Smart building can give a new and innovative definition to your organization.
The ultimate goal of any organization is to gain maximum customer satisfaction. The smart building can be the best possible option to enhance service quality delivered to the customers.
Its main motive is to merge business with the latest cutting-edge technology to give the best experience to employees as well as to the customers.
4 pillars of a smart building are:
- Big data analysis
- Decision making
Impact of Smart building on-
Integrated facility management services also affect the revenue generation by providing a streamlined way to boost the performance with efficient utilization of time, resource and manpower.
A smart building can help the facility managers to achieve all these benefits by accessing real-time information and with efficient utilization of resources :
Sustainability: IMF ensures to provide the social, environmental and economic approach for the benefit of the company while considering the fact of sustainability.
Save the time: The company outsourced the FM services to one provider, having a single point of contact that actually saves the time and helps to avoid micromanagement.
Maintain the value of human resources: FM service provider ensures to manage the consistency and output generated by an employee at a minimum cost.
Better Communication: By providing better communication it maintains the transparency.
Eliminate duplicate functions: the efficient working strategy of FM services eliminate the duplicity of functions.
More flexibility: It offers reliability, accountability, and flexibility at its best.
Technical Advancement: Technology is changing rapidly and this development influence productivity and ultimately the growth of the company. So there is a need to monitor the changes required in this domain.IMF shows a great impact on it by looking after the mandatory replacement of the hardware and software components which encourages automation and will directly ensure to deliver a good quality product at a reasonable cost.
The automation reduces the manual efforts but on the other hand, it also requires a specific skill set to deal with it because it is the era of cutting-edge competition where everyone is competing to provide best services to their customers.
Commercialization: IFM majorly focuses on commercialization because advancement, innovation, and specialization make the product different from the crowd in the market that lead to the increment in its sales.
Effective utilization of resources: IFM utilizes the available resources of the company in the best possible manner and looks after the demand and cost required for the resources that are not currently available in the company.
Team Coordination: Its the basic responsibility of the facility management team to ensure smooth coordination among team members which is the most important factor that should be taken care of for creating a healthy environment in the workplace.
An office is not just an infrastructure it is made by the workers of that organization.
For taking the business to new heights the employees determination to work and satisfaction from the job plays an essential role.
Every employee needs a healthy and positive working environment to do their work.
Smart building is proving all the facilities to develop a healthy surrounding for an employee to work with a fresh mind that will enhance their working performance.
The smart building uses VRF technology.
This technology has a vast domain of applications, it can be used in medical facilities as well as at office premises also.
VRF is able to provide the full range variable capacity of delivering a specific amount of conditioning according to the zone demand.
Energy usage fluctuations are one of the major challenge faced by commercial buildings. It is because of the absence of a variable capacity compressor that helps to achieve temperature satisfaction through the traditional system.
VRF is majorly concerned with the load conditions.
Integrated controls and sensors can be used with VRF systems for measuring the load requirement as per the individual cooling and heating zones. The compressor is said to be the heart of VRF that manage its speed to sustain the desired temperature.
Why buildings should use VRF Technology?
Installation of VRF offers multiple benefits to the facility managers.
The target of managers is to achieve lower utility bills, and VRF system helps them to achieve this by giving leverage to increase energy efficiency. It provides almost 25% increment in the performance of energy as compared to a conventional HVAC system.
It becomes possible with the utilization of inverter compressor technology used with least ductwork demand.
Originally, this technology was used to deliver flexibility in design but now it also provides excellent control to give personalized comfort to its users.
What is the need for smart buildings?
Smart buildings are equipped with highly advances sensors that help to reduce the operating expenses of other hardware devices that can be beneficial for the company to focus more on services and revenue generation.
Intelligent Control over building system and workflow that will impact the productivity and working environment.
