SMART Buildings

Buildings typically consume 30–40 percent of all primary energy used. Over 80 percent of the environmentally harmful emissions from buildings are due to energy consumption during the times when the buildings are in use. 

Our concept of SMART (Sustainable, Measurable, Affordable, Resilient, Technology) means decreasing the number of components and materials, simplifying the design of necessary components and using the same component or system for different functions and optimizing the whole building, not the sub-units. Not only does SMART lead to investment savings but it also provides a more reliable system.

We will utilize our unique portfolio of technologies in our SMART Building projects. The SMART IoT, and technologies such as sensors; geothermal equipment and heating/cooling air pumps for the ground source and drilling installation applications; Intelligent energy storage battery system developed for PV solar and wind power installations into national or regional electric distribution grids; networked power management; solar panels and thin films; solar heat collectors; electric car stations and  battery swappings; vehicle to grid battery storage; onsite energy generation and storage; building information management; building automation systems; real-time demand management.

These projects will result in cost-effective building that can reduce energy consumption, and also lead to improved indoor climate and air quality. Not only does SMART lead to investment savings but it also provides a more reliable system.

Other principles include controlled ventilation and efficient heat recovery, improved thermal insulation and using structures as heat storage units.

Based on our diverse competence in economically efficient and environmentally friendly construction, together we enable the construction. We aim to combine several technologies for entire new and advanced solutions in terms of sustainable development.  

The concept and some features of the SMART Buildings will include:

  • Distributed energy production based on renewable sources solar, wind and biomass
  • Low-energy buildings, consumption less than 50% of that of conventional buildings
  • Waste recycling, minimizing waste amount and effective collection system
  • Water recycling, as closed as possible;
  • Electric vehicle charging and battery swapping, and biofuel stations
  • And more   

SMART Building Exchange (SBE)

We will develop a value network of partners that will enable the opening up new markets for large scale construction projects in the Americas, Europe and the emerging markets. To respond to this challenge, we have appointed a working group in Atlanta, Georgia, to investigate possibilities worldwide, to enhance the export of our SMART Building’ know-how into other markets.


As a result, new SMART Building construction projects, ventures with financiers as well as regional corporate development organizations will be launched.  

The goal of these ventures is to build an operational model with the help of the companies, financiers, and public operators involved. 


We have conducted a preliminary market investigation about the nature and quantity of demand for ‘Low Energy Buildings’. Based on this investigation an operational model fitting for SMART Building construction projects for emerging markets has been drafted with the help of our experts. This operational model will be tested in negotiations with local governmental officials, research organizations and representatives of companies.

USA: The Better Buildings Initiative & Jobs

The Better Buildings Initiative proposes to make American businesses smarter through a series of new initiatives including newly designed tax incentives for building efficiency, better financing opportunities for commercial retrofits, a “Race to Green” for state and municipal governments that streamline regulations and attract private investment for retrofit projects, a “Better Buildings Challenge” to CEOs and University Presidents, and, finally, new training for commercial building technology workers.

An analysis released in June 2011 by the Political Economy Research Institute (PERI) of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, showed that more than 114,000 new jobs, many of which would come from the hard-hit construction industry, would be created through the Better Buildings Initiative.

Three energy efficiency strategies for buildings include: SMART grid, high efficiency windows and glass, , and lighting. If Home Star legislation is also passed, the firms involved in residential re-insulation and electric heat pump hot water heaters will also benefit.
