Building Smart with IoT 

Construction | Smart Cities | Energy Webinar


Digital Transformation is changing everything, including the way we build. When it comes to planning and designing new buildings and cities, incorporating advanced technologies to ensure energy efficiency and long term sustainability is becoming a necessity. Whether building a smart city from scratch or rehabbing existing structures with connected solutions, data-centric innovation is being placed top of mind. As developers and construction teams lay the framework for new buildings and infrastructure, connectivity and data collection will be as important as blueprints and safety. Researchers and Technology evangelists expect building and infrastructure data to be of significant value, giving us greater control of our digital future.

But what potential risks does biting the digital apple of Industry 4.0 create for construction professionals that have always completed projects without the use of advanced technologies? Construction crews and foremen will be pushed to become familiar with IoT, digital twins, and data-management processes that are synonymous with digital transformation. Those that continue to complete their services in the traditional way, will be at a significant disadvantage to those who choose to pursue initiatives around IoT and other cutting edge technologies.


Why it is imperative to consider energy efficiency and sustainability when building new smart buildings and infrastructure

Challenges surrounding existing buildings and traditional building processes that can be mitigated with connected solutions

Technology advancements for construction applications such as digital twins, automation and VR

Considerations for smart cities such as data ownership and security

"Being a speaker on a couple of the Industry Insights Webinars was a wonderful experience. They knew how to make me feel at ease and provided ample opportunity to ensure I was prepared for my part in the program. Considering the care with which the entire staff approached every aspect of the event, you'd think they were producing a full-fledged network television program. These people are top-notch, and they produce consistently great material that is not only educational in nature, but also fun to watch and relevant to their audience. They obviously know their stuff, and they're always striving for excellence. I highly recommend the team at IOT Marketing; they're a class act!"

Erin Holloway , President

“To say that Tiffani Neilson is dedicated would be an understatement; to call her “professional” would not do her justice. I am convinced that any project Tiffani touches will have “excellence” and “success” written all over it. I’ve had the honor of speaking at a couple of events produced by Tiffani and her team, both of which came off flawlessly. She is wise beyond her years and rises far beyond expectations. Her ability to get the job done with a smile, combined with her grasp of the overall picture impressed me from the very beginning. The end result? Consistently high-quality, riveting programs that you don’t want to miss. Somehow, she manages to get it done with just the right combination of determination, grace, professionalism, and style, earning an 11 on a scale of one to ten in my opinion. Tiffani Neilson gets a wholehearted five-star recommendation from me.”
