Smart Buildings

A holistic approach to assessing smart buildings

The global smart building market expected to grow to $215 billion by 2030 according to reports from Verified Market Research. But how are building owners developing their investment strategies without a common, industry-accepted methodology to measuring building intelligence?

To drive broader adoption of smart buildings, it is crucial for the industry to have a comprehensive, reliable, and measurable framework of assessment criteria. TIA's Smart Building Program offers a solution with its industry-led working group that has established this all-encompassing assessment criteria. The main objective is to assist building owners in understanding the current levels of operational intelligence in their properties, while providing guidance and a roadmap for the transition to smart buildings. Additionally, this program ensures a return on investment for future technology deployments.

WHAT IS A SMART BUILDING?

The concept of a smart building has evolved over time. However, true smartness can only be achieved when all building systems are seamlessly integrated and share data, allowing them to be effortlessly managed through a single interface with minimal human involvement.

SPIRE Smart Building Assessment and Rating with TIA-Developed Assessment Criteria
