CBRE opens Smart Building Client Experience Centre

Global commercial real estate services business, CBRE Group, has opened the doors of its Smart Building Client Experience Centre (CEC) in the United States to spotlight leading building technology solutions.

Located outside Milwaukee in the Gateway West Commerce Centre, CBRE’s CEC is a 34,000-square-foot, Class-A office building that has been designed, built, and managed as a showcase headquarters of CBRE|ESI, the company’s smart building solutions business.

The centre, which evaluates new technologies on behalf of corporate clients, equipment, and technology partners around the globe  is one of just six buildings in the world that have earned a Triple LEED Platinum rating. It has also achieved an Energy Star rating of 99, an impressive achievement for this facility type and location.

The building has the ability to track an occupant from arrival on site to departure, with real-time capability to adjust air quality, temperature, light, audio, and visual capabilities based on movement throughout the environment. CBRE|ESI uses an advanced integration and analytics  platform to securely gather and analyse data from sensors, various building systems, meters, and other devices. Best practices for network security and Internet of Things design are showcased throughout the facility.

CBRE|ESI’s CEC also demonstrates the tangible results of cost reduction and environmental stewardship clients can achieve. The centre itself performed 41 per cent more efficiently than design models had projected.  It also eliminated 223 tons of CO2 (equivalent of consuming 25,000 gallons of gasoline) in the building’s first year of occupancy.

Bill Concannon, CEO of CBRE’s Global Workplace Solutions, commented: 

“The smart building process, expertise, and technology within CBRE|ESI create tremendous value for both individual facilities and global portfolios. We provide transparent assurance to our clients that their facilities are operating efficiently and optimally through the right combination of people, process and technology, while simultaneously enhancing the workplace experience for their clients and occupants.” 

By opening the CBRE|ESI headquarters space to clients as an experience centre, CBRE seeks to show building owners and occupiers how the blend of intelligent design, advanced technology, proactive operations planning, and strategic maintenance protocols can be applied to achieve optimal facilities performance.
