What do you do now and what are you planning for the future? I design joined-up building services for intelligent buildings. The future will see even more connected devices from companies outside of the traditional controls industry. The spread of consumer IoT devices – and how easily they can be configured – is forcing everyone in construction to up their game. Why can’t we let a building occupant modify their work environment as easily as they can at home? It’s all about the tenant experience.
How do you unwind from a busy day? Watch New York go about its business from a bench in Central Park.
Favorite book or author: John Le Carré
