BEEAH’s Futuristic Headquarters is Ready for the Metaverse

Khaled Al Huraimel, Group CEO of BEEAH Group, reveals that Metaverse is an integral part of the new BEEAH Headquarters, modelling the office of the future

BEEAH Group has revealed that its highly anticipated Zaha Hadid headquarters, one of the smartest and most sustainable buildings in the world, will feature digital twin technology as a virtual parallel to its headquarters, aligning with the ‘Metaverse’.

With integrations for over 100 AI use cases, the BEEAH Headquarters is already the most AI-integrated workspace in the Middle East and is positioned as a model for the office of the future. One of the key technology integrations at the headquarters is the digital twin, which is a virtual replica of the headquarters physical structure and systems, tracking parameters and data in real-time. AI technologies then run simulations, studying the building’s occupancy rate, temperature and light preferences, as well as other variables. Finally, the AI proposes solutions or implements actions that will help realise energy ultra-efficiency.

The BEEAH Group CEO highlighted how the building was designed to be future-ready and go beyond the physical workplace, envisioning a future with remote and virtual working environments. “From the beginning, we have seen the importance of using digital twin technology. It not only enables sustainable operations at LEED Platinum standards, but also helped realise our digital-driven office of the future. Digital twin technology is an essential building block for a parallel reality workplace, such as the Metaverse. It allows synchronicity between the physical and virtual worlds where our employees and partners can benefit from a simultaneous experience at our headquarters both physically and virtually.”

”As we designed the office of the future, we sought to integrate the best technologies for an experience that combines the best of both the physical and virtual worlds. This aligns with our vision of the future workplace and preparing for Web3. We expect that as our businesses grow, metaverse workplaces, will increasingly become a requirement for convenient collaboration across geographies and across our group verticals,” the BEEAH Group CEO said.

The BEEAH Headquarters has several access control measures in place, from number plate recognition to guide drivers to the correct smart parking spot to facial recognition at a virtual concierge. For employees, a companion app also allows access to specific areas such as control rooms. In the near future, the BEEAH Group CEO envisions smart contracts and blockchain technology to provide the next level of convenience for employee access to different utilities and functions. “We will be able to centralise access control and employee identification for employees, through blockchain technology. This will further enhance security, from entry to physical spaces within the building and also virtual rooms. The Employee smart contracts will provide not just access to the HQ but also to several other utilities as part of their employment within the group,” Khaled Al Huraimel said.

Currently, meeting rooms in the BEEAH Headquarters feature the best technologies for employee comfort and productivity. In addition to automated adjustment for light and temperature based on occupancy for on-site employees, the rooms also facilitate hybrid collaboration with remote employees. During a call, the minutes of the meeting are recorded and emailed to participants automatically.

The BEEAH Group worked closely with Microsoft, Johnson Controls and EVOTEQ to implement the next-generation technologies at the BEEAH Headquarters. EVOTEQ is a venture of BEEAH Digital, the Group’s digital transformation and future technologies business. Under BEEAH Digital, is another venture with a digital ecosystem conceived to realise the next level of convenience for people, at home and in the workplace. BEEAH Digital will also be building the first Data Centre in the Emirate of Sharjah. In addition to featuring cutting-edge technologies from the industry, the headquarters also showcases the success of the Group’s digital ventures.

“Combining the powerful technologies from Microsoft and Johnson Controls with the expertise of EVOTEQ, BEEAH has successfully created a future-ready headquarters. Our workplace innovations and Metaverse applications will continue as we further our global operations,” Khaled Al Huraimel said.

In addition to the pioneering technological innovations in the building, the BEEAH Headquarters also boasts a sustainable design. Accounting for the natural wind conditions and ambient temperature, the Zaha Hadid designed building is shaped, constructed, and finished to minimise energy requirements and be in harmony with the environment. Digital twin technology and predictive AI further optimise energy consumption, realising LEED Platinum standards of operation.

LexisNexis Launches CaseMap Cloud for Enhanced Matter and Case Management

Redesigned suite of three market-leading products now in one cloud-based solution for better collaboration, organization, efficiency and deeper case insights

NEW YORK LexisNexis Legal & Professional®, a leading global provider of information and analytics, today announced the official launch of CaseMap Cloud, a new cloud-based fact management and case analysis solution that helps attorneys easily organize case documents and craft case strategy for presenting a compelling case story. CaseMap Cloud seamlessly integrates three award-winning applications – CaseMap, TextMap and TimeMap – into one cloud-based solution for unparalleled organization, collaboration, knowledge management and strategic matter and case management.

Keeping track of facts, documents, issues, people and important details can be a challenge even on a relatively straightforward case. CaseMap Cloud lets lawyers, paralegals and litigators pull all their facts together in a single place, giving them a holistic view of the entire case to help build a strong legal strategy. Being able to organize, analyze and interact with all the elements in the case in one location enables legal teams to work faster, smarter and more efficiently by allowing quick access to vital documents and other critical case details.

“Whether in large, small or corporate law, litigation is often very detailed and complex, and legal teams need efficiencies, insights and sharing capabilities to be successful,” said Sean Fitzpatrick, CEO, LexisNexis North America, UK & Ireland. “CaseMap Cloud creates order from chaos, allowing legal teams to build winning case strategies with greater efficiency and cost savings, and gain a competitive advantage.”

CaseMap Cloud offers the same suite of trusted case and matter management applications that thousands of attorneys rely on to help formulate stronger legal strategies. Now, those applications have been seamlessly integrated and enhanced with the ‘anytime – anywhere’ access, data security, redundancy, and cost effectiveness of the cloud.

Some of the many new features and benefits of CaseMap Cloud include:

  • Platform Agnostic: Connect anywhere you can run a browser.
  • Intuitive & Interactive Dashboard: See the way your case is shaping up quickly on the dashboard. You can also identify missing source files or case facts that still need substantiation.
  • Fact Management: Import, search, organize and analyze facts, documents, and unsubstantiated facts in your case. Manage facts from intake through settlement or trial and see connections that might have otherwise been missed.
  • Lexis Research & Shepard Signals Integration: Easily send caselaw research directly to CaseMap Cloud – and intrinsically know whether it is “good law” or not – without switching application windows.
  • Entity Recognition: Quickly identify connections when new facts are added to your case, and automatically link information together to save time connecting the dots.
  • Auto Timeline: Automatically arrange new data into the correct chronological order as you input new information on your timeline. Easily display your case chronology, which reveals any gaps and transforms your timeline into a powerful visual aid for presentation during the case.
  • Transcript Management: Manage, search and play video while the transcript follows along in sync. Annotate or cull key transcript messages, link exhibits, and crate reports for strategic analysis.
  • Issue Management: Quickly develop a visual hierarchy of claims, counterclaims and any other known arguments.


In addition, CaseMap Cloud’s powerful searching, filtering and sorting capabilities leverage extensive metadata to quickly pinpoint the information or documents you need without multiple searches. Its Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology automatically ingests documents and data, which saves time and labor, and makes them immediately available for searching and analysis. Users can also view and annotate documents and share information among colleagues from within the CaseMap Cloud application.
