Before data can flow or systems can talk to each other, we must establish a sound and comprehensive network infrastructure strategy. A building is comprised of many different systems; a common converged network is needed for increasingly complex buildings, yet it is still not commonplace. Whether it is traditional Active Ethernet or the less common (yet growing) Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON), building networks are the basis for additional smart technologies. Segmented or converged networks or architectures are just a few of the issues up for discussion.
Join Donny Walker, Clayton Broemsen, Steve Corcoran, Bayron Lopez Pineda, and Ana Rawson for this session!
When designing and delivering a truly smart building, all roads lead to the master systems integrator who takes the owner/developer’s vision and aligns the people and technologies for all systems and processes in order to achieve the desired outcomes. SBIS is a great opportunity to network with industry peers and learn about the impact of IAQ and ESG standards and regulations, and how to expand on traditional integrator services.
DESIGNING AND SPECIFYING AN INTELLIGENT BUILDING
As the intelligent building market matures in adoption, there is still not a clearly defined path to achieving success. There are so many variables for each project including input from design team, integrators, manufacturers, and ownership stakeholders. Most people agree that a design is needed to clearly articulate the expectations. What are the key ingredients that are required in any intelligent building design? In this session, our panel deep dives into the key elements that are required, along with different models for achieving this success. Objectives include defining the client’s business goals and developing metrics to measure success and understanding the foundational infrastructure to support the integrated systems.

We are witnessing an ever-increasing number of devices connected to building networks which are producing voluminous amounts of data. Although that raw data holds a treasure trove of insights that can fundamentally impact operational efficiencies and occupant experience, it must first be cleaned, normalized, tagged, organized and analyzed. Well-managed data yields astute, actionable information for decision-making. In this session, we explore a sound architecture strategy that addresses methodologies for collection, transportation, normalization, integration, analysis, and protection of data.

The corporate world has embraced and mainstreamed ESG initiatives. More importantly, investors see the worth in using ESG metrics to calibrate a company’s value, sustainability, and ultimate impact on society. In fact, many companies (despite the pandemic) have benefited economically from being early adopters. In order to actualize ESG targets, companies need to be able to measure, monitor and manage a complex variety of inputs to evaluate and rank their ESG footprint. A number of scorecards and best practices have been developed and are continually evolving. This session examines the digital tools available and how to prioritize and employ them successfully.

The Smarter Stack is a framework that illuminates all the pieces necessary to make buildings smarter and make explaining smart building solutions easier. The Smarter Stack Tool is an open-sourced planning tool and guide that visually depicts requirements for buildings and is available for anyone. It is being used by building owners, operators, facility management, system integrators, solution and service providers to design and collaborate their smarter building initiatives using an open, interoperable approach. In this session, industry leaders present the Smarter Stack, go through an exercise with the tool, and share some “stack” examples.

The 11th annual Smart Building Best Practice Showcase returns to Realcomm | IBcon. For this super-session, we’ve assembled some of the world’s most progressive and successful implementations of smart buildings, portfolios and campuses. These projects represent the next generation of open, interoperable, integrated and IP-centric buildings.
In this showcase setting, attendees will have the opportunity to meet face-to-face with representatives for each project who will share their strategies and address topics such as energy conservation, operational efficiency, enhanced occupant experience, sustainability achievement and financial optimization.
Stop by to see Hampton Whatley and learn more about our Project!
