Rising To The Occasion: The Buildings of the Future


How will the buildings we enter in our near future protect us—and the environment too?

 Next Up

 The International Facility Management Association (IFMA) convened virtually as 2020 ended and envisioned how the future of buildings will focus on human and environmental concerns. Experts stressed the critical importance of smart, sustainable buildings in which the “digitally connected infrastructure” makes it possible for facility managers to:

Monitor power status and quality

Optimize the HVAC system loads

Improve occupancy and air quality sensing

Identify workplace occupancy

Optimize between solar and other renewable energy sources in real time

Leverage predicted analytics to minimize downtime

Constructing—and managing—buildings will require ever better data—not just having it, but using it to make beneficial decisions in real time. Industry leaders observe that as much as 90% of available data in the buildings industry is not used, with construction teams spending 13% of their working hours searching for project data!
