Smart or intelligent buildings are enterprise structure that is supported by software and systems to ensure more efficient and effective operations and enhance the health and well-being of the assets.
The smart buildings market consists of residential, warehouses, factories, office buildings, and other enterprises, industrial, and government structures. Intelligent structures leverage a variety of inter-dependent technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), broadband wireless (including WiMAX, LTE, 5G, and indoor wireless such as improvements coming with WiFi version 6), cloud computing (including edge computing), and Internet of Things (IoT) networks and systems to improve operational efficiency and enable a safer and more productive environment.
According to the report, the post-COVID-19 world will challenge building operations management in terms of public health compliance. Life cycle cost management for facilities will become a key factor in building selection for corporate giants.
“Collectively speaking, residential dwellings, offices, educational campuses, indoor recreation, and public service facilities are where people in the developed world spend up to 90 percent of their time. As urbanisation leads to increasingly smarter cities, buildings are an integral part of a city’s ecosystem and are increasingly shaping both the standard of living and the quality of life of inhabitants. Intelligent buildings lead to improved economics for both owners and users as well as improved satisfaction, safety, and well-being of occupants,” the report said.
