Benefits of using a technology partner to deliver an intelligent infrastructure
Employees, tenants, and customers want technology to improve their experiences within the buildings you deliver, and they will make decisions about where they work, spend their money, and devote their time accordingly. You need intelligent infrastructures to meet your customers’ and building occupants’ needs and increasing expectations.
Delivering smart buildings to enhance your reputation and strengthen your bottom line
Every day, you’re focused on your business:
- Mitigating risk
- Controlling cost
- Maintaining safety on job sites
- Meeting project deadlines
- Maintaining your reputation
But, building technology is changing rapidly and redefining what owners want and expect out of buildings you’re creating. They expect you to not only be aware of the latest technology, but to deliver those technologies in a way that prepare buildings for tomorrow. In short: Your reputation depends on your understanding of emerging building technologies and your ability to deliver tomorrow’s smart building.
Do you know what’s behind this shift? We do. Digitalization.
Building owners and operators don’t always realize that if the GC doesn’t put the intelligent infrastructure in place today, the owners won’t be able to take advantage of significant cost savings and analytics down the road. You need to be prepared to help your customers build for the future.
The results illustrate that there is not one single driver for intelligent building technologies. Vendors must be able to demonstrate broad capabilities to meet customer expectations.
Key Takeaway: Employees, tenants and customers all expect technology to improve their in-building experience, and they will make decisions on where they work and spend money and time accordingly.
The need for smart buildings driven by an intelligent infrastructure is due to several factors including labor.
- The US Bureau of Labor Statistics has predicted that a significant number of HVACR mechanics and technicians will need to be hired in the future.
- A 7% increase in the HVAC workforce is projected by 2020—but 12.4% of the existing workforce is approaching retirement age
Instead, you can partner with a proven technology partner who can keep you and your customers up-to-date about the newest industry resources, smart building infrastructure, and the future of buildings. Working in tandem with a technology partner early in the project cycle can:
- reduce change orders during construction
- assist in value engineering for the project
- help analyze projects for scope gaps
- plan for communications and integration technologies
Intelligent Infrastructure Solutions is Siemens’ solution to deliver and operate a smart building. We do this by leveraging or installing an intelligent infrastructure that allows us to collect and analyze data and then create actionable insights.
An intelligent infrastructure reduces capital and operating expenditures, increases system performance, enhances staff productivity, and prepares your customer’s building to meet today’s demands while adapting to tomorrow’s changes.
