Buildings 2.0 Conference
When3.13.2019 - 3.14.2019
Sensor-enabled smart buildings that know when they need cleaning, heating or cooling. Buildings that harness rainwater, use less and recycle more. Resiliency buildings that withstand disaster. Sustainable buildings made completely from environmentally friendly materials.
The features of Buildings 2.0 are incredible and promising, potentially improving the environment, the longevity of the building, and the lifestyle of the end user. The problem is, they aren’t necessarily easy — or inexpensive — to implement.
Some burning questions remain for businesses:
What are the important emerging technologies disrupting everything? How important is it to put these features into buildings? How do we pay for it? Who are the major players dominating the market? How do you compete? How do we get our codes and standards in line with these new features? … are just a few of the questions you might have.
Join us as we spend a full day exploring the opportunities of future buildings, and what needs to be done to bring our goals closer to reality.

Buildings 2.0 VIP Kick-Off Reception
Day 2 Schedule
Isabel Singer, BuiltWorlds Research Analyst
Keynote: Building Where We Stand
As new products crop up in our buildings, how do we ensure the materials we are using are structurally stable, fire safe, and non-toxic to the environment and community? Chris Hasbrook, Vice President & General Manager of the Building & Life Safety Technologies Division at UL will provide insight into the process for vetting and validating new products and materials.
Panel: Innovative Materials Strengthening the Core
Everyday we’re discovering new materials that are greener, cheaper, safer, and stronger. In this panel, we will explore the triumphs and challenges of using innovative materials to strengthen the core of our buildings.
Fireside Chat: Further Unlocking the Value of the Digital Twin
The value of a BIM model doesn’t end when construction is completed. Learn how a digital twin of your building can streamline operations and maintenance.
Panel: Advances in The Building Envelope
The building envelope has often been viewed as the building’s protective layer and a critical component to a building’s security and internal environment. As technology advances, we are finding that the building envelope is being used to increase efficiency and control a variety of factors including air quality, lighting, noise, and the overall cost of building maters. In this panel, we will further explore how new approaches are increasing the need for more collaboration among diverse industry stakeholders.
Fireside Chat: Blockchain - What Does it Mean for Managing Smart Buildings?
Blockchain is the new hot topic across industries. In this Fireside chat, Brittanie Campbell Turner and Bassem Handy will give an inside look into ways cryptocurrency will impact the way buildings are managed.
