What, exactly, makes a building smart? Turns, out, there is no simple answer, no one-size-fits-all solution. That’s why JE Dunn’s Smart Building Solutions (SBS) group offers a project approach as unique as each building itself. Starting with a diagnosis of current conditions to determine the best technology to ultimately integrating building systems from the outset, our SBS experts have a straightforward 5-step process to help your building work smarter—not harder.
