The project category finalists for the 2018 InAVation Awards were announced today, and we’re very pleased to announce that Vanti have been shortlisted in the Education Facility category for our work on Birmingham City University’s Royal Birmingham Conservatoire.
Anyone who knows Vanti knows how much we love supporting innovative tech work and our local community, so when an opportunity recently came up to host the amazing Rebel Makers in our new office, there was no way we were going to say no.
Technology has come a long way in the past decade. The huge leaps forward in wireless communications in particular have paved the way for what we’ve come to know as ‘Smart’ spaces, with wifi, 4G, Bluetooth, and RFID enabling processes that we’d have written off as sci-fi not too long ago.
We love supporting exciting events that take place in our home city of Birmingham, which is why we’re so pleased to be sponsoring TEDxBrum – a day-long event that provides a platform for some of today’s most inspired thinkers.
Vanti are one of the UK’s leading proponents of Smart building, so we often talk to people about the huge benefits integrated technology can bring to organisations and individuals. To us, it seems obvious: Smart buildings use tech to create more efficient and effective environments that improve productivity, wellbeing, and profitability.
We are incredibly pleased to announce that Vanti have been selected as one of the inaugural Innovation 50! The index has been collated by top UK law firm Mills & Reeve LLP, and was created to celebrate and promote the region’s 50 most innovative companies across a range of sectors.
Earlier this year, James McHale of (the brilliant) Smart building research company Memoori wrote a LinkedIn post entitled ‘The Need for Real Human Experiences in our Smart Cities and Buildings’.
