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.
