NTT DATA Launches Smart Sustainable Living Pilot with Mark Development

PLANO, TX – January 11, 2023 – NTT DATA, a global digital business and IT services leader, and Mark Development, a developer of mixed-use residential, commercial and retail projects throughout the Northeast United States, have announced a collaboration to deploy a Smart Solutions pilot focused on sustainable living.

The pilot project aims to further Mark Development's goal to enhance their sustainability initiatives by creating connected experiences and engagement through more conscious, purpose-driven sustainable practice. The pilot will use NTT DATA's Smart Management Platform (SMP) to collect data from several sources in the Trio Development Complex in Newton, Massachusetts. It will generate results and recommendations for both tenants and management on how they can decrease their environmental effect by means of energy conservation, temperature control and public transit choices.

“We are excited to deploy NTT Group’s Smart Solutions technology as a part of our comprehensive commitment to sustainability,” said Damien Chaviano, Principal, Mark Development. “In a community that is deeply committed to sustainability, our residents value the investments we have made in efforts to reduce energy consumption. The technology embodied in NTT Group’s products maximizes the power of data to help drive sustainable choices.”

NTT DATA's SMP uses a digital twin foundation to import and configure key data such as building, unit, tenant, transit and weather information from multiple data sources. The platform will use the data to develop a web-based program and dashboard that will provide insight to support a data-driven, environmentally conscious lifestyle. The web applications will enable tenant interaction, recommended events, exclusive personalized content (personal goals, leaderboard games) to enhance tenants' experiences and engagement in real time.

“Mark Development is paving the road to environmentally conscious living,” said Dave Turner, Division President, State & Local Government and Education, NTT DATA Services. "We are pleased to work with Mark Development and be part of their vision of creating purpose-driven, sustainable living experiences for their tenants."
