Intelligent Buildings Europe

The building sector is in flux and building owners are realising that they need to change their portfolio if they want to adhere to shifting consumer demands and sustainability goals. According to Navigant Research, 2017 is a tipping point in which building owners and key decision makers will accelerate investments in intelligent building solutions that embody the technology foundation of digital transformation. The scalable, secure and open platforms of these solutions are generating cost savings, providing energy efficiency and sustainability improvements and enhancing occupant satisfaction.
