Debunking the myths

Understand the key elements of a smart building and debunk some of the myths surrounding this new approach to building design.

From the man who wrote the book about Smart Buildings 10 years ago, gain some insights into the key concepts and approaches that you need to be thinking about when you speak about smart buildings.

Session 2 


The disrupted journey to a smarter building

Technology is impacting every sector bringing disruption to processes and behaviors and accelerating at a speed beyond our ability to consume it. Business can no longer be “as usual”.

In this session we will take a step back to look at the journey so far, dive into what needs disrupting and why, peel away the hype from reality, and dive into the fundamentals that makes up the DNA of a smarter building.

Session 3 


Construction and procurement: maintaining the vision – and value

The process of building out an array of technology systems across a variety of traditional building services and newer IOT offerings is complex, costly and, too often, chaotic.

Without a key focus on the original priorities, valued outcomes and ultimate vision, it is easy to deliver solutions that are technically correct, but functionally rejected.

This session focuses on key approaches and processes to make sure you get what you were expecting.
