Is a Smart Building a Sustainable Building?


The urgency of embedding sustainable thinking across all aspects of the built environment is undeniable. A sustainable building is one that reduces or eliminates negative impacts and can, in fact, create positive results for our natural environment. A smart building is one that delivers outstanding outcomes for all users through digital technology. Working with over 900 developers, landlords and occupiers, WiredScore has developed an industry standard definition of what makes a smart building. The relationship between Cushman & Wakefield and Wiredscore brings together cutting edge technology, real estate knowledge and insight, scale of talent and the opportunity to work together with the biggest names in the built environment.
