Maxwell Chambers Innovates to Become World’s First Smart Hearing Facility

Maxwell Chambers, the world’s first integrated dispute resolution complex, will soon also become the world’s first smart hearing facility, offering more convenient, secure and comfortable hearings for businesses, legal counsel, arbitrators and mediators, through the use of smart technology. The Smart Maxwell initiative includes smart booking, security, food and beverage, secretariat and concierge services, and a robot named “Max” to deliver files and food within the four-storey building.

The initiative, supported by local enterprise development agency Enterprise Singapore, is also expected to generate more business opportunities for the legal industry in Singapore – which serves clients seeking dispute resolution at Maxwell Chambers. The use of smart technology will improve the ease of administration and logistics and allow disputing parties to better focus on their cases that are heard at Maxwell Chambers. The smart solutions will be co-developed with users and rolled out in Maxwell Chambers by the end of this year. It will be extended, in Phase 2, to the adjacent Maxwell Chambers Suites and serve the 50 new offices there when the new extension completes in 2019. The smart technology is developed jointly with two Singapore tech start-ups, Habitap and Techmetics.
