TÜV SÜD chooses Spacewell software
- TÜV SÜD implements Spacewell’s IWMS software Axxerion at its brand-new Singapore headquarters, at 15 IBP
- The software will ingest data from various smart building systems and drive automated processes based on flexible workflow logic
- TÜV SÜD and Spacewell will cooperate on solutions for highly efficient building operations
Munich, Germany / Antwerp, Belgium, January 12, 2021 – TÜV SÜD, a leading global expert for testing, inspection and certification, has signed an agreement to implement Spacewell’s Axxerion software at its new Singapore headquarters, an 8-story, 18,900 square-meter, state-of-the-art smart building, where around 700 TÜV SÜD employees will work from 2021 onwards.
Axxerion SaaS provides best-practice workflow automation for property and facilities management, offering the flexibility to tailor workflows easily to specific requirements. The software also connects with the IoT using real-time data to drive building performance and optimize the occupant experience.
“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 a partnership
But the implementation of the Axxerion software at 15 IBP is just the first step in a partnership between TÜV SÜD and Nemetschek’s brand Spacewell, focusing on smarter asset management and practice-driven digital twin implementation aimed at ultimately enabling high-efficiency operation of self-regulating, fully autonomous buildings.
“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.”
