The building contains thousands of sensors
that are connected to a centralised Accenture
owned IoT platform, which helps people in the
building understand how it is being used, and
how they can navigate the space and
collaborate with colleagues.  

The building also serves as a model that
can be applied to connected spaces across
the globe, from airports and stadiums, to
hospitals and much more.
