Your Guide to Smart Buildings

This guide takes you through all of the most relevant intelligent building use cases. Whether you want to focus first on energy efficiency, data-driven space optimization, workplace well-being & productivity, or other scenarios still. Because an intelligent building is first and foremost about purpose: the things you want to improve, facilitate, or enable for the people using the building. It outlines how to get started and how you can bring your building into the future in stages rather than taking on everything at once. And it looks at the different stakeholders and how they can benefit from connected buildings. Finally, it also takes a look at the evolution of green and healthy building certifications and the recent emergence of several SBCs (Smart Building Certifications).
