There’s no question that the technology revolution is here – and it’s transforming the world of commercial real estate. Join us for a live broadcast of Real Estate Beyond the Digital Age, the opening session of the 2016 Building Energy Summit, at 8:30am EDT on March 16, 2016, to learn more from senior executives at Marriott, Cisco, and JLL about their vision of the future of real estate.
As new technologies change how your buildings operate and how your people work, everyone is talking about smart buildings. What’s all the hype about?
In a smart building, a centralized network integrates your Internet-enabled building systems so they can communicate, share data and operate more efficiently. This network forms the backbone of your smart building, and it’s where you’ll integrate your smart applications. The options for smart applications are practically endless – ranging from individual lighting and temperature controls, workspace management platforms, and access controls (among many others).
The key to capitalizing on your smart building investment? It starts with taking a holistic approach to your smart building program.
What can a smart building do for your business?
A well-designed, integrated smart building can unlock significant value across your business by:
- Reducing the total costs of owning and operating facilities
- Improving energy efficiency and water conservation
- Providing better services and amenities to occupants
- Responding to real-time conditions and needs
- Creating a safe, healthy, and productive built environment
- Reducing risk and technical obsolescence
- Promoting sustainable environmental stewardship
