Building Tomorrow Today

Sep 2018

Are green building practices successful? Are today’s green buildings effective?

Green building
With so many standards, best practices and compliance norms implemented over the last two decades, have green building practices been successful? Are today’s green buildings effective?

While green building initiatives over the years have been successful in many areas – creating awareness, promoting adoption, and influencing the energy efficient materials market and design practices – they rarely address building operations. Often green buildings are not completely equipped to provide a dynamic response to daily building concerns such as occupant needs, operating policies and space management changes.

So what exactly is missing from today’s green buildings that prevents them from being 100 percent effective? And how can you add in the missing ingredient? Find out here.

Integrated security strategy key for India’s smart cities

As we put in place various security systems to ensure the safety of our cities, we also encounter the complexity of dealing with many disparate systems. The key to this, as shared by our expert Rajeev Samanta, at the BW Businessworld Smart & Safe Cities Conclave in New Delhi, is an integrated security approach able to pull information from separate security and IT systems into an intelligent central platform that acts upon detected intrusions by raising alarms to the appropriate departments.
