Looking Beyond COVID-19: Office buildings in China to become smarter at improving user and visitor health and safety

Shaun Brodie • 4/15/2020

Smart office buildings today are buildings that enable data-based management systems to function.

Fundamentally, these systems facilitate the collection of data via the Internet of Things (IoT) and connected hardware, such as sensor devices. Data is then analysed using specialised software and, from this analysis, resulting building management work actions are disseminated to address specific property-related issues. When these actions are carried out in a timely manner, good data-based management systems generally result in heightened landlord and user satisfaction. They also help reduce risk and enhance cost efficiency associated with the property.

Really smart office buildings are only just appearing in China. Many more will follow.

Fundamentally, very smart office buildings are buildings which are able to independently integrate IoT software and hardware and, in turn, learn system and user behaviour.

Truly smart office buildings will be able to add value to owners and occupiers in China in so many ways, but six key aspects are:

  • Cost reduction;
  • User productivity enhancement;
  • Environmental sustainability augmentation;
  • Talent retention and attraction;
  • Wellbeing enrichment, and;
  • Brand improvement.
