Boston Properties Adds IAQ Monitoring to Buildings Through Senseware IoT Platform
Sensitization announced that Boston Properties, Inc. (BXP) will implement Senseware’s solution for real-time indoor air quality (IAQ) monitoring across BXP’s portfolio as part of the company’s healthy building strategy. Senseware’s monitoring technology is the latest addition to BXP’s healthy building initiatives. BXP is the largest developer, owner and manager of publicly traded Class A office properties in the United States.
“As a leader in the development and operation of sustainable and healthy properties, we are excited to add real-time indoor air monitoring to our portfolio,” said Doug Linde, President of BXP.
“Our data-driven approach to operations, including IAQ management, will be informed by real-time objective metrics to ensure our buildings provide optimal conditions for our customers and employees.”
Exclusive partnership provides substantial IAQ monitoring to buildings
Since the onset of COVID-19, air quality in buildings has come under intense scrutiny from owners and occupants. This is part of a larger initiative by all landlords to improve the environmental quality of their buildings in the hope of bringing back tenants.
BXP selected Senseware’s IoT Platform after an extensive Request for Proposal (RFP) process. Senseware’s modular hardware and software architecture has been tailored to BXP’s IAQ monitoring needs, providing an adaptive and dynamic solution. Providing a customizable Internet of Things (IoT) platform, Senseware provides real-time assurance in areas impacted by ESG, including indoor air quality, energy efficiency, environmental monitoring and HVAC digitization .
With Senseware, BXP will add sensor data collection points in the building’s supply and return air ducts. Real-time air quality measurements from duct-mounted sensors, including carbon dioxide and fine particulates, will allow BXP to monitor the effectiveness of ventilation and filtration systems.
BXP has previously been recognized for its leadership in healthy buildings and global environmental, social and governance (ESG) initiatives, including being the winner of the 2020 Best in Building Health award by The Active Design Center. The addition of Senseware’s extensive environmental platform to its catalog of solutions further demonstrates its commitment to providing some of the safest and healthiest environments for its occupants.
“The science is clear that improved indoor air quality mitigates the transmission of infectious diseases, improves cognitive performance and contributes to the well-being of building occupants,” adds Ben Myers, Vice President, Sustainability, BXP . “Senseware’s added real-time indoor air quality monitoring capability is an extension of our commitment to integrating best practices and healthy building technologies that support operational excellence.”
