Proximus and BESIX Group, the largest Belgian construction Group announced a strategic partnership to co-create innovative solutions and deliver a superior end-user experience in the area of Smart Buildings.

In the construction business, applying the concept of Smart Buildings translates into applying a layer of innovative solutions on top of existing or new infrastructure or buildings. In this context, Proximus and BESIX want to propose Smart Building solutions in four areas - Hospitality, Working Environment, Building Efficiency & Insights and Safety & Security – while putting the end-user experience at the center of their ambitions.

As part of the engagement, BESIX Group and Proximus will now join forces along two tracks. On the one hand, teams of both companies will start the actual implementation of solutions for Buildings and Infrastructure through identified projects whereby the first Smart buildings arising from this partnership can be expected before summer 2019. At the same time there will be a strategic co-creation analysis with a set of joint events.

The spirit of this partnership is to operate in an open framework where further collaboration with other partners, like start-ups, is possible to guarantee the best solutions to clients.

Rik Vandenberghe, CEO of BESIX Group
Proximus is known for their strength in smart end-to-end solutions, and the partnership with them offers strong support for the development of smart technologies focused on client centricity.

Dominique Leroy, CEO Proximus Group
Combining new technologies like IoT and AI into new digital solutions, will allow owners to run their buildings more efficiently and to enhance their comfort level, as from their inception.
