Carbon Footprint and the Future of Construction and Ownership

Improved efficiency. Enhanced security. Safer work conditions. Lower costs and lower carbon footprints.

“Through a combination of big data and better design, the next generation of smart buildings will bring all these benefits and more. Right now, Tesseract is creating the technology that will usher in this new era for designers, builders and owners alike.” - John Boucard, CEO Tesseract Ventures.

The Tesseract Smart Space is an immersive cyberphysical room for collaboration and data visualization. Using touch screens, data enrichment, dimensional visualization and advanced processing that can organize huge amounts of data, the Smart Space allows architects, engineers and builders to visualize every aspect of their project — both in person and remotely.

With all the data in one place, the team can make better informed decisions using BIM models, site planning and zoning data, and more.

Tesseract’s Prism technology can make any construction project safer and more efficient. Using a network of unobtrusive wearables and sensors, Prism gathers data that can offer valuable insights into where improvements can be made across a project, driving efficiency in real time.

With Prism, workforce credentialing tracks time and labor costs, while enhancing security. Building safety rules and processes are monitored through the network, alerting management to issues before they happen. Sensors reveal the whereabouts of materials and equipment in real time, decreasing waste.

Every step of the way, Prism is learning from the process to improve financial and environmental outcomes.

Once the building is complete and the owners move in, Tesseract technology transitions from a temporary construction tool to Mosaic Atmos, a customizable smart building platform. Atmos uses advanced sensors and data visualization technology to audit the success of the building, providing ongoing insights for building control.

Mosaic Atmos uses Prism technology and third party sensors to analyze the efficiency of the built space, bringing in data on air quality, temperature, humidity, occupancy, power usage and more.

Armed with a holistic picture of what’s happening across the space, Atmos can make real-time adjustments to a building’s systems based on actual usage, saving energy and money.

Over time, the platform teaches the building to predict its own needs. Now it can get ahead of issues such as maintenance or wasted energy as it notifies owners of possible problems, and opportunities for savings.

For properties aiming to reach specific climate goals, this data can produce an accurate picture of the building’s carbon footprint, simplifying compliance.

Better data means better insights. Mosaic technology can illuminate system-wide impacts on efficiency and costs from across a group of buildings. That gives developers, designers, engineers and managers a chance to see the big picture, so they can learn how to better manage their existing portfolio, and make smarter, data-driven decisions as they plan future projects.

From design and construction, to ownership and planning for the future, Tesseract technologies are ushering in a new era of buildings that are smarter, more cost effective and more efficient than ever before.
