Befimmo

16 000 m2 of offices in Ixelles

Complete renovation of an existing building in Ixelles.  The challenge was to render it completely Smart: with a service for users that is green, flexible, adaptable, including an applications portal.

SB Experts followed this visionary project in its entirety:

  • interviews with future users of the building (from the maintenance team to the owner, including the secretary) in order to respond to the expectations of future occupants
  • conversion of users’ needs into technical and functional diagrams
  • IT backbone of the building
  • assistance with drawing up the specifications, notably by preparing a detailed report on the new technologies to be integrated into the building
  • assistance with the selection of partners.

Ageas_logo

200 m2 of space

The challenge of this project was to fit out a large empty room in order to convert it into an efficient Smart conference area.

In this context, SB Experts designed a flexible open solution which allowed the making of quality hybrid video conferences on site (with people separated by 1.5m distance) as well as remote participation.

This project was executed in two stages: 

  1. Carrying out a study: to overcome problems with the sound, visual aspects of presentations and with the speakers.
  2. Coordination & follow-up: technical follow-up, choice of solutions, coordination of technical arrangements…

 

In order to see the project in concrete terms, a 3D visualisation was proposed.

4800 m2 of flats

In the context of the creation of luxury apartments in Auderghem, SB Experts were asked to support the implementation of Smart technologies in the building.

The implementation of Smart technologies was destined to respond to the various needs of future residents, including the management of common areas through a centralised application.  By way of example:

  • automation and scenarios for technologies associated with comfort (blinds, heating, audio-visual, electricity….)
  • remote opening of doors, automatic closure of the apartment, setting off the alarm, incorporation of a calendar….
  • integration of the common areas (lifts, entry doors, garage…)
  • automatic messaging when an electric car is sufficiently charged at a charging post, reservation of parking spaces, delivery of packages….

 

The advice of SB Experts addresses the identification of residents’ future needs, the conversion of these into technical diagrams and assistance with the design of the future integration platform.

The challenge was:

  • to integrate screens, camera and audiovisuals to make them chic and practical
  • to integrate the lights and the blinds
  • in addition, significant work was carried out on the room’s utilisation interface in order to improve the ergonomics and make using it more intuitive.

Logo Souverain carré

50 000 m2 of mixed-use building

This emblematic building, located in the heart of Brussels, has been completely redesigned so that it now offers a unique and high quality experience to its various visitors and residents.

It is a mixed usage building: spa, hotel, gym, restaurants, offices, meeting and conference rooms, in addition to a co-working area.

To translate this vision into a modern experience, SB Experts were asked to provide advice concerning the overall IT architectural installation of the common areas planned for the building.  The purpose of this mission was to integrate the conventional silos and the future Smart technologies. 

Particular attention was given to the different paths that visitors and users would take so that they enjoy a homogenous and fluid experience in all the different areas.
