Abstract

Intelligent buildings present a number of challenges. They must be responsive to people’s needs including their health and wellbeing; be sustainable in the use of resources as well as incorporating the most useful parts of the evolving technologies.

The Roadmap reviews these demands including the relationship of intelligent buildings to the infrastructures of towns and cities. The processes of planning, design, construction and facilities management are complex and require decision making that is clear but realises the strategic and tactical inputs required by all the stakeholders including the clients. Intelligent buildings are part of our history as well the future.

They are a distinguishing mark of civilisations worldwide. In the 21st century with increasing populations in cities buildings need to be places to work and live with pleasure and joy. Simple things like connecting with Nature give so much value. In the complex and high speed world we must not forget that simplicity has appeal to the human spirit besides being more durable in the long term.

This set of essays, which comprise the Roadmap written by members of the W098 Commission and CIBSE Intelligent Buildings Group opens the door to collective thought and ideas for now and the future.
