Cobblestone Uses Spaceti to Prevent the Spread of COVID19!

The Danish property management company aims to create a workplace in which their employees can fully unlock their brainpower while maximising their comfort.


Data-driven Management Can Help Fight the Coronavirus

Expectations & Project Specification

• The company refurbished their office 3 years ago and installed a new natural ventilation system. 80% of Cobblestone’s office is ventilated naturally by opening and closing windows. The office lacks any air conditioning except for central meeting rooms. Also, during wintertime, the employees forcibly closed the windows, leading to very high CO2 levels which led to decreased productivity of employees.
• Employees often reported stuffy indoor environments.
• The goal was to maximise productivity of employees since salary costs are the largest operational expense for Cobblestone and similar organisations.
• The management was looking for a tool which would increase utilisation, comfort, and value of assets.

Why Spaceti

• The Central BMS system was insufficient because it only measured data at one point, and the data was often hidden and fragmented. The Spaceti solution provides much more granular and transparent data as opposed to traditional BMS systems.
• Spaceti democratises data by also giving employees a chance to check the air quality around them and report it to facilities management teams.
• It gives tenants the power to have data-driven conversations with landlords.

Results of the Cooperation

• The smart window system was not opening and closing windows at the right times, leading to high variations in air quality across the workplace. Through the data and analytics collected by the Spaceti solution, the management was able to find out that their natural ventilation system had some inherent limits that were lower than expected.
• Nowadays, via Spaceti solution the employees are able to see high levels of CO2, temperature, or humidity in any meeting, can take a pause to improve the air quality, reconsider their working environment a adjust a meeting accordingly.
• The new Spaceti solution brought noticeable improvements in the productivity of employees and lowered the number of complaints about air quality.
• The company implemented a modern tool for advanced facility management.
