Smart construction & healthy buildings

In order to reduce global CO2 emissions, new and existing buildings need to improve their energy management and adapt to their local environment. As central part of the “Smart City”, building operators need to monitor and control energy & air quality systems, while assuring optimal conditions for the people living and working there.

Digitalisation of the building process and new construction technologies & services (e.g. BIM: Building Information Modelling) will reduce the total carbon footprint of new construction projects. Energy management systems will help both new and existing buildings in identifying key energy saving opportunities. Restoration technologies & digitally connecting the existing building stock will be essential to reducing the overall energy consumption and carbon footprint of buildings.

Interconnected digitalized buildings will be a key element for creating “smart grids”, “smart cities”, and addressing the energy and transportation challenges that lie ahead.
