A Smart building requires a high level of technology deployed within its base building infrastructure and throughout the tenancy space. The challenge is how to budget, select and deploy the tech considering the timeline of a typical project vs the changes in technology. In this session we ask industry experts how they are looking to disrupt the traditional construction methods to align with the technology industry.

Wednesday 9th May – 10:30 – 11:30
