A holistic view of smart buildings DNA

July 28, 2022
UL Solutions and StratusVue are teaming on smart building data transparency. The collaborators say the new partnership "helps create a holistic view of a building's DNA and enhances data-driven decision-making to improve the built environment."

Global applied safety science authority UL Solutions and StratusVue, a provider of cloud-based project management platforms for commercial construction projects, have announced StratusVue's "StratusLink powered by UL Solutions" brand, billed in a press release as "a partnership to further develop and integrate the companies' platforms to enable as-built data linking and management for construction information."

The statement said that StratusLink powered by UL Solutions will link construction as-built data to UL Solutions product and life safety data in UL Product iQ, the UL Solutions online location for certification information, and in UL SPOT, the UL Solutions database containing product sustainability information.

"Many factors are impacting the health of work environments," says Neil Lakomiak project management director of the Built Environment group, UL Solutions. "Creating a safe, smart and sustainable building is critically important as stakeholders — from tenants and staff to visitors — have placed a heightened importance on building health and wellness as a key factor in the gradual return to in-person work."

Lakomiak adds, "Reducing risk and cost associated with occupant health issues, while helping improve productivity and work environmental quality, can also help improve employee and occupant performance. It can also increase the value of a building and company while providing visibility into potential problems so they can be addressed early and with documented solutions. Through our partnership with StratusVue, we believe linking documents to products and plans creates a holistic view into a building's DNA and is the next step in data-driven decision making as it relates to improving the built environment."

StratusVue provides an integrated construction management platform that connects users with the information they need to succeed in construction and the built environment. The company says the platform has been developed "to help all users semantically understand unstructured data" via advanced machine learning and intelligence tools.

"In the built environment, it is critical to efficiently leverage and access data to help advance safe, smart and sustainable buildings," points out John Goecke, CEO at StratusVue.

He adds, "Linking asset information to built data with product safety and standards information will provide a better understanding of what is contained in a building. Linking information to UL Solutions presents a more holistic view of a building."

StratusVue's partnership with UL Solutions will provide information that will help enable safer buildings. "This, however, is just the tip of the iceberg," Goecke notes. "Our machine learning and deep linking will allow building owners and managers to access all their building documents in an intelligent and simple way for better, healthier buildings."
