A holistsic approach to assessing smart buildings
The commercial smart building market expected to grow to $70 billion by 2023 according to reports from CABA, Navigant Research and Markets and Markets. But how are building owners developing their investment strategies without a common, industry-accepted methodology to measuring building intelligence?
To drive wider adoption of smart buildings, the industry needs a comprehensive, reliable, and measurable framework of assessment criteria for smart buildings. TIA’s Smart Building Program features an industry-led working group that is collaborating to establish this holistic assessment criteria. The goal is to help building owners understand the current operational intelligence levels of their property and provide guidance on how to make it smarter while maximizing the ROI in upgrades and future technology deployments.

WHAT IS A SMART BUILDING?
The definition of a smart building has evolved over time, but only when all building systems are fully integrated and sharing data, so they be managed through a single pane of glass with minimal human intervention, can a building truly be considered smart by today’s expectations.
Developed with the combined working experience of TIA and UL, the SPIRE smart building assessment and rating program is designed to help evaluate the performance and technologies of smart buildings. It’s based on a new, industry-driven framework that’s aimed at improving smart building performance and occupant experience.
TIA'S SMART BUILDING PROGRAM IS MADE POSSIBLE, IN PART, BY SUPPORT FROM OUR FOUNDING SPONSORS:
The shift to intelligent buildings starts with a new way of thinking around how we design, plan, construct and maintain buildings. When network infrastructure is prioritized at the same level as other building utilities, the result is a safer, more sustainable and productive environments for building occupants.
Our white paper explores our new holistic smart building assessment criteria. Take a dive into each category and how, together, they account for a holistic view of smart building performance.

AMERICAN CITY AND COUNTY: THE CONNECTED FUTURE OF SMART CITIES STARTS WITH SMART BUILDINGS
Smart City initiatives are emerging here in the U.S. and around the globe. Forward leaning cities from Seattle to Singapore to London are expected to spend nearly $124 billion this year on smart city initiatives, an increase of 18.9 percent from 2019, according to a recent IDC report.
In order to have smart cities, it’s important to understand the most fundamental part of them – smart buildings. They are the foundational “building blocks” that will enable a true transformation of our cities through which we’ll have safe, sustainable, connected environments for the majority of the world’s population. But as buildings get smarter across the world, there is a missing element needed to drive wider and measurable progress – a universal, holistic approach to assessing a building’s intelligence, or “smartness.”
