Ingenuity for life creates perfect places.
Creating perfect places
Why shouldn’t all our lives be lived in perfect places?
With people spending about 90 percent of their 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.

Building technology from Siemens makes Pine Grove Middle School in East Syracuse, New York, a perfect place to create the new learning environment that new minds need. Watch the story here.
When the East Syracuse-Minoa school district began an energy performance contract with Siemens they expected savings on their utilities – what they got was a corporate partner in the development of their 1960s factory-era school into a model for 21st century innovative learning.
Creating perfect places: but how?
Digitalisation allows buildings to communicate within the cloud. Billions of intelligent devices and machines generate massive amounts of data every day, every hour, every second. Enhanced communication with buildings is the key to creating perfect places.
Being a leader in the digital transformation means knowing how to create real value from this data with one overall goal: To improve our customers' buildings performance constantly.
Only when you can understand what buildings are saying is it possible to turn places into perfect places.

The building is the beer
A perfect place is a place that’s perfect for a purpose
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.
