Abstract: In the era of ever advancing technology, buildings and the workplace are evolving. It is no longer sufficient for buildings to be just green. Though the primary reasons for the emergence of smart buildings are mostly similar, the key distinction is that there is high emphasis placed on extensive integration of the use of ICT with a centralized system to increase operational efficiencies to achieve sustainability and improve the quality of life. In smart buildings, systems no longer operate in silos. Through leveraging the use of technology, systems can operate as an integrated system that is governed by a centralized system. One important technological trend is the Internet of Things (IoT). It allows physical objects or devices that are equipped with hardware, software or sensors to be networked to the Internet. Equipped with sensors and actuators throughout the building, massive amounts of data can be collected to optimize building performance. These data also serve to support interoperability between systems, adapt to changes in the environment which empowers building operators and occupants with visible and actionable information. This study serves to examine the various definitions of smart building and the drivers behind this trend which helps to give an insight on how smart buildings impact Facilities Management (FM) today. Data will be gathered through responds obtained from facility managers of commercial buildings in Singapore through questionnaires. The research seeks to identify the gap between smart building system interface in commercial buildings and how it can be improved to improve the user-friendliness of the system.
