Planned approach and implementation

The project had a steering group and a working group. The working group has identified needs, technical systems and developed strategies for implementation that the steering group has since approved. The project has required the involvement of external parties who have designed the existing building control systems in the buildings, as well as expertise from KTH´s IT department. Two project managers, one from KTH and one from Schneider Electric, have driven the project forward, in collaboration with all other project partners.
