TÜV SÜD, a leading global expert for testing, inspection, and certification, signed an agreement last month with Nemetschek Group’s subsidiary Spacewell to use its Axxerion software at its new Singapore headquarters.
TÜV SÜD will use Spacewell’s software at its new 8-story, 18,900 square meters, state of the art smart building, where around 700 employees will work from 2021 onwards. (see image below).
Axxerion software provides best-practice workflow automation for property and facilities management, as Spacewell is one of the Nemetschek Group’s CAFM (computer-aided facilities management) software daughter companies. Axxerion software enables flexible building operations management including the ability to connect to IoT real-time sensors in building system components to drive building performance and optimize occupant comfort.
“When planning our new Singapore headquarters, we decided right from the outset to design a digital twin. This enabled us to benefit from simulations in the design phase and digital testing during construction,“ says Joachim Birnthaler, CEO Division Real Estate & Infrastructure at TÜV SÜD. “Spacewell’s Axxerion software is now supporting us in making a smooth transition as we can continue to use our digital twin to ensure efficient operation of our building.”
First Step in Partnership
The utilization of Axxerion is just the first step in a partnership between TÜV SÜD and Nemetschek brand Spacwell. The longer goals are for advancing smarter asset management and best-in-class, practice-driven digital twin implementation aimed at delivering the highest performant facilities and autonomous buildings and campuses.
“We are delighted that TÜV SÜD has decided to use our Axxerion software in its IBP15 building,” says Koen Matthijs, Chief Division Officer, Operate & Manage Division at the Nemetschek Group. “Our companies have a like-minded approach to the digital transformation of building life-cycle management, and we look forward to sharing our experiences in this field.”
