If your business is considering upgrading its facility, or moving to or constructing a new one, be prepared to encounter “smart” buildings. A smart building is one equipped with sensors that gather and track information about energy usage. With this data, the building’s energy consumption can be more accurately tracked and regulated to lower costs. When buying or building a new facility, factor the long-term advantages of smart technology into the price. When leasing, inquire about whether and how smart features have been added.
