Smart Building Benefits to Building Owners
Retrofitting buildings with Smart Technology improves energy efficiency and sustainability on the path to Net Zero and achieving ESG targets
Trusted partner delivering award-winning Smart Buildings to clients across the UK
What are Smart Building Benefits
to Building Owners, and how One Sight’s integrations and MSI experience unlocks limitless energy and health advantages
Smart enabled building control systems and IoT integration will have a significant impact on achieving reduced energy consumption on the UK’s route to achieving ESG targets and Net Zero buildings by 2050.
A Smart Building utilises IoT technology and open communication, by installing automated Building Management Systems (BMS), wireless sensors and data collection devices. These smart systems accumulate data to allow for real-time monitoring and control of all building systems, allowing for huge advantages to building owners, and the occupants that use them.
With all of your smart building systems enabled, a wealth of tangible benefits are at your fingertips. From reducing your energy consumption and lower operational costs, to improving occupant health and sustainability, making your building more attractive to tenants, occupants and investors.
Smart technology can also automate building management processes, improving security, monitoring access and increasing the value of your assets. In addition, using a integration framework that automatically updates can help improve cybersecurity and avoid cyberattacks.
Embracing this advanced technology now, enables building owners to be best-positioned to take advantage of these benefits and retain competitive advantage in the property market, as well as meeting valuable Net Zero and ESG targets in the UK.
Why you should invest in Smart Building technology
As of 2023, nearly 90% of non-domestic buildings in the UK do not have an optimised BMS (Building Management System), with the BMS responsible for between 60-80% of total energy consumption in a building. By Smart Enabling and optimising these systems, building owners can see up to a 40% reduction in energy usage. Conventional buildings face a range of problems as a result of limitations from traditional building designs and construction methodologies, however retrofitting with Smart Technology and IoT connectivity provides a future-proof solution that overcomes these exisiting pain points:
Reduced Energy Efficiency
Designed without a focus on energy and changes in operations over time, resulting in higher energy costs.
Lack of Building Data Insight
Conventional buildings have not been designed to collect data on performance and occupant behaviour, resulting in building managers being unable to make informed decisions to improve efficiency.
Limited Occupant Comfort
Lack of data to provide optimum working conditions, including lighting, temperature and indoor air quality. Resulting in reduced productivity and overall wellbeing.
No Building Automation System
Absense of automated systems to monitor and control building systems and processes.
Not enabled for Future Technology
Contruction and IT systems designed with limited flexibitlity to be adaptable for future changes and meeting regulations.
Smart Buildings Connect Systems & Devices to enable optimisation
Our solutions are based upon the Tridium Niagara Framework, which is a comprehensive software infrastructure that acts as a central console for connecting real-time operational data to the people and systems in smart buildings, data centers, industrial processes and smart cities. This open framework collects data from all of your separate BMS systems and devices, and normalises it into actionable controllable points in a single platform.
