Real Estate & Technology Intersected: Connected Offices, Communities & Cities
In the intensely competitive real estate industry, companies, developers and cities are constantly looking for ways to improve efficiency, profitability and responsiveness . Smart building and community technologies offer building owners (city managers, owners, developers, property managers, institutional investors, etc.) and their tenants (companies, guests, shoppers, or any other user of a building) significant financial, environmental, and operational advantages.
What differentiates a “smart” community is the connectivity between disparate systems that improves the way people work, live and interact with buildings, security, transportation, communications, healthcare and education systems.
This class will demonstrate how incorporating technology into real estate and community building practices can help municipalities, owners, developers, and managers offer new services to generate revenue while improving quality of life and reducing operational expenditures: improved profitability, greater sustainability, and enhanced worker and resident satisfaction.
