Digitalisation: The use of AI in facility management of public buildings

Date: 27 May 2021

Time: 09.00-10.30

Proper facility management of public buildings is a challenge in itself. Having ambitious sustainability targets at the same time, calls for an innovative system. SISAB, The Stockholm School Properties Company, has developed SOLIDA, an AI operating system. The system controls, optimizes and analyzes properties in real time using algorithms. The work has resulted in good effects on the indoor environment and the economy.

SISAB’s ambitions do not end here. They want to further develop SOLIDA, to improve its results even more. According to Mats Carlqvist, project owner of SOLIDA:

‘I believe that SOLIDA will in the future manage climate and energy consumption to trim all our properties and automate fault reports to our operating contractors. I also believe that in the future our operations staff will come to the office in the morning, look up their computers and be met by SOLIDA who tell me that I have done this and these tasks you need to help me with today. And that in the future SOLIDA can tell the operating staff about what is becoming an anomaly or a fault in the property, and which people they need to contact to either have something replaced or repaired.’’

In order to reach this goal, SISAB looks for innovative companies to further develop SOLIDA with. Do you offer products or services in the realm of:

  • Sensoring
  • AI
  • Facility management
  • Climate control
  • Proptech
  • HVAC
  • Indoor climate

Then this session is for you!


Plenary session (45 mins)

  • Welcome
  • Introduction of SISAB 
  • Presentation of SOL and SOLIDA: Niklas Dalgrip, operations manager from SISAB
  • Presentations of Schneider Electric & Myrspoven, companies who are currently working with SISAB on SOLIDA.
  • Presentation of Dutch expert  

Breakout rooms (45 mins)

  • “Technical” breakout room – led by Niklas Dalgrip

During the technical breakout session, we go deeper into the technicalities behind SOLIDA, what the future of the system looks like, and how it can be improved further.

  • “Procurement” breakout room – led by Magnus Colling, CPO SISAB

During the procurement breakout, we dive into everything you need to know about the procurement process for doing business with Swedish public parties such as SISAB.



SISAB - The Stockholm School Properties Company

SISAB owns and develops 600 preschools, compulsory schools and upper-secondary schools in Stockholm. Every day, around 200,000 people spend time in our 1.8 million square metres of educational facilities.

SISAB was founded in 1991 and is owned by the City of Stockholm. The company is a part of a corporate group with 16 active companies where Stockholms Stadshus AB is the parent company. 97 per cent of our portfolio is let out for educational purposes, mainly to the City of Stockholm.

In addition to maintenance, SISAB has extensive rebuilding activities as well as some new construction. Our investment budget amounts to € 2.5 billion.

For seven years, SISAB has used sensors in the properties to be able to control them in real time with the SOL control and monitoring system. There was a slowness to control in real time and the AI ​​project SOLIDA was started with the aim of searching for technology that allows to control the regulation in a smarter way. The AI ​​platform SOLIDA started as a pilot in early 2019 and in January 2020 the system was put into operation. One million values ​​are collected daily from our temperature meters and CO2 sensors.

SISAB is the first real estate company to control the climate and energy savings of properties via AI. Thousands of temperature meters and CO2 sensors have been connected to SOLIDA, which has led to smarter control of the indoor climate in the properties. The system, which was commissioned in January 2020 on 50 properties, has approximately 20,000 sensors around our schools.
