Join us as Phil Kanfer and John Meko of WiredScore lead an informative discussion on SmartScore technology. With growing awareness in the commercial real estate industry that offices are not immune to the changing world around them and will need to evolve to remain relevant, the ‘smart building’ concept emerged.
Smart buildings are inspirational, sustainable, cost-efficient, and future-proof spaces that put the users at the center. SmartScore identifies the best in class smart buildings that deliver an exceptional user experience, drive cost efficiency, meet high sustainability standards, and are fully future-proof.
