Digital revolution, buildings coping with the challenge of the digital transition.
In a few years, the Internet has revolutionised the lives of individuals and companies, notably through connected objects. This change will continue and accelerate. We now have 15 billion connected objects; according to a study there will be between 50 and 80 billion of them in 2020*. This phenomenon is affecting the building sector, which must meet numerous challenges in the digital domain:
Respond to the expectations of users in matters of service
Ensure an optimal Internet connection to promote productivity
Protect the networks and systems of the building against cyber attacks
Satisfy the requirements for the scalability of equipment and thus increase their sustainability
Promote the integration of buildings into the Smart City, the digital and sustainable city, so that they can benefit from various innovations and contribute to the sharing of facilities.
The digital transition of the sector implies a new way of designing, building and operating the building. The human factor will also be at the centre of the concerns of this building, the purpose of which is to provide users with greater comfort, social connections and efficiency at work, while preserving the environment.
