Nordic PropTech software company Nuuka has joined the RealEstateCore Consortium (REC) with the aim of adding further value to real estate portfolio owners.
In a statement, Nukka noted that demand for resilient, and remotely operated buildings is a major driver for today’s digitalization of the real estate industry but also highlighted that a portfolio’s different systems, interfaces, and protocols are making it very hard to access, aggregate and make use of the data.
“Healthy, smart buildings of the future require multiple systems such as lighting, access, space, and HVAC to work together in a concerted manner,” said Tuomas Pippola, CEO of Nuuka. “With cooperation, and by aligning execution, we can increase the speed of digitalization in the real estate industry.”
Nuuka’s platform, Nuuka Connect, is currently in use in 3,000 buildings across six countries and is hosted on Microsoft Azure. The platform has more than 100 integrations, covering all major building automation systems and sensors on the market. In combination with offering integrations to REC, Nuuka will also align to the Azure Digital Twin 2.0 standard.
The Nuuka platform allows customers’ employees and partners access to the same real-time building data for their entire portfolio, according to the company. On top of the platform, Nukka offers services such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, to help customers make actionable use of their existing building data.
Real Estate CoreConsortium was formed in 2017 to create an environment for cooperation and a common “language” to enable building owners to connect their buildings on a large scale.
“We want to contribute to and learn from RealEstateCore, as our vision and strategy are aligned,” Pippola added. “Joining the REC Consortium increases collaboration within the industry so we can make a bigger impact on buildings that are healthy for people, business, and the environment.”
