Five years after The Edge: “world’s most sustainable office building”
The future of work is one of our favorite topics to read and write about. But sometimes it’s good to take a step back, and see how far we’ve come. And in the smart office world, we’ve already come a long way. So, let’s rewind back to December 2014. Mapiq existed of only six employees – a lot less employees than today. Six employees, ready for the project that made us fly: The Edge of Deloitte.
A smart office that supports employees
Deloitte wanted to test the limits on what was possible with smart technology. Turns out: a lot. And although there is already much said about this building, it is sure to say that it has been the pioneer in the history of smart offices. The building, The Edge, is high-tech and self-sufficient, located in Amsterdam’s business district. Together with partners such as Edge Technologies, Avex, Signify and Vecos, we created a smart office that supports the employees of Deloitte in their daily office life. And with success. The Edge was named the most innovative and sustainable building in the world and has been awarded the highest BREAAM score ever recorded.
The benefits of the office
But not just the headlines were praising. Many news websites mentioned the benefits of the building, such as the individual regulation of light and temperature, how employees can find workspaces that fit their needs and the collection of data.
This month we’ll celebrate the five year anniversary of The Edge with a video and an interview. Sign up for our newsletter to stay up to date!
