Siemens has announced that it will control the world’s first office building, produced through the 3D printing technology, which is 6.096 meter high and 36.6 meter long, according to a press statement.

The building was erected near the Emirates Towers in Dubai. It is equipped with access control and surveillance systems, by Siemens, and is integrated into a central building management platform.

“We are proud to be participating in this pioneering project and supporting Dubai’s Smart City strategy by providing state-of-the-art technology for intelligent, digitalized building automation and controls,” said CEO of the Siemens Building Technologies Division, Matthias Rebellius.

The key components of the office building are integrated with the help of Siemens’ Desigo CC building management platform, to enable the control and optimization of the building’s technical infrastructure, surveillance, air conditioning and access control systems from a central location.

“Integrating key functions into an intelligent building management system has clear safety, cost and efficiency benefits, and Siemens is a leading company able to combine the management of all building disciplines in one integrated platform,” continued Rebellius. “Desigo CC gives building operators a precise overview of their assets, not only allowing them to be managed more efficiently and transparently, but also ensuring flexible usage and energy conservation.”
