Smart buildings are becoming increasingly prevalent in both commercial and residential settings as technology continues to advance and the desire for greater efficiency, sustainability, and comfort grows. They have the potential to make a significant impact on energy conservation and environmental sustainability while enhancing the quality of life for occupants.

However, a smart building is never truly smart on its own. An MSI ensures that smart features work within a fully functional framework, while hitting the environmental, health and safety and user experience standards of accreditations such as SmartScore and WELL v2.

With an MSI in the mix, commercial landlords can ensure they’re making a worthwhile investment in the long-term best interests of their buildings.

Without an MSI to oversee the early phases of a build, it is difficult to plan the smart building infrastructure in tandem with the construction programme. What if problems with the building systems ability to integrate are discovered late in the project? There’s a danger that an MSI cannot retrofit a solution without stretching the budget. Then smart building efficiencies become undeliverable, worsening the experience for both landlords and tenants.

This ownership is critical to ensure that the final solution meets the desired outcomes for a building – rather than just ticking boxes on a technical wish-list.
