Smart Building Insight Newsletter Signup

Letter from the Editor

Hello to all! We hope you are doing well and staying healthy as the seasons change and the days get shorter (for our readers in the Northern Hemisphere, at least).

We're now on a monthly cadence, and there is much to report since our last issue in early October. So, here is the wrap up of all things smart buildings. In addition to this digest, Aamidor Consulting remains hard at work on a range of interesting projects and continues to have great conversations with industry leaders and entrepreneurs. 

 If you are trying to get through the newsletter quickly, here are a few high level takeaways:

  1. More fundraising activity, with Augury, Passive Logic, Budderfly, and Redaptive all raising more capital. A few new proptech funds, too. (Plus two SPACs.)
  2. A lot of technologies being launched around health/wellness, or just better communication with tenants - but there still are not that many people coming back to the office (especially in the US, and also UK it seems). We have a roundup of all this news below.
  3. In the 'Covid-19 related' section, a new report on the true cost of making a building Covid-safe, and a paper from Taylor Engineering about indoor air quality. 
  4. Sustainability continues to be high priority for big banks, with a few more committing capital to support a greening of the economy.
  5. Like last month, the newsletter is organized around a few key trends, especially in the last section on 'Articles, Reports and News": returning to the office, Covid, and the continued focus on sustainability, along with our typical coverage of product launches.  

We didn't publish any new articles over the past few weeks, but Joe Aamidor did speak on a couple of webinars: a panel at the CRE/Tech Sustainability Conference, a presentation on healthy building technology last week at Realcomm, a discussion with Joanna Frank of the Center for Active Design and expert on fitwel, and, as shown below, a discussion about smart buildings sponsored by the Alliance to Save Energy. And there are some good authored articles to highlight, thought nothing recent: a few months ago, we wrote this article on returning to the office and the impact on smart building tech. And, never worry about reaching out to have a chat or talk about a potential project - busy or not, we'd be happy to talk!
