Varma is one of Finland's largest pension insurance companies as well as one of Finland's largest institutional investors.
One of Varma's latest initiatives has been to ensure an optimal indoor climate for employees at its headquarters in Helsinki, as well as in several other commercial buildings in the Helsinki area. At the same time, Varma wanted to consolidate its property data, which was spread across the organization throughout various systems and files within different departments, into a single platform.
Easy access to data and data transparency provides significant added value for Varma. Nuuka's services also help Varma's service companies (technical operations and maintenance) to automate building processes and routine tasks in their everyday work.
There are thousands of data points connected to Nuuka's Platform at Varma's headquarters alone. These are collected from the building automation system, sub-meter system, solar panel system, waste system, lighting systems, service company and local weather data. Nuuka also provides data to third-party applications, such as Tieto's Emphatics Building service, via a REST API interface.
Varma uses Nuuka's platform and the following modules: Energy Management, Space Efficiency Management, Waste Reporting and Renewable Energy Balancing Reporting. Nuuka's Process Performance and Indoor Climate Management modules are also used to ensure an optimal indoor climate inside its buildings.
Nuuka also assists LähiTapiola with data analysis to further improve plumbing performance and energy efficiency in its buildings. The goal is to digitize the traditional real estate management process for buildings.
“We have been following Nuuka's development for quite some time and value their innovative approach to building management. Nuuka's Connect & Create solution helps us consolidate building information in a new and innovative way, which helps us provide more value to our building users, achieve optimal HVAC processes and thus make our buildings more user friendly and efficient. Even more importantly, with the help of Nuuka, we can offer our tenants premium spaces with stable indoor air quality and pleasant working and living environments”
