Smart building is one that :

  • Provides efficient and cost-effective structural environment through the optimization of four basic elements – structure, systems, services and management – and the interrelationships between them through focusing on the owner’s benefits and desired by them internal environment
  • Maximizes comfort of life of its inhabitants through focusing on the benefits of users and creating the desired internal environment for residents
  • Allows for the effective management of resources at minimum cost of living through focusing on managers’ and economic benefits and environmental sense to create the desired internal environment

Therefor:

  • structural environment should be productive, safe, healthy and thermally, acoustically and visually comfortable
  • building has the potential to serve future generations, sustainable development or posses adaptable capabilities throughout the building’s life cycle and protects the land and environmental resources
  • The financial aspect : with the limited expense of being built, the building still retains its market value
