Fourteen Can’t-Miss Technology Providers Participating in the Buildings Conference



The annual BuiltWorlds Buildings Conference brings together industry-leading contractors, designers, developers, building operators, investors and solution providers to discuss all things building technology and connect with like-minded pros.

Whether you’re looking to identify, evaluate, and learn from existing and developing technologies, or simply aiming to get a pulse of the quickly-growing AECO industry, the Buildings Conference is your power tool to cut through the noise.

Major topics to be covered in 2024 include preconstruction technology; building planning and design solutions; innovation in building materials and systems; energy transition, decarbonization, and sustainability; and digital twins and building modeling.

What Other People Are Saying

Real Estate Developer / Owner

The Buildings Conference is purpose-built to provide all players in the AECO industry with data-driven and expert information regarding leading technologies and trends shaping the built environment. Understanding that the building and construction sectors account for approximately 40% of global energy-related carbon emissions, developers and owners are tasked with contributing to global efforts to reduce carbon emissions and combat climate change. These changes often require the use of technology to boost efficiency and reduce the amount of energy required to operate our cities.

Members of the AI/ML Research Track will hear from Jonathan Ehrlich, CEO of T2D2, an AI-driven building inspection suite that allows owners to easily catch and track building deterioration, in turn, reducing maintenance costs and risks. Jon and other attendees will discuss the fundamentals of AI from the AE perspective and its impact on the industry.

Similarly, Lamarr.AI, a newer solution launched in 2021, offers “MRI scans for building envelopes.” Lamarr Co-Founder and COO will be participating in the Demo Night Competition on May 22.

Another Demo participant, Algoma, partners with real estate developers to automate the repeatable delivery of zero-carbon buildings to transform the environment we live in by lowering the cost and design process using a library of standardized building components.

Building or Facility Operator

Building and facility managers seemingly have countless technology options readily available on the market to help them optimize their portfolios. Depending on factors like the size and complexity of a facility, budget, operational requirements, and compatibility with existing systems and workflows, knowing what’s best for your unique building can be challenging.

Whether you represent a leading building management firm scouting new tech or an individual interested in what's coming next, this conference will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of where adoption sits today and where it's headed.
