These are the Most Advanced Facilities to Date.



Smart building tech, as a market, is valued well into the trillions. The potential to give facilities an artificial intelligence, to promote productivity, has already seen hard, current results. What are the best and brightest examples of these “smart buildings/facilities?” What applications, features, and platforms do these structures have that are lacking in less advanced facilities? 


Well, let’s jump in then, and learn about the Most Advanced Facilities to Date:


  • The Edge — The Netherlands: What Bloomberg Business called “the smartest building in the world,” The Edge makes a strong case. It has LED sensors that track and report humidity and temperature. The Edge can use security cameras, and it’s internal platform to camera-verify users coming into the garage (through neat license-plate scanning.) The Edge as a facility uses 70% less electricity than the typical office building. All of its occupants love the app-to-dashboard that lets users link their tablet, computer, etc. to any monitor seamlessly. The Edge should be re-named “The Gap,” because it is well ahead of other facilities in all aspects of architectural advancement. It prides itself on being the “world’s most sustainable building.” 




  • Bahrain World Trade Center — Manama, Bahrain: Since it’s inception in 2008, the BWTC has made huge advances in the way people operate and work in facilities. The BWTC has reduced carbon emissions by 55,000 cubic kgC per each development year with it’s implementation of high-speed wind turbines. The facilities within allow digital memberships that allow occupant to easily go from conference room, to work room, to any of the restaurants/hotels with heightened ease. The BWTC is managed by Cushman and Wakefield, as it is a lot of property to manage. 




  • The David Browner Center — Berkeley, California: The mission statement of the David Browner Center is a simple one; “inform, inspire, and educate” individuals on social equality and ecological welfare. The DBC itself walks the walk, as the building is made of 53% recycled materials, along with other architectural features to maximize airflow and reduce energy use. Beyond other facilities, the DBC makes sure that outside viewers know that they found a way to make the seemingly impossible of sustainability very possible, and do-able. 




  • The Leadenhall Building — London, United Kingdom: It takes only 30 seconds to get from the ground floor to the 44th in the Leadenhall Building. Name the 2015 Building of the Year, the Leadenhall Building is young, but is taking huge strides in the way people utilize architecture. Along with low-flow water fixtures, there are close to 300 energy monitors within the Leadenhall. It is an ambitious use of space, as the Leadenhall is over 500,000 square feet of innovation. 


Each building has it’s own unique attributes, but what do they have in common? Well they all reside in heavily-populated areas perfect for business,networking and collaboration. Most importantly, they answer the needs of “2015-ers” and beyond. They’re sustainable. These facilities utilize digital/smart technology. They make use of space as much as humanly possible. They are the answer to the problems that society currently is tangled in.


And that’s why they are the most advanced facilities to date.
