    Panel Discussion: Accelerating the business case for smart building ratings and certification

    By Dr Lina Engelen Ambassador, Fitwel & Founder, Active Spaces

    Smart technologies have been around for a while, but without a clear ROI the case for adoption is weak. This session will explore the key criteria which drive financial approvals and the business case for smart technology ratings and certification from the perspective of the Landlord and Tenants. What are the critical accelerators and barriers which need to be navigated to gain support for the investment in technology enabled buildings and their ratings?

    • Establishing which standard to use for which building and why?
    • How to establish an integrated smart building ratings scheme that covers:
      • Must do
      • Nice to have
      • Luxury/gold standard
    • Defining, measuring, and standardising the smart building – Standards, Tools & Frameworks
    • Examining how the current ratings systems have increased the value of the buildings they rate
    • Do these ratings systems help or hinder the industry?
    Panellists include:
    Jorge Chapa Head of Market Transformation, Green Building Council of Australia
    Jack Noonan Vice President, Asia Pacific, International WELL Building Institute
    Esther Bailey Head of Market Development, National Australian Built Environment Rating System (NABERS)
    Eden Dwek Director of Expansion, WiredScore (UK)
