Office Building--Design and Construction
Technological advances have initiated complexity in buildings and may also provide the means to manage it. Research in advanced technology development suggests new directions for development and application of advanced technologies to buildings.
The purpose of this research is to examine and develop an understanding of building related computer uses. This study is done by literature search and field survey. Through literature search the theoretical background is established. Through field survey practical guidelines are suggested.
Studies of social and physical organizational systems and building systems are surveyed, then computers and advanced technologies are introduced. This is to find out practical applications and examples. The research then focuses on a detailed example of relationship between buildings and advanced technologies. This is based on interview and questionnaire information from four different companies.
The work concludes with guidelines on how buildings and advanced technologies can and should relate to each other.
