An innovation leader and a pioneering force for sustainable solutions in the Middle East, Bee’ah’s new sustainable headquarters will be infused with artificial intelligence across systems and spaces, including a digital concierge for every occupant and visitor. Bee’ah announced an agreement to enhance its new headquarters in Sharjah with a sweeping array of artificial intelligence (AI) and smart building solutions powered by Microsoft.
