Our Smart Building Technology story

The benefits of building ‘smart’ in delivering buildings and infrastructure has become a focal point for the industry. Not only do advances in building technology enhance construction quality and delivery times, it has the potential to drastically minimise costs. This is reflected in our dedicated building and technology sector, which in 2017 was 57% larger than previous years. From the latest in BIM technology to access control and smart building products – this is sector continues to drive innovation from the show floor out.
