SMART Building

World Trade Center Amsterdam

World Trade Center Amsterdam

The application of smart technology enables a building’s technical services to perform at an optimum level. This involves looking at how processes can be measured and then using this data to use technology more efficiently and to improve the experience for tenants. Within WTC Amsterdam we use smart technology to run and monitor (fire) safety, the indoor climate, energy consumption, lighting, and access control.

Onderhoudsplanning WTC Amsterda,
Guaranteeing the safety of persons and fire safety of the building

(Fire) Safety

There is always security personnel present who monitor the safety of everyone at WTC Amsterdam from the central control room. In addition to their physical presence, various systems are used to guarantee the (fire)safety of people. The control panels, cameras, intercoms, and access systems are linked in one system. In the field of fire safety, all connected smoke detectors and manual detectors are monitored in one central management system. In both systems, alarm messages are made visible both graphically and in text, so that action can be taken quickly and appropriately if necessary.

Guarantee users' comfort at the lowest possible energy consumption

Indoor climate

The indoor climate in the offices is continuously monitored for temperature and humidity via building management systems. In the generation of heat and cold, but also in the delivery systems, there is a sharp focus on preventing simultaneous cooling and heating. Where possible, the indoor climate is also controlled on the presence of people by using motion detection.

Energy consumption as low as possible, purchased as sustainably as possible, or generated locally

Energy consumption

Measuring energy consumption also provides good insights into optimizing consumption and where possible in making adjustments. In addition to the regular main meters of the utility companies, hundreds of extra intermediate meters are present in WTC Amsterdam. These register the energy consumption of the rented spaces per floor so that the tenants can obtain insight into the consumption as individually as possible and so that billing can also be done individually. The general consumption is divided into a number of consumption groups, so that there is a good insight obtained per tower within the complex into the energy consumption of, for example, climate systems, lifts, and lighting. Validation is important for all these measurements, and checks are made for illogical deviations. All energy is purchased green, in addition to which use is also made of heat pumps and thermal storage systems, the local systems that are present in the WTC Amsterdam. In the course of 2022, no more gas will be consumed in the entire complex.

As sustainable as possible


The objective of WTC Amsterdam is in time to switch completely to LED Lighting. In most offices traditional TL and PL lighting has already made way for sustainable LED lighting. The lighting is switched by motion detection, so that the lighting is not switched on unnecessarily in absence.

Preventing unauthorized access

Access Control

The central areas of WTC Amsterdam are freely accessible during office hours. To prevent unauthorized persons from having access to those parts of the WTC Amsterdam to which they are not authorized, new systems will be deployed in the near future. Attendance control systems will be installed at the entrances of the office towers, where users, visitors, or suppliers can access the office towers with their personal access pass or with a one-time QR code. In the parking garage with a new parking management system it will be possible to gain access to the garage with license plate recognition in addition to an access pass or ticket from the machine. In an app, it will be possible for WTC users to register number plates of employees or visitors, and charging stations can be reserved.
