From the Smart Building to the Wise Building

Synopsis

The smart building is already upon us. In 2016 the global market for automated and smart building services was worth over 30 billion US dollars. This is having a massive impact on the way buildings are designed and commissioned and how we use them and experience them.  In this keynote presentation, Henry Lawson, Senior Market Research Analyst in BSRIA World Market Intelligence, will look at some of the current trends affecting every type of building from the home, to the retail shop to the hospital or office block.  He will look at how building automation systems are changing and being challenged and at the dramatic growth in the smart homes market, as well as more specialised areas including Building Energy Management (BEMS) and the newly emerging revolution in Smart Connected HVAC systems.  All of this means that the Smart Building is evolving into the Wise Building. The wise building is in constant touch with its occupants and the wider world. It moves beyond smart programming and even basic decision making to ‘remember’ and ‘learn’ how to provide the best, most comfortable and most productive environment.  Henry will look at how the Cloud and the Internet of Things are central to achieving this transformation and what this means both for business and society.
