GREENBUILD SESSION SPOTLIGHTS: THE OCCUPANT EXPERIENCE

A major theme of Greenbuild 2017 was the transition from an industry focus on energy efficiency to occupant experience. Automated building systems play a significant—and ever-growing—role in increasing health and comfort, but this emerging domain is far from perfect; there are still many questions to ask and problems to solve before automated buildings become the fix-all.

On our blog, Urban Green staff highlight several sessions that best tackled these challenges and introduce our upcoming event, Optimizing Operations in Automated Buildings, which will take a deeper look at the pitfalls and potential of automated building systems.
