Working Together

soprema-logo-min.jpeg

SMT Research has provided Quality Assurance on 200+ Soprema roofs in North America.

We believe that combining our innovative solutions with Soprema's reach will result in great things!  

OBJECTIVE
 

  • SMT as Soprema's preferred vendor in North America

  • Global Intellectual Property Partnership

The Future

Construction is booming like never before, with more "mega-projects" planned for every sector from; healthcare facilities and warehouses, data centres, shopping malls and more.
In order to properly monitor and manage these structures and their assets, we start with the building envelope.

SMT has been investing in, and developing Internet of Things connected sensors for over 15 years. Our vision is to implement a global system of sensors to monitor roofs and building envelopes, in order to compile performance data that will aid in extending the life cycle of those structures. We want to move forward with the next generation of buildings by reducing environmental impact, bolstering repair efforts, and limit risk for warranties or insurance.

We understand that Soprema was founded on the ideals of being daring, and pushing forward. Through a partnership with SMT, Soprema could leverage its global footprint in new and powerful ways, leading the building envelope industry into the future.

Data
Visualization

SMT's mission is to make the invisible, visible.

 

We put sensors in structurally integral sections of the building enclosure assembly, and actively monitor their performance - but how do we communicate this information? 

Analytics Dashboard

SMT's Analytics centre processes the data acquired from the building envelope. The results are easy to view at a glance, with sections for sensor distribution, local weather, most recent readings, and 2D drawings of the site with sensors overlaid.

The Red Lines show where SMT found moisture on a Soprema roof, assisted all stakeholders to move the project forward through repair and confirmation the issues were not common.

Augmented Reality 

Our proprietary software allows any user to view the live performance of their building enclosure in VR and AR. 

With AR, users can simply view their asset through their smartphone camera - and the placement and status of the embedded sensors will appear in real time.

Virtual Reality

Take a walkthrough of your assets without leaving your home! With SMT's VR functionality, easily view sensor data, and impress your clients!

Business Landscape

The AEC industry is playing catch-up as the rest of the world embraces technology... 

"Client demands are quickly rising and become more and more complex with expectations increasingly on the “usage” more than on the product itself"

- Oliver Wyman Consultants

Commercial Real-Estate owners are aware that their costs are rising, and technology holds the answer...

"Operating costs could increase by at least US$19.4 per square foot, which equals 5.8% of the average annual office rents at the beginning of 2020"
