Creating perfect places
Australia is a sunburnt country, a land of droughts and flooding rains. New Zealand is the land of the long white cloud. Both countries share an affinity with nature, nevertheless we spend around 90 percent of our lives indoors - there is no place where we spend more time in our life. So buildings are far more than just four walls. They are the places where we learn the most important lessons in life, where we encounter the personalities that inspire us, where the best of our ideas are born. Buildings are the places where we spend time with the people we love. And at the end of it all: They are our homes – and there is no place in the world that feels so special to us.
We all begin our lives in a perfect place: In our mother´s tummy. A place where it is never too cold, never too warm, never too loud, never too quiet; a place where we can always feel safe and secure.
Our life starts in the perfect place - long before we can even think. So why shouldn’t all our lives be lived in perfect places? A perfect place – perfectly designed for its purpose. A place to learn, a place to develop, a place to grow, a place to succeed.
It takes Ingenuity for life to create these perfect places – to give people a place to achieve their most ambitious goals, to give people a place where they can always feel safe and secure, to give them a place where they can live the life they want.
As trusted advisor and reliable partner, as a system integrator, service provider and a product vendor, Building Technologies Division from Siemens offers energy-efficient, safe and secure buildings and infrastructure. With our people, our global footprint, our decades of experience and our technical expertise, it's our passion helping you to create the perfect place – your perfect place.
Digitalization means buildings talk. All around the world, buildings are doing something they’ve never done before. They are talking! Digitalization gives them a voice. Buildings tell us how they feel, if they are under stress, what they are missing. We understand what they are saying! And with the information they give us, we create perfect places.
Building performance & sustainability
Energy costs ran high across the schools and preschools of Sosnowiec, due to classroom temperatures that were too high and hard to control. This also had a negative impact on students’ performance. For the authorities of Sosnowiec, it was clear that a complete refurbishment of the schools' system was essential:
87 schools had to be technically modernized in only 10 months.
We create results: Cost savings of 31 percent. Lighting power usage cut by 21 percent. CO2 cut by 5,220 metric tons every year. Great results. But perhaps the best results were that with the help of Siemens, the joy of learning came back. Students are now more comfortable, more focused; their school performance is better, and grades are higher.
The EU has recognized this tremendous environmental and social impact, honoring Siemens and the city of Sosnowiec for outstanding efforts and achievements in the field of energy services in Europe.
The story of Sosnowiec shows how important the perfect place is for our personal development. But energy efficiency and performance optimization for buildings are not only local challenges. If we want to succeed against climate change, sustainable buildings are a major part of the global response.

Buildings account for 41 percent of energy consumption worldwide, and produce a third of greenhouse gas emissions. As public opinion calls for more environmental transparency and accountability from public and commercial organizations, improving your buildings' efficiency is a necessary move. But it is also a smart one: With energy accounting for up to 30 percent of a building's lifecycle cost, performance optimization is a critical step in not just meeting sustainability expectations and emissions reduction targets - but a key lever to improve financial, regulatory and reputational standing.
