How to design a smart environment

Designing a smart environment, whether it be a building, a campus, a city, or even several interconnected cities, requires a process and planning that goes far beyond technical considerations alone. For these environments to truly meet the needs of occupants, they must be human-centered and incorporate elements related to user experience, mobility, accessibility, inclusion, resource management, and much more.

After years of implementing innovation ecosystems and supporting various actors in the development of their transformational projects, Arche believes that smart environment projects require well-structured ecosystems involving several disciplines, technologies, structures and people with different perspectives. Regardless of your size, you have the power to attract a diversity of actors, promote synergies between them and act to increase the quality of life of citizens and visitors through these projects.

Sector Public Icon

Innovation in a public organization can be a challenge. As an actor of change working within a government agency or a para-public entity, you have to innovate within a complex structure, with very specific rules about how you can work with external collaborators, how you choose suppliers, how your budgets are planned, and how decisions are made. All of these generate real factors that need to be taken into account whenever public funds are invested in innovation.

Arche has extensive experience and a team familiar with government procedures and regulations. Our strategies are tailored to adapt to your reality and offer you results-oriented organizational modernization.

All good companies constantly evaluate themselves and seek to use innovation as a way to perform better, reduce operating expenses and provide teams with the tools and knowledge to compete in an innovation economy. Too often, however, companies see innovation as part of their work, rather than as part of their culture that transforms the workforce into a community of problem-solvers.

Arche understands that as a company, you need to focus on your work and meet the needs of your customers. We understand your reality, let us show you how to integrate innovation into the way you work.

Academic & Research

Innovation and the academic sector have always been synonymous. Universities and research centres have always been at the heart of innovation: testing ideas, demonstrating capacity and supporting industry in the development of countless technologies that we all use in our daily lives. However, because academia is the source of ideas, institutions often find it difficult to collaborate with the private sector, to support the full innovation cycle and to capitalise on the value generated by research.

Arche, having worked with many universities and research centres, understands the importance of finding new and creative ways to support the research community. Let us help you build structured innovation and collaboration models to transform your research into solutions that make an impact in the world.

Incubators, accelerators and entrepreneurship training programs have become the new engines of local economic development, helping entrepreneurs build the next generation of businesses. However, in this increasingly competitive field, it is becoming difficult to differentiate between different service offerings and support the revival of local economies.

Arche has worked with some of the best incubators in Canada to advise them on the development of their programs, their support ecosystems, and how to use open innovation to build bridges with SMEs and large companies and turn ideas into value.
