Interactive Workshops: Monday, 15 July 2019


9:00 am - 11:30 am Exploring Best Practice Approaches to Working in Seamless Partnership with Suppliers and Clients

As buildings continue to develop increasingly interconnected systems and automated infrastructure, having the right protocols in place to manage ever more complex supplier networks and intertwined automated systems is vital to the success of a project. How can businesses look to best expose the opportunities for synergy with its partners and improve its communication, trust in vendors, and management strategies?

The focus of this session will highlight:
  • Understanding how and at what stage, developers should begin to include end-users as a basis for getting the design and outcomes right for occupants
  • How to best vet vendors and other partners, and ensure quality and delivery of service
  • Monthly reports: ensuring consistency with vendors and operators when producing reports and invoices
  • Communicating and working with vendors to link intelligent systems and solutions sourced from different partners


12:00 pm - 2:30 pm Cyber Security and Managing IoT in Smart Buildings

As the influence and technology associated with the Internet of Things continues to grow in the smart building industry, security is increasingly needed to be put forward as a priority rather than an afterthought in the design process of a system. With multiple entry points to the network including intelligent building equipment, building and energy management systems, security systems, lighting, Audio-visual, fire safety and associated operational technology. This session is aimed at helping you understand best practice for design, installation, operation and maintenance of IoT securely in a smart building environment.

In this interactive workshop, you will learn the importance of:
  • Understanding the IoT phenomenon
  • Making the case for embedding security features in the design and development of IoT systems
  • Defining how intelligent building systems should be integrated with security management
  • Maintaining ongoing security targets relating to risks and customer demands
