Success Story

An award winning energy monitoring dashboard for Colliers International (WA)

Energy monitoring dashboard helps deliver cost savings to tenants.

Working closely with Colliers International (WA) we delivered an energy monitoring solution to meet office-specific requirements in best practice manners.

The dashboard tracks energy performance in real-time with regard to key metrics and pre-determined targets.

Hourly, daily, monthly and even annual data can be viewed from any mobile device and is a great tool to engage with employees, as well as demonstrate commitments and achievements to key stakeholders.

The dashboard played an important role in helping Colliers International (WA) achieve and maintain a 5 Star NABERS Energy Tenancy rating and consecutively winning CitySwitch National Green Office Program’s WA Best Office under 2000m2 Awards in 2016 and 2018.

On this basis, Colliers International Occupier services have developed their Indigo Live service offering to commercial office tenants.

Please contact Patrick Jeannerat if you wish to learn more about Indigo Live.
