The rising focus on sustainability and environmental concerns has prompted cities around the world to change policies and implement changes within their local infrastructure. Since approximately 30 percent of greenhouse gas emissions and 70 percent of energy consumption in major cities is attributable to buildings, these smart city initiatives are calling for smarter buildings.
Smart building technologies not only control a building’s HVAC systems and water consumption; they can also provide more accurate oversight to more easily identify waste, inefficiencies, and opportunities for improvement. SmartCSM is one of these technologies, which provides FMs with more building oversight and makes the smart city as a whole even smarter by increasing the building data IQ of the facility manager and their team. It’s building technologies like this that are deeply shaping the future of commercial real estate.
As more and more buildings are connected to the Internet of Things (IoT), 80 percent are still stuck in a paper-based world. SmartCSM is the key, not only to transitioning these buildings to cloud-based data management, but organizing and centralizing building data so FMs have a more powerful connected record of building data truth. Then, they can begin metering and monitoring various infrastructure assets to improve sustainability.
This platform organizes building data and collects important insights - information that is vital for facility managers to use to improve the efficiency and sustainability of their building operations.
It helps them work smarter, as they have more information about the actual functions of the building.
