What Does Generation Z Want in its Buildings?

commercial buildings Energy ManageFacilities Management Journal reports that BSRIA has released a white paper detailing what Generation Z, which are people born in the mid-1990s onward, wants in the buildings that it uses. The paper, “Products and Systems for Generation Z in Reduced Carbon Buildings,” suggests that there is a desire for systems that detect abnormalities immediately and that providers will be chosen more on “advice and transparency” basis than on the cost of products and services.

Products will need to be simple, flexible and easily managed. Generation Z wants carbon emissions targets to be met during the next ten years. Renting and leasing will be more common than buying; this approach – not owning, but using – will extend to energy issues. Thus, services will be more common than end user-owned products. Recycling will be a major goal.

A story at Sprout details the characteristics of Generation Z folks. Not surprisingly, global warming and other environmental issues are of concern to people of this age group.
