Digital Transformation and COVID-19: What is the FUTURE of Commercial Real Estate
Senior leaders in real estate organizations have been dealing with the impacts of digital transformation for some time. Coworking and office densification, data driven operations, virtualized environments and digital twins, IT/OT convergence, increasing digital connections with tenants and AI/machine learning – all are now facing critical COVID-19 and other health and wellness related issues. This pandemic accelerated the global work from home movement in ways never imagined. Executives know that when people return to buildings, they will need to be smarter, safer and more digitally capable than ever, while possibly dealing with lower income and higher expenses. Is this another micro trend or the beginning of a massive paradigm shift? Executive leaders weigh in on the biggest of issues.

Achieving PHYSICAL and VIRTUAL Balance: The Pandemic's Impact on Higher Education
Higher Education has some of the greatest challenges when it comes to bringing students back to campus and into buildings. These small cities provide places for students to learn, recreate, eat and live. In addition to the high-density environment, the social nature of young college students makes campus repopulation even more difficult. Universities across the country and around the world are taking a wide array of approaches when it comes to bringing students back. Much lower populations and alternating schedules are complimenting online and other virtual/technical options. Smarter, safer buildings using COVIDtech, enhanced digital classrooms and other strategies are discussed by leading campus facilities professionals.

Defining the Intelligent Building HISTORICALLY and in the PANDEMIC Era
Over the last 30 years the concept of a smart building has evolved greatly. We have gone from proprietary closed systems to integrated, interoperable, cloud enabled architectures. We have also gone through phases focusing on energy conservation, sustainability, operating efficiency, financial optimization, occupant experience and now health and wellness with a COVID-19 focus. While the overall strategy for a smart building remains the same, the pandemic has provided many challenges and subsequent opportunities. This session will review strategy and standards for smart buildings, use-cases as contrasted with systems and features and will culminate with a review of best practices, all aligned with the realities of an elusive pandemic.

Occupant Wellness, Healthy Buildings, Wellness Standards & Privacy Concerns
For decades a healthy building meant that it was relatively “clean” and that it met OSHA requirements. Over the past few years, largely due to the research of Joe Allen at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and the WELL, FITWELL, ASHRAE and RESET Standards, we now have a much more holistic, and scientific view of exactly what contributes to occupant wellness and healthy buildings and why it’s important to us as humans. In this session we examine the components of a healthy building strategy and as many of these initiatives may be collecting sensitive data, we also touch on data privacy and governance.

New York City office buildings are at less than 20% occupancy, major companies such as Google, Salesforce and others are pushing return dates to the summer of 2021 and the office we knew at the beginning of 2020 may be gone forever. Occupancy, density and utilization were already under attack and being challenged by coworking companies and the continued mobilization of the workforce, COVID-19 was simply an accelerant. The question on everyone’s mind is; “What does the new work environment look like?”. Hybrid is a word being widely used but many are unsure what it means. This session brings together senior IT leaders from some of the most successful companies to discuss what this new hybrid work environment, could, should, will look like.

Approaching SMART MAINTENANCE in Higher Education Facilities
Being able to clearly and quickly identify which systems are failing or underperforming can save campus facilities a significant amount of time, money and negative sentiment. This means moving from ‘fail and fix to predict and prevent”. Over the years, there have been many different approaches to FDD implementations, yielding varying degrees of success. Now we’re moving into the age of predictive and condition-based maintenance. These strategies are much more reliant on IoT, data analytics, artificial intelligence and machine learning and require a much higher degree of IT and technology skills of the operator. This valuable session allows attendees to explore how higher ed facilities leaders are moving into this next level of predictive and condition-based maintenance.

Operational Efficiency, Health, Sustainability and Occupant Experience in the NEW NORMAL
It is becoming more and more clear that the goals for embracing a smart building strategy are wide ranging and comprehensive. It does not make sense to pursue only one goal such as operational efficiency or occupant experience but rather develop a strategy that includes all goals. This provides for a more complete integrated approach as well as a faster path to financial justification. Developing a comprehensive integrated strategy for smart buildings is critical when setting project objective. This session will bring together industry thought leaders to discuss; BAS, Lighting and metering, big data, building analytics and fault detection, AI separating fact from fiction and applications “apps” for building managers, tenants and visitors.

Working from Home or Anywhere: What Does Hybrid Really Mean?
Most office buildings are at less than 10% occupancy. Major companies such as Google, Salesforce and others are pushing return dates to the summer of 2021 and the way we think about the office itself may have changed permanently. Occupancy, density and utilization were already under attack and being challenged by coworking companies and the continued mobilization of the workforce. COVID-19 was simply an accelerant and as a result, the world, including the most resistant senior management, has now learned to work remotely from anywhere. This session discusses and debates what the new hybrid operating model will look like and what it means for landlords and tenant in the short-, medium- and long-term.

Optimizing Virtual Teams: Leveraging People, Processes and Information Technology
Work as we know it has transformed over the past few months and organizations are facing the challenges of keeping remote employees, critical onsite personnel, clients and service providers connected and productive. Communication and collaboration platforms, effective cloud-based document management and file sharing, as well as fully digital financial workflows and processes are crucial for efficient virtual and hybrid working environments. In addition to identifying the right technology mix to support a hybrid workforce, many organizations struggle to build a strong corporate culture with a remote team. While “water cooler conversations” are hard to replicate in virtual environments, property managers can leverage people, processes and technology to collaborate with remote team members and keeping them connected.

REMOTE Facility Monitoring and Control: The Future of Campus Operations?
For years we have been talking about the smart, intelligent, connected and interoperable campus of the future. The idea is simple, connect all the various, disparate, multigenerational, various vendor systems into a cohesive and comprehensive networked strategy and managing a campus would become much more efficient and effective. The COVID-19 Pandemic has added a new perspective to the conversation, remote access and management capabilities. At a time when getting people physically into facilities has become more challenging, being able to access the campus systems from a laptop or iPad makes a great deal of sense. This session focuses on the current and future state of remote system access as a part of the smart campus strategy.

Cybersecurity and the Built Environment: INCIDENT SUMMARY Year in Review
Rapidly advancing technology to enable smart homes, buildings, and industries is outrunning the security needed to protect our lives, privacy, and resources. Increasingly, we depend on integrated, digital control systems to govern and monitor all aspects of our daily lives, including our critical infrastructure and commercial real estate. While digital technology improves efficiency, the downside is exponentially increased vulnerability to cyber exploitation or attack. Whether it is a nominal incident perpetrated by a mischievous individual or a massive, coordinated breach to strike fear in our customers, it is critical that we stay informed on cyber threats and their implications and there is no better way to understand what the threat landscape looks like than to review what has been happening in our industry.
