Entic, a leader in IOT and smart building technology, has been selected by Willis Tower to deliver increased operational efficiency and utility savings to the iconic 110-story skyscraper at the heart of Chicago’s skyline. This deal marks the eighth engagement between Entic and Equity Office, bringing Entic’s enterprise-wide solution to more than 11 million square feet of the company’s global portfolio.
“We are excited to partner with Willis Tower and look forward to helping them adopt proven tools and practices that will drive significant savings,” said Carlos Diaz, Co-Founder of Entic. The company’s approach has documented portfolio-wide utility savings between 10 and 20% for clients such as Hilton Worldwide.
“As we reinvent Willis Tower, a major focus of our effort is to increase the building’s energy efficiency and reduce operating expenses,” said David Moore, SVP – Portfolio Director, Equity Office. “Conservation of resources and environmental responsibility are critical to our work as stewards of this historic skyscraper and as leaders in the real estate industry, We are excited to partner with Entic – an organization with a strong reputation among some of the most recognized businesses in the world.”
Standing 1,450 feet and 110 stories tall at 233 S. Wacker Drive, Willis Tower offers more than 4.5 million square feet of premiere office, retail, and entertainment space. In February, Equity Office announced a $500 million transformation of Willis Tower. Through the investment, Willis Tower will be reinforced as a civic destination and the city’s premier workplace, featuring unprecedented amenities and unique retail and entertainment experiences.
Entic’s best-in-class technology provides actionable operational and financial insights, in real-time, to help management achieve substantial utility cost reduction, year-round, despite ongoing construction and changing seasons.
