From the architects who choose the components to the facilities managers who maintain the finished buildings — the design, systems, technology, and data impacts every phase, from preconstruction to operations and maintenance.

What falls under Buildings 2.0?

  • Sensor-enabled smart buildings that know when they need cleaning, heating or cooling
  • Buildings that harness rainwater, use less, and recycle more
  • Resilient structures that withstand disaster
  • Sustainable buildings made from only environmentally friendly materials
  • Digital-integrations that support the way people want to live in 2017

These features can improve the environment, the longevity of the building, and the lifestyle of the end user. But they aren’t necessarily easy — or inexpensive — to implement.

Some burning questions remain:

How do we get all of these goals into one building? How much more expensive would that be, and how would we pay for it all? What do we do about objectives that seem to conflict? How do we get our codes and standards in line with these new features? How do we measure success? Who will measure success?

Join us at UI LABS while we explore the possibilities, what we truly want from our future buildings, and what more needs to be done to bring our goals closer to reality.

Agenda/Schedule

Day 1 Schedule
Time Session Toggle Session View
7:15 am – 8:00 am Breakfast and Networking
8:00 am – 8:10 am
Speakers: Matt Gray, Co-Founder, BuiltWorlds and Co-Chairman, Graycor
8:10 am – 8:45 am

The opening keynote will trace the history of what we have wanted out of our buildings and lay out the challenge of what we want now - resilience, sustainability, performance, efficiency, quality, and expression. Following this introduction to goals for the next generation of building, the speaker will frame the challenge of figuring out how we get all of this in something we can actually afford to build.

Speakers: Neil Katz, Associate, Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP, Introduced by Carter Kennedy, CEO, Solo Insight
9:00 am – 9:25 am

Jessica will introduce the concept of the WELL Building Standard as distinct from other building standard measurements such as LEED and discuss ways in which building standards are informed by data and drive particular aspects of the design process. In doing so, she will consider the ways in which building standards impact broader urban communities as well as the lives of those who inhabit them.

Speakers: Jessica Cooper, Executive Vice President, Delos Solutions & Director of Sustainability at Delos (WELL) Moderator: Walker Thisted, Producer, BuiltWorlds
9:30 am – 10:05 am

This panel will explore the collaboration between UL and ESD on the certification of data centers. In doing so, Kurt and Neil will discuss how to create a baseline for buildings that can be used to benchmark and better understand what building intelligence means and what drives outcomes. They will then take the case study of data centers to help us better understand how lessons learned in this context can be extended to other building typologies.

Speakers: Kurt Karnatz, President and Lead of Intelligent Buildings Practice, ESD Neil Lakomiak, Director of Business Development & Innovation, Underwriters Laboratories Moderator: Walker Thisted, Producer, BuiltWorlds
10:05 am – 10:35 am Break and Networking
10:35 am – 11:10 am

This panel will explore innovations in traditional building materials both in terms of how they are manufactured and how they contribute to the form and performance of the building from the perspective of energy consumption, user experience, and design. In doing so, we will look at the research and development process that goes into new building materials, the ways in which they have been deployed on projects, and the new capacities they give to designers and owners.

Speakers: Bill Pottle, Boston Valley Terra Cotta, Moderator: Walker Thisted, Producer, BuiltWorlds
11:10 pm – 12:00 pm Case Study
12:00 pm – 1:00 pm Lunch
1:00 pm – 1:40 pm

This panel will explore the ways in which new initiatives in the energy and building management sectors and being incubated, funded, and developed to better understand how we power and manage buildings and create a feedback loop for future buildings, renovation, and repositioning. In doing so, the panelists will consider ways in which new energy sources and feedback impact the design and maintenance of buildings.

Speakers: Brian Smith, CTO and Co-founder, Bractlet, Jason Blumberg, CEO & Managing Director, Energy Foundry Moderator: Walker Thisted, Producer, BuiltWorlds
1:45 pm – 2:15 pm

This panel will explore innovations in building products both in terms of how they are manufactured and how they contribute to the form and performance of the building from the perspective of energy consumption, user experience, and design. In doing so, we will look at the research and development process that goes into new building products, the ways in which they have been deployed on projects, and the new capacities they give to designers and owners.

Speakers: Ted van der Linden, Director of Innovation & Technology / Business Development, Galloway & Company, Inc. Former Director of Sustainability, DPR Moderator: Walker Thisted, Producer, BuiltWorlds
2:20 pm – 3:00 pm

During the conversation, Neil will discuss how Microsoft’s 88 acre campus in Redmond, WA served as a testing ground to develop smart building solutions Azure. He will discuss how Microsoft developed a platform to ingest data, analyze this data, and then tie this data to building management in order to drive increased efficiency. Beyond building, Neil will discuss how smart buildings are connected to Microsoft’s smart cities initiative – Cities Next. In doing so, he will explore how the building understands the personal preferences of its occupants. Neil will be joined by Kurt Karnatz who is working on similar issues at the micro scale of the building and the integration of systems that then feed into the Microsoft platform.

Speakers: Neil Ross, Microsoft Moderator: Kurt Karnatz, President and Lead of Intelligent Buildings Practice, ESD
3:00 pm – 4:00 pm Coffee and Snacks
