Being Smart About Variable Occupancy
Whether you are in Seattle, Austin, Boston, or Philadelphia the hybrid work environment is the new normal. While building occupancy rates vary by location – and certainly by day of the week – the challenge of efficiently lighting, heating, cooling, and ventilating space is increasingly complicated. Should a building with 45% occupancy consume the same resources as one that previously had an 80% occupancy rate? Should this rekindle the concept of EUI per occupant versus EUI per SF as a metric? This session will explore the complexities of variable occupancy rates and how smart technology and practices can help building owners and operators manage resources and consistently meet health and comfort standards of their occupants.
Making Existing Buildings Smarter
Smart technology is not limited to new construction. Existing buildings can deploy (or better utilize) smart tech/practices that optimize operations, improve indoor air quality, reduce carbon, and improve resiliency. Two to three case studies will be presented followed by additional SME panel participants in moderated discussion.
