I am currently a third year student studying for a BSc (Hons) in Real Estate Management in Oxford Brookes University.
The title for my dissertation is" The opportunities and potential benefits offered by intelligent buildings are being largely ignored by property professionals in the UK".
My aims regarding the subject are:
1. Define what an intelligent building is.
2. To make a case for intelligent buildings covering:
- capital costs
- running costs
- occupancy rates
- user/owner satisfaction
With reference to overseas markets
3. Reasons why so few intelligent buildings are built in the UK
what the barriers are from the point of view of:
- architects and designers
- property managers
- space agents
I would be greatful for any information that you think may be helpful to me or suggestions where I could locate any relevant information. This subject, intelligent buildings interests me greatly as I realize that this is where the future of buildings lie and I assure you I will in no way waste your time if you decide to help me.
