Changing buildings by building change

Maximising Building Performance

Creating new ways of working through connected experiences across the built environment.

Acutro will revolutionise the archaic FM industry and drive it forward into the digital age.

In order to achieve this Acutro will demonstrate the flaws in legacy operating models and guide its user base across the commercial real estate sector through our innovative onboarding processby working with progressive peopleadopting our Internet of Everything Platform technology

Carbon Footprint

Climate change, net-carbon targets and ESG pressures are forcing landlords and occupiers to challenge their supply chain to do more on the topic when managing real estate.
54% of total energy is wasted across commercial real estate.
There is a lack of reporting on consumption at a granular level to understand the distribution of energy.
Lack of knowledge how to sustainably reduce energy profile without significant capital investment for upgrades.

Maintenance Resource

COVID has accelerated digitization and remote working. Landlords are exploring ways to optimise operational costs to maintain the buildings to survive.
Planned Preventative Maintenance is still point-in-time risk control subject to human error.
Over 1/4 of an annual commercial property’s service budget is spent on contracted and reactive maintenance services.
A large proportion of repairs are delivered by specialist supply chain, increasing annual reactive expenditure.

Lifecycle Costs

Relative to both energy consumption and maintenance, there’s a lifecycle cost to consider for high-level assets. A landlord’s annual budget is under more scrutiny than ever with companies WFH.
Quantifying the lifecycle of a high-level asset is a point-in-time human survey prone to error.
The cost of asset failure is 3-4 X higher than the cost of a proactive replacement/fix.
Replacement of high-value assets is often expensive, resource intensive to plan and deliver often delivered by 3rd party subcontractors.

Introduction

Acutro specialise in property performance, powered by its unique Internet of Everything (IoE) Platform for the retrofit market across Commercial Real Estate.

Focusing on never-before-seen data insights striving for a better way to manage the built environment.

Definition

IoE is the networked connection of people, process, data, and things. 


The benefit of IoE is derived from the compound impact of connecting people, process, data, and things, and the value this increased connectedness creates as “everything” comes online.

1

Energy Optimisation

Optimise the distribution of energy across a site 24/7 to achieve sustainability goals and reduce energy usage and associated costs.

2

Comfort
Reporting

Report and improve comfort levels across the site to understand how space is utilised by the occupier and how we can optimise to derive savings.

3

Data-Driven Maintenance

Benchmark performance of critical devices and equipment providing insight into supressing or decelerating specific maintenance tasks and schedule to realise cost savings.

4

Lifecycle
Analytics

Quantify asset lifespan through AI to make more strategic decisions on forecasting asset replacement and projects.

Maintenance Expenditure

Difficult to forecast reactive maintenance spend due to the very nature of the tasks. COVID has accelerated digitization Landlords are challenging supply chain to optimize operational costs to maintain the buildings to survive.
The cost of asset failure is 3-4 X higher than the cost of a proactive replacement/fix.
Over 1/4 of an annual commercial property’s service budget is spent on contracted and reactive maintenance services.
A lot of repairs are delivered by 3rd party supply chain, increasing annual reactive expenditure.

Supply Chain Management

Supply chain requests are typically managed by a Contracts Manager per account who manually engages with a network of subcontractors and contacts for the Account.
Systemic issues on procurement of services in FM, based on backchannel relationships and historic reputations.
The time it takes to assemble an assortment of quotes for a maintenance job and award can often take weeks depending on size of the job.
Contract Managers are a fixed cost per Account.

Delivery Quality

The procurement model in FM is often a race-to-the-bottom on price which can breed a lack of quality on maintenance delivery.
Lifecycle of FM maintenance contracts are higher performing at the beginning and end of contracts. Contractors become complacent.
Contractors are incentivized to generate reactive and project revenue so not always looking out for clients’ best interest.
Replacement of high-value assets is often expensive, resource intensive to plan and deliver often delivered by 3rd party subcontractors.

Introduction

A digital Platform that creates opportunities for both clients and subcontractors within the real estate value chain.

It is commoditising the FM service delivery model powered by cloud computing applications. It is an ecosystem where contractors and subcontractors can dynamically bid for maintenance works.

Vision

Acutro wants to replicate the success of tech leaders following the trends of ‘Uberisation’.
Its core proposition is to streamline efficiencies with quicker decision-making, optimising maintenance resource and expenditure while creating greater transparency in procurement of services.
There is a social aspect at the heart of the solution that promotes fair trading to break systemic issues within the industry around the awarding of contracts.

1

Better Value for Maintenance

Competitive bidding nature on Marketplace will drive more competitive pricing, availability, delivery quality as the subcontractor feedback rating is dependent on good performance.

2

Virtual Contract Managers

Marketplace will deliver the same outputs of a Contract Manager by providing more information, quicker turnaround, full audit trail on dynamic decision-making and a cost-effective way to manage supply chains.

3

Quicker Decision Making and Repairs

The end-to-end process of fault detection to resolution will take days as opposed to weeks in the real-world scenario.

4

Fair and Ethical Trading

Contracted services will be procured based on merit and value. Creating an exciting ecosystem of opportunity for supply chains, making you the contractor of choice to clients and subcontractors.

Architecture

Differentiators

As a PropTech Partner:

Subject Matter
Expertise

The majority of the core team have an engineering background and experienced problems faced first-hand by living and breathing FM.

Seamless
Delivery

Acutro manages the end-to-end implementation process from design and provision of its own or 3rd party hardware to installation on site. Proficient in building data solutions across your property.

Pricing

Acutro deploys a simple and inexpensive price per sq ft model to reinforce the mission of creating easy-to-deploy, but enterprise-class solutions.

Integration and Data Control

Acutro provides integration with any operations systems across a landscape and will ingest the data as efficiently and non-intrusively as possible.

As an IoE vendor:

Asset Performance Indexing

Index performance of assets based on pre-defined logic and AI models. The indexed performance will create interventions to suppress, decelerate or accelerate planned preventative maintenance tasks.

Fault Diagnostic analytics

Fault detection models triggering a ‘feedback loop’ mechanism to classify any fault events with a fault code and resolution. ML allows this to become suggestive as it accrues more data.

Lifecycle
Analytics

Leverage IoT & CAFM data to quantify real-time lifecycle metrics associated with each asset through algorithms. Incorporate analytics layer to automate workflows to instruct the user on whether to prolong asset life or replace asset.

Bi-Directional
Control

Acutro Lens appliance that can natively read/write data back to OT and HVAC control systems across the built environment.

Never-before-seen
Marketplace App

Live bidding platform to commoditise live reactive maintenance jobs through an AI-driven cloud platform.

How it works

A property’s service charge captures the annual operating costs.
Most Landlords & Property Managers adhere to RICS’ Commercial Service Charge model.

Before

80% of a property’s annual spend is made up of Hard Services, Soft Services & Utilities

After

Reduced the annual service charge by up to 20%
