“Intelligent Building Consultants are often tasked to find the most relevant pieces of building technology that will effectively serve the client’s intended use cases and also allows for adaptation and expansion through future technology efforts. Lighting has transitioned from an energy efficiency position to an actionable and integrated source of data that now allows building owners to capture more granular and relevant information about their building and occupant performance.
