Hurley Palmer Flatt, the UK engineering consultancy, has created a Smart Building Division, with the introduction of an eight-stage framework that will support landlords, tenants and occupiers in planning appropriate Smart Building Strategies.

The potential impact of smart-buildings is huge and buildings are now digital assets with the ability to support everyday lives, improving wellbeing.

Paul Roche, Executive Director of Hurley Palmer Flatt says: “A Smart future represents a tectonic shift for our sector and the rewards for organisations to capitalise on this through increased connectivity are endless. We understand that at times it can seem a little foreboding however the opportunity far outweighs the risk and we seek to help our clients navigate their way through to achieve the best results for their business.”
