Smart Building Integrator Summit (SBIS)

June 14 | 14:00 - 18:00 | Orange County Convention Center

When designing and delivering a truly smart building, all roads lead to the master systems integrator who takes the owner/developer’s vision and aligns the people and technologies for all systems and processes in order to achieve the desired outcomes. As new cloud, IoT and data technologies are emerging at accelerated rates and integrations become increasingly complex, an in-depth knowledge of building systems as well as client business requirements are needed to meet the needs of today’s open architected, interoperable, integrated, IP-centric intelligent buildings, portfolios, campuses and cities.

SBIS is a great opportunity to network with industry peers and learn about the impact of IAQ and ESG standards and regulations, and to expand on traditional integrator services.

Designing and Specifying an Intelligent Building
Date: 6/14/2022    Time: 2:10 pm - 2:45 pm    Location: W312A
As the intelligent building market matures in adoption, there is still not a clearly defined path to achieving success. There are so many variables for each project including input from design team, integrators, manufacturers, and ownership stakeholders. Most people agree that a design is needed to clearly articulate the expectations. What are the key ingredients that are required in any intelligent building design? In this session, our panel deep dives into the key elements that are required, along with different models for achieving this success. Objectives include defining the client’s business goals and developing metrics to measure success and understanding the foundational infrastructure to support the integrated systems.

MSI’s Role in Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) for Buildings
Date: 6/14/2022    Time: 2:55 pm - 3:40 pm    Location: W312A
Enlightened building owners understand that achieving a building’s financial, social, and environmental goals requires leveraging both building science and data science. Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) are increasingly becoming a top priority. The tools and technologies available today enable building owners of new and existing buildings to reach zero energy consumption and healthy indoor air quality without spending a premium in construction costs. This session discusses early onboarding of MSIs on Tier 1 contracts to support design decisions. MSI value is reviewed for Operational Technology programming, verification of “open” standardization for Operational Technologies, and detailed control estimating to verify budget. Scope of work bundling for the MSI is discussed relating to multi-disciplinary Operational Technologies, Div. 25 System Integration and Div. 27 Communications.

The Value of the Independent Data Layer (IDL)
Date: 6/14/2022    Time: 4:45 pm - 5:00 pm    Location: W312A
This session explores the value of the independent data layer in smart building infrastructure deployment. A generic definition of the IDL is a real-time, time-series historian for cross platform data storage and whole-building data analytics for performance-based analysis and advanced notification systems comparing trended operational data against either historical or simulated context. The session discusses many options for incorporating an IDL, best practices for connecting building technology to the IDL, and ways to consider connecting the IDL to advanced data analytics and visualization platforms. Simulation is the missing link to establish the proper context, utilizing physics-based modeling, to assess and manage building performance over the life of the building. By integrating modeling and simulation with a traditional IDL, building owners have the tools to assess a building’s performance against the design intent for new building or performance potential for existing buildings. An integrated IDL answers the question, “Did I get what I paid for?”
