What are Buildings of the Future?

Build it for zero carbon

Buildings consume about 30% of the world’s energy and account for almost 40% of annual CO 2 emissions. To be sustainable, buildings need to change. To limit global warming to 1.5°C by 2050, as specified by the IPCC, we must work to decarbonise buildings.

Together with our EcoXpert partners, we are combatting these complex challenges with innovative solutions for a more sustainable future.

1. What are Buildings of the Future?

Buildings of the Future use real-time data and interoperable technology to create sustainable, resilient, efficient, and people-centric facilities that meet the evolving needs of the businesses and people who use them. These buildings leverage automation, IoT (Internet of Things), data analytics, and renewable energy sources to optimise energy consumption, improve occupant comfort, enhance safety and security, and reduce environmental impact. They often feature intelligent lighting, HVAC systems, smart metres, occupancy sensors, and energy management systems, all interconnected to optimise energy usage and provide a seamless user experience.

2. What are the benefits of Buildings of the Future?

Buildings of the future offer numerous benefits. They enable organisations to pursue a sustainable net zero strategy, reducing energy consumption, carbon emissions, and costs, while minimising the consequences of environmental regulations, carbon taxes, and volatile energy prices. Additionally, modern power management systems and microgrids provide resilience by protecting assets and ensuring uninterrupted operations. Leveraging data aggregation and AI technology enhances operational efficiency, enabling real-time data access, automation of tasks, better decision-making, and reduced operating costs. Lastly, optimising user experience through consolidated data, automation, and enhanced business operations leads to increased attraction, retention, and differentiation.
