ABEC and Sustainable Development
Today is World Engineering Day for Sustainable Development. ABEC are proud signatories of the UN Global Compact, and we support the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals. We believe our company is not just here for monetary success, but also to contribute to building a better and more equitable future. Engineers have been changing the world for millennia. Emerging technology, combined with engineers’ vision and innovation allows us to address some of our planet’s most pressing concerns. Urbanisation and climate change combined mean that building resilient and smart cities, made up of smart buildings that can adapt in an agile manner to respond to needs and demands is critical. Smart buildings can support resilient cities in several ways:
1. Energy efficiency:
Smart buildings are designed to use energy more efficiently, which can help reduce energy costs and carbon emissions. This is important for resilient cities that must withstand climate change and other environmental challenges.
2. Improved occupant comfort:
Smart buildings can use sensors and other technologies to monitor indoor air quality, temperature, and lighting levels to create a more comfortable and healthier indoor environment for occupants.
3. Enhanced building security:
Smart buildings can use advanced security systems to protect against intruders, fires, and other hazards. This can help ensure the safety of occupants and protect valuable assets.
4. Data-driven decision-making:
Smart buildings can generate large amounts of data about their operations and occupants, which can be used to inform decision-making about building management, energy use, and other factors. This enables more effective planning and response to emergencies.
5. Integration with smart city systems:
Smart buildings can be integrated with other smart city systems such as transportation, waste management, and emergency response to create a more integrated and responsive urban infrastructure.
ABEC is responding to these needs and demands by helping our customers work ‘smarter’.
ABEC SmartView acts as a middleware platform allowing a vast range of third-party devices, sensors, hardware, and software to operate together providing a unified view of a building’s performance on a single pane of glass view.
