Empathic Buildings – Tomi Teikko

Published by Will Needham on

What does it take to turn a smart building into an Empathic Building?

This week’s show comes from Helsinki, Finland. I speak with Tomi Teikko.

Tomi works for the Nordic IT Services and Software Company Tieto, but as you’ll hear, Tieto are not your traditional IT company.

Tomi is responsible for bringing to life the Empathic Building concept which you’ll hear a lot more about in this episode. 

In this episode, we’ll be answering some big questions, like:. 

  • How can a building be Empathic
  • Productivity in a smart building is difficult to measure, so what else can we measure?  
  • How do you encourage building occupants to give feedback

I believe in a future built environment that is safe, sustainable, healthy, efficient & productive. Actually, I believe pockets of excellence in each of these things already exist; they are just distributed geographically in different parts of the world. My mission is to go out there and find these pockets of excellence and tell the stories of the people, projects, policies that are responsible for such positive steps.
