Today’s buildings are getting healthier, smarter and a lot more sensitive. CCN Editor, Sandra Rossi, examines the trends driving this new landscape.
Sustainable buildings have become the new standard especially as the entire world heads towards net zero.
But it isn’t just about design features and indoor comfort.
The COVID-19 pandemic has raised the bar when it comes to Indoor Air Quality.
Safety is at the forefront of purchasing decisions.
In recent years building controls have made buildings smarter and more responsive to the needs of tenants.
Today building owners are taking this to the next level with the deployment of sensors.
This has transformed building operations making our buildings more sensitive and aware.
Smart buildings use technologies such as the ‘Internet of things’ (IoT) which connects devices, such as sensors, lighting and security, to the internet using embedded software and sensors to communicate with one another. By communicating with one another devices can monitor themselves and act when necessary.
