Integrating building science with data science at AUROS Group
The tools and technology today enable building owners to reach very low energy and healthy building performance without spending a premium in construction costs. Fuel poverty, inequitable indoor air quality, pandemics, and poor outdoor air quality demand that we change the way we look at buildings. Evidence-based building performance is rapidly becoming table stakes in the discussion of sustainability or sustainable development. Experienced building owners have figured out that aligning the financial, social, and environmental goals of new and existing buildings is best achieved by integrating building science and data science. The fundamental building blocks include building simulation, open integrated technologies, real-time database & historian and a simple dashboard. When considered early in design, there should be no premium in the cost of construction to build smart and high performing buildings.
