Schneider Electric is optimising Sodexo's office space to drive efficiency

How EcoStruxure Workplace Advisor optimised energy efficiency and employee comfort levels at Sodexo APAC House.

Since its founding in 1966, Sodexo has established itself as a world leader in providing services that improve people's quality of life. The company's expansion in Asia Pacific (APAC) underscored the importance expanding the APAC office to house both regional and local employees. 

 

The challenges that Sodexo faced with the new office goes beyond that of the expansion of space. Sodexo also had to achieve workplace sustainability by optimising energy savings without compromising employees' comfort levels. With this goal in mind, Sodexo partnered with Schneider Electric to develop cutting-edge technology for facilities management, centred around sustainability and employees' wellbeing. 

 

The solutions include Schneider Electric’s Building Management System and Building Advisor. These solutions target energy management, comfort management and lifecycle service, all achieved through real-time data analytics. With links to more than 200 sensors, Sodexo’s office is equipped to provide intelligent insights, drive automated actions and send alerts to improve both efficiency and comfort. Additionally, the Workplace Advisor occupancy sensors monitor whether certain areas in the office are being used, to facilitate planning and configuration of desks. These sensors lead to an overall more efficient use of space and electricity within the building.

 

Through the solutions provided by Schneider Electric, Sodexo achieved a 20% reduction in energy consumption since their opening, improved rental gain from space optimisation and enhanced work efficiency from increased comfort levels.
