Experts predict smart buildings will have collected Such rapid growth is driven by a range of factors, including the pace of global urbanisation, favourable government regulations, the enhanced security features and reductions in operating costs most notably, your energy bill such smart technologies provide.
We spoke to Reinhold Wieland, business development manager at smart building consultancy firm Connecting Buildings, to find out more about the smart buildings market and its potential impact in the flexible workspace industry.
In your opinion, how mature is the smart buildings industry? And what are the barriers to change? But every app or specific technology has its own curve. Perhaps it would be better to grade it on a scale of 1 to 10 or with a star rating.
I would say the average of buildings would be on a rating of 3, but many would rank much lower. First, under Stage 1, one needs to have the infrastructure in place to enable a building to be smart, this includes: IT networks, IoT, wifi, building automation and energy management.
I would rate these apps as on the scale.
There is a substage in between which uses apps like space management or room bookings. These are in the smart space but are not essentially connected with other systems.
A lot of new so-called smart technologies are being developed in this area.
Stage 2 would be the seamless interconnection of systems and having data available in real time. I would rate this on the scale. Stage 3 is when the building is interacting with people automatically using intelligent workflow engines. This could be on the scale. What are the main challenges of the smart building industry for flexible workspaces?
Firstly, building services are not designed to be integrated. This has slowly changed for building automation, for example, by introducing common protocols like BACnetbut most other building services are still operating as silos. This is because of inherent security fears and, furthermore, contractors want to protect future maintenance revenues by using legacy systems with little transparency.
Then, there are the various layers of building management — like property and tenant management, facility management, and so on. They all have various requirements and operating systems that are not designed for integration.
As a result, obtaining information on building systems is difficult since the information is held by silos and information is usually not shared or in real time.Managing the energy and other needs in buildings efficiently and intelligently can have considerable benefits.
A building energy management system (BEMS) is a sophisticated method to monitor and control the building's energy needs. Systems integration can facilitate applications such as consolidated alarm management where the alarms from all the building control systems can be monitored and managed from a single application.
The easiest part of deploying an alarm management application may be acquiring the alarm data from the building systems.

Challenges in Building Distributed Operating Systems One core problem for distributed operating system designers is concurrency and synchronization. These issues arise in single-machine operating systems, but they are easier to solve there.
The Challenge of Information Systems: Key Management Issues. Although information technology is advancing at a blinding pace, there is nothing easy or mechanical about building and using information systems.5/5(1). The Role of Buildings and the Case for Whole Building Design.
Buildings are deceptively complex. At their best, they connect us with the past and represent the greatest legacy for the future.
