Smart technology in the form of simulation software is increasingly used in the design of buildings and cities.

According to the World Economic Forum, “Wherever the new technologies have properly permeated the construction industry, the outlook is an almost 20 per cent reduction in total life cycle costs of a project, as well as substantial improvements in completion time, quality and safety.”
Technological innovations in building construction and management boost safety and are imperative to increase efficiencies, better automation, curb costs and minimise construction timelines. These improve margins for developers and ensure lower prices for customers as well provide increasingly safer homes.
Ripu Daman Sharma, Country Manager Sales, India Subcontinent, Lutron Electronics says, “Innovations come in various hues to improve the products and practices of the construction industry. They can be useful to implement green building norms, which are increasingly important to reduce the carbon footprints of various structures during construction itself. This is achieved by using energy-efficient technologies, alternative building materials and innovative construction techniques. Since such smart buildings entail lower energy and maintenance costs, within a few years the savings recoup the initial investments.”
He adds, “Smart technology in the form of simulation software is increasingly used in the design of buildings and cities with the aim of producing a built environment which achieves a high energy and environmental performance with a lesser need for technical systems and a lower energy demand during building operation.”
