LähiTapiola wanted to improve the energy efficiency, indoor air quality and sustainability branding of their Espoo campus and commercial center Ainoa. They wanted to make these improvements because they wanted the building users to have a premium working environment above all else.

METHOD

After an initial consultation from Nuuka’s team, the scope of our work was agreed, and the connection of 2600 data points was made to Nuuka’s SaaS. The data points are collected from building automation system, sub-metering system, utility companies and local weather stations.

NUUKA APPLICATIONS ACTIVATED

The initial scope of works included the activation of the following Nuuka applications:
  • Energy Management
  • Waste Reporting
  • Renewable Energy Balancing
The Nuuka Process Performance and Indoor Air Management applications were also introduced to guarantee the eligible indoor climate conditions in the buildings.

LähiTapiola and Nuuka are currently utilizing Nuuka’s data analytics to further improve the HVAC process performance and energy efficiency of the buildings. The goal is to digitalize the traditional facility management process in the building.
