ON10 – People-centric Office Design in a Smart Engineering Way

In recent years, due to the devastating impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the building industry has concentrated on measuring and monitoring the features conditions of built environment, especially in workplace, that impact occupants’ health and wellbeing, i.e. air quality, water, light, comfort, etc. This leads to a surge in application of emerging Internet of Things (IoT) technology in office building design. Smart office denotes a style of modern office design, a new “smart” concept to cater for the new age to match today’s new normal lifestyle, that focuses on applying IoT to help manage the work environment, control energy usage and bring innovation and modern functions to promote effective business operation. With the help of Artificial Intelligence and Big Data analytics technology, massive condition data can be transferred via wireless network automatically without human involvement and retrieved for integrated analysis and evaluation, facilitating condition diagnosis and instant responsive adjustments in engineering systems setting and thus enhancing building wellness performance. The team will present innovative ideas in future government office design driven with IoT, with an aim to provide dynamic, people-centric engineering services for the occupants, enhancing community well-being with heart and care.
