Intelligent Design & Construction: Aligning Smart Building Teams (Part II)
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.
To successfully navigate different rates of change between brick-and-mortar construction and modern building technology development, those managing the design and construction process need to collaborate closely. This session showcases best practices for aligning potentially contrasting motives of different smart building teams.
