There is a lot of buzz around Intelligent, or Smart, Buildings, but what is an Intelligent Building? This presentation on will examine the answers to this question and how you can put your building on its path to a “higher education”.


Advancements in technology have given the engineer the ability to aggregate and share data across disparate systems thereby creating opportunities to increase energy and operational efficiencies, improve occupant comfort, safety, productivity, and enrich the visualization capabilities for the organization’s numerous internal and external stakeholders. The intelligent building platform will result in a more efficient, secure and productive asset  that has the capacity to continuously improve over its lifetime.
