What is A smart Building?
Smart buildings yield substantial improvements in efficiency, experience, and risk mitigation. We approach smart buildings with a purposeful methodology for technology in the different stages of strategy, design, development, and property management. Different asset classes, ownership profiles, property management approaches, and even geography affect what you would want from your smart building.
You don’t make a building “smart” simply by deploying technology. We start with a foundation of smart building attributes, such as scalability, flexibility, risk mitigation, and long-term cost structure reduction. This is a cost-neutral path that enables you to then develop use cases, access data, make better decisions, and manage risk.
Our multi-discipline expertise ensures these outcomes:
added Rent value
Increased Asset valuation
Resiliency & Business Continuity
enhanced occupant experience
Intelligent Buildings can help you achieve your business outcomes.
Did you know?
Buildings first went digital in the 1980s. Building monitoring and control systems, such as HVAC, lighting, parking, elevators, and access control, were designed to operate on computer servers using software and protocols with distributed digital control devices connected by a dedicated network. We have since further digitized these systems and connected them to the internet. We move closer to smarter buildings when we consider how those digital systems can be more interoperable and what data can be extracted and utilized to create better outcomes. With an organized digital foundation, we can be better prepared for new technologies and the abundant and continuous data streams that will set the stage for analytics and artificial intelligence.
Intelligent Buildings can help you organize your digital foundation.
