To quickly and easily retrofit sensor capabilities into ‘legacy’ buildings, by means of ‘non-destructive’ installations, and make that data available to other enterprise systems in order to produce building management and optimisation on a par with that in modern buildings.
To pro-actively address health mandates aiming to reduce occurrences of Legionella outbreaks, by implementing a non-intrusive system in a registered historic landmark building which has limits on upgrades to physical structures.
To launch the Highland’s first fully-functional, low power, wide area Internet of Things network at the new An Lòchran building on Inverness Campus, enabling monitoring a range of building management data and also to allow businesses in the Highlands to access emerging IOT technologies and support companies in developing new products and services.
We recently won the prestigious 2017 i-FM Technology in FM award for our deployment of the Smart Building in a Bag at the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI). Pete Derry, our innovations director, at Interserve discusses our award winning partnership, with the RNLI.
Since 2014 we have been working with the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) to deliver total facilities management across its estate. Recently there was a need from the charity to operate more efficiently to maximise the resources it has whilst continuing to look after its people. Partnering with SPICA Technologies we have developed a mobile solution called ‘Smart Building in a Bag’ which is part of the InterSmart solutions.
“Working with Spica on the installation of water monitoring devices at Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust has been a real pleasure. The team fully understand the complexities of working with the NHS and our PFI partner. They have been considerate and flexible throughout the process and have responded quickly to opportunities to install the devices in difficult to access areas where we are treating our immunosuppressed patients. Spica have an innovative product which will inevitably change the face of water monitoring and compliance. Rather than searching for problems, we can focus resources on responding to automatically identified issues. The data is simple to manage with a range of reporting options to suit the end user.”
