9:35 am - 10:35 am Integrating Biophilic Design in Intelligent Buildings to Achieve True Sustainability

Digby Hall, Architect,Weave Studio
As intelligent buildings evolve, the focus moves beyond energy efficiency to creating buildings that are at once technological works of art and cradles for people to finally re-connect at the deepest levels with Nature and with each other This session will propose that we place Biophilic Design as the highest priority of sustainability and indeed of the design process and identify where intelligent buildings can support that goal either through enhanced performance and management or discreet design.

  • Biophilia and biophilic design: science & evidence, key design elements, measurability and the design process
  • Conflicts or complements: where intelligent buildings and IoT can overlap with the human-in-nature context, hindering or enhancing wellness
  • A glimpse into the possible futures

4:15 pm - 4:55 pm Working with Smart Supply Chains to Achieve Sustainability in IoT Equipped Infrastructures

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
