Surrey, B.C., & Edmonton, AB Canada (April 08, 2019) – CopperTree Analytics Inc., a worldwide leader in building data and energy analytics software, and PCL Construction, one of the largest contracting organizations in North America, today announced that they have entered into a partnership agreement to deliver smart building technology to the construction and real estate markets.
The Agreement means that PCL and CopperTree will be jointly delivering building data analytics, energy management and monitoring-based commissioning technologies and services embedded into both new construction and retrofit building projects throughout North America.
“The demand for smart buildings has been rapidly increasing and new advances in technology have meant that the status quo in the construction and operation of buildings is no longer fulfilling the evolving requirements of building constructors, owners, operators and occupants. The increasing ubiquity of IoT sensors and the need for a more intelligent way to use all the data generated by buildings presents many opportunities for market leaders like PCL and CopperTree to step in with technologies and services which meet those needs to improve the construction and commissioning process, improve occupant experience, reduce energy consumption, and streamline the maintenance operations of their buildings,” said Keith La Rose, Director of Sales & Marketing at CopperTree Analytics.
“Everyone we work with wants technologies that simplify and reduce building management, maintenance and energy costs while also enhancing tenant experience and satisfaction,” said Mark Bryant, Chief Information Officer at PCL. “By marrying CopperTree’s building analytics software, with Job Site Insights ™, PCL’s smart construction platform, we will further improve Lean construction, enable smarter buildings and cities, and increase both productivity and quality, while reducing our carbon footprint on our projects and our customers assets.”
The companies believe that embedding data and energy analytics services into new and existing buildings as part of the construction process, and then continuing their delivery through commissioning and well into the operational years of the buildings will lead to better outcomes for building owners, operators and occupants.
