A digital framework for digital buildings

Wednesday 12th October 13:45 - 14:30

Spaces & Infrastructure

Buro Happold has developed a digital framework for delivering smart/smarter buildings. The presentation will summarise how they are using data and data modelling techniques to engage a broad spectrum of stakeholders, and define their operational needs in an actionable brief.

A smart building project should address the needs of multiple stakeholders and ensure any one technology is fully leveraged to benefit the many. Tom will showcase how their digital framework gives them the agility to navigate a complex landscape including ‘stakeholders’, ‘use-cases for technology’, ‘user journeys and experience’, and the inter-dependencies of a ‘technology pallet’.

Defining an outcome-orientated brief is the crucial first stage in any smart building project, and a digital approach provides clarity for solution development, procurement, and ultimately a smarter built environment in operation for People & Planet.
