Terms like ‘Proptech’ and ‘Smart Buildings’ have quickly become buzzwords in the real estate bubble – but they are often spoken without a genuine, in-depth understanding of what they mean. While it is certainly clear that buildings today are visibly more technologically advanced, it is important that those working in the Built Environment can properly define what constitutes a genuinely Smart Building and what does not.
Ultimately, data is key to technologies ever-evolving synergy with the built environment. Being able to collect, analyse and process data from real estate is becoming an increasingly sought-after element on a developer’s and occupiers wish-list – and for good reason; smart buildings can open up new revenue streams for occupiers and owners alike, contribute towards carbon-reduction targets and make life easier and more convenient for end-users. The benefits of digitisation in the built environment are seemingly endless and, therefore, somewhat of a challenge to articulate.
Drees & Sommer UK invites you to attend our webinar on Customised Smart Buildings on 19 May 2020 at 16:00 UK time. Catch industry experts to understand what digitisation means for real estate; from its potential to increase return for investors, developers, operators and occupants to the risks involved and the lessons learned from our own Customised Smart Building projects. The webinar will also explore practical means of achieving digital transformation and, ultimately, what is paving the road to artificial intelligence-controlled, fully autonomous buildings.
