Digital Building – Smart Building Evolves
The term “digital building” encompasses a set of solutions that optimizes the experience of occupants, staff and management through the integration of architecture, engineering and technology. It harnesses Internet of Things (IoT) data and leverages Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology to create an expansive network that can power and share data between various building systems. Instead of looking at each system as an individual element, it looks at all systems as a unified whole — allowing cognitive computing to power people-centric spaces.
Digital buildings enable tangible value. Integrated HVAC and lighting controls can cut energy usage by as much as 40%. IoT-based spatial management can save up to 30% in energy usage. And real-time analytics and advanced services offer an inviting and productive digital experience for occupants; numerous studies show that employees across all generations want to work for digitally enabled companies.
Our integrated design and construction approach brings the knowledge and expertise needed to help clients create smart, digital buildings. Working alongside our architects and engineers, our technology experts take an integrated approach to design focused on each client’s digital strategy and its relation to real estate. The result is a fully integrated building solution that simplifies building management, reduces operational costs and drives business productivity.
