Facilities Management's Needs for Technology Advancements
Gordon Mitchell, Chief Information Officer
Key Facilities Management
The past year has shone a spotlight on how technology can be used to optimize workflows and connect teams. Technology can also be used in your building to optimize and connect systems, frameworks and data. This session will discuss what should be in your Digital FM Toolkit and how these systems and strategies can assist your organization. But technology can be overwhelming for your team, so we will also discuss how this technology transformation should take place from the inside of your organization out. Finally, we review the in-development ISO standard on technology in facility management for better understanding of implantation and practicality from the ISO standard position.
The New Corporate Health Responsibility, and the Technology that will Enable Transformation
Grant Morgan, CEO
According to renowned Harvard researchers, by the time you reach eighty, you will have spent 72 years of your life indoors. R-Zero recently partnered with The Harris Poll to survey office workers across the U.S. We discovered that employees now possess a powerful new awareness of the impact that these spaces where they spend their time, namely their office environments, have on their overall health. After over a year of living with the pandemic, employees expect significant changes in the workplace — to not only protect them from COVID-19, but all common illnesses. The role of the facility manager has been elevated as they must find ways to establish this higher standard for health and safety without expanding budgets, and also articulate the changes they're making to keep people safe.
The New Corporate Health Responsibility session will:
Dive into the findings of this survey and highlight how this critical workplace transformation is paving the way for innovation and technology that better addresses how organizations safeguard human health
Highlight specific technology, including software, automation, and sensors, that can give facility managers leverage and help them monitor the key risk factors throughout their facility in real-time
Provide actionable insights for facility managers to improve the health and safety of indoor work environments long-term
Implementing a BIM-FM Strategy
Jacob D'Albora, FMP, LEED AP
Associate Vice President, BIM-FM Managing Director
McVeigh & Mangum Engineering, Inc.
Over the last 15 years the AEC industry has adopted modern technology, advancing many of the ways that buildings are designed and constructed. Building Information Modeling (BIM) is continually developing the everyday process for designers and builders. But where do the owners stand? How do we extract the data from these workflows to execute a more efficient facility and building operation? This presentation will walk through the reasons why standardizing this information could streamline facility operations, allowing the data to resolve issues and develop the future projects. With the correct standards in place, owners can utilize the information handed to them.

Maximizing Your CMMS and Other Technology Systems
John Rimer, CFM
The facility management industry has grown by leaps and bounds the past few decades; the most significant being the advance of technology in the built environment. One's inner geek cannot help but get excited when considering the capabilities available at our fingertips in today's facilities. Expand that purview to include the latest in web-based management systems, building automation, wireless monitoring, and 3-D modeling, and this explosion is all the more exhilarating. However, that mood is quickly dashed with the realization that while such power and efficiency lie at our doorstep, most facility organizations have yet to truly embrace or leverage them. The FM struggles that have existed for decades, encumber us still today; it is as though we are stuck in a time warp, while technology has blazed light years ahead. As one that is very passionate about this industry and the great people that work in it, I charge that it is incumbent upon us to grab hold of these tools and wield them to deliver value to our organizations, mature our respective facility programs, and grow the profession. In this session, we will highlight some of these technological advances and how they could be put to work for the betterment of our FM programs.
