Will Technology Save Us?! Smart Solutions & Future of Workplace

Wednesday, 10 June 2020 | Online Event

The incorporation of Smart Technology into the high-rise realm has the ability to bring real value to building occupants. As the world begins to consider going back to work with renewed concern over viral spread, smart solutions will inevitably play a significant part in the future of the work environment.

Identifying the best fit for a project can be a difficult path to navigate, especially given the urgent need to elevate occupant health standards. While a technology may be new and “shiny,” if it is not practical in the real-world environment based on anticipated behaviors, demonstrated needs, and ease-of-adoption it will underperform, and its potential value will remain unrealized for both occupants and owners.

CTBUH presents a virtual discussion among top experts sharing their perspective on the smart solutions they see consistently generating value and how they will help bring the workforce back to a safe and productive environment. Former CTBUH Chairman, David Malott, Founder & CEO, AI., will lead a panel discussion.

This event is the second in a series of digital events organized by CTBUH about adapting the urban realm to a post-pandemic world. Watch the recording of the first event here.
