This report published in July 2021 discusses the key criteria for designing and constructing new smart buildings which include cybersecurity, modeling capability using digital twins, and the use of smart technologies for building monitoring and control. To ensure buildings remain future-proofed, the new technology that is installed must interact easily with other devices/control systems. Siemens Smart Infrastructure unit is proposed as a source of expertise for organizations intending to design and construct new buildings.
