Today’s commercial buildings are undergoing a revolution as a convergence of policy, technology innovation, and market dynamics drive a new appetite for smart, resource-efficient facilities. While today’s architects and design firms are leveraging advanced materials and modeling tools to create new high performance buildings, emerging digital platforms are enabling facilities operators to optimize resource consumption while improving comfort and safety.
