Abstract

Overview Living PlanIT is a technology company focussed on delivering platforms which accelerate and optimize the delivery of Future Cities. Deployed in association with an extensive partner ecosystem, developers, building owners, and service providers use these platforms to envisage, design, manufacture, assemble, operate, service, maintain, and decommission buildings more efficiently, improving performance in terms of environmental, economic, and social sustainability. Additionally, the smart infrastructure deployed in these developments – specifically the Urban Operating System or UOS™ provides a platform for both economic growth and for adding capabilities to these cities on an ongoing basis through the development of value-add applications. Living PlanIT has its largest concentration of human resources at its base in Portugal, but has staff located also in the UK and the US. Living PlanIT currently employs just over 100 people and will accelerate growth in the second half of 2011. Projects Living PlanIT is at various stages of discussion with multiple cities and developments worldwide through both developers and governmental bodies, but three projects have been announced to date:  PlanIT Valley, Paredes, Portugal (led by Living PlanIT)  Wembley (led by Quintain, a Living PlanIT Property Development partner)  Greenwich Peninsula (led by Quintain) Living PlanIT is also in discussion with several parties with regard to deploying certain aspects of its technology at more limited scale, in most cases focussed on either energy or retail solutions. Partners Living PlanIT has over 1000 partners in its current pipeline and is closing on average 10 new partner deals a month with this rate increasing. Notable partners include Cisco, Microsoft, McLaren Electronics, Buro Happold, Gehry Technologies, Philips Lighting Systems, Fibersensing, University of Porto, and Ecotech. Living PlanIT promotes a partner-driven delivery model, for example:  With the exception of PlanIT Valley, Living PlanIT does not intend to be a real estate developer  Living PlanIT has no plans to enter the sensor manufacturing business  Living PlanIT in general does not intend to build the applications for future cities – just the application platform.
