The challenge of making existing real estate Smart

With Landlords and owner-occupiers wanting to drive better energy and carbon reporting as well as reduce carbon and operational costs, existing real estate will often need a method added to achieve this beyond what the utility meters are telling them.

“Smart Buildings” as a term means so many different things. Our approach is to provide as much information as possible, along with automation and user experience improvements all whilst being agnostic of where the data resides and what equipment is being used, is an approach that has been matured by us over the last 8 years.

In this session we will look at what can be done and how to improve the reporting, explain practically how the data can be used to show what can be done to reduce energy consumption, and allow interoperability between systems improving the cause and effect scenarios for FM teams, as well as allowing tenants or owners to get the best from a building for the users. It will concentrate on existing buildings and what is required to provide a solution that can deliver all the outcomes agreed.

Speaker

John Dente

Technical Director

Having been in technology and engineering since 1979 I thrive on constantly learning new things. I started providing MSI services back in July 2014 when I started a team that made Smart Buildings come to life.

The first MSI in the UK project was a 770,000 sq.ft. iconic building for a global investment bank in the city of London. My team and I learned every day on that project and many of the principles we discovered and have since developed now form part of a very successful delivery team backed by own in house software development team.

We have developed a unique approach to Smart Buildings as a whole that is founded on practical deliverable principles. We don't talk the art of the possible, we show how it can be done. Words are easy to write, showing is proof we understand it and that is what we do collectively as a team.

From the Boiler to the Boardroom, Connecting People and Places

The technology behind a "smart building" is not new. Industries such as healthcare, data centres and defence have used the connectivity, integration, personalisation and automation to deliver, what other industries would see as, futuristic systems. The building industry has lagged in its adoption of technology, due to cost, understanding and necessity.

But, times have changed and whether its the "stick" - regulations, governance, social pressure, brand value - or the "carrot" - saving energy and money, healthier employees, motivated investors, attracting customers - you will want to lead this movement.

I see data, have done for over 20 years, as the enabler and, as such, is not the focus. We get the data right, so you trust it, then put it into action. Productivity improves, measurement is accurate, employees and customers are healthier, energy use is automated, reduced and affordable. Most importantly, your core business is improved, executives make decisions and announcements based on accurate and truthful information, and the foundation is set for growth.

Come and hear how...

Closing the Performance Gap: How Smart Building technology drives operational efficiency and productivity

The operational energy consumption of a building can be five to ten times higher than that predicted at the design stage. The difference between this anticipated and actual performance is known as the performance gap, a prominent issue within the built environment that if not addressed, will have major implications on net zero goals.

How can we close the building energy performance gap? What role does smart building technology have to play? How can we utilise digital twin technology to achieve operational efficiencies and meet certifications such as NABERS UK?

In this session, we’ll be discussing the delivery of truly smart buildings using real examples from our collaboration with leading developers, and how the technology implemented can boost operational efficiency whilst creating productive, healthy spaces for building users.

Workplace Strategy and FM in ESG reality

Workplace is not just a building. It’s about people’s work-life and facilities empowering business opportunities. Integrating people, place, process and technology is core to FM promoting workplace transformation to increase the quality of life of the people and productivity of the core business. However, it has recently been challenged by the pandemic. Since the shifting of the working behaviour impacted the physical environment, large corporates redefine their workspace and the purpose of using it accordingly to achieve corporate brand & image, as well as cost reduction.

The other signs to the workplace are ESG and Net-zero Carbon targets are critical but real estate impact is viewed as limited. According to the UNEP, buildings and construction’s share most of global energy and energy-related CO2 emissions. More than half believe their company's commitment to net zero carbon targets will change their real estate choices in the future. Leads to the growth of green building rating systems around the world and SDGs activities relate to the building sector. Therefore, ‘planet’ shall be promoted as another core of FM as a premium on sustainability.

Digitising for optimal building performance

The greatest impact on the workplace following the global pandemic has been how businesses manage space. In the new era of working, people-per-square-foot ratios are taking a backseat to flexibility and hygiene in spaces created for agile working and wellbeing. Yet while the way we use space and how our buildings need to perform is undergoing complex metamorphosis, facilities managers are facing serious budgetary challenges to make change happen and keep costs in check.

In the face of widespread cost hikes, best in breed technologies are critical to managing costs and FM efficiencies and achieving ESG targets. The key is ultimate smart integration with CAFM, BMS, AI sensors, and robotics working together as a truly flexible FM support rapidly evolving workplace demands while addressing the critical need to manage operational carbon and reduce environmental impact.

Pitched from vendor perspective, this presentation will focus on a best in breed approach to FM software, looking at how suppliers can work together effectively, unhindered by the typical headaches caused by lack of integration capabilities. Paul McCarthy, Chief Technology Officer, and Penny Brinsley, Account Director at CAFM software specialist, Service Works Global, will explore the opportunities for specialised FM software to optimise intelligent buildings, making them more economical for owners, and more functional and safer for occupiers.

How Access Control Technology Unlocks Potential for Smarter, Greener and More Efficient Buildings

In today’s always-on world, companies are increasingly executing access with mobile devices as a mechanism for the authentication and identity verification of their employees and visitors. Join HID Global’s Director of Product Marketing, Jaroslav Barton, as he describes how modern buildings are becoming smarter, greener and more efficient with open-source mobile access control.

Key takeaways include:

• More robust security: mobile access eliminates reliance on physical cards or badges, supports multiple security protocols and adds layers of security on top of basic card encryption, making it more secure than traditional physical access control.
• Operational efficiency: mobile access can be seamlessly integrated into Building Management System applications through highly secure application programming interface (API) and software development kit (SDK). With robust API and SDK building owners and facility managers are able to collect, monitor and manage terabytes of data — empowering them to make informed decisions about how spaces are being utilized.
• Convenience: Users can access buildings through mobile devices such as smartphones and smartwatches, eliminating the need for traditional key fobs and badges. Tenants can easily manage and update credentials securely through the cloud.
• Threat prevention: real-time access to data allows organizations to quickly detect and mitigate threats, allowing for sustained growth and continuous improvement of their security systems.
• Flexibility: mobile access supports multi-application, where a single product or solution can execute multiple things. Mobile credentials are issued remotely over the air, which helps to reduce physical touchpoints both for employees and visitors.
