The Silicon Review
“Over the last decade, we have implemented and proven the benefits of composable smart buildings in over 300-million square feet of projects across 15 countries. Our mission is to make every building a composable smart building. Our promise is to deliver smart buildings 5x faster & 30% cheaper”
Spaceworx: A Composable Marketplace Composability is a desirable attribute that has been adopted for various technology sectors including data centers, cloud computing, and others. Composable solutions are created by assembling solutions from prebuilt, reusable components that can be combined like Lego. The components can easily be replaced by other components to enhance or modify the solution.
You can start small and enhance the solution progressively without trying to build a bespoke solution, which is complex, costly, time-consuming, and difficult to maintain.
According to Gartner, there are three key concepts that solution architects must follow when creating ‘composable solutions’: Composable thinking, composable architecture, and composable technologies.
Solution architects must have the right mindset. Solutions should be envisioned as “a collection of independent, autonomous, discoverable, components”. This approach allows the creation, enhancement, and replacement of the components independently.
Composable architecture is a structural requirement needed to support the assembly and hosting of the building blocks and delivering a digital service.
Composable technologies are the tools and technologies used in creating building blocks.
To enable its ‘Composable Smart Building’ strategy, the Spaceworx Marketplace offers a diverse range of prebuilt Smart Building components and, also, the ability to create new reusable components. This allows solution architects to quickly put together and enhance a solution by assembling and interchanging components.
Spaceworx is officially launching its Composable Smart Building Marketplace in October. The company’s mission is to make every building a composable smart building.
Spaceworx was co-founded by Eutech Group and DP Architects, a leading architectural practice in Singapore.
The Silicon Review reached out to Spaceworx ’s headquarters and spoke with Lakshita Wijerathne, who serves as the Chief Executive Officer of Spaceworx. Here’s what he said.
“Over the last decade, we have implemented and proven the benefits of composable Smart Buildings in over 300-million square feet of projects across 15 countries. However, rather than just selling technology, Spaceworx is seeking to reimagine and democratise the entire Smart Building value chain including design, implementation, and lifecycle management.”
Spaceworx will enable the real estate and construction industry to source and implement Smart Building solutions. It offers a diverse range of 1,000s of Smart Building products and services from global vendors that have been converted into the plug and play components. Integrators and even end-users can compose solutions using these components, drastically shortening implementation time.
“We believe that Spaceworx will spur the rapid adoption of smart buildings and accelerate the transition to a low carbon, hybrid economy.”
“All of our employees are encouraged to contribute their innovative ideas to build better products, services, technologies, and business processes. Their work towards innovation is formally recognized and rewarded as part of the performance appraisal system.”
Spaceworx: A Trusted Intermediary delivering 5x faster, 30% less costly Smart Building solutions
Spaceworx’s diverse ecosystem of Smart Building components include hardware products, software applications, hybrid hardware-software systems as well as services. The company has made these components composable so that they can plug and play with any other component from the ecosystem.
“We support procurement, implementation, and lifecycle management, giving you choice and convenience for the lowest cost. What is more, your Smart Building is future-proofed as you can easily swap technologies and products as your requirements change.”
“Spaceworx lets you start with experiential design, and then move seamlessly to the implementation. You can pick the features as well as the most suitable Smart Building components to achieve the experience and outcomes that you want. Moreover, you can assemble the Smart Building solution incrementally, modify it in real-time and test your assumptions.”
Spaceworx enables 5x faster implementation of Smart Buildings solutions, for 30% less than cost of conventional, bespoke solutions. The Spaceworx solutions pay for themselves by delivering quantifiable outcomes.
Whereas end customers can implement smart buildings with their teams, Spaceworx has a global network of partners who can support your efforts as well.
“We are confident that once you start the journey with Spaceworx, you will quickly understand the full potential of its groundbreaking technology. As such, we are offering a free trial version to get you started today.”
“Whether you are a landlord, tenant, product company, or integrator, we invite you to join our mission to make every building a composable smart building.”
