RESIMERCIAL
Smart Buildings
smart building companies like Carr and integrators like Nard's
are using these types of systems to ensure they don't constantly
run into problems. A late 2020 report from Precedence
Research found that the smart building market is on pace to
hit a market size of $127 billion by 2027.
Added Amenities, Enhanced Monitoring
Beyond the ability to build bespoke offices, the smart building
approach that Carr and integrators like Nard's are developing
also works as the perfect proving ground for some relatively
novel technologies that are gaining momentum in both residential
and commercial spaces.
Recently, Carr and its team of integrators have been keeping
track of customer interest in wellness and air quality technology
as businesses and residences look to improve their
systems due to continued COVID-19 concerns nationwide.
While many modern high-rises offer air filtration systems on a
building-wide scale, the integration teams working with Carr
set their sights a little higher.
" I think that there's going to be a lot of standards when it
comes to wellness and health [technology] because people are
much more educated right now and they're going to require
visibility, " says Zachar. " Because for us wellness and hospitality
are huge. We're talking about air quality, particulate counters,
lighting, circadian lighting, acoustics and [asking] how does all
that fall into the wellness and the hospitality piece of it, and
gathering all that information into our analytics platform. "
Carr also tries to consistently use new and emerging technology
in its buildings, including things like UV Germicidal Irradiance
(UVGI) detectors in rooms, circadian lighting, and advanced
filtration technology to keep its buildings safe and clean.
The company can do some pretty futuristic stuff with its
automation technology too, including projecting a report card
of the building's wellness stats (IAQ, number of guests, etc.) in
the lobby. Carr can even show residents and workers whether
the gym or an office space is available via the Carr Properties
app, meaning people don't even have to leave their office or
residence to learn whether an area is safe and ready for a visit.
Thanks to its smart buildings' AV and control systems
being automated, all of this advanced tech doesn't require a
building's property manager to be an automation wizard. After
some initial training on the URC Total Control platform the
buildings run on, managers are able to help customers with
simple issues due to the user-friendly nature of the panels and
tech included in both common and private spaces.
Smart buildings aren't all serious business, either. Up-andcoming,
trendy tech companies are looking to differentiate
themselves from other tech start-ups, and these businesses
are beginning to seek out entertainment spaces to use as a
selling point for prospective employees. A few Carr properties
have adapted to furnish these requests, and now businesses in
those buildings have access to rooms with DJ decks, podcasting
booths, and even karaoke rooms! CE Pro

" When you go
from one Carr
property to another
you're using
the same kinds
of technology,
the same kinds of
buttons, the same
kinds of icons, so
that everything
is a smooth flow
throughout their
whole portfolio. "
