DUBAI, UAE, 21 December 2020: Netix Global BV, a SB Group International subsidiary specialising in vendor-neutral building automation solutions, said it has been awarded a contract by SAGA International Owners Association Management Services, a real estate management company with diversified investments and projects across the Middle East, to upgrade and integrate the operations and maintenance of Mazaya Business Avenue, in Dubai and comprising three towers.

According to Netix, Mazaya Business Avenue Jointly Owned Property is an existing patron of ODS Global, a sister company of Netix Global BV that offers integrated building management services. The new contract, Netix said, reflects SAGA International’s continued faith in SB Group International and its subsidiaries, during an inflexion point in the industry, marked by increased tech adoption and strategic partnerships.

Netix said the three towers, which are currently equipped with ODS Global’ BMS maintenance and automation systems, will undergo vendor-agnostic integration and consolidation of operational data, via its intelligent Integrated Command & Control Centre (iICCC). IoT-based integration of BMS and multi-OEM assets leads to improved services, reduced operational costs, optimal resource utilisation and exceptional performance, Netix said.

According to Netix, its iICCC process involves installation and integration of IoT- and AI-based smart devices, to enable:

  • Hands-on, centralised control over portfolio data and operations
  • Real-time analytics insights, to enable data-driven decision making
  • Preventive and predictive maintenance of critical assets like HVAC
  • Reduced dependency on vendors and OEMs
  • Programmability and interoperability, for new services

“The multifaceted challenges encountered by the commercial real estate industry during the pandemic have led to a focus on tech-enabled integration of building operations and management,” said Sanjeevv Bhatia, Chairman, SB Group. “Netix’s enterprise-scale platform will allow Mazaya Business Avenue Jointly Owned Property to maximize efficiencies and savings on its existing BMS infrastructure, while unlocking enhanced experiences for occupants.”

Samer Ganni, Managing Director, SAGA International Owners Association Management Services, reiterated the need for intelligent, insight-led building operations, saying, “Vendor lock-in and reactive maintenance of individual equipment are at odds with present-day circumstances, which demand responsiveness, remote capabilities and seamless interoperability.

“Our prior association with ODS Global, and a first-hand perspective on achievable outcomes, contributed to our decision to extend the partnership with the SB group International. We are looking forward to implementing an integrated and connected operational model, with the help of Netix Global.”
