CDC Expands into Unitied Arab Emirates

CDC has expanded its international presence with the opening of offices in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Headquartered in London, UK, CDC has increased its global presence to meet the growing demand for easy-to-use, cost-effective technology that enables intelligent and green buildings. Through its Integra Intelligent Building Framework solution, CDC can take advantage of this growth and deliver a complete integrated building management system.

In UAE, CDC will be based in Dubai. Together with locally based associates, Fredrik Ostling will be responsible for building on the already successful partnerships in the area, aiming to establish CDC's Integra solution as the default choice for a comprehensive, state-of-the art intelligent building enabler. CDC is already working on projects such as Qatar Convention Centre and New Doha Airport in the region.

The Integra Intelligent Building Framework was created by CDC and is the first ever IP-enabled integrated building management system, helping organisations to realise the full potential of IP convergence to control, monitor and optimise the built environment.

Integra provides an out-of-the-box software interface between building management systems and the IP infrastructure. The Integra interface uses IP as the common translator between many different inherent building systems, acting as the aggregator of information in a common format. As a result, Integra facilitates easy management and monitoring of single or multiple building services, in real-time via a single, easy to use management console. It provides comprehensive audit trails and also supports the management of maintenance contractor performance.
