To build a consensus on smart: what it means, how it can be valuable to owners and users, and (crucially) how to measure success when delivering a smart building – the WiredScore Smart Council was formed.
Comprising over 90 global, forward-thinking companies, the WiredScore Smart Council worked with WiredScore for over a year to form a global definition of smart buildings, and develop a framework for WiredScore’s new certification for smart buildings (SmartScore), designed to serve both the owners and users of the buildings around the world.
The WiredScore Smart Council marks the first time landlords, tenants and real estate leaders of such caliber have come together to combine their knowledge and expertise to provide a dedicated approach to the impact of smart buildings within real estate.
The WiredScore Smart Council is the first of its kind in both scale and process. As a result, WiredScore’s definition of smart is uniquely accurate, relevant and expertly informed – and the only definition generated by the industry, for the industry.
With many thanks to the companies who have provided case studies for this white paper, and to all the WiredScore Smart Council Members and Research Advisors for their generous and insightful input into WiredScore’s smart research and development process.
