Spotted: Home working arrangements brought comfort to the fore during traditional office hours. As businesses and employees contemplate some type of hybrid working, office heating, lighting, and air conditioning can no longer run around the clock. Not only are there not enough people in a building to require such constant energy expenditure – most businesses are seeking serious reductions in their carbon emissions.

With three intelligent solutions for building systems management, SaaS platform En-trak helps to reduce emissions and expenditure on heating and lighting, while improving employee comfort. The company’s Tenant Experience Platform provides individuals with an app for logging heating and cooling requests. In response, the system automatically activates a 10-minute stream of warm or cold air to that location.

Building managers no longer have to guess which floors will be busy as the Smart Office system provides real-time heating, ventilation, and air conditioning based on the level of occupancy in each area of the building. Empty meeting rooms no longer need to be lit and heated or cooled if they are not being used

En-trak also works with schools on their energy use, and the system can be turned into an educational tool for students.

The world of work is in upheaval, and Springwise is spotting innovations in all areas, from a Minecraft world for virtual meetings to tech-driven work pods.
