Buildings are fundamentally about technology. Innovation in the building sector is driving improvements in performance and enhancements to the user experience.
We are hosting the 2016 Building Tech Forum at Greentown Labs in Somerville, MA (adjacent to Boston) on the evening of April 21st, from 5:30 – 8:30.
Please review our colorful brochure to distribute to your colleagues here.
Building tech is the intersection of the innovation economy and real estate. The green building industry is right here in the middle of it – creating new ways to increase the value of real estate and improve the sustainability of our building stock and our communities in general. Buildings are responsible for 30% of greenhouse gases globally, and approximately 40% in the US. Recently, at the COP21 negotiations, the UN convened a “Buildings Day” to explore the ways the real estate sector can support improved environmental performance through better buildings. USGBC is committed to the creation of 5 billion square feet of certified green buildings in the next five years: this will require deployment of technology on a massive scale. The results will be better buildings, healthier occupants, more vibrant communities and a thriving industry connecting technology to real estate. We at the Massachusetts Chapter are here to champion that effort in our Commonwealth and we need to bring all the parties together. You can read more about the ambitions of global leaders and recent agreements here. It is an exciting time to be a part of the high performance segment of the building industry!
Join us for the Building Tech Forum to connect on the local level to these important trends for sustainability in real estate.
We want you to come to our networking event to bring together practitioners in the green building sector – owners, builders, designers and operators – with innovators on the cutting edge of technological innovation.
Let's bring together the users and the providers who are are delivering the next solutions to the challenges of building design and facility management.
