Cushman & Wakefield - Make buildings smart



Ensure the balance between desk/room availability and space efficiency.

Make it easy for employees to find free workspaces.



HQ sensors: 80.000 ft², 4 floors


Most office buildings today underperform. Hence there’s a huge opportunity for CREs to do better.


Cushman & Wakefield and Spacewell are using their combined experience to make buildings smarter and support the most valuable asset in your building: the people.


Optimization of the space stacking. 

Adjustment of the cleaning moments.

We’ve selected Spacewell as a PropTech partner, because of the fact that they’re from
an IFM background which makes that they’ve got an integrated mindset, combined with a
datapoint agnostic cloud platform named Cobundu that uses an IWMS system to make
the insights actionable.
