Empowering Smart Buildings: Improving Productivity and Reducing Operational Costs

October 26, 2017 @ 7:30 am - 9:30 am


Join the Smart Buildings Center (SBC) for a breakfast event on October 26th in Seattle to discuss how the built environment can integrate smart buildings strategies to increase productivity, reduce costs, improve building operations, and support sustainable efforts for your organization.

Beginning with an informal light breakfast, attendees will be able to network and visit resource kiosks which feature items such as the real time energy performance dashboard (SkySpark) tracking building system performance of the Pacific Tower. Attendees will also see displays of building diagnostic tools available from the Tool Lending Library housed at the SBC. A smart screen board will be accessible that allows participants to view analysis visualizations of energy and performance data.

The formal program begins at 8:15am with a welcome address by Jim Baggs, Customer Service, Communications & Regulatory Affairs Officer of Seattle City Light. At 8:30am, the SBC Board of Directors will participate in a facilitated panel discussion that highlights smart building technologies and practices and how this region is taking a leadership position in bringing these ideas to market.
