The Roadmap for Digital Transformation is more than Technology

Efficient communication and coordination are important in many organizations to drive success in organization goals, performance, project launches and management etc.  How then, can something that seems so basic be a challenge when it comes to the construction industry?

A breakdown in collaboration between trades, inability to connect the job site with the office, siloed project information, and a lack of project visibility are routinely found to be key causes of project delays and cost overruns. Utilizing innovative technology to connect teams and standardize processes across all projects have been found to increase productivity and protect margins for businesses that have embraced digital transformation. When all data and construction workflows can be connected on a single platform, it is time to ditch information silos and paper-dependent processes.

In this session, learn about the benefits of construction innovation with Makati Development Corporation (MDC) and Procore Technologies.  Ms. Ginaflor C. Oris, Chief Finance Officer and Corporate Finance and Procurement Group Head of MDC will share how they have benefited from digitally transforming their business on a single platform.

Digitization of construction worksites: 8 ideas for running sustainable projects

Most studies on climate change now agree on the influence that human activity has on our planet's climate and temperatures. It is now estimated that if nothing is done, the average temperature of our planet could rise by up to 5°C by the end of the century, with the dramatic consequences that we are already witnessing right now.

One of the measures to prevent this worst-case scenario from happening is the Paris Agreement for climate change, signed in 2015, which aims to limit this temperature increase to + 2˚ globally compared to the pre-industrial era. Achieving this goal requires the most greenhouse gas-emitting human activities to begin a large-scale transformation aimed at limiting their CO2 emissions into the atmosphere.

The construction sector has therefore a vital role to play in Environmental and Energy Transitions. Digital technology, when made available to site teams, can help speed up the transformation of working methods and accelerate the evolution to more eco-friendly projects.

Discover with our experts a selection of 8 pragmatic ideas, based on these 3 levers, to make your worksites more sustainable using a simple tablet or smartphone and Finalcad digital solutions.

How to Manage Ventilation: Dilemma During and Post COVID-19 Era

To maintain a good quality of indoor air, dilution by outdoor air ventilation is one of measures in building management. And with the COVID-19 pandemic lately, the guidance for mitigating airborne virus spread has largely focused on maximizing outside air (OA) ventilation. Anyway, the huge energy toll (not to mention the carbon emissions impact) of this strategy has been highlighted. So we are in dilemma. On one hand, we want to ventilate to dilute pathogens to respond to COVID-19. But on the other hand, we can save money and save the earth if the OA can be reduced. How can we decide what’s the best course of action?

Until recently, in an under-reported change to its “Commercial Guide”, ASHRAE’s Epidemic Task Force acknowledged the energy penalty associated with increased OA ventilation, and offered an alternative approach that is the use of minimal OA ventilation as required by ASHRAE 62.1 combined with high-efficiency filtration. This can provide same effectiveness of reduction risk of indoor epidemic as outdoor air ventilation but lower extra CapEx and OpEx. Fortunately, there is also a scientific model called Wells-Riley model to find the best mitigation practically.

Keys to Making BIPV Happen Today in Super Low Energy Buildings: Case Study

Globally, over 50% of the population lives in urban areas today. By 2045, the world’s urban population will increase by 1.5 times to 6 billion. City leaders must move quickly to plan for growth and provide the basic services, infrastructure, and affordable housing to their expanding population needs. Therefore, the need to create energy efficient buildings and to adopt renewable energy has become all the more important. Building integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) is the latest technology that could contribute to the increased adoption of renewable energy at the building scale. A BIPV system mainly consists of a laminated safety glass with embedded solar cells integrated into the building envelope. BIPV could be integrated into the façade or the roof of the building envelope; also harvesting solar energy.

Reduce Energy Consumption of your HVAC Systems Using Smart Machine Learning AI based Chiller Plant Control and Optimisation Systems

Buildings consume almost a quarter of Worlds Energy Consumption and hence are one of the major sources of Emissions globally. In commercial buildings, HVAC is by far the most energy intensive system, accounting for close to half of the total energy consumption. For this reason every efficiency improvement in HVAC performance can significantly reduce the energy profile of the building, turning HVAC optimisation into a value generating opportunity.

Recent years, we have witnessed a growing interest in efficient HVAC control and optimisation, but due to its complex structure, rigorous optimisation proves to be challenging to many.

Created with an in-depth understanding of all thermodynamic variables involved in managing chiller plant room HVAC equipment, PlantPRO enables optimum control of every device and its integration into a single synergistic system. This session will outline an artificial intelligence-supported model predictive controller (AI-MPC) to optimise the energy consumption in a buildings . AI-MPC uses a high-level model to generate predictions of system load and resources to minimise operation costs. AI methods continuously learn and update the system models based on feedback from measurements and generates predictions and defines optimal trajectories for HVAC controls without compromising on occupant comfort. This intelligent self generating system is able to verify its own performance and is versatile enough so that it can provide the relevant details to everyone ranging from Property Management companies, Facility Managers, Energy Managers, HVAC Mechanical Contractors and Controls Technicians and Contractors.

Learn how to use artificial intelligence to Reduce Energy Consumption of your HVAC Systems Using Artificial Intelligence based Chiller Plant Control and Optimisation Systems from Chirayu Shah, Vice President of Operations at Conserve It.

The unsuspected capabilities of a BMS in 2021 and the misconception in Asia.

A new building management era is about to begin, with a strong momentum generated by 2 simultaneous movements:

  1. The building and its requirements are evolving at a pace like never before, with the COVID aftermath, the new working from home, the workspace wellness requirements, the fear of the virus, the energy saving requirements and so on…
  2. The new available technologies, with wireless multi sensors, cloud and IoT solutions as well as smart actuators and sensors…

Unfortunately, the real capabilities of a BMS are often misjudged. In this webinar, Nicolas will share with you the unsuspected capabilities of the most advanced BMS in the world.

Effectively, after 15 years of experience working for the Swiss BMS supplier SAUTER, on more than 200 projects all over the world, he always witnessed the same behavior, people are strongly underestimating the BMS capabilities. Often designs are mainly focused on plant rooms and the VAVs/FCUs are working on their own.

You will discover how a BMS can:

  • Interconnect and generate interactions between all elements in your building
  • Management the cold production when highly influenced by the demand
  • Also be a maintenance system
  • Provide smart workspaces
  • Use prediction and AI to save energy
  • Guarantee a good and virus free air quality, while saving energy

At last, you will find out how the IoT and cloud technology can make all of the above affordable.
