Building stronger foundations
A foundation is a non-governmental entity that is established as a non-profit corporation or a charitable trust, with a principal purpose of making grants to related 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 locked in to poorly executed projects and propitiatory products, both with associated long-running contracts. As such, the Smart Core Foundation develops approaches to achieving genuinely open building technology interoperability to ensure these expensive assets deliver exceptional user experiences through their entire lifecycle – from concept to demolition.
