What trends will impact your business in 2018?
The switch from the old fashion vertical building block approach to developing mitigation strategies to a more horizontal approach is beginning to take shape. As urban systems become more and more complex so will the need for systems to be completely integrated. Complex systems do not require complex solution but they do require integration to function properly. We’re excited to facilitate the transition from electronic technology reliance and dependency to a more calibrated and “socially engineered” approach to inhabited space design within the built environment. Smart and safe cities of the future demand and depend on us getting it right.
