Smart Buildings Around the World

The smart building industry has expanded to a great extent, and is expected to provide numerous opportunities for the individuals as more advanced technologies arise. According to a report, the global smart building market size is estimated to outstretch towards USD 47,481.81 million by 2026. As the market size grows to an advanced level, several remarkable cases are found where smart building technologies are applied.

The Edge in Amsterdam, The Netherlands

The Edge acquired a sustainability score of 98.36% from BREEAM due to its unique design which further incorporates technology advancement. The solar power is utilized through the use of solar panels, and generates more than enough electricity to be used within the building. Aquifer thermal energy storage pumps are activated via solar power as well, pumping cold or warm water then they are needed. The occupants are able to regulate the lights and climate through the use of mobile apps.

Burj Khalifa in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE)

Burj Khalifa is considered as the world's tallest building and UAE's smartest building. At the height of 828 meter (2,716.5 feet) and more than 160 floors, Burj Khalifa manifests Internet of Things (IoT) solutions as one of the smart buildings around the world. The automation system within the building monitors maintenance, air quality, temperature, and lighting process. Moreover, taking advantage of Honeywell's Enterprise Buildings Integrator (EBI) system, the whole building system is unified while smart devices are connected as well. Burj Khalifa brings technological advancements in efficiency, responsiveness, and operational control.

One Taikoo Place in Quarry Bay, Hong Kong

One Taikoo Place is an artificial Intelligence (AI)- and Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled smart building in Hong Kong. The building mainly operates through a smart platform "Neuron" developed by Arup, which transforms the whole building operation system eventually leading to sustainability. According to Don Taylor, director of Swire Properties, the "Neuron" drives efficiency, while reducing carbon footprint and promoting wellness. Further, the energy saving is realized through data analytics, machine learning, and predictive maintenance.

The Crystal in Newham, East London

The Crystal operates an energy management system by Siemens, which regulates the whole electrical and mechanical systems within the building. Specifically, multiple systems are connected with approximately 3,500 data points in terms of Heating, Ventilation, and Air-Conditioning (HVAC system, weather station, lighting, solar thermal system, etc. Ground heat pumps are activated for heating and cooling systems via use of thermal wheels. Rainwater is collected and gets filtered and disinfected to be used. The Crystal is a 100% electric building, where 20% of electricity comes from solar power with a secure monitoring system.

Glumac Shanghai Office in Shanghai, China

Glumac Shanghai office holds the first Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) v4 Platinum building in China. It is also considered as the first Net-Zero energy, Water, and Carbon office in Asia. the renovation process is well accomplished with minimum environmental impact, with successfully achieved sustainability. Glumac Shanghai office further results in net positive for energy, water, and carbon through the energy-efficiency and sustainable building technologies.
