Cushman & Wakefield and Future2 join forces to optimise commercial properties operation
The partnership, covering the CEE region, enables Cushman & Wakefield to advance the development of its property management and technical advisory services by adding deep knowledge of digital building systems.
Jonathan Hallett, Head of Central & Eastern Europe, Cushman & Wakefield: “The partnership with Future2 is aligned with our global strategic priorities to be a data-driven organisation where innovation and sustainability play a key role in the buildings of tomorrow. We are happy that together we can advance the transformation and modernisation of the commercial real estate industry.”
Paul Deverell, Business Director for Future2: “Technology and data have emerged as vital components of building performance. HVAC systems alone are responsible for 16% of global CO2 emissions. Our expertise in building systems combined with Cushman & Wakefield´s position as a leading global property services provider enables us to play a key role in helping managed assets to continually benefit from the adoption of technology and digital innovation.”
Initiatives include building equipment health-checks and analyses of asset operating performance, BMS and HVAC upgrades, operational technology & IoT systems, advisory regarding digitalisation strategies, artificial intelligence and energy management services.
