Total Facilities 2019 to explore 'Environments of Excellence'
Total Facilities 2019 will bring together facility management professionals and businesses to explore the topic ‘Environments of Excellence’. Over two days, the event will focus on energy efficiency, smart design and the future of work, looking at the latest ways the built environment can help facilities realise their full potential.
A number of speakers will share how the use of technology and data is transforming the way buildings are built and operated to create a future of smart, connected buildings that use insights to enhance their environments.
A keynote by workplace expert Libby Sander entitled ‘Future of Work — Are we there yet?’ will look at leading-edge practices and discuss trends in smart devices in the workplace, the impact of AI and data monitoring on the workplace, the impact of design in changing patterns of work and the effects of contingent work in the sharing economy.
Other industry experts in the Speaker Series program include: Catherine Caruana McManus, Director at Meshed IoT; Tony Arnel, Global Director Sustainability at NDY; Tica Hessing, Human Geographer & Tenant Advisor at Cushman & Wakefield; and Professor Stuart White, Director Institute of Sustainable Futures at University of Technology Sydney.
The Smart Zone also returns in 2019, which presents new technologies and solutions for smarter, greener buildings. The solutions will cover a range of areas, including big data analytics, IoT technologies, energy management, building automation, smart lighting and smart surveillance. It will provide attendees with insights into how to use technology and data to understand and improve building performance.
Finally, the Energy Efficiency Hub is a new zone this year — it aims to address the issue of energy consumption to heat, cool and run buildings. It will showcase HVAC solutions to help FMs get the most out of their building environment.
“The built environment in which we live and work has a significant impact on our efficiency, productivity and sustainability,” said Total Facilities Event Manager Andrew Lawson. “In order to develop the smart buildings of the future, FM professionals need to stay ahead of the latest insights, trends and innovations. Total Facilities 2019 provides the best opportunity for like-minded professionals to discover and discuss important industry issues and the latest solutions.”
