GENERAL SESSION: REcalibrate | Using Innovation to Turn Challenges into Opportunities

This year's theme, REcalibrate | Using Innovation to Turn Challenges into Opportunities, focuses on how everyone in an organization needs to fully understand how this next chapter of the digital revolution will affect their role as well as the organization as a whole. It is time to REcalibrate, identify the challenges, embrace innovative ideas and discover new opportunities in the way we design, build, lease, operate, transact and use Commercial and Corporate Real Estate.

INCLUDED SESSIONS ARE:

Real Estate Innovation @ Scale
Date: 6/13/2019    Time: 8:30 am - 10:30 am    Location: Schermerhorn Symphony Center
The Commercial and Corporate Real Estate industry is experiencing one of the biggest periods of change in history. Much of this disruption is coming from the impacts that technology, automation and innovation are having on our business. Process automation, smart buildings and new ways of using space are all changing the way we design, build, lease, operate, transact and use buildings.

It is relatively easy to experiment with a new technology in a single building where the risks and exposure are low, but much more complicated to attempt to innovate at scale. Commercial and Corporate Real Estate represent complex ecosystems. Blueprints, leases, paying rent, parking, security access, maintenance requests and performance reports all contain an inordinate amount of data and process automation. Business requirements for standardization, cybersecurity protocols and privacy issues create additional hurdles to overcome.

On this General Session segment, Zorba Manolopoulos, Global Program Manager, Smart Campuses, Facebook Kevin Danehy, Global Head of Corporate Development, Brookfield Kenneth Finnegan, CIO, Managing Director of Technology, Hudson Yards-Related; and Jared Summers, Digital Foundation Manager, ExxonMobil will discuss Real Estate Innovation @ Scale.

These executives represent some of the most notable and recognizable companies in the world and they are all taking a very aggressive approach to transforming how they manage and use every aspect of their Real Estate operations. This panel of extraordinary professionals will present a good mix of perspectives from both the tenant and landlord side of the relationship, as well as describe their roles in the digital transformation process. As technology reaches through the center of the buildings, into tenant suites and back to the owner’s operating team, establishing future-proof strategies for Real Estate will continue to be challenging.




Facebook, which has changed the way we communicate and socialize digitally with over one billion users globally, is applying their digital prowess to their own corporate campus.











Brookfield, one of the largest Commercial Real Estate owners and operators in the world, is set to use their size to create new benchmarks and accelerate innovation in our industry.









Hudson Yards, which was constructed on 28 acres over an existing rail yard in New York City, is the nation’s largest private development and has set new standards for Innovation @ Scale.










ExxonMobil, one of the largest oil companies in the world with buildings around the globe, is applying an aggressive innovation strategy to its new Spring, TX, HQ and portfolio at large.




Meeting the challenge for changing the Real Estate industry through technology, automation and innovation takes all types of participants - small, medium and large - to start the discussion and then show the way. As the market makers step in and take the discussion to the next level, we see Real Estate Innovation @ Scale bring accelerated industry acceptance and true transformation. This exceptional panel with their various roles and perspectives will set the stage for two days of fast paced, cutting-edge, timely discussions and debates on how we all need to REcalibrate our thinking about the relationship between Technology and Real Estate.

FACT OR FICTION – Making Sense of THE RETech, PropTech and CRETech Landscape
Date: 6/13/2019    Location: Schermerhorn Symphony Center
Billions of dollars, numerous capital sources, thousands of companies, dozens of reports, conferences everywhere, some fact, some fiction and a fair amount of confusion define the times. With multiple names to choose from, the RETech / PropTech / CRETech industry, has been in existence for over 40 years. Companies such as Siemens and Honeywell on the smart building side and Yardi and MRI on the Real Estate information management side set the foundation long ago. Since 2009 a tremendous amount of capital has been raised and invested in this newest iteration of PropTech. Angels, VCs, Accelerators, RE Tech Firms and RE Companies are all participating. With all of this increased activity comes a great deal of confusion. This thoughtful and thorough presentation will uncover the fact and fiction of PropTech, and offer advice for navigating the complexity.

The Journey Begins – Creating a Comprehensive SMART BUILDING STRATEGY
Date: 6/13/2019    Time: 11:45 am - 12:45 pm    Location: Room 209B
There are numerous opinions on the definition of a smart, connected, energy-efficient, digitally engaging, intelligent building. There are some common categories in which most people group smart building attributes: energy/sustainability, operational efficiency, space utilization, occupant experience, and wellness. Due to traditional organizational structures, these five components are often dealt with separately. A comprehensive smart building strategy must be wide and deep and take into consideration all five groups at the same time, as well as roll-up into a comprehensive portfolio view. This session will bring together those organizations who have spent years developing their smart building strategies, sharing their challenges and successes.

'Smart' Gets Complicated – A Conversation Between LANDLORDS and TENANTS
Date: 6/13/2019    Time: 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm    Location: Room 209A
Developing a smart building or campus for a single tenant is quite different than working in a multi-tenant environment. Historically, the landlord had responsibility for the common areas and their responsibility stopped at the tenant’s front door. As buildings have become more technologically complex the lines have begun to blur. Data sharing, building network accessibility, wireless infrastructure, access control strategies and integration of different occupant experience applications are just some of the instances where technology is forcing a rethink of the relationship between tenant and landlord. Thought leaders from both sides of the table will lead this discussion on their changing roles and responsibilities.

Transforming Commercial Environments – Key Insights from the First Annual STATE of the SMART BUILDINGS MARKET STUDY
Date: 6/13/2019    Time: 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm    Location: Room 209A
Smart building technologies have been available to building owners and managers for over a decade. In that time, we have seen innovative showcase projects demonstrate the powerful benefits of advanced automation and control, connectivity, and analytics. However, most buildings have still not adopted a smart building approach that leads to improved safety, productivity and space utilization. This spring, Navigant Research partnered with Intelligent Buildings, Anixter and UL to launch the inaugural “State of the Smart Buildings Market” study. Leaders across the real estate market were interviewed; the study fielded an extensive survey of decision-makers across North America. Join this instructive session to hear the research highlights and key insights impacting building readiness and the near-term outlook for smart commercial spaces.

Building a SMART BUILDING TEAM – Navigating in a Skills Shortage Environment
Date: 6/14/2019    Time: 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm    Location: Room 207B
If an organization is serious about developing or retrofitting a building to exemplify next generation thinking, it truly needs to be a group effort. If every aspect of the building is going to be rethought as it relates to new and emerging technologies, a variety of intellectual capabilities will be required. Once leadership, vision and budgets are established, the work of building a team begins. Internal personnel as well as a multitude of external resources must be assembled to effectively deliver the next generation building. To add to the complexity, this must be done in an environment where technology is changing daily and the required skills are in short supply and high demand. Those with real-world experience in this process will share their perspective and insights.

An Important Part of the Smart Building Strategy Process – A Modern Approach to the REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL (RFP)
Date: 6/14/2019    Time: 3:15 pm - 4:15 pm    Location: Room 207B
The process of developing buildings has been constantly redefined over the last 50-75 years. Each new project brings new opportunity to rethink the many components that make up a building. However, the level of innovation actually accomplished with each iteration is up for debate. One of the key components is the RFP Process. It is here that ideas are defined and various providers have the opportunity to respond with their capabilities. In many cases, due to time constraints and the fact that building technologies historically did not change fast, many continue to use outdated techniques. This session will focus on historical methodologies in the RFP process compared to new, more digital and innovative approaches.

Understanding the Options – Unpacking the BUILDING OPERATING SYSTEM (Panel & Vendor Showcase)
Date: 6/13/2019    Time: 3:30 pm - 4:45 pm    Location: Room 209B
We’re continually connecting more devices in buildings for the purpose of data collection and control. As the complexity of smart buildings increases, so does the need to have an organized, comprehensive, standardized way of managing all these different systems. Over time, the debate has even questioned the need for a Building Operating System. While there are data integration platforms, dashboards, analytics programs and other applications associated with smart buildings, the question remains: “What are the best options when it comes to meeting the requirements of what one would consider a holistic building operating system?” In Part One of this session, industry thought leaders will share their insights on the topic and in Part Two, we’ll follow with a product showcase of the leading solutions.

Server, Controller, Edge or Cloud – Developing a Smart Building INFRASTRUCTURE Strategy
Date: 6/13/2019    Time: 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm    Location: Room 209B
In addition to the Base Building Network, which serves as the fundamental communications highway for a smart building, there are a number of additional systems to evaluate when developing a smart building infrastructure strategy. Multiple generations of technologies such as server, controller, edge and cloud options, offered by a variety of different solution providers makes the game of piecing together a strategy a challenge. Each has its own hardware, software and data approach which must be brought together to create a unified system. While the perfect solution may not yet be available, there are current best practices. For those responsible for developing a smart building strategy, this is a must attend session.

BUILDING NETWORKS/LANs and WANs – The Foundation for Smart Buildings
Date: 6/14/2019    Time: 10:45 am - 11:45 am    Location: Room 209B
The idea of a base building network to provide digital amenities to tenants and visitors, as well as a connection point for a multitude of disparate building systems has come of age. For the most progressive owners and operators, a building network is no longer a luxury, but a necessity. Defining the building network architecture is one of the most important decisions to be made. Fiber, copper, wireless, switches, routers, controllers, firewalls and device connectivity are just some of the technical issues which must be considered. The decisions get more complex as you add more buildings to the WAN and begin to design a connected portfolio or campus. The industries’ most experienced professionals will share their perspective on this important topic.

The Intersection of Two Worlds – The Continuing Convergence of IT and OT
Date: 6/14/2019    Time: 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm    Location: Room 209B
One of the biggest paradigm changes today in smart buildings is the convergence of Information Technology (IT) and Operational Technology (OT). Historically, they’ve been two distinctly different worlds and those responsible for building systems have (at best) not had much reason to work with IT, and (at worst) looked at IT as a necessary evil. With the rise of IoT devices in buildings and the evolution of building management systems, IT and OT face the challenge of having to be increasingly technically integrated, which often raises concerns when it comes to skill sets and organizational structure. Organizations who have successfully integrated these two groups will offer their insights to the audience.

Finally a Metric – How Intelligent is Your INTELLIGENT BUILDING?
Date: 6/14/2019    Time: 3:15 pm - 4:15 pm    Location: Room 209B
While intelligent building and smart city performance measures have emerged in recent years, only limited objective assessment methods and through-life measurement frameworks have been developed so far, and a suitable or broadly applicable classification system has yet to emerge. Despite this, claims about building intelligence and technological capabilities are commonly heard. But without qualitative and quantitative indicators, these claims are opaque at best and misleading at worst. As such the need for a universal Intelligent Building (IB) rating system is receiving increasing interest among building developers, building managers and policy makers. This talk presents the formation of the non-profit International Intelligent Buildings Organization, whose charter is to create a holistic International IB Index based on a framework of indicators and impact categories that can be used to describe and assess smart and intelligent buildings. The development and calibration of the tool has been undertaken by one of Australia’s preeminent universities, ensuring objective academic rigor and a truly global reach for the initiative. In this session we’ll hear from building owners, developers, contractors and supply chain stakeholders about the relevance of this standard for the industry.

A Path to Success – Developing a Smart Building DATA ARCHITECTURE Strategy
Date: 6/13/2019    Time: 11:45 am - 12:45 pm    Location: Room 207C
As more systems found in buildings become smart, they produce prodigious amounts of data. Building devices such as HVAC, lighting, access, surveillance, parking, and other non-traditional BAS systems now come with more local intelligence capable of capturing and performing local data operations ‘at the edge’. The enormity of the data captured and recorded requires serious consideration and planning for data modeling and architecture so it can be successfully operationalized. How this data is collected, transported, normalized, integrated, secured and operationalized is critical to the success of a smart building. Given the evolving complexity of the captured data sets, developing a comprehensive data architecture strategy is one of the most important foundational steps in a smart building plan.

BIM vs. DIGITAL TWIN – A Timely Discussion on Building Data Visualization
Date: 6/14/2019    Time: 10:45 am - 11:45 am    Location: Room 207B
The idea of visualizing data related to a building is not a new topic. Building Information Modeling (BIM) has been an active discussion for decades, with few organizations taking this concept from the design phase all the way through to operations and maintenance. In the last 24 months, the phrase ‘Digital Twin’ has emerged, advocating for some of the same benefits of BIM. This instructive session will define the differences or similarities between the two, talk about the various uses throughout the entire lifecycle of the property, discuss the realities of integrating visualization engines with various data sets, and bring to light the most relevant, practical and successful case studies surrounding building data visualization.

Date: 6/14/2019    Time: 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm    Location: Room 208A
A ‘Digital Twin’ is the digital replica of the physical structure. At every stage of a building’s lifecycle, digital information is generated. Massive amounts of information from BIM Models, Asset Registers, Commissioning Processes, IoT devices, alongside facility maintenance & work order data is siloed and orphaned. A Digital Twin unifies these data sources to create first-of-their-kind insights, use cases, scenario planning and simulations—accomplished in a digital environment. Further, AI and machine learning have data lakes with a depth and clarity never seen before. They uncover operation optimization opportunities within the virtual environment that can then be applied back to the physical space. In this exciting session, we’ll hear from building owners as well as supply chain stakeholders who will discuss how they’ve incorporated the Digital Twin concept into design, construction and ongoing O&M.

Now parking, building access, elevators, meeting rooms, lighting, food choices, community events and even gym equipment can be accessible by an occupant’s mobile phone. Creating a true 21st century experience includes intelligent design, technology convergence and well thought out amenities accessible via a digital platform. This conversation will take a holistic view of what this experience phenomenon is all about. Thought leaders who have been out in front of this trend will speak candidly about successes, failures, financial considerations and more.

CORPORATE REAL ESTATE Advances – Delivering a Digital Experience to the Workforce
Date: 6/13/2019    Time: 2:15 pm - 3:15 pm    Location: Room 209A
Delivering a digitally assisted experience in a corporate occupier environment requires a different strategy than that of a landlord providing a tenant engagement app for a building. Providing a unified employee experience across a company’s owned and leased space; identifying useful app functions that can be adjusted for different portfolio sites; as well as integration into a landlord’s building systems in a leased space setting are just some of the challenges corporates face. Over the last 12-18 months, companies have been wrestling with multiple issues including the questions around functionality and whether to buy vs. build. This timely and important topic will be analyzed by some of the industry’s most forward-thinking companies.

Navigating the Marketplace – A SHOWCASE of the Leading Occupant Experience Solutions
Date: 6/14/2019    Time: 10:45 am - 11:45 am    Location: Room 208A
It started five to seven years ago with applications to micro-control HVAC. Then came suggestions for lighting and access control. Add on conference room scheduling, event reservations, food and beverage orders and the idea of personally interfacing with your building from a mobile device began to swell. Just like Uber changed the local transportation industry forever, building occupant experience applications are poised to raise the bar for comfort and conveniences inside a building. Recently, there has been an extraordinary influx of over 30 new companies in this space. Keeping track of and understanding these solutions can be a daunting task. This showcase will bring the best to the stage and allow attendees to get a good understanding of the landscape.

Service Providers have been advising on the topic of Occupant Experience for a number of years. Recently, some of the global giants have taken the next step and have begun to provide Space-as-a-Service, flex pace, and coworking, competing with industry newcomers such as WeWork, Convene and others. Given their long history in our industry, their insight on this topic should prove invaluable.

Convenience and Efficiency vs. Surveillance – Defining PRIVACY in Highly Connected Buildings
Date: 6/13/2019    Time: 2:15 pm - 3:15 pm    Location: Room 205A
Connected lights, cameras, voice assistants, sensors, HVAC, elevators, meters, locks, desks, chairs, drinking fountains, fire extinguishers, parking gates, mobile phones, watches (and more) create a very technically integrated environment. This connectivity enables resource conservation, operational efficiency, enhanced experiences and financial optimization. Hyper-connectivity also enables the potential for draconian surveillance. With every square inch of a building collecting, storing and analyzing data, the concept of privacy is greatly challenged; long gone are the personal conversations and private meetings. Industry leaders will come together to examine this important and timely topic.

A New Opportunity for Owners – MONETIZING In-Building Wireless Platforms
Date: 6/13/2019    Time: 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm    Location: Room 204
For the most part, the cost of installing an in-building wireless infrastructure for cell coverage and/or WiFi was usually absorbed by the owner. In a few cases, carriers paid for their installation in high profile projects. Since wireless infrastructure is usually considered a cost, it is hard to understand how it might generate income. With the new and upcoming platforms, speed and reliability will increase while costs are coming down. Location services in conjunction with advanced marketing solutions, private networks and the opportunity to provide broadband to tenants as a service are all ideas that have the potential to generate revenue. Some of the industry’s most forward thinking in-building wireless professionals will discuss and debate this new possibility.

A High Priority – Improving Cellular and Radio Coverage Inside Buildings for PUBLIC SAFETY
Date: 6/14/2019    Time: 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm    Location: Room 205A
Most people assume that the public safety radios used by firemen, police and medical personnel always work at all emergency sites. The reality is that these radios often do not work inside buildings due to the design and materials used in the structures. According to latest data from FCC, 70 percent of all 911 calls are made from cell phones. Given the importance of public safety along with the issue of reliable cellular and radio coverage, this issue is getting more attention. While there are options in the marketplace, complexity and cost are keeping adoption from mainstream scale. This session will explore the existing options as well as emerging technologies that are promising to improve this important issue.

Kiosks, Screens and Walls – Taking the IMMERSIVE VISUAL EXPERIENCE to Another Level
Date: 6/13/2019    Time: 11:30 am - 12:00 pm    Location: Room 207D
In the beginning there were KIOSKs and TVs, then came flat screens hanging on walls. We saw them everywhere, airports, lobbies, restaurants, malls and offices. They provided directions, directories, advertising and news. Over the last three years, a new technology has made its way forward—high-resolution LED panels that can be used to construct walls of any size. These stunning screens provide new immersive and reactive visual experiences beyond the traditional contents and are radically changing how we look at both the inside and outside of buildings. Many believe that this technology will someday be classified as a building material. For anyone trying to understand what a future digital building ‘looks’ like, this is a must attend session.

Sensors, Networks, Experience and More – LIGHTING Takes on a Whole New Meaning
Date: 6/13/2019    Time: 3:45 pm - 4:15 pm    Location: Room 207D
Lights were once very analog; you turned them on or off, and maybe they could dim. We then moved on to occupancy sensing which automatically turned off lights when no one was in the room. Over the past decade, the idea of networked lighting has been continuously evolving; it is now a central point of the smart building discussion. With voice-assisted activation, active shading, occupancy sensors, light harvesting, indoor air quality, CO2/O2 monitoring, noise detection, noise monitoring, network/cloud access and more, lighting has become one of the central components of a connected building. This session will offer the opportunity for attendees to learn about the most advanced lighting ideas from the industry’s most innovative thought leaders.

The Path to Accurate People Counting – OCCUPANCY SENSING and PEOPLE TRACKING Enters Next Stage
Date: 6/13/2019    Time: 4:30 pm - 5:00 pm    Location: Room 207D
One of the most talked about issues in the built environment today is the maximization of space utilization. With pressures mounting to achieve maximum financial performance, there are now numerous ways to determine how well you are utilizing office space. As many companies move to activity-based workspaces, some occupancy sensors are also being used for people finding. Beyond the office environment, occupancy data has become a powerful tool for retail lease negotiations and retail space configurations, as it provides valuable insights into shopper traffic. Access control systems, surveillance cameras, occupancy sensors in ceilings, lights or chairs as well as that powerful communications device we carry in our pockets called the mobile phone are just some of the technologies for occupancy sensing and people tracking available today. This enlightening session will focus on the associated technical, operational, financial and privacy issues.

Water, Weather, Air Quality and Beyond – Navigating the World of Connected SENSORS
Date: 6/13/2019    Time: 5:15 pm - 6:00 pm    Location: Room 207D
Sensors are now finding their way into almost every sort of electrical-mechanical device found in a building—Samba, PIR (Passive Infrared Sensor), lighting, occupancy, motion-detection in cameras, the list goes on. We are also seeing a proliferation of sensors in equipment outside traditional building automation. Meters, weather stations, air quality, noise, parking occupancy, moisture, leakage, and bathroom supplies are just some of the newest entrants to the building sensor world. As these sensors get smaller, more powerful and less expensive, they bring a whole new set of operational opportunities. Along with the good comes a host of challenges, including integration, maintenance, and privacy. In this session, we will examine this important topic in the smart building conversation.

GSA’s Total Workplace Program, a WELLNESS & PRODUCTIVITY Case Study
Date: 6/13/2019    Time: 5:30 pm - 6:00 pm    Location: Room 205C
One of the recent mega-trends in smart connected buildings is how technology can impact wellness and the subsequent productivity that results from monitoring air quality, lighting, temperature, noise, physical activity and other environmental factors. In this session we’ll explore the concept of using HPIs (Health Performance Indicators) over traditional KPIs in the context of a joint research project at the John C. Kluczynski Federal Building in Chicago. There, GSA’s Total Workplace Program, in conjunction with Harvard's Global Buildings Study and others, collaborated to incorporate cutting-edge measurement technologies into the building design and operations processes. The goal is to integrate occupant health into GSA's evaluation of building performance while also engaging clients in a conversation on health enhancing strategies, which will be incorporated into the requirements for their new workspace.

AI and Image Recognition – Taking SURVEILLANCE to the Next Logical Step...or Not
Date: 6/14/2019    Time: 10:30 am - 11:00 am    Location: Room 207A
Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are finding their way into many different applications, including video surveillance. When you combine AI with image and facial recognition, the potential for continuous observation increases substantially. For example, in China, this type of advanced technology is being implemented at a national level; as a result it is being tried, tested and improved at an unprecedented pace. The application of these technologies has enabled an unprecedented level of surveillance, both in and outside buildings. This session will examine the latest technology developments and will explore the use cases for AI, image, facial recognition and computer vision in commercial real estate. We will, of course, include a spirited discussion on the potential threats to individual privacy.

Ingress and Egress – A Status Report on the State of ACCESS CONTROL
Date: 6/14/2019    Time: 10:30 am - 11:15 am    Location: Room 207A
In today’s uncertain world, security inside a building, especially a high profile one, is of highest priority. Managing how huge numbers of employees, contractors, suppliers, visitors, maintenance personnel and other unique occupants access the building involves challenges to ensure safety from outside threats. There are a variety of technologies and processes to facilitate secure access including physical ID, RFID, hand-swipe, employer card-key, mobile phone, as well as facial and gait recognition. In addition to providing the primary purpose of secure access, there is also the need for tight, safe integrations into other building systems, including destination dispatch elevators and tenant systems. This session will include state-of-the-art conversations on the topic.

A Focus on PHYSICAL SECURITY - Machine Learning and Other Technology Tools Emerge
Date: 6/14/2019    Time: 11:30 am - 12:00 pm    Location: Room 207A
A long-standing part of the building landscape (especially office buildings and malls) has been the security guard. Tasked with keen observance and keeping occupants safe, security guard duties will possibly be replaced—or at least augmented—by robots, drones, facial recognition, advanced audio and video technologies, gunshot recognition, particulate sensing (for bomb detection) and more. As part of a connected building strategy, it is important to develop a comprehensive physical security strategy that encompasses all of the various technologies and their capabilities. This valuable session will gather the most forward-thinking professionals on the topic of advanced physical security for the built environment.

Planning for AUTONOMOUS Vehicles – Impacts to Access, Parking and More
Date: 6/14/2019    Time: 2:15 pm - 2:45 pm    Location: Room 207D
While the first mention of autonomous vehicles can be traced back to the 1950s, the modern conversation really began with Tesla’s release of the Roadster in 2008 and the ultimate introduction of driver assist and autonomous in 2014. Over the last five years, there have been prognostications of parking lot extinction and the demise of steering wheels. As it turns out, the world works at a different pace than technology and change usually takes longer than expected. Ingress/egress strategies for autonomous vehicles, parking structure configuration options and automated parking are some of the issues on the table. This session will provide a thoughtful conversation on the state of autonomous vehicles and the impacts on building design and smart building functions.
