Our premium event on Smart Buildings.
How A.I., machine learning, IoT, and other emerging technologies have infiltrated our buildings and what it means for the industry.
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.
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 built industry companies:
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?
These are just a few of the questions we'll explore in-depth at the event.

The difference between a typical industry event and a BuiltWorlds event? The quality of the people in the room. Speed networking is our way of connecting you with the other influencer’s in the room. We’ll show you the rules once you arrive!

Most new buildings begin with the an idea in the mind of a clients. This idea could lead to a competition, a commission, a master plan, or even the preservation of an existing building. As the client contemplates the type of building they want to solve their problem, they must consider the style of the building, how they want it to perform, how it might adapt to new market forces or patterns of use, and, ultimately, how long they will own the building. They further must consider what type of operation structure they will put into place once the building is complete. During this conversation, we will explore how these concerns differ depending on the type of client, program of project, and overall scale.
9:00 am – 9:30 am
Once the brief for a building has been solidified, the architect must consider how they are going to meet that demand and distinguish themselves from other architects that might also be competing for the same job. During this panel, we will explore how architects are developing unique styles that helps them to stand out as well as how they are adopting best practices in environmental, structural, and systems engineering so that the buildings they produce perform at the highest level. At the same time, we will explore how architects are looking beyond the scope of their building in order to consider how it is integrated with the city and how it can have a positive social and economic impact.
9:30 am – 10:00 am
Buildings at all scales are the result of collaboration between a team of consultants that address different specialized aspects of building design that range from structural engineering to mechanical systems, plumbing, AV and IT, energy performance, and civil engineering. The input of their groups is often what defines how well the building performs and the ease with which it will ultimately be operated by the owner. As a result, it is essential to carefully coordinate the work of these groups and ensure that it meets future demands for the project.

The last two decades have seen tremendous advances in the materials out of which buildings are constructed. Computer aided design and digitally aided fabrication have led to a new level of precision that can be used to construct highly complex geometries. During this discussion, we will explore how designed chose materials, how these materials contribute to building performance, and how contractors are learning how to build to the specifications. We will also look at how unique materials can contribute to the identity of the building and a sense of place.
10:45 am – 11:15 am

It is increasingly important to understand how a building is being used, how it is consuming energy, and how it can be linked to other platforms and technologies that support the inhabitants. During this conversation, we will explore how data is collected from a wide range of systems and spaces, how this data is analyzed, and how the results are used to better manage the building so that it can be maintained in the most effective manner possible.
