4 reasons why you should make your new building smarter
Francesca Brady

Very soon, we will live in a world where buildings, even entire cities, will be connected to a network. As such, the business advantages of a new generation of smart systems simply cannot be ignored anymore.

Here are four factors that should be considered when you are weighing up the pros and cons of deploying a smart system inside a real estate project:

Finding and retaining tenants

Information technologies have evolved to the point where they are involved in almost every sphere of human activity. Consequently, expectations are rising when it comes to buying an apartment or renting office space and smart capabilities are rapidly becoming the new standard. By the time your new building is complete, it might be difficult to find anyone willing to pay premium prices for space that doesn’t feature a smart system that provides benefits to the prospective tenants. This could be as simple as environmental information per floor or floor area - i.e. temperature, humidity, CO2, VOC’s, Light and noise.

Attracting millennials and young professionals

Wage earners under 35 are considered to be attractive tenants since they are likely to have long careers ahead of them and some level of disposable income. Needless to say, this age group is exceptionally technology-oriented and expect nothing short of excellence when it comes to their personal living space. They aspire to work in smart offices, live in smart homes and to constantly be in touch with the world from one device or another. If you want your new building to appeal to the younger generations, it is imperative that you equip it accordingly.

Anticipating future environmental standards

As environmental awareness and standards rapidly gains more mainstream support, it is almost a given that real estate owners will need to adapt to more stringent rules in the near future. Having an Asset Mapping system can make the transition easier, with capabilities in sensors that measure and help optimise, temperature, air quality, water and electricity usage. In addition to ensuring compliance with regulations, active monitoring of environmental impact will also make the building a healthier place for its occupants.

Empowering home-based businesses

The boundary between residential and business space is becoming blurred, as many people now work from home. As a landlord, you should be receptive to this movement and aim to make your building business-friendly even if it consists predominantly of family-sized apartments. If residents already have the facilities they require, they’ll have no reason to move away when their financial prospects improve.

Although it initially costs more to construct a smart residential building, any difference will be offset long term by cheaper maintenance and higher rental opportunities. From a short to mid-term perspective, the Asset Mapping system provides a rapid ROI, generally within 12 to 18 months. Any savings beyond that represent pure profit.
