A holistic approach to assessing smart buildings
The commercial smart building market expected to grow to $70 billion by 2023 according to reports from CABA, Navigant Research and Markets and Markets. But how are building owners developing their investment strategies without a common, industry-accepted methodology to measuring building intelligence?
To drive wider adoption of smart buildings, the industry needs a comprehensive, reliable, and measurable framework of assessment criteria for smart buildings. TIA’s Smart Building Program features an industry-led working group that is collaborating to establish this holistic assessment criteria. The goal is to help building owners understand the current operational intelligence levels of their property and provide guidance on how to make it smarter while maximizing the ROI in upgrades and future technology deployments.
$70 BILLION BY 2023
The commercial Smart Building market is expected to grow to $70 billion by 2023 according to reports from CABA, Navigant Research and Markets and Markets.
The definition of a smart building has evolved over time, but only when all building systems are fully integrated and sharing data, so they be managed through a single pane of glass with minimal human intervention, can a building truly be considered smart by today’s expectations.
Developed with the combined working experience of TIA and UL, the SPIRE smart building assessment and rating program is designed to help evaluate the performance and technologies of smart buildings. It’s based on a new, industry-driven framework that’s aimed at improving smart building performance and occupant experience.
The TIA Smart Building Working Group
TIA facilitates an industry work group for smart buildings which is tasked with developing and maintaining the assessment criteria for the SPIRE Smart Building Assessment and Rating Program. With stakeholders from all aspects of the smart building ecosystem, we ensure objective, holistic and technology neutral criteria for the industry to leverage in verifying the performance of smart buildings.
Get a closer look at SPIRE, the industry's first holistic smart buildings assessment and rating program. This 2-part webinar series will educate viewers on the six categories of assessment criteria and measurements. Part 1 will dive into Connectivity, Cybersecurity, and Life & Property Safety.
