Building analytics software company CIM said it plans to add a further 85 people to its team in Ireland over the next 36 months.

The organisation, which has locations in Dublin, London and Sydney, opened its European headquarters in Ireland in 2019.

CIM creates building analytics software that helps run large buildings at their peak performance. Their "PEAK" platform integrates building intelligence, machine learning and mechanical engineering to improve efficiency, sustainability and comfort across property portfolios.

The company currently employ 43 staff globally.

Paul Walsh, General Manager of CIM EMEA, said the growth of CIM in Ireland to date has accelerated faster than expected and the outlook for the future appears strong. 

"We've seen a huge response to PEAK in both the manufacturing and commercial real estate sector. As we expand, we'll need to add roles, not only to the commercial side of the business, but also on the Engineering and Customer Success teams, to ensure PEAK's offering continues to deliver," Paul Walsh added.

CIM's founder and CEO is David Walsh, who is currently based in the company's headquarters in Sydney.

He said that bringing the business to Ireland was always his ambition and since it set up its European headquarters in Ireland in 2019, it has gone from strength to strength.

"Since the advent of Covid, we have experienced a significant upturn in demand from building owners and managers looking to improve their operations  particularly in the area of sustainability," he said. 

"We are currently very focused on supporting clients with buildings running at reduced capacity, ensuring energy is only being consumed in the areas and at the times needed," he added.
