[Chicago, IL] – [April 17, 2017] – ESD has been an internationally recognized leader in the development of Intelligent Buildings for years. To provide better clarity and competitive advantage to their clients, ESD has created an Intelligent Building Group dedicated to helping them navigate through the maze of Intelligent-Building options and solutions. Recently, ESD has formed a strategic partnership with Softweb Solutions Inc. to build an Intelligent Building Software Platform to make buildings smart and more livable. The new team brings decades of experience to the task.
ESD’s Intelligent Building Group has already worked with many major companies, and as more stakeholders embrace the business case for Intelligent Buildings’ economic, environmental and experiential outcomes, this number will quickly rise.
Top advantages of Intelligent Buildings
- Operating and maintenance costs drop
- Energy expenses fall while building sustainability increases
- Occupant satisfaction, comfort and control jumps
Overall, these outcomes spur tenant demand, heighten competitive advantage and enhance assets.
Examples of Intelligent Buildings are increasing all around. In the retail space, rentals are becoming dynamic. Thanks to sensor technology, mall owners can now charge tenants based on how many visitors they drive in front of stores rather than by a square-foot contract. In the hospitality industry, customers check in to hotels via their mobile devices, and their “key” resides on their screen – they never need to go to the front desk.
The idea of Intelligent Buildings has been around since the 1980s, but it’s taken off in the last five years because of the ubiquity of Wi-Fi, the Internet of Things, secure networks and the availability of cost-effective building sensors. We’re literally at the threshold of the long-term potential of Intelligent Buildings – and this new group will help us enjoy successes in the field that couldn’t have been dreamed of in the 20th century.
