The smart living lab project is a pioneering, inter-disciplinary and inter-institutional platform that combines several fields of research related to construction technologies. It aims to be a center of national scope, recognized on an international level and involving a variety of players and institutions. One of the smart living lab’s projects is the design and construction of its own building, which will be at the cutting edge of research and best practice on sustainability. Before starting the construction of the smart living building, a preliminary research called smart living building (SLB) research program has been set up, of which this report is the executive summary. Its objective is to sum up the research findings discovered in this frame, and to outline the way they can be used as fundamental requirements into the future operational design brief.
