Making buildings smarter, more sustainable and more valuable. As an independent engineering firm specializing in technical advice and engineering, Deerns wants to achieve this with Digital Due Diligence: an assessment that Deerns uses to map out how smart a building is, taking into account all aspects of its construction. We had the challenge of building a web application which displays all input and data from the assessments in a user-friendly way.
Property owners need smart buildings to keep up with changing user requirements. Previously, Deerns employees performed a manual assessment of these buildings, using separate documents and difficult formulas in Excel. Conducting such an assessment was therefore quite time-consuming. We knew this could be smarter and faster.
To help Deerns engineers deliver Digital Due Diligence, we developed a web application that brings together the 90 questions from the assessment and associated data in one interface. At the back end, we did a lot of programming in terms of logic to make the process run smoothly at the front end. In this way, the assessment can be performed digitally (and therefore much more quickly) and the output is also immediately available to the customers in a well-arranged manner.
The collaboration went very well. Innovattic employs people who know exactly what they’re doing, and therefore work quickly. Partly due to the scrum process, we always saw how the process was going. Innovattic contributed ideas about the user-friendly design, the flow and the configuration of the backend. In a relatively short lead time, we created a first beta version that we tested together with employees and our customers. Based on the feedback, we've created a new, improved version. The product that Innovattic has delivered is very user-friendly and our engineers and customers are very happy with it.
