‘Intelligent Structural Panel’ Will Make Smart Building Envelopes

The Intelligent Structural Panel (ISP), currently in development at the WZMH Innovation Lab, is poised to re-shape the industry by making “smart” building envelopes. The ISP can be used in place of traditional structural elements such as reinforced concrete and steel decking. The prefabricated steel plate sandwich panel, contains an “intelligent layer” with plug-in ports for everything from HVAC and lighting to security systems and elevators which respond via sensors to changes in movement, touch, sound, sunlight, temperature and even occupant flow.
