Tomorrow, buildings will be more than bricks and mortar. They are being designed with energy efficiency and conservation in mind. The integration of information technology into the design, construction and operation of buildings opens up possibilities for market innovation. Smart meters, smart LED’s and the latest information technologies empower building owners and create whole new markets for products which leverage data for improved quality and efficiency.
