PropTech is digitally transforming real estate through innovation in commercial, industrial and residential sectors. Artificial intelligence, machine learning, big data, Internet of Things and the cloud provide significant value for property owners and tenants alike as new technologies are introduced and adopted in a real estate setting. These technologies, some of which are already provided by Sustainco, offer increased efficiency and safety by eliminating existing costs in the sector, the improvement of design and operations in new and existing buildings, and in the operations and maintenance of real estate assets.

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in property owners seeking out proptech solutions to safeguard air quality and to increase sanitation efficacy. The Company’s service offerings are geared to meet these immediate and longer-term needs. They are being integrated into the Company’s existing air control and sustainability systems.
