Cadenza, Earlsfort TerraceSmart Buildings
Civil Structural Engineers
Intercom’s ambition is to attract and retain premium talent by providing an amazing place to work, with the building adapting to the users’ needs and desires, providing a sublime user experience in real-time in a highly automated smart building ecosphere.
The Cadenza is Intercom’s flagship commercial office, occupying a 10’500m2 seven-story development standing over two basement levels, situated at a prime location in Dublin’s city centre.
Ethos’s digital design and advisory group were commissioned to develop the Intelligent Building solutions that would deliver a sublime experience to the building’s end-users, FM, workplace, and management teams.
Using our Place-activation UX design approach, inputs were collated from the landlord and base-build teams, MEP designers, architects, and client teams (users, operations, FM, and IT) to develop the technology foundation that would fully realise our client’s all-inclusive ambitions.
Consisting of an underlying ICT infrastructure, an IoT sensor layer, on-prem middleware, an off-premises data layer, and an analytics engine, the technology foundation serves to drive out the building integrations established through our collaborative UX design outcomes, with control and connectivity blended into a single interface in the form of a workplace mobile app supporting the enhanced user and operational experiences.
Our technical project management service included a base-build gap analysis, technology assessments, and management of all stages of the construction process, through to post-completion building tuning.
