Many digital technologies have already become part of everyday life – from intelligent parking management to systems for booking workplaces, hotel rooms and electric vehicles. But in a smart building, it’s not the number of built-in IoT technologies and sensors that matters, but the added value for users. Principals have to consider from the outset who the later users are, what they expect, and what digital functions the building will have to provide.
- User requirements
- Data protection
- Frequent updates
- High costs
- Building’s technical obsoletion by the time it is completed.
At Drees & Sommer, we do not see digital technologies as an end in themselves: Rather, they are about improving processes and user experience, ensuring sustainable operation of the property, and enabling new business models. For this reason, a Customized Smart Building is precisely tailored to the needs of its users. It can reliably monitor and control the processes that take place inside it, creating economic and environmental added value for all parties involved.
