Bruntwood Works has officially launched Manchester's "smartest workplace" at 111 Piccadilly as part of its £50million 'Pioneer' transformation programme.
The workplace, which has been described by the firm as the city's most tech-enhanced office, features a 'central nervous system', a new lighting system that replicates the body's 24-hour cycle and smart tech platform designed to connect a physical space with its people, processes and systems using data to enhance user experience.
The workspace is also equipped with sensors to monitor space utilisation, air quality and energy usage in a bid to help reduce waste and improve operational efficiencies.
Andrew Cooke, strategic director at Bruntwood Works, said: “The cutting-edge technology we’ve introduced at 111 Piccadilly will transform the building and its environment for the benefit of the people within it.
"By collating real-life data about how and when the building is used we will be able to provide an even better customer experience, and ultimately create more efficient and sustainable workspaces.
“The transformation of 111 Piccadilly has also completely rewritten the rule book for refurbishments and proves smart tech is not just the domain of new builds.
"Our team has created a blueprint for redeveloping existing assets to create workspaces of the future and that’s something they should be proud of. I can’t wait to welcome our customers back to the smartest building in Manchester.”
