06.11.2018 Connected by Skanska – smart operating system for office users Connected by Skanska is an operating system created by Skanska for all office users as well as tenants and administrators. Thanks to a dedicated mobile application, everyday users can enter the office by using a smartphone, invite guests through a virtual reception or find colleagues in office. The system works as an open platform that integrates building technologies, connects people in their workplace and allows to manage office space. This is the first of this type technology in the office development industry in the CEE region. Connected by Skanska is designed to facilitate everyday use of the building for users and tenant’s guests. Please find a short film showing the system: WATCH MOVIE The system works in three dimensions: – Connected Building – integrates social functions (like a building guide, social wall, car sharing, events, restaurant’s menu, etc.) with intelligent building infrastructure, such as mobile access, activity based parking, virtual reception or possibility to report faults, etc. – Connected Fit Out – integrates functionalities in office space which allow you to find a suitable place to work, book a room, or control lighting and temperature by mobile application. – Connected Green – increases the awareness of users and improves the standard of office fit-out in terms of eco solutions when applying for LEED and WELL certificates for interiors.
