Intelligent Design & Construction: Intro to Construction Tech (Part I)
Technology is evolving at an increasing rate, so much so that even today’s most highly evolved “smart” buildings will appear just “normal” in the next 3-5 years. Today, the majority of commercial buildings in existence for 30 years or more, are in desperate need of a refresh. Retrofitting an existing building to make it smart, attractive, comfortable, healthy, sustainable and cost-efficient can involve much more than just updating the aging HVAC, stepping up the lighting and putting in a few IoT sensors. In this series we look at a few of the most progressive examples of both new developments as well as retrofit projects and how they were accomplished.
This session introduces several construction technologies trends that are rising in the industry. Through an evaluation of important case studies, this session explores how real estate companies can effectively implement innovative ideas for intelligent building design and construction of new developments and retrofits.
