The IBcon Smart Building Best Practice Showcase is an annual event held at the Realcomm | IBcon conference where real estate leaders present their most innovative, technology driven commercial and corporate real estate projects. These projects demonstrate leading-edge technologies and vision for intelligent and adaptive design that is transforming the next generation of IT-enabled real estate. The Weekly News Briefing will feature a unique Showcase project each week.

The University of Birmingham is ranked amongst the world’s top 100 institutions, serving researchers, teachers, and over 6,500 international students from nearly 150 countries. In partnership with Siemens, the university is delivering the campus of the future. Using cutting-edge technologies to make the Edgbaston and Dubai campuses the smartest and most sustainable globally, it offers an enhanced student experience while pursuing a goal towards NetZero Carbon over the next decade. This “Living Lab” captures data from the university’s building technologies, estates infrastructure and energy plants. Scrutinizing energy demand and production - from systems to individual consumers/producers (prosumers) - with live data provides a unique opportunity for applied learning for students and creates a platform for cutting-edge research. Additionally, the University of Birmingham is the first university in the world to roll out Internet of Things (IoT) technology at scale.
