PROPTECH-X ‘Proptech & Property News’: Mace partners with Demand Logic to optimise one of London’s most futuristic buildings

  • Mace MEP has selected Demand Logic to deliver energy optimisation at HYLO, one of London’s most exciting new office buildings.
  • Demand Logic’s Building Analytics software identifies areas of inefficient control, signaling where energy usage can be minimised.
  • Technology will support Mace and contractors to ensure optimised performance throughout the commissioning process and prior to occupation. 

Mace, the global consultancy and construction firm, has selected Demand Logic to support them to deliver the energy and maintenance optimisation of one of London’s most exciting new buildings, HYLO. The refurbishment of a 1960’s building into a twenty-nine-storey landmark tower in London, boasts 270,000 sq ft of high-end mixed-use space, including 261,000 sq ft of premium office space on 28 floors and 17,000 sq ft of retail space.

Initially, Demand Logic’s market-leading insight will be utilised to support Mace and their contractors during the commissioning to ensure an optimised performance of the property before occupation and throughout fit-out periods as well as continuous monitoring.

Demand Logic has been working with Mace for over several years on various projects, where the business utilised Demand Logic’s award-winning building analytics software to improve maintenance, increase occupier comfort and identify areas for energy savings across Mace’s own corporate property as well as their client’s. This new project with Mace MEP furthers Demand Logic’s long-standing partnership with the group.

Chris Connelly, Operations Director – MEP (Construction):

“Demand Logic are assisting Mace MEP in the drive to reduce carbon emissions throughout the life cycle of our projects. The introduction of Demand Logic on HYLO is providing our team with interpreted data to allow inefficient control of the MEP system to be identified and remedied during commissioning ensuring energy usage is minimised. 

“In addition we have found the system provides a suitable overview of the BMS system commissioning allowing my team confidence when scheduling key activities.”

Regarding this new project with Mace MEP at HYLO in London, Mike Darby, CEO and Co-founder of Demand Logic said:

“We are pleased to be supporting Mace MEP on the commissioning of such an exciting project such as HYLO. We’re confident that through our platform we’ll be able to support Mace and their contractors to deliver an optimised property at the PC stage – utilising the market-leading insight of Demand Logic to proactively identify and resolve snags prior to occupation. It’s another strong collaboration and adds to HYLO as an exemplar low carbon iconic building.”

Recently, Demand Logic announced that they’re generating 1,042,343,671 monthly data values from across their entire portfolio. The new development at HYLO will add over 40m data points to the monthly ingested data, supporting the company’s goal to contribute to improving the energy efficiency across its partners’ buildings.

About Demand Logic: 

Demand Logic is a software tool which provides actionable intelligence to property managers and building contractors. It is intended to deliver quantifiable benefits in a short space of time and to make the management of buildings easier.  

For Property & Facility Managers, Demand Logic makes managing buildings easier. We provide insights to deliver better quality spaces at lower cost. The service uses live operational data to prioritise actions which fix faults, reduce energy and improve comfort. When Demand Logic is used as a collaboration tool in standard operating procedures then the property will run better and more profitably. 

For Construction & Development Managers, Demand Logic is used in commissioning and environmental testing to quickly identify defects. The holistic analysis of HVAC systems highlights a range of common faults in major plants as well as small equipment, such as terminal units. Using data intelligence has been shown to quicken this phase of construction and to ensure a soft landing for the building operation.
