Wireless Controls for Building

  • Thursday, November 12, 2020
  • 8:30 AM - 11:30 AM
  • SDGE Energy Innovation Center (4760 Clairemont Mesa Blvd, San Diego, CA 92117), WE&T Seminar


In this advanced class, learn strategies to manage risk from idea to implementation, including the latest in wireless building automation technology. The persistent push to build more sustainable and energy efficient buildings requires owners, design teams and contractors to step out of their comfort zone and adopt the new products and emerging technologies that will help them reach the project’s energy and sustainability goals. Frequently, a net-zero energy goal results in a combination of building technologies that have never been tested before. The inherent risks and rewards in attempting to build with new products and technologies are often not addressed until they result in delays or change orders. Even the most critical areas of a hospital can become green without any adverse risk.
