Over the past few decades, there have been a number of seismic shifts in technology.

Internet of Things (IoT), data analytics, and cloud computing are some examples that easily come to mind. The 4th Industrial Revolution is transforming buildings into data-rich environments Modern commercial construction projects, such as office buildings, shopping centres, and residential developments, are starting to experience the technological revolution and apply connected technologies to improve our day to day working lives. Examples of this are that an employee may have the ability to change the temperature in their area, book a meeting room or parking space via an app on a smartphone or navigate to a specific point within a building. However, the construction industry is one of the furthest behind in digitisation even though related spending accounts for 13% of the world’s GDP.

It is well-known that most modern buildings already contain a vast amount of technology behind the scenes to run individual systems such as HVAC, lighting, vertical transport (elevators), audio visual, room booking, and many more. Most of the time, however, these have very little inter-operation between them which means that although the systems are complex in their own right, the next level cannot be leveraged.

This is a subject that the NDY digital teams are now addressing with vigour to win smart buildings projects across the globe and implement smart designs which reflecting our inherent values as a company.

What We Do

Technology Audit & Digital Strategies

Technology should be considered as the enabler to create specific outcomes and user experiences. It is therefore important to understand the problems to overcome, outcomes required and future landscape to allow us to create the first step towards a digital strategy. This process includes:

  • Digital Review
  • Prospective Emerging Technologies
  • Innovation Workshops
  • Occupant Experience expectations
  • Digital Vision
  • Strategies and roadmaps to achieve the Digital Vision
Master Systems Integration (MSI)

The integration of building systems such as BMS, Lighting Control, Security, Access and Fire, has traditionally been problematic with incompatibility issues and undefined lines of demarcation of responsibility. NDY can bring all the team knowledge to provide:

  • Development of interface schedules for all associated service providers
  • Chair Integration workshops
  • Coordination between integrated network and different sub-systems
  • Technical review of data integration
  • Off Site and On Site Testing
Building Automation

When designing a building automation system, the options are almost limitless; open protocol, closed protocol, DDC based etc. With our in-house expertise, NDY can advise our clients on which are the best available options for their facility. We are well placed to ensure an optimal balance between capital cost, operational parameters, life expectancy, ease of maintenance and energy efficiency.

  • Concept Design
  • Detail Design
  • Construction
  • Commissioning
Internet of Things (IoT)

We are currently experiencing the advancement from Building Automation Systems (BAS) into the Building Internet of Things (BIoT). The NDY Digital team are always exploring and researching new and innovative ways to create value from IoT data.

  • Qualification Process
  • Supplier Engagement
  • Conversion Protocol
  • Data Integration
  • Cyber Security
  • Cloud Integration
  • Data Tagging
Energy Management

We offer controls consultancy independent from type and manufacture, and a proven track record of achieving significant energy reductions through control optimisation. We can enable spaces to be better optimized for usage and enable buildings to facilitate more productivity for their occupants.

  • Systems Review
  • Life Cycle Analysis
  • Remote Diagnostics
  • Control Strategy Optimisation
  • Commissioning Verification
  • Systems Tuning
  • Energy Reporting
Smart City

The objective is to enable what is best about cities, direct human interaction, without imposing the barriers that prevent people from connecting and limit their access to the city’s many resources. Technology can help create complete communities that are highly interactive and accessible to all, freeing residents from the constraints imposed by the heavy infrastructure and spatial hierarchies of the last century. In that sense, NDY’s mission is not to create a city of the future at all. It is to create the future of cities through:

  • Strategic advisory
  • Masterplanning
  • Design and construction
Integrated Platforms

NDY has a specialist team of engineers experienced in systems integration, data analytics and cloud technologies. The Integrated Platform provides an architecture that enables data collaboration between various building systems.

  • Collection and consolidation
  • Analysis and reporting
  • Collaboration with enterprise applications
  • Bespoke presentation
  • Display and interaction
Building Performance Analytics & Tuning

Increased building performance can be achieved with optimisation of the building automation systems, ongoing diagnostics and tuning is key to sustaining the performance. With an independent approach, NDY diagnose the operational performance of the automation systems, and push the typically found industry standard boundaries to maximise the performance of the building through:

  • Diagnosis and reporting
  • Implementation and verification
  • Monitoring & tuning
