FACT OR FICTION – Making Sense of The RETech, PropTech and CRETech Landscape
Billions of dollars, numerous capital sources, thousands of companies, dozens of reports, conferences everywhere, some fact, some fiction and a fair amount of confusion define the times. With multiple names to choose from, the RETech | PropTech | CRETech industry, has been in existence for over 40 years. Companies such as Siemens and Honeywell on the smart building side and Yardi and MRI on the Real Estate information management side set the foundation long ago. Since 2009 a tremendous amount of capital has been raised and invested in this newest iteration of PropTech. Angels, VCs, Accelerators, RE Tech Firms and RE Companies are all participating. With all of this increased activity comes a great deal of confusion. This thoughtful and thorough presentation will uncover the fact and fiction of PropTech, and offer advice for navigating the complexity.

INNOVATION @ SCALE – Real Estate Powerhouses Weigh-In
The Commercial and Corporate Real Estate industry is experiencing one of the biggest periods of change in history. Much of this disruption is coming from the impacts that technology, automation and innovation are having on our business. Process automation, smart buildings and new ways of using space are all changing the way we design, build, lease, operate, transact and use buildings.

It is relatively easy to experiment with a new technology in a single building where the risks and exposure are low, but much more complicated to attempt to innovate at scale. Commercial and Corporate Real Estate represent complex ecosystems. Blueprints, leases, paying rent, parking, security access, maintenance requests and performance reports all contain an inordinate amount of data and process automation. Business requirements for standardization, cybersecurity protocols and privacy issues create additional hurdles to overcome.

On this General Session segment, Zorba Manolopoulos, Global Program Manager, Smart Campuses, Facebook Kevin Danehy, Global Head of Corporate Development, Brookfield Kenneth Finnegan, CIO, Managing Director of Technology, Hudson Yards-Related; and Jared Summers, Digital Foundation Manager, ExxonMobil will discuss Real Estate Innovation @ Scale.

These executives represent some of the most notable and recognizable companies in the world and they are all taking a very aggressive approach to transforming how they manage and use every aspect of their Real Estate operations. This panel of extraordinary professionals will present a good mix of perspectives from both the tenant and landlord side of the relationship, as well as describe their roles in the digital transformation process. As technology reaches through the center of the buildings, into tenant suites and back to the owner’s operating team, establishing future-proof strategies for Real Estate will continue to be challenging.




Facebook, which has changed the way we communicate and socialize digitally with over one billion users globally, is applying their digital prowess to their own corporate campus.











Brookfield, one of the largest Commercial Real Estate owners and operators in the world, is set to use their size to create new benchmarks and accelerate innovation in our industry.









Hudson Yards, which was constructed on 28 acres over an existing rail yard in New York City, is the nation’s largest private development and has set new standards for Innovation @ Scale.










ExxonMobil, one of the largest oil companies in the world with buildings around the globe, is applying an aggressive innovation strategy to its new Spring, TX, HQ and portfolio at large.




Meeting the challenge for changing the Real Estate industry through technology, automation and innovation takes all types of participants - small, medium and large - to start the discussion and then show the way. As the market makers step in and take the discussion to the next level, we see Real Estate Innovation @ Scale bring accelerated industry acceptance and true transformation. This exceptional panel with their various roles and perspectives will set the stage for two days of fast paced, cutting-edge, timely discussions and debates on how we all need to REcalibrate our thinking about the relationship between Technology and Real Estate.

TRACK: AUTOMATING EVERYTHING
LEASE PROCESS AUTOMATION – Exploring the Host of Market Approaches
Understanding the status of leasing activity is one of the most important functions in a Real Estate company. Ultimately, leasing space and building occupancy are what provide the income stream for the asset. Throughout the years, there have been many approaches to Lease Process Automation. Real Estate companies have built custom solutions to meet very specific needs; taken CRM platforms and modified them; and utilized market platforms to radically streamline the lease drafting, negotiating and abstracting processes by using structured data to enable context-aware document automation. This session will gather thought leaders representing various approaches to Lease Process Automation and address integrating these processes into an overall enterprise strategy.

Digital Screens and Walls – Taking the IMMERSIVE VISUAL EXPERIENCE to Another Level
In the beginning there were flat screens hanging on walls. We saw them everywhere, airports, lobbies, restaurants, malls and offices. They provided directions, directories, advertising and news. Over the last three years, new technologies have made their way forward—high-resolution digital media that can now radically expand a building occupant’s experience. These stunning screens provide new immersive and reactive visual experiences beyond the traditional contents and are radically changing how we look at both the inside and outside of buildings. Many believe that ‘Digital Walls’ in buildings will replace brick and mortar and become windows to the imagination and the world. For anyone trying to understand what a future digital building will look like, this is a must attend session.

INNOVATION PROGRAMS – Creating Agile Organizations Equipped to Manage the Pace of Technology
In an attempt to stay relevant in the ever-changing real estate industry, corporate innovation programs are finding their way into the digital transformation fabric of commercial real estate. Beyond hiring a chief digital, transformation or innovation officer solely responsible for driving digital disruption within their organizations, other internal approaches have proven to be very effective. While some companies established cross-departmental teams to foster new ideas, others merely changed the name of existing committees—or turned over the leadership of a previously IT-driven task force to someone on the business side. This extensive session will present organizations who have implemented various innovation programs to discuss their successes and challenges.

Setting the Foundation – Developing a Comprehensive Enterprise DATA STRATEGY
There has always been a great deal of data generated within a Real Estate organization. Financial, tenant, leasing, market, operational and many other forms of data flows have not only increased in sophistication—but also in volume and frequency. Organizations are now challenged with organizing, normalizing, integrating and analyzing large amounts of data in order to enable the business to make better tactical and strategic decisions. To align with this challenge, companies must now develop comprehensive enterprise data strategies to ensure all data-related processes, from data architecture and model to ongoing governance, are taken into consideration. This essential session will bring together the industry’s most progressive thought leaders who will share their insight on this topic.

As the world continues to embrace the idea of smart, intelligent, high-performance buildings, this concept of hyper-connectivity is a double-edged sword. While IoT promises all the benefits of energy savings, operational efficiency, enhanced occupant experience and financial optimization, it comes with the consequence of privacy infringement. GDPR in Europe and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) have real implications for ways building owners and operators will need to manage the data from their building systems. Every camera, microphone and sensor now has the potential to be hacked, creating an environment of overreaching surveillance. When that happens, how will employees and shareholders react? What privacy rights are at stake? Who is liable? Which laws have jurisdiction? All these topics are up for discussion in this crucial session.

A Path to Success – Developing a Smart Building DATA ARCHITECTURE Strategy
As more systems found in buildings become smart, they produce prodigious amounts of data. Building devices such as HVAC, lighting, access, surveillance, parking, and other non-traditional BAS systems now come with more local intelligence capable of capturing and performing local data operations ‘at the edge’. The enormity of the data captured and recorded requires serious consideration and planning for data modeling and architecture so it can be successfully operationalized. How this data is collected, transported, normalized, integrated, secured and operationalized is critical to the success of a smart building. Given the evolving complexity of the captured data sets, developing a comprehensive data architecture strategy is one of the most important foundational steps in a smart building plan.

The Journey Begins – Creating a Comprehensive SMART BUILDING STRATEGY
There are numerous opinions on the definition of a smart, connected, energy-efficient, digitally engaging, intelligent building. There are some common categories in which most people group smart building attributes: energy/sustainability, operational efficiency, space utilization, occupant experience, and wellness. Due to traditional organizational structures, these five components are often dealt with separately. A comprehensive smart building strategy must be wide and deep and take into consideration all five groups at the same time, as well as roll-up into a comprehensive portfolio view. This session will bring together those organizations who have spent years developing their smart building strategies, sharing their challenges and successes.

MICROSOFT EXECUTIVE BRIEFING – An IoT Platform for Experiencing and Managing Commercial Real Estate
The term 'smart building' was coined in the 1980s after networking and connectivity changed what could be done in the built environment. Today that term is taking on new meaning, driven by growing possibilities for a new, more elevated idea of 'smart'. The Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) have great potential to help building owners, operators, and occupants manage and dwell in buildings with greater efficiency—saving costs and energy, and organizing space in a way that best fits a company’s culture and goals. Microsoft's goal is to empower every customer to transform their businesses, and the world at large, with connected solutions. This session will show how to seize opportunities and overcome challenges when embracing digital transformation for your buildings and businesses.

Connected METERS Come of Age – Understanding the Challenges and Opportunities
It has long been the goal to better understand utility data for water, gas, electric and compressed air, whether from a bill or directly from data flowing from the meters. Understanding information at a high level of granularity requires capturing the data as close to the point of usage as possible. Adoption of IP connectivity options has gone a long way to advance the idea of ‘connected meters’. Although relatively simple in concept, the industry is still struggling to perfect smart, affordable, utility grade meters. This informative session will focus on an update of the latest and most advanced technology, a review of leading-edge case studies, and a lively discussion on the business merits of this technology.

Slow and Steady – AI and the Impact on Real Estate
Artificial Intelligence made its way into public consciousness when Google’s AlphaGo AI group beat Lee Sedol, the Korean Go champion, in March of 2016. While AI had been in the works for a number of years, it was this battle between machine and human in one of the world’s most complex board games that brought attention to the potential of AI. Soon after, Elon Musk and others began to call for an AI Governance body. While the capabilities of the technology are unnerving, its potential for unlocking value of companies’ largely unstructured data is limitless. The Real Estate industry, a market full of large data sets, has been slow to adopt Machine Learning. Tenants, workforces, leases, assets, portfolios as well as markets could all gain a higher level of efficiency with AI.

Digital transformation is a phrase that has become over used. While many are quick to extol the virtues of DT, there remains some confusion as to what it actually means. Is it simply taking the filing cabinets and re-engineering the processes within into digitized, automated sequences? Or does it have more far-reaching implications? With the advent of mobile technologies and the cloud, it becomes easier to engage employees, tenants, suppliers and everyone involved in the Real Estate ecosystem. In some cases, this transformation calls for a total rethink of business goals and objectives. This enlightening session will focus on the definition of digital transformation and examples of those leading the way.

CORPORATE REAL ESTATE Advances – Delivering a Digital Experience to the Workforce
Delivering a digitally assisted experience in a corporate occupier environment requires a different strategy than that of a landlord providing a tenant engagement app for a building. Providing a unified employee experience across a company’s owned and leased space; identifying useful app functions that can be adjusted for different portfolio sites; as well as integration into a landlord’s building systems in a leased space setting are just some of the challenges corporates face. Over the last 12-18 months, companies have been wrestling with multiple issues including the questions around functionality and whether to buy vs. build. This timely and important topic will be analyzed by some of the industry’s most forward-thinking companies.

Convenience and Efficiency vs. Surveillance – Defining PRIVACY in Highly Connected Buildings
Connected lights, cameras, voice assistants, sensors, HVAC, elevators, meters, locks, desks, chairs, drinking fountains, fire extinguishers, parking gates, mobile phones, watches (and more) create a very technically integrated environment. This connectivity enables resource conservation, operational efficiency, enhanced experiences and financial optimization. Hyper-connectivity also enables the potential for draconian surveillance. With every square inch of a building collecting, storing and analyzing data, the concept of privacy is greatly challenged; long gone are the personal conversations and private meetings. Industry leaders will come together to examine this important and timely topic.

Building a Modern DATA SCIENCE TEAM – Where Does Your Company Stand?
Real Estate companies have had data analysts for a long time. These are the folks responsible for organizing and sifting through data looking for important issues, patterns and trends. While much of the work has been done on spreadsheet-type tools, the team members—while often fairly knowledgeable about Commercial Real Estate—rarely have the technical skills of what people are now calling a Data Scientist. Understanding new, very sophisticated technical tools, learning how to analyze ever-growing and complex data sets, knowing when to bring in outside data sources—and continuing to ask business questions (whether they seem relevant or not) are just some of the issues to be addressed. Where does your company stand on the topic of data science?

We then moved to connecting the building and all of its components and are now touching the tenants with mobile experience applications. All of these must now positively impact corporate performance in measurable ways. In a few short years, the entire commercial real estate information ecosystem has expanded and is looking to be integrated.

Over the last 50 years we have progressed from building automation to connected buildings, and now we are familiar with the Building Internet of Things. Each new generation of building technologies brings a greater degree of connectivity. With every electro-mechanical device found in a building now connected to the network, the potential for cybersecurity breaches grows exponentially. For those new to the journey, creating a thoughtful, comprehensive cybersecurity strategy can be overwhelming. Inventorying systems, cyber assessment, pen testing, training, hardware and software strategies, selecting external resources, budget considerations and identifying best practices are just some of the topics to be discussed.

Understanding the Options – Unpacking the BUILDING OPERATING SYSTEM (Panel & Vendor Showcase)
We’re continually connecting more devices in buildings for the purpose of data collection and control. As the complexity of smart buildings increases, so does the need to have an organized, comprehensive, standardized way of managing all these different systems. Over time, the debate has even questioned the need for a Building Operating System. While there are data integration platforms, dashboards, analytics programs and other applications associated with smart buildings, the question remains: “What are the best options when it comes to meeting the requirements of what one would consider a holistic building operating system?” In Part One of this session, industry thought leaders will share their insights on the topic and in Part Two, we’ll follow with a product showcase of the leading solutions.

'Smart' Gets Complicated – A Conversation Between LANDLORDS and TENANTS
Developing a smart building or campus for a single tenant is quite different than working in a multi-tenant environment. Historically, the landlord had responsibility for the common areas and their responsibility stopped at the tenant’s front door. As buildings have become more technologically complex the lines have begun to blur. Data sharing, building network accessibility, wireless infrastructure, access control strategies and integration of different occupant experience applications are just some of the instances where technology is forcing a rethink of the relationship between tenant and landlord. Thought leaders from both sides of the table will lead this discussion on their changing roles and responsibilities.

FAULT DETECTION AND DIAGNOSTICS – Identifying, Managing and Fixing the Problems
While there are many different aspects of an intelligent building, one of the typical objectives is the incorporation of fault detection and diagnostics (FDD). Being able to clearly and quickly identify which systems are failing or underperforming can save a building operator a significant amount of time and money. Over the years, there have been many different approaches to FDD implementations, yielding varying degrees of success. From selecting a system to the development of a plan that can react to the multitude of identified problems, FDD brings with it a unique set of complexities. This valuable session will allow attendees to explore fault detection and analytics options with the industry’s most experienced professionals.

Sensors, Networks, Experience and More – LIGHTING Takes on a Whole New Meaning
Lights were once very analog; you turned them on or off, and maybe they could dim. We then moved on to occupancy sensing which automatically turned off lights when no one was in the room. Over the past decade, the idea of networked lighting has been continuously evolving; it is now a central point of the smart building discussion. With voice-assisted activation, active shading, occupancy sensors, light harvesting, indoor air quality, CO2/O2 monitoring, noise detection, noise monitoring, network/cloud access and more, lighting has become one of the central components of a connected building. This session will offer the opportunity for attendees to learn about the most advanced lighting ideas from the industry’s most innovative thought leaders.

The Path to Accurate People Counting – OCCUPANCY SENSING and PEOPLE TRACKING Enters Next Stage
One of the most talked about issues in the built environment today is the maximization of space utilization. With pressures mounting to achieve maximum financial performance, there are now numerous ways to determine how well you are utilizing office space. As many companies move to activity-based workspaces, some occupancy sensors are also being used for people finding. Beyond the office environment, occupancy data has become a powerful tool for retail lease negotiations and retail space configurations, as it provides valuable insights into shopper traffic. Access control systems, surveillance cameras, occupancy sensors in ceilings, lights or chairs as well as that powerful communications device we carry in our pockets called the mobile phone are just some of the technologies for occupancy sensing and people tracking available today. This enlightening session will focus on the associated technical, operational, financial and privacy issues.

Promoting a Healthy Workplace – Using Technology to Enhance a WELLNESS Strategy
Employee wellness has become a major topic for executives in companies large and small. From standing desks, better air quality, circadian lighting, exercise options, and healthy food programs, there’s been an increased focus on how wellness in the workplace translates to higher productivity and a healthier bottom line. While many of the discussion options contain no technology, there are places where innovation and automation come into play. Some of the topics include integrating wellness into an occupant experience application; providing digital exercise programs such as Peloton; developing rewards programs based on data from wearables such as Fitbit; and using sensor data to monitor air and water quality. This instructive session will provide a comprehensive view on where technology can touch and integrate with a wellness program.

Transforming Commercial Environments – Key Insights from the First Annual STATE of the SMART BUILDINGS MARKET STUDY
Smart building technologies have been available to building owners and managers for over a decade. In that time, we have seen innovative showcase projects demonstrate the powerful benefits of advanced automation and control, connectivity, and analytics. However, most buildings have still not adopted a smart building approach that leads to improved safety, productivity and space utilization. This spring, Navigant Research partnered with Intelligent Buildings, Anixter and UL to launch the inaugural “State of the Smart Buildings Market” study. Leaders across the real estate market were interviewed; the study fielded an extensive survey of decision-makers across North America. Join this instructive session to hear the research highlights and key insights impacting building readiness and the near-term outlook for smart commercial spaces.

Water, Weather, Air Quality and Beyond – Navigating the World of Connected SENSORS
Sensors are now finding their way into almost every sort of electrical-mechanical device found in a building—Samba, PIR (Passive Infrared Sensor), lighting, occupancy, motion-detection in cameras, the list goes on. We are also seeing a proliferation of sensors in equipment outside traditional building automation. Meters, weather stations, air quality, noise, parking occupancy, moisture, leakage, and bathroom supplies are just some of the newest entrants to the building sensor world. As these sensors get smaller, more powerful and less expensive, they bring a whole new set of operational opportunities. Along with the good comes a host of challenges, including integration, maintenance, and privacy. In this session, we will examine this important topic in the smart building conversation.

Managing the Chaos – How to Effectively Vet and Assess the Multitude of PROPTECH OPPORTUNITIES
With over 3,500 companies to evaluate, just imagine how long it would take to thoroughly understand every solution. At simply an hour per company, which would be considered a light evaluation, it would require almost two years for one person to assess the CREtech solution landscape. To bring order to this chaos, some progressive and forward-thinking organizations put together structured plans and procedures to create a process for identifying and adopting innovative technologies. Establishing leadership, creating a budget and developing a cross-functional team are just some of the facets of standardizing the innovation process. For those responsible for digital transformation within their organization, the insight from these industry leaders will be invaluable.

BIM vs. DIGITAL TWIN – A Timely Discussion on Building Data Visualization
The idea of visualizing data related to a building is not a new topic. Building Information Modeling (BIM) has been an active discussion for decades, with few organizations taking this concept from the design phase all the way through to operations and maintenance. In the last 24 months, the phrase ‘Digital Twin’ has emerged, advocating for some of the same benefits of BIM. This instructive session will define the differences or similarities between the two, talk about the various uses throughout the entire lifecycle of the property, discuss the realities of integrating visualization engines with various data sets, and bring to light the most relevant, practical and successful case studies surrounding building data visualization.

A Focus on PHYSICAL SECURITY - Machine Learning and Other Technology Tools Emerge
A long-standing part of the building landscape (especially office buildings and malls) has been the security guard. Tasked with keen observance and keeping occupants safe, security guard duties will possibly be replaced—or at least augmented—by robots, drones, facial recognition, advanced audio and video technologies, gunshot recognition, particulate sensing (for bomb detection) and more. As part of a connected building strategy, it is important to develop a comprehensive physical security strategy that encompasses all of the various technologies and their capabilities. This valuable session will gather the most forward-thinking professionals on the topic of advanced physical security for the built environment.

Cybersecurity BOOT CAMP – The Steps to Developing a Comprehensive Cyber Program
For those just now being introduced to the concept of smart, connected buildings, the topic of building cybersecurity may also be new. The dilemma of a building being hacked and business disrupted is a growing concern in the Real Estate community. One of the biggest misconceptions is that only the newest buildings are at risk and that older building automation systems are less likely to be breached. Nothing could be further from the truth. Whether it is an old, hidden DSL modem, or just the overall lack of sound, secure password protocols, the risks are real. This Cybersecurity Bootcamp will be taught by the industry’s most experienced and forward-thinking smart building cybersecurity professionals. Anyone in the beginning stages of attempting to digitally secure a building will not want to miss this terrific session.

Shorter Term, Higher Velocity Leases – A New Type of AUTOMATION PLATFORM Is Required
Long-term leases, once the only option to lease commercial space, are seeing a move toward shorter, more flexible terms. Along with the need to show local and regional space availability, there are a host of additional digital features that contribute to the flex space experience. Locate a city, zero in on a building, check for available desks, hit submit and you’re ready to work. The process is becoming so seamless that some compare it to Uber. Additionally, functions that automate the amenity booking process, as well as safety and security are all making their way into the digital strategy. Finally, billing and expense tracking for this new type of short-term lease are prompting everyone to rethink the traditional leasing process. Anyone involved in flex space automation issues will not want to miss this session.

The Intersection of Two Worlds – The Continuing Convergence of IT and OT
One of the biggest paradigm changes today in smart buildings is the convergence of Information Technology (IT) and Operational Technology (OT). Historically, they’ve been two distinctly different worlds and those responsible for building systems have (at best) not had much reason to work with IT, and (at worst) looked at IT as a necessary evil. With the rise of IoT devices in buildings and the evolution of building management systems, IT and OT face the challenge of having to be increasingly technically integrated, which often raises concerns when it comes to skill sets and organizational structure. Organizations who have successfully integrated these two groups will offer their insights to the audience.

Building a SMART BUILDING TEAM – Navigating in a Skills Shortage Environment
If an organization is serious about developing or retrofitting a building to exemplify next generation thinking, it truly needs to be a group effort. If every aspect of the building is going to be rethought as it relates to new and emerging technologies, a variety of intellectual capabilities will be required. Once leadership, vision and budgets are established, the work of building a team begins. Internal personnel as well as a multitude of external resources must be assembled to effectively deliver the next generation building. To add to the complexity, this must be done in an environment where technology is changing daily and the required skills are in short supply and high demand. Those with real-world experience in this process will share their perspective and insights.

Smart Building DIGITAL TWINS – The Industry Weighs-In
A ‘Digital Twin’ is the digital replica of the physical structure. At every stage of a building’s lifecycle, digital information is generated. Massive amounts of information from BIM Models, Asset Registers, Commissioning Processes, IoT devices, alongside facility maintenance & work order data is siloed and orphaned. A Digital Twin unifies these data sources to create first-of-their-kind insights, use cases, scenario planning and simulations—accomplished in a digital environment. Further, AI and machine learning have data lakes with a depth and clarity never seen before. They uncover operation optimization opportunities within the virtual environment that can then be applied back to the physical space. In this exciting session, we’ll hear from building owners as well as supply chain stakeholders who will discuss how they’ve incorporated the Digital Twin concept into design, construction and ongoing O&M.

Planning for AUTONOMOUS Vehicles – Impacts to Access, Parking and More
While the first mention of autonomous vehicles can be traced back to the 1950s, the modern conversation really began with Tesla’s release of the Roadster in 2008 and the ultimate introduction of driver assist and autonomous in 2014. Over the last five years, there have been prognostications of parking lot extinction and the demise of steering wheels. As it turns out, the world works at a different pace than technology and change usually takes longer than expected. Ingress/egress strategies for autonomous vehicles, parking structure configuration options and automated parking are some of the issues on the table. This session will provide a thoughtful conversation on the state of autonomous vehicles and the impacts on building design and smart building functions.

Finally a Metric – How Intelligent is Your INTELLIGENT BUILDING?
While intelligent building and smart city performance measures have emerged in recent years, only limited objective assessment methods and through-life measurement frameworks have been developed so far, and a suitable or broadly applicable classification system has yet to emerge. Despite this, claims about building intelligence and technological capabilities are commonly heard. But without qualitative and quantitative indicators, these claims are opaque at best and misleading at worst. As such the need for a universal Intelligent Building (IB) rating system is receiving increasing interest among building developers, building managers and policy makers. This talk presents the formation of the non-profit International Intelligent Buildings Organization, whose charter is to create a holistic International IB Index based on a framework of indicators and impact categories that can be used to describe and assess smart and intelligent buildings. The development and calibration of the tool has been undertaken by one of Australia’s preeminent universities, ensuring objective academic rigor and a truly global reach for the initiative. In this session we’ll hear from building owners, developers, contractors and supply chain stakeholders about the relevance of this standard for the industry.

An Important Part of the Smart Building Strategy Process – A Modern Approach to the REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL (RFP)
The process of developing buildings has been constantly redefined over the last 50-75 years. Each new project brings new opportunity to rethink the many components that make up a building. However, the level of innovation actually accomplished with each iteration is up for debate. One of the key components is the RFP Process. It is here that ideas are defined and various providers have the opportunity to respond with their capabilities. In many cases, due to time constraints and the fact that building technologies historically did not change fast, many continue to use outdated techniques. This session will focus on historical methodologies in the RFP process compared to new, more digital and innovative approaches.
