Smart Building Show
Drax have just returned from a busy couple of days working alongside our technology partner at the Barbican Smart Buildings Show. It was the first event of this kind and very impressive. Jeremy Allen of Drax Services said, ‘The event was extremely well attended and Drax gained a lot of interest, especially regarding the latest technologies that are coming to market in 2018. We constantly seek to improve the way fire safety is managed and working alongside Drax Technology is a surefire way of achieving this.’


In 2016 the global market for automated and smart building services was worth over 30 billion US dollars. Monitoring activity within premises, especially large sites is one of the best methods of keeping people safe, prevention is undoubtedly better than a cure. Technology in fire safety is predominantly about analysing a site to ensure it is being managed safely, efficiently and the service and maintenance is of the highest standard. Transparency and consistency is vital in this industry which is why Drax created Iris back in 2008. Whilst Iris is constantly being updated for efficiency we also look externally for improved solutions and Smart Technology is a key player. The Drax Technology blog explores this in further detail.

With so many new contracts won, our recent expansion of premises, additional staff and continuation of best practices, attending the Smart Buildings Show was yet another way to cement our place in the future of fire safety. The Smart Buildings Show had an impressive list of exhibitors and speakers. Exhibitors included: Beckhoff, Distech Controls, enlight, Mitie, One Sightsolutions, RedstoneConnect, Sontay, Tridium and WAGO.

John Hatcher, Conference Director, said: "This is the most exciting smart buildings event to take place in the UK and we are pleased to be launching it at The Barbican, London. Bringing together technology vendors and suppliers with FMs, senior leadership teams and building owners under one roof and showcasing the possibilities of smart buildings."

If you attended the event and want to find out more or if you were unable for any reason do get in touch info@draxservices.co.uk. We will gladly carry out a site visit to demonstrate the solutions which are available and make the correct recommendations to improve the efficiency of your fire safety management.
