Smart Building Integrator Summit (SBIS)

October 26 | 8:00 am - 10:30 am | Virtual

To begin automating a building, all roads lead to a master systems integrator. In most cases, the integrator takes the landlord’s vision and aligns industry solutions on all system levels with the goals and objectives of the client. As new touchless and healthy building technology is emerging at accelerated rates in response to COVID-19 and integrations become increasingly complex, an in-depth knowledge of building systems is required to meet the needs of today’s open architected, interoperable, integrated, IP-centric intelligent buildings, portfolios, campuses and cities. SBIS is a great opportunity to network with industry peers and learn about new health and wellness standards and COVID technologies to expand on traditional integrator services.

SESSIONS

The NEW NORMAL: How is COVID-19 Impacting the Master Systems Integrator
Date: 10/26/2020    Time: 8:00 am - 8:40 am    Location: Virtual
Master System Integrators have long been on a journey of moving from basic controls to the complexity of an integrated, interoperable smart building strategy. In this environment, new technical as well as business skills are required to deliver and execute on a more complex and comprehensive vision. Now, in the midst of a global pandemic, those responsible for delivering the next generation of smart buildings are being impacted by a new set of challenges. A heightened sense of urgency for health and wellness standards; new, evolving and unproven COVID technologies; a growing talent drain; client budget challenges; onsite safety protocols, and; a general sense of uncertainty in the real estate industry – are all topics that are addressed in this session.

Conventional Systems, IT, OT and IoT: INTEGRATING the Past, Present and Future
Date: 10/26/2020    Time: 8:45 am - 9:25 am    Location: Virtual
Integrators began the smart building journey, one system, one vendor at a time. Over the last 10 years, IT has become an integral part of the intelligent buildings landscape. In recent years, IoT, both consumer and industrial, are now also part of the connected building equation. Getting systems from various timeframes, open and closed, with different telecommunication and data protocols to result in a seamless, integrated and interoperable building is a huge undertaking. In addition to the technical requirements, understanding business drivers, objectives and budgets are also required. This session brings together leading master system integrators to address this important topic.

NextGen Predictive and Condition-Based MAINTENANCE
Date: 10/26/2020    Time: 9:40 am - 10:15 am    Location: Virtual
Mechanical systems now come with on-board analytics and sensors which can dynamically monitor how the systems are performing and exponentially increasing the potential for conditional and predictive maintenance. From adding a vibration sensor to a chiller to monitor physical changes in motor operations to analyzing downtime, faults as well as other dynamic patterns, using aggressive data aggregation and analysis now allows organizations to take a much more quantified and scientific approach to maintaining their buildings. In this session we explore how integrators and building performance professionals are leveraging IoT data to provide a higher level of client services with this next generation of smart maintenance strategies.

A DATA DRIVEN Approach to Energy Management and Sustainability
Date: 10/26/2020    Time: 10:20 am - 10:30 am    Location: Virtual
Decentralization, decarbonization and digitalization in the power industry means building owners now have unprecedented control of their energy bill and the ability to generate revenue from existing assets. Building digitization improves building operations across the board with smart sensors that identify issues in buildings’ systems, prolonging equipment life and optimizing day-to-day tasks. In this session, Jeff Hendler, CEO, Logical Buildings discusses how data and analytics can effect positive changes in buildings and the environment.

RESET Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Standards and the System Integrator
Date: 10/26/2020    Time: 10:35 am - 10:50 am    Location: Virtual
Much study has been done on Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) recently. It wasn’t long ago that IAQ meant simply managing outdoor air and CO2 levels in our HVAC systems. Then academic research from Harvard demonstrated that VOCs and various particulates, including microbes, have a measurable negative impact on health, wellness and productivity. We’re seeing a number of new IAQ standards that address commercial buildings and RESET has emerged as one of the most comprehensive, forward looking standards, assessment tools, and services organizations developed specifically to provide actionable, long term strategies towards health and sustainability for the built environment. In this, session we introduce RESET and discuss the relevance for our Integrator community.
