In Telia’s recent report, Digitalization of Buildings in the Nordics and Baltics , 87 percent of building owners see an urgent need for, and great value in, digitalization of the industry. But 70 percent had not yet started their digitalization journey. To support the real-estate industry and building owners in their digitalization and IoT efforts, Telia releases a Smart Building Buyer’s Guide.
The Coronavirus pandemic changed the dynamics of the real-estate industry to the core in a matter of weeks, as working from home became the new normal. But the challenges existed even before the pandemic, with Increasing urbanization, environmental awareness and the ever-growing digital demands of tenants. And the need for the industry to embrace digital tools is vital to staying competitive.
“Smart buildings that make use of data insights and IoT-enabled services can support real-estate owners in optimizing their operations, reduce energy consumption and increase both sustainability and profitability,” says Telia’s Head of Industry Joscha Schmidt. “Such services also create better and safer living or working conditions for tenants. But many building owners have become stuck, not knowing how to move ahead with their digitalization plans. This Smart Building Buyer’s Guide can support real-estate and facility owners in moving ahead.”
The guide identifies what a smart building entails and what it will take to get there. The aim is to help unlock cost savings and create new value.
The guide is divided into three chapters and includes a checklist to get started. The chapters are “Why – The value of a smart building and use cases”, “What – What you need to have in place from a functional perspective” and “How - How do you bring it all together and make things start to happen”.
