SACC Dallas: Sustainable buildings - tomorrow's skyline
The necessity and demand for environmentally responsible buildings have changed the design, construction and operation of public spaces and offices and how we live. Cities are increasingly adopting carbon targets and requiring commercial building owners to disclose green building performance to tenants, buyers, and, in some cases, the public. Building owners are set to manage larger buildings remotely with third-party service companies and software to detect system failures and manage energy consumption, all by drawing on the cloud and using a phone. Meanwhile demand in the existing building market is increasing as energy-efficiency retrofits are becoming available. This panel will explore what shapes tomorrow’s skyline, from technology to market.
