Smarter, more efficient buildings in under two hours
Verdigris works with businesses to help them understand the finer detail of their energy usage and identify ways to reduce wastage. Our product design team (formerly MATTER Global) partnered with Verdigris and Mindtribe Product Development to design an easy-to-install, first-of-its-kind power management system for building managers. We were asked to define a visual brand language for the hardware, help improve the installation process and define a glanceable on-product user interface.
Using a series of small, easily-installed sensors, the system measures circuits’ amperage and voltage, showing building managers exactly how their power is being used in real time. The data is sent to the cloud and aggregated into weekly and monthly reports on a user-friendly, instinctive dashboard accessible online.
When companies can see when and where power is being used, it’s easy to expose waste and inefficiency, potentially saving them significant money. Verdigris clips directly onto building mains, distribution panels and branch circuits, and can be easily installed by an electrician in under two hours. We enhanced the installation process by reducing the number of essential steps and by carefully redesigning the best way to organize the necessary electrical cables.
We designed the hardware’s visual language to reflect its environment, using a series of gray tones from metallic tones found on conduit to slate tones found within concrete.
Verdigris has been installed in some of the world’s most high-profile hotel chains and in blue chip companies’ buildings. Their CEOs and operations managers have reported savings of up to 50% in energy bills, making them more efficient and environmentally aware.
