Delivering a sustainable built environment means balancing the sometimes competing requirements of occupant health and well-being, energy reduction, embodied carbon reduction, environmental protection, and climate resilience. To achieve this, we need to increasingly do more with less. Key to unlocking this more efficiently sustainable future is the use of data and digital building technology.
This talk will present the drivers behind sustainability performance in buildings, how these are pushing the boundaries of current design solutions and the latest digital building technologies that can help us deliver the future we want.
