BrainBox AI Launches Pioneering Artificial Intelligence Building Technology in the UK & Ireland. BrainBox AI is currently implementing its technology in 10 buildings, representing over 1,000,000 sq. ft. of commercial real estate across the 2 countries, with rapid expansion planned over the course of the next few months.
“As occupancy levels in commercial buildings continue to fluctuate and carbon taxes increase, we believe technology will play a key role in helping building owners and managers to reduce their energy costs. BrainBox AI’s technology is a game changer, bringing a level of automation to commercial buildings that has never been seen before,” said Shane Deasy, Founder and CEO of CLEVERNET.
AI-powered autonomous buildings represent disruptive innovation that enables significant energy savings. This is achieved by adding an extra layer of intelligence to existing HVAC control systems and enabling building managers to move from being reactive to pre-emptive in the way HVAC systems operate. This sort of proactive building control is especially important for owners and operators of commercial real estate as everyone adapts to new ways of working and using buildings, owing to the impact of the global pandemic.
Since launch in May 2019, BrainBox AI has installed its self-learning technology in over 30 million square feet of commercial properties, across 4 continents. The company has gained significant traction in its home market of Canada, expanded into the United States and is now scaling its international operations across Europe and APAC.
