Executive Summary

This report provides building technology vendors with an analysis of real estate occupiers’ perceptions of a smart building and their willingness to pay a premium. It draws on our 2019 corporate survey where we interviewed 304 senior real estate decision-makers at organizations that occupy mid to large real estate portfolios globally. The report addresses some of the hottest questions across the smart building technology sector. For example, what value do real estate executives perceive in a smart building? What premium, if any, will firms pay to fit out a facility with smart building technology? This report is relevant for all technology vendors in the smart building market, including providers of BMS, CAFM, CMMS, building IoT platforms, IWMS and smart equipment.
