Book Description :

This book is a resumption of the work “Integrated M/E Design: Building Systems Engineering” published by Anil Ahuja in 1997. Together with an international group of authors from the engineering, urban planning, and architecture fields, Mr. Ahuja discussed new trends and paradigms in the smart buildings and smart city sectors and extended the topic of the previous publication from the building to the entire city. A smart, sustainable building is not just about the building itself. There are things happening in the inside of the building and on the outside. A smart building connects the inside with the outside, provides efficiencies on both sides, synchronizes the outside infrastructure with its inside systems, and integrates nature and its occupants in its design. A smart building doesn’t just provide technology solutions. It is about constant exchange between the inside and the outside of the building, the contribution of the building to the quality of the entire neighborhood and the rest of the city, how the smart building can connect people in a sharing community, and how technology can be the key to make it happen.

Book Description :

The term 'Smart Home' generates a lot of buzz in recent times. Most of the times, the idea resonates around ad-hoc solutions that convert your home into a digital gadget. Google, Apple, Amazon, etc. has lots of solutions that make homes more fun and entertaining in recent times. However, just a few people have given Home Technology a very holistic thought. An iPhone is a unified product, marrying hardware and software - same as (recent) automobiles. But when it comes to homes, there is a party that is just concerned with the Building Structure/Delivery; and yet another party concerned with Building Technology. This brings about a divide and ends up keeping homes from being unified solutions that they should be. This book challenges that status quo. It began by exploring the concepts of Smart Homes. The Fundamentals, the Technology Foundations, the Structural Components, the Technological Components. The first part ended by offering some very Unique Innovations that are only possible with the Technology Foundations of Smart Building Technology. Such innovations as the use of Direct Electricity (Solar), Operating Systems, Unified Cabling, etc. The second part of the book tells a (holistic) story of the 'Smart Home Delivery Company'. Imagine Apple for Smartphones or Mercedez for Automobiles. This started with the Planning Process; then to the Design Coordination; and then to the wider Value Chain; to the Prefabrication Process. It ended with the Management of the Smart Home Facility. The role of such transformational processes as Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a central theme of the second part of this book. The last part proffers solutions that are possible with Smart Building Technology. Again this is from a very holistic viewpoint. It summarizes the book in a very interactive way - taking the reader through the journey of purchasing a Unified Smart Home, in a similar way you purchase an iPhone. A very important takeaway from this book is that Smart Homes should holistically merge a Building Structure with the Building Technology - right from the design stage of the home. This concept can easily be extended to other types of buildings - Commercial, Entertainment, etc. We believe that by reading this book, you will gain a renewed sense of refreshment about the future of the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) sector.

Book Description :

General Services Administration (GSA) has been a pioneer in using Smart Building technologies but it has yet to achieve the full benefits of an integrated, enterprise-wide Smart Building strategy. In July 2008, GSA developed an initial briefing memorandum that identified five actions for a Smart Buildings feasibility study: (1) Identify and cluster the major building systems under consideration for a Smart Buildings initiative; (2) Identify GSA priorities for these clusters; (3) Plan for future adoption of Smart Building strategies by identifying compatible hardware; (4) Develop a framework for implementing and testing Smart Building strategies and converged networks; and (5) Document relevant GSA and industry initiatives in this arena. Based on this briefing memorandum, PBS and FAS retained consultants from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Noblis, and the Building Intelligence Group to evaluate the potential for Smart Buildings within GSA, and to develop this report. The project has included extensive interviews with GSA staff (See Appendix A), a review of existing GSA standards and documents, and an examination of relevant GSA and industry initiatives. Based on interviews with GSA staff and a review of GSA standards and documents, the project team focused on four goals for evaluating how Smart Building technology can benefit GSA: (1) Achieve Energy Efficiency Mandates--Use Smart Building technology as a tool to meet EISA 2007 and EO 13423 goals for energy efficiency. (2) Enhance Property Management--Deploy enterprise tools for improved Operations and Maintenance (O & M) performance and verification. (3) Implement Network as the Fourth Utility--Utilize a converged broadband network to support Smart Building systems and provide GSA clients with connectivity for voice, data and video. (4) Enhance Safety and Security--Harmonize Physical Access Control Systems (PACS) with Smart Building Systems.
