Use Of New Technologies In Modern Buildings

 modren buildings
The Indian economy is on the upward path and construction is one of the sectors where the brisk activity was going on just before the economic recession. Besides public infrastructure there is plenty of action on the way where new residential, commercial, industrial and institutional building complexes are under construction.
Traditionally builders have had to deal with many vendors and agencies for the coordination of different facets and technologies and the buildings and infrastructure then may have played just a peripheral part but it is no longer so. The traditional areas of focus have been material, quality, aesthetics, ergonomics and so on. The property developers are now vital to productivity, performance and efficiency of any organization. 
It is not surprising that today buildings are not looked at as brick and mortar edifices but as vital feature in improving the organizational productivity and to improve parameters such as comfort, efficiency, productivity etc. The improvement of these factors through various innovations will continuously lead to trends in the sector with corporate sector doing its best to boost competitiveness, productivity and sustainable functioning. The recent legislation for FDI in the construction sector will improve standards of construction to a greater extent.
Today majority of the office buildings are patterned to make a good work environment through good atmosphere, facilities for recreation such as gyms, sports etc. Nothing is too much for companies to do for maximizing the output from people, their human resources. Apart from giving comfortable and conducive surroundings, buildings are being made according to ‘resource efficiency’ for main parameters such as power and water consumption not only from a commercial point of view but also from the point of view of conserving the resources and the environment. Half of the energy used in a building is dedicated to create artificial indoor climate for cooling, ventilation and lighting. There is a continual focus on making ‘per person consumption of power’ as little as possible through technology and best practices. The focus is on choice of equipment, like chillers, motors, drives etc, using atmospheric conditions wherever possible, engaging energy and space efficient products, putting in sensor base ‘light’ management, engaging sophisticated Building Management Systems (BMS) to supervise key parameters like temperature and light. It needs a reliable power supply, proper lighting, comfort cooling, dust free area and security which will contribute towards making a conductive environment for work.
Things like ambience, comfort and experience are utilized to draw clients by using air conditioning, lighting, music, design and layout and some high-tech features. There is an integration of security, safety and fire protection to give detailed and incorporated building management systems.
Another sector in which the part played by building systems is always growing is leisure, recreation and entertainment. Shops have evolved into malls, multiplexes have sprung up from theatres and sports complexes and fitness centres are springing up in metros all over the land.
In many cases the changing part played by buildings can be seen. For example, in IT and Biotech Parks, R&D centres, call centres, etc these developments  have come up very fast. Such service driven businesses in which the productivity of the organization is closely connected with the productivity of the people and their habitation are coming up. 
The life span of a building begins from the stage of design, goes on to construction, operation, upkeep, renovation and in the end either leads to reuse or pulling down. People rarely realize that ‘initial building costs’ only make up around two per cent of the full life cycle expense of a property. The operations and maintenance make up another six per cent of the cost of a building’s life cycle and the remaining 92 per cent is attributable to costs associated with people.
There are greater demands in housing and residential complexes in design, aesthetic, comfort, lighting, energy efficiency and security. Inventive engineering and design, more efficient products, added solutions for electrics, heat and light, communications, etc for increasingly advanced management and control systems for buildings are required. The architecture also counts for the performance and efficiency such as heat load reduction, glazing, and space saving design and natural ventilation and lighting.
An integrated approach to provide a ‘single window’ offering platform for adoption and maintenance of electrical installations, fire protection, building automation and ,operation, maintenance and asset management services would be of great help to consumers.
