Intelligent Building Dictionary: terminology for smart, integrated, green building design, construction, and management
by Building Intelligence Group

"This is a wonderful addition to our industry knowledge-base and library of reference documents that will help us in our efforts to educate and influence our customers and eco-system partners.  I believe it will help everyone better understand the importance and relevance of intelligent buildings." --Dave Clute, Connected Real Estate Practice Lead, Cisco Systems

Intelligent Buildings require cooperation between traditional building trades; building automation; Green Building specialists; experts in new technologies like lighting control, digital signage, and intelligent bathrooms; and Information Technology specialists to integrate building systems and enterprise information systems.

This convergence of disciplines has resulted in an explosion of specialized terms, acronyms, and jargon. The experts at the Building Intelligence Group created this dictionary to help novices and experts cut through the confusion and understand the vocabulary of this fast growing field.

This dictionary features:

  • Concise definitions for more than 2,500 terms, cross referenced for fast easy access.
  • Links to sources of additional information.
  • Summary tables and diagrams.

Building Intelligence Group is a specialized consultancy working with building owners and managers, systems integrators, and suppliers on multiple aspects of intelligent building projects and education.
