Be Ready for the Evolution of Smart Technology

Watch sessions from the Smart Buildings and IoT virtual summit on-demand

Smart buildings continue to create new opportunities to collect and analyze essential facility data, providing necessary information to optimize building operations.

Connected systems and sensors are now the baseline for most buildings, but innovations continue to offer greater efficiencies, lower costs and optimized staffing and labor options.

fnPrime members can watch sessions from the "Smart Buildings and IoT" virtual summit on-demand for free. This event focused on what facility managers need to do today and tomorrow to be ready for the next wave in smart building technology.

Session 1: Understanding IoT Concepts and Applications

Smart buildings require sensors and IoT devices. Given the multitude of technology options and numerous providers, evaluating the use of sensors can be daunting. Session attendees will learn the concepts of IoT and gain an understanding of the broad range of sensor technologies. Peter Costanzo, Director, ROI Consulting Group, will discuss practical use cases, examples and case studies of smart technology.

Session 2: Smart Building Rating Programs Complementing the ESG and Decarbonization Objectives

Capturing reliable and consistent data for ESG reporting and certification platforms measuring building energy consumption, sustainability, health and wellness, and net zero performance is critical. Assessment and certification programs provide the opportunity to use this data to create the interoperability of these systems to minimize energy and operating costs for owners while enhancing the comfort and productivity of operators and occupants. This session from David Katz, President, Sustainable Resources Management Inc., will demonstrate how building owners and facility managers can collect and benchmark data with smart building automation features in existing buildings and how building owners can plan to meet reporting requirements for new construction projects.

Session 3: Intelligent Building Technologies — Smart Jobsites to Smart Operations and Maintenance

Throughout every building’s lifecycle, whether existing or new, it continuously generates enormous amounts of valuable data that usually goes unnoticed. Comprehensive building data is the golden thread that links all lifecycle phases together and it provides an accurate representation of a physical asset’s performance at any point in time from commissioning to demolition. Unfortunately, most owners and operators lack the resources and tools to harvest and harness all building data…until now.

Don Conover, Director of Gilbane Building Company’s Facilities Management Services Division and Eric Hall, IBT Project Executive for Gilbane FMS, will discuss how recent technology advancements deliver not just a smart building, but a truly intelligent building, born with the ability to sense diagnose and treat operational performance issues in real-time.
