Smart or Intelligent Buildings

INTELLIGENT BUILDING

The intelligent (or smart) system, originally had applied to electrical and mechanical systems on IT network that was continuously monitored.

The smart building included civil engineering structures and aerospace systems to control structural functions.  The intelligent structure has the capability to identify its status and optimally adapt its function in response to stimuli. Smart building technologies includes healthy environment, people and culture, environment protection, economy and politics in order to build an environment for the best productivity and healthy living in harmony with nature. 

 

Smart building  integrates building performance with occupants needs. Intelligent architecture consists of three areas:

  • Building architecture and design

  • Technology applications and hardware

  • Computer-aided building management and maintenance systems

BUILDING MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

BMS includes energy management systems and building operation controls. The Building Management System controling, monitoring and optimizing building operation: lighting, security (CCTV), access to the facility, inside audio and communication systems, ventilation, and air quality. The system keeps visitors records, staff work schedule and buiding engineering equipment and maintenance.

Building Automation 

 

Leaders throughout the commercial real estate world are tuning in ever more closely to smart building trends. The term “smart building” is loosely tossed around a lot, but it generally refers to network-enabled building management systems that help automate building operations. These technologies, once considered revolutionary, are steadily becoming the norm in today’s premier office buildings. For businesses searching for office space, it’s important to know that locating a smart building can have substantial benefits, including: lower costs, saving time, and simply promoting a greater sense of comfort and ease to employees (provided the building itself is equipped with the infrastructure to support these uses). Here are five examples of web-enabled smart building features that can make a big impact on your office environment:

  • Optimized HVAC Systems

  • Managed Electricity Reductions

  • Maximized Building Security

  • Smart Sensors For Lighting

  • Controlled Appliances From Remote Locations

Green Buildings and Smart Buildings are complementary and in some areas overlap.

 

The green buildings have numerous certification processes that define or shape the energy efficient and sustainable building and provide guidance to the design team. The smart building certification process doesn't require as many procedures as a green building does.

The smart buildings operation capabilities:

1. Multi-system integration that provides enhanced functionality for a building

2. Integration of data from several building systems, business tools, facility management systems and exterior data

3. Analysis of building data and the creation of metrics in order to measure and monitor building performance against benchmarks or established goals

4. Advanced building management platforms with the capability to deploy real-time system analytics and do so on an enterprise basis, remotely and covering an entire portfolio of buildings
