Building stronger foundations
A foundation is a non-governmental entity that is established as a nonprofit corporation or a charitable trust, with a principal purpose of making grants to unrelated organisations, institutions, or individuals for scientific, educational, cultural, religious, or other charitable purposes.
Similarly, building foundations provide support for structures, transferring their load to layers of soil or rock that have sufficient bearing capacity and suitable settlement characteristics to support them.
We see huge risks for building owners and operators in being locked in to propitiatory products. As such, the Smart Core Foundation seeks to support building technology interoperability to ensure real-time control remains within a building’s walls and data lives with these expensive assets through their entire lifecycle – from concept to demolition.
