Siemens has signed a deal with Prodea Investments in Greece to install Building X, its AI-enabled digital building platform.

Prodea is one of the largest property companies in Southeast Europe, and will initially install the Building X AI-enabled smart building technology at its headquarters and the headquarters of Siemens Greece. The technology will be extended across Prodea’s real estate portfolio in Greece, as well as offering added value services to its tenants.

Building X, from Siemens Smart Infrastructure, is a scalable platform to digitalize, manage, and optimize building operations, allowing for enhanced user experience, increased performance, and improved sustainability. It is part of Siemens Xcelerator, the company’s digital business platform, enabling customers to accelerate their digital transformation easier, faster and at scale. 

Building X is a modular, fully cloud-based open platform, with AI-enabled applications, strong connectivity, and built-in cybersecurity, offers a seamless experience across all applications such as energy management, security and building operations.

This will enable Prodea to make decisions about the energy management of its building portfolio based on real data analytics and uses AI to identify areas of energy overconsumption and accurately predict the energy performance of its buildings based on live usage data.  

The aim is to proceed to the gradual connection of the big office buildings of its portfolio, as well as buildings for different use, such as logistics centres and hotels. Building X can be implemented in buildings of various sizes and connectivity requirements. 

“Prodea Investments is dynamically entering the era of the 4th Industrial Revolution by leveraging the high expertise of Siemens. It incorporates innovation while serving its strategy for more sustainable and user-centred buildings. This collaboration leverages technology as an accelerator of sustainability. It is a step that will contribute overall to the development of high -tech investments in the field of real estate,” said Dr Aris Karytinos, CEO of Prodea. 

 “We are delighted to embark on this partnership and co-creation with PRODEA Investments to accelerate their digital transformation with Building X. Siemens’ capabilities of connecting the real and digital worlds makes it a strong partner for companies looking to get the most out of their physical assets while addressing their decarbonization goals. We’re looking forward to close collaboration at the facility and engineering levels between Prodea Investments and Siemens, with the goal to ensure reduced energy consumption, sustainability and lower total cost of ownership for buildings, while improving portfolio valuation,” said Rahul Chillar, Head of Building X at Siemens Smart Infrastructure.
