Defining Smart

Smart buildings – How “smart” they are is in the eye of the customer

“Smart building” means different things to different people. Are buildings of the past dumb ? A more integrated view of what this means to Real Estate, IT and the occupants is needed. The design concept (form/function/ICT) must respond to the occupant, but also the services consumed must be accessible and easy to use.
