Executive Summary

The vision for the economics of smart buildings goes beyond simply efficiency of operation, or building in sustainability features. A vital part of the vision is providing tenants with new services that, in turn, open new monetization opportunities. This is often referred to as buildings-as-a-platform by analogy with cloud services or cars. This report analyses smart features that can be leveraged to create new services for tenants and the monetization opportunities that may accompany them. This strategic focus report will help executives across the real estate value chain to get an early read on this emerging trend that will become increasingly relevant over the next five years.
