If The Walls Could Talk is a series of conversations about smart buildings, connecting key thinkers in the property world with each other, and you.

The series delves deeper into the practicalities of how to create a smart building that works, delivers great user experiences and reduces its environmental impact on the built environment.

You’ll hear from landlords and developers, advisors and tenants in the smart building space all of whom bring their unique perspective on what does the term smart building actually mean and what it takes to create a smart building that works.

The series follows four key themes throughout and leaves you with practical takeaways from each conversation.

  1. How to approach creating a smart building.
  2. User-first design: how to create a smart building that delivers.
  3. Technical foundations of smart: How to create a smart building that works
  4. Smart and sustainability: Reducing the environmental impact of the built environment

‘Smart’ is an opaque subject for the industry – there is little agreement regarding what matters in a smart building: how to approach creating a smart building, how to work with the supply chain, or even what ‘smart’ itself means.

Topic one of If The Walls Could Talk answers these questions and discusses the critical areas to consider when specifying a building and instructing the supply chain, provides listeners with an understanding of what you need to do when during the development process, how to think about getting the outcomes you want, how to think about procurement and how to calculate return on investment.
