Listen to What Your Building Infrastructure Tells You
By Dale Klein
As a history buff, I was thrilled to tour France this summer on vacation. As we toured the chateaus, monuments and buildings that have stood as witnesses to thousands of years of history, I couldn't help but wonder what these buildings could tell me if they could talk.
The same questions apply when I walk into buildings today. For today's buildings, the question has to do more with what can the building's infrastructure share about its safety and security, energy sustainability and occupancy usage.
