 What to expect during the event

Our lifestyle is increasingly getting more digital, mainly reflected in the spaces in which we spend most of our lives. We have all these nifty gadgets that aid audio-visual communications with peers and colleagues. We have the ones that entertain us. The ones that assist us when we issue voice commands. The ones that carry out utilitarian functions for us, the ones that provide us with a sense of security. The ones aimed at improving our health and overall lifestyle, and the list goes on. Little wonder these gadgets are collectively called 'Building Internet of Things' (B-IoT). But what if the functions provided by these gadgets can be integrated into buildings - right from the design stage? It all starts when Building Information Modeling (BIM) meets Systems Design. This session will explore how buildings are being designed and delivered presently and expose the missing link to providing more user-centric facilities - by making Systems Design an integral part of the building design process, leveraging BIM. It will reference the joint standard, ANSI-J-STD-710.
