Problem Statement
WE ARE LOOKING FOR SOLUTIONS SUCH AS....

Robotics & AI

K11 retail malls aim to serve shoppers with unique, game-changing shopping experiences that brings together culture, art and innovation. Our malls, K11 MUSEA, Guangzhou K11 and 11SKIES seek for innovative robotics and/or AI solution for the following use case:

One of our sites will serve shoppers from Hong Kong, the Greater Bay Area and the rest of the world. We would require innovative solutions especially on customer shopping behavior/pattern identification to cross-sell our offerings to the targeted mall visitors. The solution should be able to cater the different segments of customers who will be able to enjoy a tailored, original & innovative journey in mall and the New World Ecosystem. Additionally, market research estimates that over 55% of visitors to our space are tourists (35% Mainland China tourists; 20% international tourists). Among the international segment, tourists from South Korea, Taiwan, Philippines and Thailand are more likely to visit 11 SKIES, and therefore multilingual capabilities should be considered.

A.I.

MUSEA aims to identify international up and coming brands/concepts that are looking to enter Hong Kong or Asia market with technology. We are looking for an intelligent and easy-to-use solution that would collect, consolidate and recommend up and coming brands/concepts that are aligned with the MUSEA vision and positioning, in order to drive mutual collaboration and growth opportunities.

Robotics & A.I. 

Hip Seng aims to find smart solutions that can assist human in completing repetitive tasks on the construction sites, while being able to cope with the space constraint and/or network limitation. In addition, we are also looking for intelligent solution that can provide scan-to-BIM feature in an accurate and efficient manner.

Robotics & A.I. 

In anticipation of the future changes to come in community management services, New World China Land (NWCL)  is looking to provide unique and innovative experiences to our tenants and patrons through the application of technology.

NWCL is also looking for technologies that can help property developers better increase their efficiency and reduce their cost during the design, construction and commissioning phases.

Robotics

Technology is changing the way property management is done on a daily basis. At our K11 facilities, we are looking to deploy solutions to that can help reduce the human capital intensive work needed to maintain our properties. We are looking for robotics or AI solutions that can:

  • Clean bathroom facilities automatically without human intervention

  • Clean floors at scale and on an industrial level

  • Effectively and efficiently collect and measure waste from each tenant

  • Minimize the impact of noise and air pollutants during renovations

  • Sustainably and effective dry the umbrellas of incoming mall patrons

  • Standardize the signage across the whole property (interior/ exterior/ parking lot)

  • Autonomously measuring body temperatures of mall patrons
