IS-2005-33: On the Quantitative Assessment of Intelligent Buildings
This paper, by Albert T.P. So, and K.C. Wong, recommends a new approach to define intelligent buildings. It calls for a two-level strategy to define intelligent buildings. There are nine Quality Environment Modules (QEMs) and underneath each one, there are a number of elements. In addition, there are features or facilities to consider and these can be classified as functional requirements, functional space, and technology. Although the paper focuses on Asian definition, it suggests that the approach can be applied around the world.
