Building Data Delivery

The new deliverable in our industry is data. Not that we are freed from providing our core deliverable of the best environmental control for the lowest possible energy use in a sustainable manner. It is just that we need to provide anywhere data to prove that we are achieving our original deliverable.  Whether you use Building as a noun or a verb it is now all about Building Data Delivery.

Our July issue is stuffed with many articles and interviews about how building data is being used and delivered. Much of the content has been fueled from the recent Realcomm/IBCon 2013 event and the Project-Haystack effort.

From Jack's report from IBCon; Big Building Data may not be a buzzword yet but a great deal of discussion took place around how Smart Connected Buildings produce a tremendous amount of data that can be used to improve operations. Whether that data is focused on energy, as discussed below, or operations, the challenge continues to be turning information into intelligence.  There were a number of examples of products designed to support that effort, and some that had even been developed by building owners themselves.

Steve Jones' article BAS Communities Need Bridges, Not Walls, provides and great introduction to the type of discussion we are hoping for at the Connected Communities Collaboration meeting at http://www.ahrexpo.com/.  Meeting is evolving online in a Linkedin Group.

Our four education programs for AHRExpo New York have just set theme - "Building Data the New Deliverable". As you can see we do not think this data thing is going to go away anytime soon.

So please take the time to review all these great articles, columns, reviews, new products, interviews and of course the steady stream of news about our rapidly evolving Building Data Delivery.
