The EI East Midlands branch would like to invite you to the Smart Buildings and the Future of Work presentation.
The rate of change in building management technology over the past decade has been swift and diverse. Keeping current with the latest building technology is difficult due to the large number of advances every year. To ensure success, building owners and operators unequivocally need to be aware of both the benefits and limitations of the newest technologies. Failure to do this may result in missed opportunities to reduce operational and energy costs and, improve occupant comfort and staff productivity. The BEMS market is evolving along with the ecosystem of intelligent building technologies such as control systems and wireless technologies.
While energy management was the initial focus of BEMS, organisations now want these solutions to optimise sustainability, space utilisation, operational efficiency, and employee productivity. As a result, today’s smart buildings are starting to leverage the Internet of Things (IoT) and building-information modelling (BIM) to connect various systems and devices to a centralised technology backbone. Through integration of real-time performance data and analysis to the BEMS, smart buildings are able to assist facility managers proactively identify problems before they occur to drive efficiency.
Kas Mohammed, Regional Director (Digital Energy Midlands), Schneider Electric will present what trends and drivers are driving the need for smart buildings, what exactly is a smart building (including building service systems such as BMS, fire systems, lighting etc) and what value it will bring to businesses. Kas is an experienced BMS controls professional and has been involved in many key initiatives and projects over the years and now leads the Schneider Electric UK BEMS product team and BEMS delivery team with 100 engineers across the Midlands region. He is passionate about making buildings smarter and has engaged with many customers about how technology across a building can enhance the customer experience, optimise energy usage and improve maintenance efficiency.
