The concept of sustainability and smart building - using renewable energy sources, adopting building automation technology for self-assessment and to adjust activities to reduce consumption – has to be adapted to meet the challenge of climate and environment.
Such concept will continue to develop and will also incorporate others main pillars: system engineering and static safety aspects on one side, seismic, energy and environmental performance on the other, both mutually supportive to improve the quality of life.
Nowadays “green building”, more than a design choice, is a necessity which will lead to the reorganization of the whole construction chain sector towards a new way of operating, involving all stakeholders: material and component manufacturers, designers and construction companies.
Innovation of processes, materials, technological and construction solutions is thus a mandatory choice for both new and existing buildings, through design solutions and energy retrofitting integrated in a more general context of building sustainability.
