The buildings of the future are set to be considerably different from present and past. Key participants in this change will be the Building Services and Sustainability Engineer. We have in recent years seen the pivotal role engineers play in designing buildings to optimise passively its environmental performance and carbon footprint. 

The use of Building Information Modelling (BIM) will allow quicker and more efficient installation of services. Additionally with a strong emphasis on Health and Wellbeing, engineers and their systems will be delivering improved monitoring and better air quality. With the arrival of the Internet of Things there will be significant additional requirement for data transfer capability within buildings. Traditional Wi-Fi is unlikely to be able to support this and it is likely that we see use of light waves as a data transfer medium. This technology is set to form a crucial part of future building infrastructure. In addition to improved air-quality it will also assist with space planning, security, wayfinding and environmental control. We at NLCE continue to track and deliver latest trends and innovations within our projects.
