The Challenge of Smart Building Integration 

In this session, panelists will discuss the challenges of integrating new climate and other building technologies so that they speak to each other, work together, and are able to be managed by the building engineers through a single software platform. Smart technologies include energy and lighting controls, building management systems, dynamic glazing, air quality, occupancy sensors, security, and elevators. Challenges and solutions will be presented.

This course is submitted for 1.5 General GBCI CE hour and 1.5 AIA LU/HSW.

Smart Building Operators: The Workforce of the Future

 

Evolving technologies in integrated high-performance buildings require skilled personnel to operate increasingly complex buildings and are raising the bar on advanced skills needed to operate IoT-connected and optimized systems. As a result, owners are facing a workforce gap in highly skilled labor, while at the same time new opportunities for high-road jobs are emerging. In this session, we will explore workforce development challenges in the evolution of smart buildings and discuss opportunities to support high-road jobs for vulnerable communities.   

This course is submitted for 1.5 General GBCI CE hour and 1.5 AIA LU/HSW.
