units must be recorded and documented. This ties up resources and is often prone to errors. Cool Recording’s temperature monitoring system provides an easy-to-install, simple and reliable solution. The solution uses Long Range Wide Area Network (LoRaWAN) radio technology, thus making it highly scalable and easily adaptable to your needs. A clearly arranged display on PCs and mobile devices as well as automatic document dispatch top off the solution. Cool Recording fully complies with Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) guidelines.
Predictive Maintenance (PdM) is one of several types of maintenance that can significantly improve maintenance activity planning for a system. It is used to increase reliability and reduce faults to lower the total costs.
Modern sensor technology, digital connectivity and intelligent data analyses allow you to monitor the status of all kinds of machines and equipment continuously and in real time (as in the Cool Recording service) and to plan necessary maintenance in advance (Predictive Maintenance).
Let us monitor the status of your machines or equipment. We would be happy to advise you about your personal Predictive Maintenance offer.
The basis for intelligent buildings or processes is well-designed connectivity. Our IoT and digitalisation consultants specialise in putting together the perfect mix of different forms of connectivity for you. Ideally, we advise you before you release your invitation to tender, so we can make the right platform choices together.
