OKTO Technologies

Founded in 1992 by Irish born Philip Dowds, the OKTO Technologies' portfolio of clients includes super prime residential developments, international 5* hotels and Michelin starred restaurants across London and abroad. From bespoke environment, lighting, security and AV control systems, to AI Butlers, air filtration systems and BMS, OKTO Technologies provides an entire 'End to End' solution, the only firm of its kind in the UK to offer such a broad range of disciplines under one roof.

The firm's team of 64 highly skilled designers, engineers, project managers and programmers can deliver the entire scheme of works, from containment and cabling, lift control, to lighting, window treatments, BMS, AV and IT. They provide clients with one specialist OKTO team consisting of the best engineers in the industry, covering every aspect of the bespoke design and installation of smart building technical systems.

OKTO Technology's Mirror-Build laboratory is also a completely unique offering in the marketplace, allowing the team to pre-assemble and meticulously test each project under factory conditions before being transported and installed in its final destination. The Mirror-Build facility delivers significant time savings of up to 75% at the pivotal on-site commissioning period, when time and space are at a premium. Each bespoke system is built in its entirety, and rigorously tested through OKTO Technologies’ 8 Phase Test Regime – an industry-leading quality assurance process. More information on this, including video content, is available on request.
