Web seminar details assessing smart buildings

Feb. 7, 2022
February 23 session explains how SPIRE considers criteria for sustainability, power, energy, health and well-being.

On Wednesday, February 23, smart building practitioners will have the opportunity to learn about the assessment process for properties when the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) hosts a web seminar addressing aspects of its SPIRE program. “Assessing Smart Buildings with SPIRE, Part 2—Criteria for Sustainability, Power & Energy, Health & Well-being” will be broadcast live at 11:00am EST on February 23.

Sustainability, power and energy, and health and well-being are three of the six categories in the TIA’s SPIRE smart building assessment program. This seminar is a follow-up to an earlier TIA-hosted seminar that discussed SPIRE’s three other criteria: connectivity, cybersecurity, and life and property safety.

Smart Buildings Technology’s chief editor Patrick McLaughlin will moderate the February 23 seminar, which will include a panel of industry experts discussing how building owners and managers are measuring and improving operational performance, and how a comprehensive smart building assessment program like SPIRE can help guide investment strategies that align building operations with business outcomes.

“With competing priorities like protecting occupants in a pandemic and improving a building’s carbon footprint, ownership teams can now leverage a single holistic assessment to gain a deeper understanding of a building’s functional performance and identify new opportunities to lower risk and enhance asset value through calculated technology investments,” the TIA said in a promotion of the seminar.

Panelists are Brian Brustad of AECOM, Gayla Arrindell of Corning, Michael Moran of Microshare, and Annick Villeneuve of Schneider Electric.
