Can a mixed-used, tall building become an active contributor to the success of its owners, tenants and employees?

Absolutely, and as smart buildings become more adaptive they will help create competitive advantages for their stakeholders in the following ways:

• Bottom-line financial performance: They will reduce CAPEX and OPEX spending; create new revenue streams while enhancing existing ones; and aid in real-estate investment decisions
• The ability to focus: They will provide smart spaces that not only improve employee productivity but also enhance the wellbeing of employees and the enjoyment of visitors
• Competitive differentiation: They will attract and retain the best tenants, employees and customers, while contributing to the positive and sustainable reputation of its owners and tenants
• Reduced exposure to risks: They will reduce the risk of downtime and help ensure compliance, safety, and security

The journey towards highly adaptive mixed-use tall buildings is already under-way and it’s less rocky than you may think. In this session, we will outline what you should start to expect from your buildings and your partners. We will also share our insights into how you can speed up your own journey today through the use of strategic data collection and analysis.
