Create a real sense of campus community
Power every aspect of your workplace experience with a digital platform tailored to the needs of your business park.
"Our aim is to make humans central to the process and build a real sense of community through the app. Equiem shares our vision – its team is open-minded, collaborative and forward-thinking."
(Former) Head of Smart Places
"Equiem has really helped us in three main ways. The first: communication. We’re now able to communicate to a wider range of occupants in our buildings. Second, it’s allowed us to activate our tenant amenity spaces much better. Third, it has allowed us to understand what our tenants' needs are, collect information from them about what they really want."
Vice President, Real Estate Services
"The Equiem platform has become even more important in finding ways to connect people without physical contact. These types of events are likely to develop fast as people will need more stimulus as parks and buildings become extremely quiet."
Director at JLL Property Management
"For office to survive in a post-COVID pandemic world, people have to feel safe. The way you feel safe is you communicate. You over-communicate. Equiem is one of the few out there that can provide that... We are firmly committed to Equiem because they are proven and we know they deliver."
Co-founder and CEO
"During the current (COVID-19) period, we have found Equiem has been a huge benefit, enabling us to ensure our all of occupiers are kept up to date with all relevant information they need."
Director and Head of Manchester & Leeds
"Through (Equiem), we have been able to share news, updates, resources and events easily as well as gain insights on what and how needs and behaviours have changed as the working dynamic has moved more towards home and flexi working."

Business parks case studies:
Create a sense of shared community
Our client, a large suburban office park, values the sense of community they’ve created on their campus. They wanted to make sure that their tenants had a voice in shaping that community.
Equiem created a piece of content on the client’s platform asking tenants what they wanted to see in their buildings. One of the suggestions was a “gratitude wall” where workers could express the things they loved most about their building. The onsite team created a digital space where workers could leave comments. These comments were then displayed in the lobby for everyone to read.
Today, whenever employees or visitors pass through the office park’s main lobby, they’re greeted with a visual reminder of the campus’ thriving community.
Based in the heart of Oxford city, this forward-thinking office park wanted to bring the way they manage their campus into the 21st century.
Using Equiem’s tenant app, they were able to bring all their processes across the business park under one platform – from visitor access and space bookings to eCommerce. We also equipped them with Equiem Smart, our integrated software-and-sensor solution powered by Metrikus that allows users and management to monitor building conditions.
Equiem supercharged the client’s site management while also allowing them to link their retail tenants to office workers with the platform’s eCommerce capability. Equiem Smart enabled the park to monitor the air quality and temperature in spaces around the site. Pivotally, it also enabled them to monitor population density, giving them a clearer picture of how their facilities and amenities are utilised.
Helping support ESG initiatives
This Massachusetts office park has some unusual tenants. Namely, the six-legged residents of their corporate beehives, kept onsite by Beverly Bees. There was only one problem: the bees weren’t getting the buzz they deserved.
Equiem created Building Info posts on the client’s tenant app to highlight the bees, ensuring that more users and visitors to the site were aware of them.
The result was a notable uptick in building info readership, and increased enthusiasm around the bees in the community. As one user noted, “Watching them in their own little world is such a nice break from the screens.”
