Mitie creates hub for facilities transformation

Mitie has unveiled its Facilities Transformation Hub at its London headquarters in The Shard, highlighting how it can support customers with the latest technology.

The five areas of focus for the hub are:

  • Accelerating the path to net zero by reducing energy use and generating cleaner, greener power
  • Designing commute-worthy spaces to support hybrid working and creating great places to work
  • Ensuring buildings and equipment are working as efficiently and productively as possible
  • Providing clean and sustainable spaces, in the context of a post-pandemic world
  • Protecting people and property particularly in response to evolving threats and rising retail crime

The power of data and analytics are used to improve the efficiency of Mitie’s customers’ buildings. Through remote digital maintenance, it can track the performance of buildings and their equipment, such as heating and ventilation systems, in near-real time. This enables smarter decision making, with engineers able to pinpoint malfunctions and gain better insight to predict maintenance requirements before major issues arise.

By using software tools that model energy use across an entire estate, a team of specialist energy managers can also help customers to accelerate towards net zero. Balancing environmental and cost benefits the team can identify priority sites for energy optimisation and build a picture of the best combination of renewable power solutions for each customer.

Cijo Joseph, Chief Technology and Information Officer, Mitie, said:

This is an exciting time for our industry, the needs of our customers are constantly evolving and so must we. By embracing new technology, we have the opportunity to rethink how we deliver our services, shifting from facilities management to facilities transformation. With our technology-led approach we’re creating safer, cleaner, more sustainable and efficient workspaces for our customers and our colleagues.
