BTL Mark: Resolve interoperability issues & increase buyer confidence
|The C4SB Coalition Activity Update
Anto Budiardjo, CEO Padi, Inc.
The Coalition for Smarter Buildings (c4sb.org) continues to make progress in a number of proactive ways as members continue to pursue the coalition’s Five Pillars of Action (Interoperability, Analytics, Specifications, Financial Models, and Workforce).
Working in partnership with Monday Live! and BIG, March 2022 saw the start of a Div 2525 collaboration project, now meeting weekly to develop specification language that would help consulting engineers, building owners, as well as contractors working on buildings to specify and engineer smarter buildings of all sizes and types. The focus of the group is on ensuring that building systems can interoperate with each other in a seamless manner. The group believes strongly that system interoperation is critical not only to ensure that any new installations are done as efficiently as possible but also to enable the building to accommodate future needs not anticipated in the construction or refurb of the project. Enabling systems to interoperate during the operation phase is critical for continuous improvement of building systems as well as other desired outcomes such as ESG reporting, indoor air quality, and productivity of occupants. The group is currently working on a document that should be available publicly in the next month or two.
Separately, the Coalition was invited to present at a Clean Energy Economy Panel at the recent meeting of the Democratic Leitenant Governors Association (DLGA) in Washington DC. Coalition member Jim Lee from Cimetrics was part of the panel and presented to the gathered LGs the coalition’s mission to make buildings smarter. Jim’s comments were very well received, and several follow-up meetings are now being arranged in a number of states interested in pursuing collaboration with C4SB.
