the behaviour of buildings and working together for a responsible real estate.
Created in 2015, iQspot is first and foremost the result of a meeting between two engineers. Two PhDs convinced that technology can serve great ecological ambitions, especially in the real estate sector, which is responsible for 40% of energy consumptions and 20% of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Facilitating and enhancing the value of consumption reductions in buildings for tertiary use quickly becomes the central project.
This project will soon bring together other profiles, equally convinced that the path towards sobriety can be facilitated by ingenious solutions, provided they are simple to use.
Profiles with complementary skills, in fields as varied as ethical design, social and developmental robotics, instrumentation, algorithms.
Men and women also experienced in the implementation of CSR policies, environmental certifications and labels, in customer relations, real estate fund management or building operations.
A team entirely devoted to controlling real estate consumption, with à central requirement: developing solutions that are technically reliable and easy to use, and in a general spirit of humility.
By offering viable, simple and turnkey solutions to its clients, iQspot is simply proud to contribute, to its measure, to the necessary real estate energy transition.
