Brett Smyth, General Manager EMEA of IDEAL Industries, discusses the role of smart building technology in creating more sustainable homes and more productive work environments.
2020 was a year like no other. The COVID-19 crisis prompted people all over the world to work and live differently in an attempt to control infection rates and remain healthy and productive despite the virus.

However, it’s clear that human contact and face-to-face interactions with colleagues and customers are also important, so it seems likely that many will opt for a hybrid of home and office working.
GS Technologies Ltd (LON:GST), through its subsidiary, EMS Wiring Systems Pte. Ltd, provides services in the “Smart Building” sector. Smart Building is a diverse term that refers to the technological capabilities of buildings and other work place facilities.
