Stephen Wreford

Head of Building Intelligence


As Director, Head of Building Intelligence, I lead a team of experienced consulting engineers delivering intelligent building strategy, design and governance .

After studying environmental engineering, I chose a technology route and embracing an affinity towards digital and the control of the built environment, began a journey of technical product management in the building automation industry. The world was entering an era where digital surpassed analogue.

Moving to Switzerland I led teams developing technology focussed on system integrations and the next generation of platforms, this was the beginning of PropTech and Smart Technology. I could see where the industry could head and wanted to lead it.

Having created the technology, I moved my attention to the business and commercial aspects of integration by taking on the role of global marketing manager.

The role embraced the marketing, business and commercial strategies for 27 countries, Developing the new markets and expanding the existing ones. Smart was adding greater value and becoming profitable.

Specialist/sector expertise.
Combining the commercial, business and technical knowledge, Stephen founded a technology organisation that developed over 80 integration technology solutions, installed in over 2000 projects worldwide. Smart tech was becoming mature and stable.

Project experience.
My focus expanded to include consulting and since 2015, I have designed and deployed intelligent building projects around the world delivering benefit and value across almost every sector.
