Responsive Cities > Smart Cities
You wouldn’t build a physical property without a construction master plan… why not treat your digital assets with the same foresight and care? With urban populations rising, new connected tech promises to make cities more efficient, sustainable and livable. But adapting to a 21st-century world takes more than IoT, big data or arrays of sensors. What if the vision began with people instead of tech? How are we meeting this challenge on projects such as Hudson Yards in NYC, as well as Port Covington in Baltimore, and Link in New York and London? We’ll explore the vision, platform and the people needed to create a responsive city with a soul.

- How regulated building fixtures, ones that need to be produced and installed with a certificate and then regularly maintained and inspected by skilled personnel, can be tracked from production to disposal by the multiple stakeholders involved. Regulated fixtures include smoke detectors, fire-bulkheads, fire extinguishers etc. Stakeholders are the building owner, the manufacturer, the installer, the different maintenance companies and public authorities.
It is not uncommon to hear that Britain has a housing crisis, it is a problem that has been around for many years. The reality, however, is that housing availability is very complex problem to address.
