There is no doubt that if we are to fully exploit the potential of technology in the built environment then technology needs to be at the heart of the building design process, not an afterthought. Unfortunately, all too often this leads tech suppliers to focus on the install process – making sure that they have […]

Keep your building at the cutting-edge with an OPEX/aaS delivery model that allows you to access all the latest technology throughout your estate’s entire lifecycle

We have written previously about how a new converged approach to building technology requires a corresponding change in how we train the people that manage the delivery. It’s why we have worked closely with CNet training to create the Certified Integrated Infrastructure Technician (CIIT®) program – giving trainees the practical skills needed to install and […]

We talk a lot about the new experiences that are possible in truly interactive, flexible smart buildings and the potential for these experiences to completely change our conception of the built environment and our workspaces. However, we cannot talk about these services and experiences if we don’t also talk about the enabling technologies that will […]

The potential to save considerable amounts of energy and make the built environment more sustainable is much touted as one of the key benefits of digitising buildings. However, it’s not yet entirely clear that this potential is being realised. If you only listened to the IoT hype and the huge increases in the variety of […]

CV19’s impact on the workplace over the past few months has become an open invitation for anyone with an opinion to come out of the woodwork and share their thoughts on the long-term future of the corporate office. There’s been deluge of articles predicting what shape the CRE market will take and how it will […]

Acknowledging the primacy of the building network will avoid silos of systems and surface more data to create valuable efficiencies and new services.

Today’s connected building frameworks are changing the future of work and driving big cultural shifts within organisations.

Digital technology, IoT-based applications and converged deployment models are creating new ways for the commercial real estate sector to create more value.

Technology needs to be at the heart of the building design process not an afterthought.  

Digitising the built environment requires us to think about how we train the people that manage the delivery.

The term ‘smart building’ has the potential to limit our understanding of the possibilities for digitising the built environment.
