Using 1 Bligh Street, and Building C at 45 Waterloo Road as case studies, we  will look at how the integration of smart building technologies has resulted in an adaptive architecture that responds to the environment and its occupants needs to provide the highest levels of comfort and wellness while minimising energy use and environmental impact. In both cases, smart building technology is used to monitor and adjust building systems for optimal outcomes in:

  • Occupant comfort
  • Wellness
  • Building Management
  • Monitoring and data collection for accreditation and performance analysis
  • Security
  • Connectivity
  • Flexibility

3:00 pm - 3:40 pm Smart Buildings Must Work with Smarter Supply Chains to be Truly Sustainable

Robin Mellon - CEO Supply Chain Sustainability School
The term 'sustainability' has broadened in use to include more environmental factors than just energy and water, more economic issues than risk and resilience, and more social topics than health and safety. Smart building programs are emerging as an effective solution to save costs, manage risks and improve outcomes, but sensors and systems aren't enough; construction and management supply chains must be more sustainable as well. This session will outline:

  • How real time reporting can increase visibility around both energy use and modern slavery
  • What data and is likely to become more useful as owners and project managers track efficiency
  • How 'sustainable procurement' isn't just another standard but a way of changing your business
