October 3rd, 2023 IN-PERSON Technical Presentation: 
Specifying a Smart Building of the Future

Wow! What a turn out for our first Dinner of the season. Let's keep the momentum going.

Presentation Description:
How do you prepare a specification for a “Smart Building” when the term “Smart Building” has a different meaning for everyone? The intent of this presentation is to discuss the challenges when developing specifications for buildings of the future as well as provide some insights on best practices to ensure the specification and all stakeholders are aligned. A case study will be used as an example of a successful collaboration and convergence between multiple stakeholders while providing some lessons learned. Specifying a smart building involves a meticulous planning and design process to ensure that it meets its intended objectives for building that is sustainable, resilient, hyper-efficient and people-centric.
