Smart Buildings, a history

Everything’s getting smarter. Phones, watches, televisions, even our cars are smart now… and the buildings in which we live, work and thrive are no different. But what is a smart building?

Ever learning, ever evolving, ever improving – the smart building landscape is rapidly expanding and it’s vital that real estate has the fundamentals nailed down to make a success of it.

Historically, smart buildings have been difficult to define. To remedy this, WiredScore developed an industry standard definition of smart buildings alongside over 90 leading landlords, developers and tenants.

A smart building delivers outstanding outcomes for all users, through digital technology, to exceed their evolving expectations.

To really understand how smart buildings can help real estate realize its future-forward vision, WiredScore teamed up with Cushman & Wakefield to answer the big questions surrounding smart buildings: their form, functionality and, ultimately, the ways in which they can best benefit building users, developers and landlords not just now, but long into the future.
