November 6, 2017

By Nate Nilles

Here at Lucid, we’ve had the opportunity to work with multiple large companies to create a healthier, more energy-efficient world. Thanks to a new partnership with Cushman & Wakefield that was announced at this year’s CoreNet Global Summit in Seattle, we’re able to offer our insights on sustainability and energy intelligence to more people than ever before.

Cushman & Wakefield, a global leader in real estate services, has long been known for their commitment to deliver cutting-edge services that keep their clients’ building portfolios operating at peak efficiency. They’re taking that commitment a step further by utilizing BuildingOS to provide building management experts with a centralized platform to engage and manage energy and sustainability data.

“This collaboration combines Lucid’s outstanding technology with Cushman & Wakefield’s vast real estate and facilities expertise to improve building efficiency for our clients,” said Steven Quick, CEO, Global Occupier Services, Cushman & Wakefield.

With the partnership in place, Cushman & Wakefield’s clients will be able to:

  • Enhance sustainability across an entire portfolio
  • Quickly transform building operations data into performance improvements
  • Reduce operational costs
  • Drive occupant satisfaction while running an energy-conscious building

Those aren’t all the features available with the new partnership, but they’re some of the most noteworthy. To learn more, watch a short video that shows what Cushman & Wakefield clients will get out of this partnership.

Leveraging Existing Data

Cushman & Wakefield can now provide clients the ability to leverage existing data to unlock immediate value.

As any energy or building management expert knows, acting on data is difficult due to the amount of variables involved. The partnership with Lucid and Cushman & Wakefield allows professionals to easily identify operational patterns and outliers, which turns into quicker implementation of energy-saving tactics.

Centralized Data

Gary Graham, Director of Energy Management, Global Occupier Services, Cushman & Wakefield, says one of the things he’s most excited about is adding, “Data centralization, reporting, and analytics capabilities of Lucid’s BuildingOS to our energy and sustainability platform. This tool will enhance our professionals’ ability to identify opportunities to deliver on our client’s unique energy and sustainability goals.”

Data centralization is one of the prominent features of BuildingOS, and using it provides, “Robust energy and sustainability applications,” says Will Coleman, CEO, Lucid.

Lucid — and Cushman & Wakefield — will continue to innovate and improve upon their partnership. That, in turn, will create a greener, more sustainable world for all of us.
