Virtual PRECON | Commercial Real Estate CIO Roundtable

INCLUDED SESSIONS ARE:

Agility, Flexibility and Vision – The Importance of IT LEADERSHIP in Troubled Times
In recent years the role of the Real Estate IT professional has greatly expanded. Adding to the list of back office systems, smart building technologies including tenant apps and emerging tech, have made the role increasingly complex. With the arrival of COVID-19, the list of responsibilities has expanded once again. COVIDtech, WFH, Virtual Remote Tours, COVID related project management and technology related requirements now fall under the role of the Real Estate CIO. This session brings together leading CIOs from various sectors of the Real Estate industry for a frank discussion on the challenges of managing successful IT teams in today’s Real Estate organizations.

Back to the Office - What Does the ULTIMATE HYBRID WORK Environment Look Like?
New York City office buildings are at less than 20% occupancy, major companies such as Google, Salesforce and others are pushing return dates to the summer of 2021 and the office we knew at the beginning of 2020 may be gone forever. Occupancy, density and utilization were already under attack and being challenged by coworking companies and the continued mobilization of the workforce, COVID-19 was simply an accelerant. The question on everyone’s mind is; “What does the new work environment look like?”. Hybrid is a word being widely used but many are unsure what it means. This session brings together senior IT leaders from some of the most successful companies to discuss what this new hybrid work environment, could, should, will look like.

Efficiency, Insight and Profitability - DATA STRATEGY, Science, Integration and Analytics
    Location: Virtual
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 brings together the industry’s most progressive thought leaders who share their insight on this topic.

Virtual PRECON | CEO|COO|CFO|CAO Innovation Forum

INCLUDED SESSIONS ARE:

Digital Transformation & COVID-19 – What is the FUTURE of Commercial Real Estate
Senior leaders in Real Estate organizations have been dealing with the impacts of Digital Senior Real Estate executives have been grappling with digital transformation for some time. Among others, co-working and office densification, data driven operations, virtualized environments and digital twins, IT/OT convergence, increasing digital connections with tenants, and artificial intelligence/machine learning are now facing critical COVID-19 as well as other health and wellness related issues. This pandemic accelerated the global work from home movement in ways never imagined. Executives know that when people return to buildings, they will need to be smarter, safer and more digitally capable than ever, while possibly dealing with lower income and higher expenses. Is this another micro trend or the beginning of a massive paradigm shift? Executive leaders weigh in on the biggest of issues.

So Many Questions, Major Decisions – How Is Your Organization Leveraging Its DATA?
Under normal circumstance the business of Commercial Real Estate is complex and in continuous flux, but this pandemic has been like gas on the flames. Technology, data and innovation are now being used in ways never imagined. Lease payment delinquencies, defaults, debt restructuring, and day-to-day operations are just some of the challenges facing the industry. In these times of stress, a comprehensive, well-governed, enterprise data and workflow strategy is imperative. Knowing and predicting where tenants are before they do, tightening internal business processes, accurate budget forecasting and leveraging external data are just some of the topics discussed in this important conversation on data.

Working from Home or Anywhere: What Does Hybrid Really Mean?
Most office buildings are at less than 10% occupancy, many major corporate tenants are now pushing re-entry dates to the summer of 2021 and the way we think about the office itself may be changing permanently. Occupancy, density and utilization have been under attack for years, have been challenged by coworking companies and the continued mobilization of the workforce. COVID-19 was simply an accelerant thrown on the fire. In this session the question we address what the hybrid new work environment looks like and what it means for landlords and tenants in the short, medium and long-term.

Virtual PRECON | Higher Education Smart Campus Summit

INCLUDED SESSIONS ARE:

Achieving PHYSICAL and VIRTUAL Balance - The Pandemics Impact on Higher Education
Higher Education has some of the greatest challenges when it comes to bringing students back to campus and into buildings. These small cities provide places for students to learn, recreate, eat and live. In addition to the high-density environment, the social nature of young college students makes campus repopulation even more difficult. Universities across the country and around the world are taking a wide array of approaches when it comes to bringing students back. Much lower populations and alternating schedules are complimenting online and other virtual/technical options. Smarter, safer buildings using COVIDtech, enhanced digital classrooms and other strategies are discussed by leading campus facilities professionals.

REMOTE Facility Monitoring and Control - The Future of Campus Operations?
For years we have been talking about the smart, intelligent, connected and interoperable campus of the future. The idea is simple, connect all the various, disparate, multigenerational, various vendor systems into a cohesive and comprehensive networked strategy and managing a campus would become much more efficient and effective. The COVID-19 Pandemic has added a new perspective to the conversation, remote access and management capabilities. At a time when getting people physically into facilities has become more challenging, being able to access the campus systems from a laptop or iPad makes a great deal of sense. This session focuses on the current and future state of remote system access as a part of the smart campus strategy.

Approaching SMART MAINTENANCE in Higher Education Facilities
Being able to clearly and quickly identify which systems are failing or underperforming can save campus facilities a significant amount of time, money and negative sentiment. This means moving from ‘fail and fix to predict and prevent”. Over the years, there have been many different approaches to FDD implementations, yielding varying degrees of success. Now we’re moving into the age of predictive and condition-based maintenance. These strategies are much more reliant on IoT, data analytics, artificial intelligence and machine learning and require a much higher degree of IT and technology skills of the operator. This valuable session allows attendees to explore how higher ed facilities leaders are moving into this next level of predictive and condition-based maintenance.

Virtual PRECON | IB Bootcamp

INCLUDED SESSIONS ARE:

Defining the Intelligent Building HISTORICALLY and in the PANDEMIC Era
Over the last 30 years the concept of a smart building has evolved greatly. We have gone from proprietary closed systems to integrated, interoperable, cloud enabled architectures. We have also gone through phases focusing on energy conservation, sustainability, operating efficiency, financial optimization, occupant experience and now health and wellness with a COVID-19 focus. While the overall strategy for a smart building remains the same, the pandemic has provided many challenges and subsequent opportunities. This session will review strategy and standards for smart buildings, use-cases as contrasted with systems and features and will culminate with a review of best practices, all aligned with the realities of an elusive pandemic.

Expanding IT, Heightened CYBERSECURITY and RISK Management in Times of Crisis
In the days of “building automation”, the systems were basic, were not connected, had very little IT interface, did not collect or share data or effectively communicate with each other. Fast forward to 2020 and the day of the IT connected facility has arrived. With this strong reliance on Information Technology (IT), the smart building architecture has become much more sophisticated and subject to more scrutiny and attention to issues such as Cybersecurity. In today’s smart building strategy, IT is the foundation. This session will cover; the backbone (wired and wireless), Cybersecurity fundamentals and remote access to buildings, building systems and cybersecurity policies and finally, exploring the boundaries of risk management.

Operational Efficiency, Health, Sustainability and Occupant Experience in the NEW NORMAL
It is becoming more and more clear that the goals for embracing a smart building strategy are wide ranging and comprehensive. It does not make sense to pursue only one goal such as operational efficiency or occupant experience but rather develop a strategy that includes all goals. This provides for a more complete integrated approach as well as a faster path to financial justification. Developing a comprehensive integrated strategy for smart buildings is critical when setting project objective. This session will bring together industry thought leaders to discuss; BAS, Lighting and metering, big data, building analytics and fault detection, AI separating fact from fiction and applications “apps” for building managers, tenants and visitors.

The NEXT STEPS in the Smart Building Journey – Bringing it All Together!
The smart building journey is just that, a journey. Each destination or project provides for great learning opportunities and provides the foundation for the next endeavor. It is safe to say that the building of yesterday, disconnected, non-intuitive, unengaging, energy wasting and operationally inefficient is no longer an option. In the final session of the Intelligent Buildings Bootcamp, industry leaders will discuss; the complex and comprehensive nature of Master Systems Integration, the financial realities and strategies as it relates to smart building projects, stakeholders aligned interests, budgets, implementation and management and the strategy for continuing education through Realcomm|IBcon and other industry resources and organizations.

Virtual PRECON | Smart Building Integrator Summit (SBIS)

INCLUDED SESSIONS ARE:

The NEW NORMAL – How is COVID-19 Impacting the Master Systems Integrator
Master System Integrators have long been on a journey of moving from basic controls to the complexity of an integrated, interoperable smart building strategy. In this environment, new technical as well as business skills are required to deliver and execute on a more complex and comprehensive vision. Now, in the midst of a global pandemic, those responsible for delivering the next generation of smart buildings are being impacted by a new set of challenges. A heightened sense of urgency for health and wellness standards, new, evolving and unproven COVID-Technologies, a growing talent drain, client budget challenges, on-site safety protocols and a general sense of uncertainty in the Real Estate industry are all topics that are addressed in this session.

Conventional Systems, IT, OT and IOT - INTEGRATING the Past, Present and Future
Integrators began the smart building journey, one system, one vendor at a time. Over the last 10 years, information technology (IT) has become an integral part of the intelligent buildings landscape. In recent years, IoT or the “Internet of Things”, both consumer and industrial are now also part of the connected building equation. Getting systems from various timeframes, open and closed, with different telecommunication and data protocols to result in a seamless, integrated and interoperable building is a huge undertaking. In addition to the technical requirements, understanding business drivers, objectives and budgets are also required. This session brings together leading master system integrators to address this important topic.

Virtual PRECON | Property Manager Technology and Innovation Forum

INCLUDED SESSIONS ARE:

Building Automation, Smart Buildings and IoT - The Journey Continues
The concept of a smart building is continually evolving. What started with automating single systems has evolved to include an integrated, interoperable approach for the entire Internet of Things (IoT) landscape for buildings. Monitoring and controlling buildings for operational efficiency, financial optimization, occupant experience and health and well-being has proven to be extremely valuable, especially in the COVID-19 era. To take full advantage of the benefits of smart buildings, understanding how building automation changes the role of the property manager and what skills are needed to manage an intelligent building is crucial. This session addresses the status of building automation today and what’s on the horizon for the next decade.

Cybersecurity and Data Privacy for Property Managers
Whether impacting traditional enterprise systems, financial transactions, smart, connected buildings or physical security, cyber breaches have been affecting real estate organizations for several years. With the advent of COVID-19, cybersecurity threats have been accelerating at an unprecedented pace and new vulnerabilities have surfaced. On top of the heightened threat landscape, data privacy concerns have played an increasing role in new building technology application implementations, such as health scanning units and contact tracing apps. This session reviews some of the cybersecurity and data privacy challenges property managers are facing in the COVID-19 era and how to navigate this new demanding environment.

Occupant Wellness, Healthy Buildings, Wellness Standards & Privacy Concerns
Date: 10/26/2020    Location: Virtual
For decades a healthy building meant that it was relatively “clean” and that it met OSHA requirements. Over the past few years, largely due to the research of Joe Allen at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and the WELL, FITWELL, ASHRAE and RESET Standards, we now have a much more holistic, and scientific view of exactly what contributes to occupant wellness and healthy buildings and why it’s important to us as humans. In this session we examine the components of a healthy building strategy and as many of these initiatives may be collecting sensitive data, we also touch on data privacy and governance.

Optimizing Virtual Teams - Leveraging People, Processes and Information Technology
Work as we know it has transformed over the past few months and organizations are facing the challenges of keeping remote employees, critical onsite personnel, clients and service providers connected and productive. Communication and collaboration platforms, effective cloud-based document management and file sharing, as well as fully digital financial workflows and processes are crucial for efficient virtual and hybrid working environments. In addition to identifying the right technology mix to support a hybrid workforce, many organizations struggle to build a strong corporate culture with a remote team. While “water cooler conversations” are hard to replicate in virtual environments, property managers can leverage people, processes and technology to collaborate with remote team members and keeping them connected.

The Real Estate ENTERPRISE DATA STRATEGY – Developing a Cohesive Plan
Date: 10/26/2020    Time: 3:30 pm - 4:15 pm    Location: Virtual
Back office data, smart building, IoT, tenant/occupant as well as some very interesting public and private external data sources have been developing exponentially over the years. Add to this the increasing number of new data streams associated with emerging communication technologies such as WiFi 6, BLE, CBRS and 5G and the puzzle gets even more complicated. This data has traditionally resided in disconnected equipment, spreadsheets, outdated computing solutions and now numerous cloud platforms. Organizing data into a cohesive strategy is critical in order to achieve organizational efficiency as well as hyper-effective business insight. It is no longer an option to rely on disconnected, disparate and unorganized data, hence this session focuses on the development of a strategic data strategy.

Enabling The "Expanded" Enterprise DIGITAL MINDSET
Date: 10/27/2020    Time: 10:00 am - 10:45 am    Location: Virtual
For many Commercial Real Estate organizations, the digital transformation journey has been a challenge. Having a business based on in-person meetings and file cabinets, it was not always easy to change the analog culture of a company. IT teams were already expanding the digital mindset to move from simple back office functions to also include tenant and occupant experiences and smart buildings. If that was not enough, the outbreak of COVID-19 reconfigured the digital mindset to include a much more robust work from home component and many of the old rules are simply outdated. The Real Estate industry as a whole has seen more change forced upon them in a few months and reconfiguring the culture is a focus of this session.

Navigating LEASE RISK in Volatile Times at the Tenant, Property and Portfolio Level
Date: 10/27/2020    Time: 2:30 pm - 3:15 pm    Location: Virtual
Since COVID-19 hit, business interruption has been significant. While some have seen little impact and even improvements, many if not most traditional businesses, including landlords, have been negatively impacted. Office, retail and industry landlords are faced with the need to project NOI when much of the data they are used to relying on is no longer relevant. In this new reality, industry players looking to assess lease risk and value at the tenant, property and portfolio levels are now looking to new solutions from the technology and data world to empower more robust predictions and look at risk factors more in-tune with the times, like the WFH shift, rent relief requests and more.

Developing A True WFH WORKFORCE - Going Beyond the Zoom Call
Date: 10/27/2020    Time: 4:30 pm - 5:15 pm    Location: Virtual
The Work from Home (WFH) movement, over 3 decades old, spawned from the creation of laptop computers, modems and complex networks. Fast forward to today, high-speed internet, an explosion of mobile devices and a significant improvement in technology such as video and cloud and the WFH movement has become increasingly more widespread. Despite this potential, many organizations including Silicon Valley Tech giants have resisted this change. Many have required an in-office presence (Yahoo)– until COVID-19. Since March, the entire world has gotten a lesson in working from home (the good and the bad). It has changed the landscape and the question now begs, what’s next? This session attempts to provide guidance on what the balance between WFH and “in the office” will be.

Date: 10/27/2020    Time: 8:00 am - 8:45 pm    Location: Virtual
For building owners COVID has presented one of the most stringent tests of disaster recovery responsiveness in recent history. It has also taught us much about how we can implement a variety of modalities to work more efficiently and effectively. In this session we examine some fundamental issues, such as: Key challenges? What works and what doesn’t for remote workers? How do we leverage what has worked well and then, how do we improve it? How have our tenants shifted behavior and is that changing the way we work? How can technology further support the future of work? Now that we have changed our view on “proximity” being a main driver of efficiency and productivity, will we see more outsourcing of certain activities? In this important session we hear from key industry leaders grappling with these questions and more

Hyper Efficiency – The ROBOTIC PROCESS AUTOMATION (RPA) Journey Continues
Date: 10/27/2020    Time: 3:30 pm - 4:15 pm    Location: Virtual
Many CIOs are turning to Robotic Process Automation to eliminate redundant and tedious tasks to focus on more productive activities. In order to be effective, RPA requires proper design, planning, execution and governance. While some see RPA as a stopgap to intelligent automation based on machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI), it remains a top automation option in an IT strategy. Using RPA tools, a company can configure a software ‘robot’ to automatically process a transaction, manipulate data, trigger responses, or communicate with other digital systems. Developing a plan, assessing current needs and systems, selecting platforms, and strategy execution are all be part of this important discussion.

Post-COVID Perspectives from Senior Investment Managers – A View from the Debt Field
Date: 10/26/2020    Time: 3:30 pm - 4:15 pm    Location: Virtual
One of the most impacted markets within commercial real estate this year has been in commercial mortgage-backed securities (CMBS). According to Moody’s Analytics August report, “approximately $34.8 billion has subsequently moved into special servicing, more than triple the overall balance in just four months”. Servicers have seen the 60 – 89 day delinquency rate for CMBS loans skyrocket, especially those within the hospitality and retail markets – less in industrial and office. Loan defaults and loss rates will still present serious challenges in the coming months. Some servicers have also been able to capitalize on unforeseen opportunities that were created as a result of the coronavirus. During this virtual roundtable discussion, we explore each of their responses and get their assessments of the impact of COVID-19 on the commercial real estate and the CMBS market.

The Challenge of RETURNING TO THE OFFICE – Initial Lessons Learned
Date: 10/26/2020    Time: 3:30 pm - 4:15 pm    Location: Virtual
In January of 2020, the traditional office was bustling. Ever evolving and moving toward flexibility and improved occupant engagement, that trajectory was abruptly stopped by mid-March. COVID-19 had spread to North America and the office as we know it may never be the same. After months of almost no occupancy, people are very slowly returning. On average, 10% occupancy seems to be the current number while some corporate tenants have pushed their return into the summer of 2021. How do we make buildings safe? What are the new amenities? How many office workers will return are just some of the many questions being asked. This session includes those organizations leading the way back into the office and the lessons they have learned.

PRIVACY in Connected Healthy Buildings - Efficiency, Experience, Safety & Surveillance
Date: 10/27/2020    Time: 4:30 pm - 5:15 pm    Location: Virtual
COVID-19 has impacted the globe and the focus on healthy buildings has been taken to a new level. Exceptional air quality, clean surfaces, touchless entry solutions and healthy occupants are just some of the goals. There is no doubt that new protocols and the “connected building” will play a role in achieving these new benchmarks. Wellness as well as efficiency and experience will require a fair amount of new technology. With all of this connectivity, including sensors, cameras, microphones, location services, contact tracing, analytics and AI, the potential for hyper-surveillance is here. GDPR in Europe and CCPA in California are leading the privacy fight but the debate of health over privacy has just begun for building owners and operators.

Date: 10/27/2020    Time: 9:00 am - 9:45 am    Location: Virtual
Now that just about every device and subsystem in buildings is IP-enabled and communicating data in real time, the potential of cyber threats has escalated exponentially. Each time we add new technology and equipment, whether to meet the needs of environmental policies, occupancy monitoring, access or physical security controls, we run the risk of exposing cyber vulnerabilities. This fundamental problem has been exacerbated by the mass deployment of COVID related solutions that have been installed, often without the proper infrastructure or InfoSec standard. In this session we review strategies and solutions to mitigate the risk of deploying these new IoT devices and connecting them to our building networks.

Reinventing the TENANT EXPERIENCE in the Current and Post-COVID Era
Date: 10/27/2020    Time: 3:30 pm - 4:15 pm    Location: Virtual
At the beginning of 2020 the Tenant Experience conversation was continuing the trajectory it started more than five years ago. Desk sharing efficiency, tenant apps scheduling yoga and ordering coffee and immersive experiences were just a few of the talking points of the conversation. Since COVID-19 has stopped the world in its tracks, experiences in buildings are quite different. Due to health restrictions, Yoga and the coffee pot are gone, high density, flexible seating is unsafe and many of the traditional amenities that used to attract tenants are no longer viable. This session explores what some of the most innovative and creative landlords are doing to create a compelling, post-COVID Tenant Experience.

Long Development Cycles and Changing Tech - ALIGNING SMART BUILDING TEAMS
Date: 10/26/2020    Time: 3:30 pm - 4:15 pm    Location: Virtual
Most buildings are built with a 50-75-year life expectancy. Contrast that paradigm with a scenario where emerging advanced building technologies change daily and the challenge of developing future-ready buildings becomes apparent. The technology features of major building systems are advancing so rapidly that a spec’d component may become functionally obsolete before the project is even completed. Those managing the design and construction process need to be aligned. What are the standards? What does integration look like? Will new equipment manufacturers and software providers survive? Will the new technologies complement existing investments, or be totally obsolete? Join the discussion on how to align these sometimes contrasting realities.

SMART MAINTENANCE - Conditional and Predictive
Date: 10/26/2020    Time: 4:30 pm - 5:15 pm    Location: Virtual
Historically we have either adhered to a strict maintenance schedule or waited for a piece of equipment to break before it was attended to. Today, most new equipment comes from the manufacturer with on-board analytics and sensors which can dynamically report how the systems are performing, increasing the potential for Conditional and Predictive maintenance exponentially. Adding a vibration sensor to a chiller to monitor physical changes in motor operations (condition-based) or analyzing changing patterns as a result of aggressive data aggregation and analysis (predictive) allows organizations to take a much more quantified and scientific approach to maintaining their buildings. Understanding the architecture required for system connectivity, warehousing options as well as the plethora of analytics tools are the foundation for this discussion.

DIGITAL TWINS For Buildings – Understanding This Complex and Evolving Solution Set
Date: 10/27/2020    Time: 10:00 am - 10:45 am    Location: Virtual
Digital Twins are virtual representations of building that integrate data from BIM, BAS, IoT, workflows and other data sources and bring this data together where it is then normalized and semantically tagged to provide context and understanding of what is going on in the building in real-time, 3D, highly visual format. The goal is to create a living digital representation of a building which would be used as a platform for dynamic, ongoing predictive operations and maintenance. To achieve this goal, a few questions need to be addressed. What are the challenges? Do we need data standards? How difficult and costly is it to maintain the integrity of the model? This session discusses the opportunities as well as a potential roadmap for Digital Twins for buildings.

Power Over Ethernet (POE) and Digital Electricity – LOW VOLTAGE Buildings Arrive
Date: 10/28/2020    Time: 8:00 am - 8:45 am    Location: Virtual
The historic battle between DC and AC (Edison vs Tesla and Westinghouse) for electricity standards was epic and literally changed the course of our nation. The capabilities, efficiency and cost of the two competing technologies resulted in AC becoming the standard. Many still believe, however, that DC (both high and low voltage) is the logical choice now, especially in buildings. In the quest for Zero Net Energy Buildings, several innovative developers have attempted to employ low voltage DC systems in buildings. Today, Power over Ethernet (PoE) and Digital Electricity are getting attention as a significantly less expensive and flexible option. From small test projects to entire buildings, low voltage DC is gaining momentum.
