Detroit-based real estate technology company KODE Labs has been selected to provide the smart building operating system for a technologically advanced development in Austin, Texas.
RiverSouth property, which consists of more than 350,000 square feet of sustainable workplace, is being developed by QuadReal Property Group and Stream Realty Partners.
KODE’s Smart Building OS (operating system) will collect live data into a single pane of glass for operations to visualize, schedule, and coordinate in real time enabling smart scheduling, predictive analysis, and energy optimizations.
It also will serve as the centralized data platform that integrates all other IoT devices, allowing for data flow between various systems as required to best optimize building operations.
“We couldn’t be more excited to work with Stream and QuadReal to continue pushing the boundaries for buildings of the future,” says Etrit Demaj, co-founder and president at KODE Labs. “RiverSouth will set a smart building benchmark worldwide and we’re humbled to be part of the project team.”
RiverSouth’s 15-story building will provide a sustainable workplace for many tenants. Starting from green-building standards to wellness-building measures, it’s the joint goal of Stream and KODE Labs to build the smartest tenant-centered building in Texas.
“We are elated to be part of such a dynamic team, including KODE Labs, that maximizes a building’s potential for optimal user experience and well-being,” says Eric Herron, vice president of development and construction at Stream Realty Partners.
RiverSouth is expected to be completed in late 2021.
“Our goal is to create the most intelligent built-environments in the world,” says Thano Lambrinos, vice president of smart building technology and digital innovation at QuadReal. “We do that by leveraging advanced technologies to create unparalleled user experiences and drive operational efficiencies that optimize costs, improve our environment and create safe and healthy workplaces.”
In 2019, Demaj was selected as part of DBusiness magazine’s annual 30 in Their Thirties feature, which can be found here.
