The future belongs to smart, connected buildings. The use of technology and data is transforming the way buildings are built and operated and Total Facilities is backing the smart buildings movement with this dedicated innovation zone on the show floor.
The Smart Zone is designed as a thriving hub of technological innovation which presents new technologies and solutions to help you create smarter, greener buildings. The new zone offers visitors a dedicated environment to look for integrated and cloud-based solutions to improve operations and deliver business value.
According to industry research, IoT technologies will be more pervasive in smart commercial buildings than anywhere else over the next three years. This zone is designed to deliver visitors seeking industry-class solutions and strategic advice on how to use technology and data to better understand and manage their building performance.
The zone will showcase exhibitors that provide hardware and software solutions in the following areas:
Big data analytics

How to make your smart building drive profits up
Maintenance and upkeep of building assets once required plenty of hands on work by facility managers to ensure everything kept running smoothly. But the advent of smart buildings is changing this, with the Internet of Things now allowing for sensors and data-farming devices to be installed in any asset of a building.
The new Royal Adelaide Hospital: futuristic and state-of-the-art
The new Royal Adelaide Hospital (RAH), which opened in September 2017 in the city’s CBD, is arguably Australia’s most technologically-advanced hospital. From its fleet of robots (aka, Automated Guided Vehicles) that carry around supplies, food and equipment to its pneumatic tube automated internal delivery system, the 800 bed, environmentally-friendly hospital is a harbinger of the future of healthcare.
