“Use of technology and process to create a building that is safer and more productive for its occupants and more operationally efficient for its owners.”
Modern buildings perform significantly better in economic, environmental and social terms. Better performance depends on the improved use of information systems and control to maximise efficiency.
As well as providing greatly enhanced communications, intelligent buildings with intelligent technologies allow the remote monitoring and control of building systems such as lighting, heating, security and safety, and the potential for much more. The convergence of building management and control systems with communications and IT infrastructures means that intelligent buildings can now be more effective than ever in increasing building performance.
