Where are all the Intelligent Buildings?

Defining intelligence in the built environment has been difficult because there are many entities claiming to have a market-capturing solution. As value chain competitors stake a claim for a piece of the intelligent building market, we believe value is derived through purpose. For this reason, we believe the value of intelligent building solutions comes from having a strategic purpose, developing a business case through master planning, and implementing the plan over a period of time while reconciling outcomes to prove / optimize value.

Recently, Realcomm published an article I developed asking the question: “Where are all the intelligent buildings?” The article reflects on why progress in the design, product development, construction, and operations of intelligent buildings is advancing incrementally and adoption is lower than might be expected.
