CBRE’s CEC is one of just six buildings in the world that have earned a
Triple LEED Platinum rating. It has also achieved an Energy Star rating
of 99, an impressive achievement for this facility type and location.
The center evaluates new technologies on behalf of corporate clients,
equipment, and technology partners around the globe.
Capabilities include the ability to track an occupant from arrival on
site to departure, with real-time capability to adjust air quality,
temperature, light, audio, and visual capabilities based on movement
throughout the environment. CBRE|ESI uses an advanced integration and
analytics platform to securely gather and analyze data from sensors,
various building systems, meters, and other devices. Best practices for
network security and internet-of-things (IoT) design are showcased
throughout the facility.
CBRE|ESI’s CEC also demonstrates the tangible results of cost reduction
and environmental stewardship clients can achieve. The center itself
performed 41% more efficiently than design models had projected. It also
eliminated 223 tons of CO2 (equivalent of consuming 25,000
gallons of gasoline) in the building’s first year of occupancy.
“The smart building process, expertise, and technology within CBRE|ESI
create tremendous value for both individual facilities and global
portfolios,” said Bill Concannon, CEO of CBRE’s Global Workplace
Solutions. “We provide transparent assurance to our clients that their
facilities are operating efficiently and optimally through the right
combination of people, process and technology, while simultaneously
enhancing the workplace experience for their clients and occupants.”
By opening the CBRE|ESI headquarters space to clients as an experience
center, CBRE seeks to show building owners and occupiers how the blend
of intelligent design, advanced technology, proactive operations
planning, and strategic maintenance protocols can be applied to achieve
optimal facilities performance.
CBRE|ESI, whose mission is “smarter buildings, smarter workplaces,” was
founded in 1986 and was acquired by CBRE in 2015. It employs 70
engineers, designers, developers, and data scientists who provide
solutions for building automation, systems integration, security, life
safety, energy services, and building operations. Originally operated as
a stand-alone service line within CBRE, the market demand and client
interest of Smart Buildings has prompted the company to integrate
CBRE|ESI services into the firm’s Global Workplace Solutions enterprise
facilities management offering.
