HEALTHY AND INTELLIGENT BUILDINGS ARE NOW CRITICAL
The growth of the building management system (BMS) and the building automation industry in general, over the last 12 to 18 months, has been extraordinary. This explosion has been led mainly by the healthy buildings, energy management and green buildings initiatives.
This trend will continue to grow in the near future as a result of environmental air quality issues and the onslaught of Covid, as well as rising energy costs. Furthermore, studies continue to show that staff performance is directly linked to their comfort and a positive experience in the workplace.
A healthy, intelligent building can be defined as one which contains numerous intelligent connected devices that generate massive amounts of data, which is analysed to provide recommendations and drive actions that create a healthy and comfortable working environment for occupants.
It also puts measures in place to prevent the spread of viruses and germs. Additionally, energy management and green buildings are environmentally focused, with an eye on reducing a building’s carbon footprint and saving companies money on utility bills and taxes.
