The interconnected future of smart city begins with smart building


As cities seek investment, formulate sustainable policies and attract citizens and workers, smart buildings will play an indispensable role in their development

.

Nowadays, smart city plans are constantly launched around the world

.

According to a recent IDC report, cities from Seattle to Singapore to London are expected to spend nearly $124 billion on smart city plans this year, an increase of 18.9% over 2019

.

In order to build a smart city, it is important to understand the most basic part of it – smart building

.

They are the “cornerstone” of the foundation, which will make our cities truly transform

.

Through smart buildings, we will provide a safe, sustainable and interconnected environment for the majority of the global population

.

However, as buildings become more and more intelligent around the world, promoting broader and measurable progress requires a missing element, that is, a universal and holistic approach to assess the intelligence or “wisdom” of buildings

.

Although there are some existing building plans that can track specific issues such as energy use, so far, there is no complete assessment of intelligent buildings

.

We must focus on buildings from many aspects, link technology with the safety and health of people in buildings, and reduce operating costs at the same time

.

All of these combine to increase the value of urban buildings for owners and owners.

.

As cities seek investment, formulate sustainable policies and attract citizens and workers, smart buildings will play an indispensable role in their development

.

Through its members and partners, a common set of standards is established to meet this demand

.

In order to succeed, these standards need the participation of stakeholders of the whole smart building ecosystem

.

To do this, we can bring together real estate, construction, engineering, construction, security and ICT professionals to help define the framework needed for evaluation criteria

.

The first challenge is to define how to evaluate intelligent buildings and identify gaps in current plans

.

It can be found that smart buildings ultimately have six key categories that need to be considered in the assessment: connectivity, health and well-being, life and property security, electricity and energy, network security and sustainability

.

Having a common smart building assessment framework will effectively provide a roadmap for current building owners and investors to determine which smart building advances will produce the desired results, such as increased property value, higher occupancy, or a more productive and attractive work environment

.

And meet the requirements of safety regulations of relevant departments

.

As buildings develop and become more intelligent (whether in the design stage or in the reconstruction after construction), cities will be able to use them to achieve their own plans

.

As the smart city plan takes root, applications like intelligent transportation and parking, autopilot, UAV delivery and enhanced emergency response will require low latency 5G networks and infrastructure

.

As part of the network infrastructure, data centers used to compute and process large amounts of generated information are pushed to the “edge” and closer to end users to meet latency requirements

.

Smart buildings in the city will be the natural starting point for hosting these new edge data centers

.

Promoting smart buildings through common standards, best practices and evaluation standards will be the first step in promoting a truly smart city

.

A comprehensive evaluation framework will provide criteria for defining investment strategies and operational priorities for intelligent building communities

.

In turn, as buildings become more intelligent, city and state governments can work with them to better manage shared resources, reduce pollution, and predict infrastructure maintenance requirements

.

Even now, in a pandemic, smart building applications are being evaluated to plan how employees and other building residents can safely return to the workplace

.

Solving these problems will help ensure that the government has good planning and support for its residents

.

It’s important to remember that buildings and cities don’t become “smart” overnight

.

A wide range of stakeholders need time and planned efforts to make progress

.

Now, promoting the development of smart buildings will ensure a safer, healthier and more prosperous future for us and future generations
