The Edge Amsterdam – showcasing an exemplary IoT building

The Edge Amsterdam – showcasing an exemplary IoT building

This Mini-Project developed a case study of The Edge in Amsterdam, billed as the world’s smartest building, for the Centre for Digital Built Britain (CDBB). Developing the future of the digital built environment will require intensive study of a number of exemplars and The Edge, designed on Internet of Things (IoT) foundational principles by OVG Real Estate and PLP Architecture and completed in 2015, is seen as the most connected building to date. The Edge showcases the benefits of taking a Building Information Modelling (BIM) approach to asset design, construction and management. It is of particular interest in the context of the evolution to ‘operate and integrate’ that will enable the optimisation of organisational business services and socio-economic outcomes.
