In an effort to find innovative ways to implement smart building technology, some companies are looking to partnerships. Edge Technologies entered into an alliance with the International WELL Building Institute and wellness-focused real estate developer Delos in order to help analyze data from its latest smart projects while giving WELL and Delos access to important post-occupancy information at scale. Edge has identified 13 U.S. cities as targets for new development. This idea of “living labs” has also taken hold at HKS Architects. Using a LEED energy-compliance model, HKS has been able to monitor trends and correct building or workspace performance through a front-end dashboard. This kind of system is key for observing positive and negative facility performance and exploring new ideas.
