February 7, 2023 – Planon Corporation and Gilbane Building Company today announced that they have formed a strategic alliance to serve the real estate and facility management market. The partnership will leverage Gilbane’s many years of experience in integrated construction and facility management services, and Planon’s global market-leading technology for smart building and workplace management solutions.
The partnership between Planon and Gilbane will enable organisations undertaking building construction projects to create end-to-end life-cycle maintenance plans, space allocations, asset registers, and other important operational management tools before a new facility is opened. Real estate owners and asset managers can benefit from the joint expertise of the two companies in developing and deploying their smart building and IoT projects.
‘Our partnership with Gilbane adds valuable perspective to the Planon ecosystem, giving clients a head start in adopting best-in-class building management and operations tools during the construction process,’ said Darlene Pope, President of Planon North America. ‘We believe the combination of Gilbane and Planon will bring our clients new opportunities for success in their increasingly complex facility management endeavours.’
Gilbane Regional President Paul Choquette echoes Pope’s enthusiasm for this unique partnership and looks forward to delivering the world’s most intelligent buildings for future owners and operators – from initial design and construction all the way through to occupancy and operations. ‘We are thrilled to be teaming with Planon, one of the world’s leading smart building management software products. Our technical consultants are excited for the opportunity to implement this world-class solution, and our entire FM Services team looks forward to combining our leading-edge IoT-based construction services with a software platform that services the life cycle of the building,’ he said.
