An award-winning software engineer at Scenariio has completed a research paper, which outlines the benefits smart building technology can provide.

The research, carried out by Jack Hall, in partnership with Nottingham Trent University, has now been submitted to the International Conference on Energy and Sustainable Futures 2022.

His research, entitled “The Analysis of Sensory Data from Smart Office Environment Towards the Development of an Intelligent System”, uses data taken from Scenariio’s offices at The Chocolate Factory over the last five months.

Data included occupancy, humidity, CO2 and light levels and temperature.

According to Scenariio, smart technology is set to play a major role as businesses prepare their workplaces for the post-pandemic world and legislation increases to contribute to carbon neutrality.

The firm said that efficiencies it provides can help drive cost and energy savings, while increasing staff wellbeing and productivity.

The submission of the research follows Jack’s recent win at East Midlands Chamber’s Generation Next Awards, where he scooped the Sustainability Award.

He was recognised for his development of a fully customisable platform that takes building sensor data and converts it into user-friendly information that helps to make businesses more sustainable and efficient.

The dashboard, called Insiight, was launched in the spring and is receiving a lot of interest from businesses keen to understand how their buildings work and the impact environmental conditions have on their workforce.

Rob Pritchard, managing director at Scenariio, said “After getting the recognition Jack deserved for his work at the Next Gen Awards, we are extremely proud that he has now submitted his research for consideration with Nottingham Trent University.

“The usability of Insiight, the data it produces and the impact it has, demonstrates why smart building technology can be so important in helping businesses to achieve their sustainability, wellbeing and efficiency aims.”

As a key component of how Scenariio demonstrates smart building performance, Jack will continue to develop the potential of Insiight, working with customers to give them the right data in the right format.

Jack said “It’s been a brilliant couple of months as the result of lots of hard work has started to come to fruition.

“As we move out of the development stage of Insiight and towards implementation with some of our key clients, I am looking forward to exploring the full capability of the dashboard and helping more businesses to be smarter, more sustainable and more focussed on wellbeing.”
