The Top 5 Most Over-Engineered Building Components

whitePaper | November 14, 2019

When specifying the mechanical and electrical equipment for a building, it is easy to assume that extra capacity is a good thing, but it actually can be just as counterproductive as having undersized installations. In the first place, extra capacity comes at a higher upfront cost, which makes the building owner assume unnecessary expenses. There are also many types of equipment that experience performance issues when over-engineered, which can range from low energy efficiency to a diminished service life.

Digital Twin Cities: Framework and Global Practices

whitePaper | April 20, 2022

The continued growth and success of cities is one of the great triumphs of modern civilization. Cities are home to the majority of the world’s population and generate more than 80% of GDP. Rapid urbanization has also brought about new challenges as cities have struggled with congestion, pollution, increased carbon emissions, inequity and exposure to natural disasters such as floods and storms. The COVID-19 pandemic and climate change have further intensified these issues. The United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development sets out the goal of “building inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable cities and communities”. Whereas these goals may be universally accepted, the path to get there is not as clear. Innovation and empowerment of digital technology are critical to transforming our cities. Policy support and institutional change are also essential.
