The seminar schedule for Smart Buildings 2016 has been revealed.
As one of the quickest growing areas within the construction industry, the smart buildings sector will be represented at this year’s UK Construction Week event. Smart Buildings 2016 is a dedicated trade show, promoting the latest innovations within the developing sector.
As the first major event since Brexit, Smart Buildings 2016 is set to play a significant role in shaping strategy. A series of seminar sessions will reveal how the sector can be integrated into construction further.
On the first day of the show, the Smart Buildings Hub will play host to Mike Packham of Bernard Williams Associates.
Mark, who is a member of BIFM’s Operational Readiness Group, will explain how facilities managers can make a difference to the overall performance of a building by getting involved in the initial design process.
This will be followed by a seminar on data protection, which will reveal how tools and safeguards can prevent successful attacks within the universe of technology. The first day of sessions will then conclude with an exploration of ‘The “Lifi” Revolution’.
The second day will begin with a panel discussion on ‘The Connected Home and Workspace’: Iain R. Gordon, Muir Baxter and Simon Buddle will deliberate what this really means and how we can achieve it.
Dr. Martin Ganley, Director of Smart Homes and Buildings at the BRE, will present a session on getting the most out of your smart buildings; this will be followed by ‘The Future of Lighting’.
The final day will centre on ‘The IOT Revolution’. With 5.5 million devices connecting to the Internet of Things every day, it is expected that 64 billion devices will be connected by 2020. The seminar will discuss the forecasts for the IOT, the challenges it will face and the opportunities it presents.
Jeremy Towler will present ‘Closing in on the Retrofit Challenge’, a seminar developed to discuss how we can upgrade our existing properties to ‘smart’ buildings.
Finally, Jeremy Myerson will explain how our rapidly advancing technology is affecting the workplace environment, in a session entitled ‘How the Tech Industry is Redesigning the Workplace.’
