The SBA has indeed given itself the mission of weaving a transversality that allows the different actors of the building to exchange upstream taking into consideration the major issues that are the digital, but also the environment and sustainable development.

Openfield becomes a member of the Smart Building Alliance (SBA).


The Smart Building Alliance (SBA), a unifying approach for Smart Building in the Smart City

Energy, environmental, technological, demographic and urban transitions are as many challenges as opportunities for action for the actors of the cities of tomorrow. These issues highlight the importance of developing smart urban systems that will make the transition to a smart and sustainable city possible …

The building, center of life, is at the heart of this transition. The building is expected to meet global collective and individual needs. How? By offering varied and adapted services, by opening up to the stakes of the Smart City, while remaining evolutionary to answer the future innovations. An example ? Every occupant must have access to the devices that enable him to retrieve his data in real time, in an individualized manner. It must be able to act in real time in case of leakage or to influence its power consumption if it finds overconsumption.

The user must be able to act, for this he must have interactive tools, open, and designed for intuitive use.

Structuring the Smart Buildings Market

The SBA brings together the entire Smart Building ecosystem and offers stakeholders in the sector the opportunity to harmoniously integrate new technologies, enable the development of new services, optimize the use of resources (particularly energy), and to increase the use value and the financial value of the building’s assets.

To do this, the development of Smart Buildings involves cooperation between 3 technical divisions with different business logic:
• The world of equipment manufacturers and building control
• The world of IT, Telecom and software
• The world of energy and flow infrastructure

This triptych, which unites the providers of solutions around the concept of smart building, must in turn dialogue with the historical stakeholders of the building world:
• Designers (Developers, Promoters, Architects, Design Offices, …)
• Builders (General contractors, integrators, installers, …)
• Operators (FM, Services, …)

Openfield is proud to be a member of the Smart Building Alliance.
Since 2013, we have been offering solutions for collecting, analyzing and reporting data to connected places. Openfield’s business has historically been developed in the sports, retail and exhibition parks sectors, evolving more recently within the resorts, then connected buildings and cities.
Our approach is primarily nourished by a business vision, ethical and responsible data of our customers, thus giving them levers of optimization from the design to the exploitation of their places, but also offering a technological framework which favors a relation mutually beneficial between the occupant (nomadic or sedentary) of these places and its environment.

This approach positions us naturally as the digital engine of our customers.

It is in this context that OPENFIELD naturally joined the SBA to bring its expertise, but also to exchange with all members of the association on the current and future development of the SMART Building in France and beyond.

Some numbers :

  •  25 billion connected objects in 2020 (Source IDC)
  •  216 billion: economic impact of the Internet of Things in the building in 2022 (source sogeti consulting)
  • 60% of the world’s population will be urban in 2030 (UN report June 2012)
  • 66% of global energy consumption in 600 cities (UN report June 2012)
  • 44% of total energy consumption in the building – 1st item of expenditure (ADEME – Key figures of the building 2012)
