MetadataShow full item record
This paper reports the findings on the identification of market requirements of smart buildings technologies for high rise office buildings in Saudi Arabia including: levels of importance of smart building technologies for office buildings, current practices of utilizing hi-tech smart building technologies in office buildings, required additional features of smart building technologies for office buildings, challenges for integrating smart building technologies for office buildings, major benefits of hi-tech smart buildings technologies for office buildings, and priorities of smart building technologies based on current usage. The paper also reports on key parameters of the comparison of smart office building technologies between Saudi Arabia and developed countries which are based on the survey results for the former and literature review for the latter. This comparison provides in a nutshell a conclusion of the complete survey analysis conducted in this research and at the same time provides an indication on the utilization level of smart office buildings in Saudi Arabia compared to the current practices in developed countries.
