Smart Buildings Magazine has started a monthly vox pop, asking one topical question to the industry.
This month’s question is:
Will smart buildings change the role of the facility manager?
“Smart buildings will definitely have an impact on the role of a facility manager.
The information provided from all of the sensing devices in the building will support the facility manager role and give full visibility of what is happening in the building. This should enable fast resolution of any issues and facilitate day to day upkeep.
There may also be a split between physical facilities management and the data management side.
There will be a vast amount of work that can be done through the smart control environment that will not require a physical visit.”
