Honeywell announced that Globalworth, an office investor in Central and Eastern Europe, will implement Honeywell Forge enterprise performance management software-as-a-service to drive digital transformation at two of its buildings in Bucharest, Romania.
The company will initially implement Honeywell Forge Energy Optimization and Predictive Maintenance to improve sustainability and deliver operational efficiencies. The deployment of Honeywell Forge will support Globalworth’s goal to create high quality and energy efficient real estate spaces.
“We see technology as a differentiator in the commercial real estate industry, and in the current landscape, we’re looking for ways to not only improve energy savings and maintenance but also enhance the overall occupant experience and support our tenant’s well-being,” said Valentin Neagu, head of property and facility management, Globalworth. “Honeywell Forge can do those things and help us to achieve our sustainability goals, without sacrificing occupant comfort.”
Honeywell explained that its Forge Energy Optimization autonomously and continually optimizes a building’s internal set points across hundreds of integrated assets. It constantly evaluates weather, occupancy levels, time of day and other data, and makes adjustments every 15 minutes to improve a building’s HVAC system for peak efficiency without compromising occupant comfort.
Honeywell Forge Predictive Maintenance will help Globalworth improve how its buildings and assets are maintained through a proactive maintenance process of curated recommendations. Using sensors and system integration to analyze building controllers and mechanical assets, Honeywell Forge’s intuitive dashboards will provide near real-time insights to track building performance. This data will enable Globalworth to address potential issues earlier, which will reduce unplanned maintenance work on building systems, Honeywell said.
Globalworth also recently deployed Honeywell’s Buildings Solutions in its latest development to improve indoor air quality and energy efficiency to help reassure occupants that its buildings are safer, healthier and more efficient.
“Globalworth is a forward-looking company with an enviable portfolio of buildings that understands how digital transformation can maximize efficiencies,” said Usman Shuja, vice president and general manager of connected buildings at Honeywell. “Honeywell Forge will further help Globalworth achieve sustainability, operational improvements and occupant experience goals by providing actionable data to help the company make smarter decisions in managing its buildings.”
Honeywell Forge is a purpose-built SaaS solution on a native edge-to-cloud, data-driven architecture designed to accelerate digital transformation of operations.
