Connected Building Advantages For New Construction

Don’t miss a thing!

Connected buildings may be new, butConnected Building Advantages: Great Connections, Genius Investment they’re gaining popularity fast. What do they have that traditional facilities don’t? We believe they have two big advantages to offer.

The first is low investment up-front. The best time to commit to a connected building is during the design phase. This allows the systems to be planned along with the structure, eliminating a lot of headaches down the road. It also means an experienced commissioning provider can be brought on to guide your team through the construction process.

We’ve discussed the value of hiring a commissioning provider in a previous post and believe their value goes even further with connected buildings. Because they’re still a relatively new concept, having a team member who can draw on previous experience is invaluable.

The second connected building advantage is the ability to maintain long-term operational excellence. As much as any facility manager wants to conduct routine, thorough inspections, the truth is that inspection quality can suffer when time and money is at a premium. Connected buildings alleviate this pressure by giving facility managers the option of giving the job to outside experts. Their attention won’t waiver so your facility can stay optimized problems can be caught early.

Taking these two advantages into consideration, it’s easy to see why connected buildings are so in demand. They’re reliable, efficient, and need relatively low investment.
