The Data-Driven Built Environment

Wednesday, May 30, 2012

Today, the real estate industry is turning to metrics to validate and evaluate buildings and reasons for this trend are wide-ranging. They range from needs to adhere to new regulations and desires to improve building performance through modeling, measurement, and benchmarking, and aspirations to revolutionize building design and engineering to take into account occupants behavior and to maximize their satisfaction.

These objectives stem from recognition by the industry that embracing sustainability will have favorable impacts on efforts to reduce GHG emissions and energy consumption, increase environmental health and safety for building occupants, while positively affecting the financial bottom-line.

Although consensus is that metrics are the future of buildings, currently, every segment of the industry looks at the issue from its own silo and generates reams of sector-specific data. Without the proper tools, standards, and analytics the resulting data tsunami could breed frustration and resistance to the market transformation opportunities created by the data's availability.

What would be beneficial is a comprehensive view that identifies what each sector needs — operators, owners, regulators, bankers, underwriters, and tenants — in order to leverage all of these needs to move the industry forward, systematically.

In order to begin to address this, the New York Academy of Sciences is hosting this conference on the utilization of data in the Built Environment. We are eager to develop and mainstream the Green Building 'discipline' and integrate it into relevant subject areas such as data analytics and machine learning. As a first step, we aim to present a vision for what data we should be collecting in order to transform the industry.

Sponsors: The New York Academy of Sciences Green Buildings Discussion Group; United Technologies; HOK; NRDC & Linnean Solutions

Date: Wednesday, May 30th, 8:00 am–6:00 pm

Location: The New York Academy of Sciences, 7 WTC, 250 Greenwich Street, 40th Floor
