In order to meet the increasing demands of the entire real estate market and to optimally use and develop real estate from its creation to its operation and management over its entire life cycle, integral information and communication systems are becoming increasingly important.
As an independent Swiss consulting company and expert in IT and control technology, AWK guarantees the successful use of ICT for your real estate.
Today, IT and control technology are subject to complex demands. This should be convenient to operate, economical to use and flexible, have as little impact on the environment as possible and be available at all times.
Thanks to modern information and communication technology (ICT), technical systems in buildings are increasingly networked and can be easily operated from outside.
ICT is increasingly being used for technical building equipment and energy management as well as for the maintenance and security of real estate. Networking these disciplines requires an integral approach. Only those who are familiar with the different technologies and their interrelationships can build an efficient system that sustainably meets the demands of the various building users.
How we can assist you:
Our consultants support you in the implementation of integral projects with their methodical and technical competencies and ensure that these are successfully implemented in the interests of the users. You can rely on our many years of experience in strategy development and process optimization, sourcing decisions and project management.
The customers who count on our support are just as diverse as the tasks associated with the operation and management of their properties. Depending on your specific requirements, you can call in our consultants as experts or project managers. By supporting your project managers on site, we can respond even more directly to your needs and thus maximise the benefits achieved.
