RAISING THE IQ OF REAL ESTATE

BUILDING AUTOMATION – MAKING LIFE SMARTER

Buildings are becoming more intelligent all the time. And for good reason. After all, we spend most of our lives inside them – and that focuses our attention on the topics of comfort, convenience, efficiency and sustainability. In the course of digitalisation, networked technology made buildings intelligent. And they continue to get smarter every day. For developers and planners, advanced development is creating increasingly demanding tasks, such as the networking of buildings with one another. 

In other words: all building components are digitalised and communicate with each other via data streams. In that context, we are now transitioning from “green buildings” to holistically equipped “blue buildings.” The underlying goal is to optimise in equal measure the economic and ecological balance sheet of buildings along with their social factors over the course of their life cycle. 

BLUE IS THE NEW GREEN

Signs of structural transformation are everywhere. And the construction and real estate industry is no exception. Energy efficiency is no longer the only dominant topic – it has long since been joined by many other considerations. Construction is increasingly subject to the holistic aims of sustainability – a new megatrend of growing significance. Green buildings are becoming blue buildings and expanding the planning grid. Users, their health, and well-being factors are the new coordinates by which the next quality standard is measured. While trimming the economic and ecological data situation of a building at the same time. This is making construction projects into interdisciplinary joint ventures that rely on streamlined interfaces and more efficient project management.

BUILDING ON A NEW QUALITY STANDARD

ECOLOGICAL CONSTRUCTION

FOR THE QUALITY OF LIFE'S SAKE

First and foremost, the term “sustainable construction” means reducing energy consumption throughout the life of the building. The ecological balance sheet over the entire value creation chain is of increasing interest here. Because the production of the construction materials used should also conserve natural resources and follow the “minimum principle,” e.g. in the use of water. At the same time, buildings must be designed for a high quality of life and ensure the maximum well-being of their occupants – a broad new range of standards driven by climate change and by new expectations regarding comfort.

INTELLIGENT BUILDINGS

BOOSTING IQ EVEN IN THE PLANNING STAGE

Modern buildings are holistic systems whose separate components are already smart and digitally matched to one another during the construction planning phase. The extent of their artificial intelligence depends on the intended use and on the building services. In any case, these automated assistance systems significantly increase the efficiency of complex real estate and satisfy the continuously increasing demands placed on their ecological, economic and sociocultural performance.

CONSISTENT NETWORKING

HIGH VALUES WANTED

In building automation, network density is a determining factor already during the planning phase. It should achieve high values to provide conditions for consistent digitalisation. As a basis for calculation, 3Com founder Bob Metcalfe developed a formula that can be used to determine the ideal value: V ∝ n². The value (V) of a network is proportional to the square of the number of connected users (n). Prerequisite for an optimally functioning network involving all deployed components is the number of its users. The companies of LN EDUCATION GROUP can rely on a vast industrial network. Our planet24.education portal provides you with access to that network and lays the educational foundation for the networked development of building automation: Prerequisite for an optimally functioning network involving all deployed components.

DIGITAL BUILDING PLANNING

FACILITATED BY BIM

In the construction sector, tasks are becoming increasingly complex. To complete them in a timely manner, modern project planning – especially where larger projects are concerned – relies heavily on the BIM method. It stands for Building Information Modelling and works on the basis of digital twins. BIM facilitates the planning process digitally through object-oriented intelligent building models based on an interdisciplinary data pool. Which means that a single access provides all relevant data for planning, construction and later building use. In the context of construction projects, this enables realistic simulation already in advance. That improves the reliability of several functions: cost estimation, scheduling, project management and building operation.

TOP SPECIALISTS

THANKS TO HIGH PERFORMANCE LEVELS

Switching, actuating, signalling, counting, measuring, controlling, regulating and calculating – these are some of the classic tasks of building automation. Requirements in this area vary widely and demand specialists with excellent qualifications – ideally throughout the life cycle of buildings, starting with their planning. It takes extensive practical expertise in heating, ventilation, lighting and alarm systems along with many other building automation elements. And this is where our learning and training systems start, initially covering the fundamentals of electricity supply and wiring installation. Building on that foundation, students learn about smart system technology and communication technology, whereby the range of topics expands continuously. This enhances the practical skills of the electronics engineer for wiring and building installation technology and applications engineering no less than that of the power supply and wiring installation electrician.

CLIMBING THE LEARNING CURVE

TO A SENSE OF ACHIEVEMENT

The requirements of modern building installations are high. Maximum energy efficiency, security, flexibility and extreme comfort and convenience are all “musts” that intelligent building systems have to deliver. The expertise that trainees must acquire is no less extensive. Through optimal communication of the individual topics, our various training systems are designed to enable each trainee to climb the learning curve at their own pace. The work with professional planning software and the creation of a 3D model can be learned rapidly and soon brings a sense of achievement. Moreover, our multimedia experimentation and training system “UniTrain” uses a specially developed course software to guide students through theoretical background information and realistic training exercises on electricity supply and wiring installation, electrical engineering and electronics.
