The second panel was moderated by Ruslan Kubrava, General Director, S.A. Ricci Project Management. 

During the second panel “Economic effectiveness of building automation and security systems in office buildings” experts discussed a number of key aspects of automating security systems and “smart offices” in new and existing projects. Industry professionals told about their own developments in the field of automation of business processes and buildings, as well as about the experience of implementing and testing the latest security systems. 

At the end of the event, expert opinions on the calculation of the volume of “smart offices” in the current market were divided. Thus, some of the panelists spoke in favor of the possibility of measuring the segment, focusing on the criteria of existence of “green” standard certification, while the majority of the audience and speakers said that this indicator is not exhaustive and “smart offices” can be implemented outside the context of environmental conformity. Practical aspects of the introduction of new technologies: their cost, features of the calculations in the estimates, as well as the potential payback for customers and the experience of general contractors in the implementation aroused the interest of the audience

In addition, special attention was paid to more advanced security systems that the market can offer today. Also, a particular interest arose the practice of digitizing drawings of objects in the BIM-model to improve the efficiency of operation of real estate. Experts agreed that the development of "smart offices" and their growth as a segment will continue in the future, and it is primarily to develop high-quality software to integrate the latest developments, the payback of which today is amenable to accurate calculations, and indicates the future benefit of customers, aspiring to innovations in the office space.

3d panel: How to increase the attractiveness of Economy and Business class residential buildings: integration of Smart Home systems or integrated security systems –advantage for future sales or a waste of money for investors and developers?3d panel photo (2).jpg

Vitaly Bogachenko, AEB Construction Industry and Building Material Suppliers Committee Chair moderated the third panel. He noted that today the concept of “smart home” in Russia is represented mainly in country houses and premium-class residential complexes. However, technology has significantly fallen in price in recent years and is gradually penetrating the "business" and "comfort" class, giving real estate an additional appeal in the eyes of its buyer. A consumer himself is becoming a more mature and demanding user of “smart” technologies. Therefore, in the near future, certain components of smart-home will become an integral part of residential complexes in all segments.
