Smart buildings are safer

What is an intelligent building?

The most important advantages of an intelligent building

As an innovative solution, the intelligent building enables the joint pursuit of several goals:

  • Improvement of the user comfort
  • Reduction of operating costs
  • predictive usage management

Improving comfort and mitigating climate change

A smart building helps fight global warming, in line with several EU directives aimed at improving the energy efficiency of buildings and achieving a decarbonised building stock by 2050. It makes the use of shared space more efficient and helps to limit an oversupply of unnecessary structures. In this case, it also enables real-time monitoring of ambient conditions and air quality (CO2, temperature, relative humidity, TVOC) to improve the well-being of users.

Control of building maintenance costs

A smart building also responds to economic challenges as it is mainly used in buildings that are in the operational phase (i.e. after construction). This phase alone accounts for around 80% of the total life cycle costs of a building (average duration between 30 and 35 years). In this case, the intelligent building enables the condition of the technical equipment to be monitored in real time.

Predict trends in room occupancy and use

After all, an intelligent building is actively involved in the introduction of new work practices in companies, as it enables, for example, the efficient introduction of teleworking (Flex Office) and ensures efficient dimensioning of the rooms over time. In this way, division heads can organize themselves more flexibly and guarantee healthy working conditions.

What advantages does the intelligent building offer the company and its ecosystem?

The advantages are many and vary depending on the different profiles in connection with the workplace:

  • Users
  • Operator / technician
  • Manager / landlord
