White Paper Summary

Pressures in today’s construction industry include project delivery, lifecycle performance and sustainability, alongside the need to minimise costs. Motivated by long-term economic and ecological sustainability, increasing numbers of new “green” and “smart” buildings are being built. The novel solutions being developed for these buildings, like connected Internet of Things (IoT) sensors and wireless technologies, recycled or new and untested building materials, address many problems. But they also introduce new risks such as exposure to cyber attacks and inherent product defects or failure to meet performance requirements.
