ESD Studio Leaders Craig Kos (Healthcare) and Erik Nelson (Technology) will be joining a panel of industry experts at an upcoming Chicago event sponsored by The Association of Medical Facility Professionals (AMFP). It is part of AMFP’s mission “To be the hub where healthcare-built environment leaders share ideas, gain knowledge, solve challenges, connect with peers, and shape the future of the industry.” (Learn more about the AMFP event.)
Getting the most out of buildings—cost, speed to market, sustainability, user experience, wellness, and more—is the focus of “The Buildings Conference 2023” sponsored by BuiltWorlds. ESD President Kurt Karnatz joins a panel of professional peers as part of the two-day event starting May 18 in Chicago.
Karnatz will be discussing “Building IoT – The Challenges and Opportunities of Building Operations Tech” on the second day of the conference. The panel will be discussing advancements in Internet of Thins (IoT) and other developments in building operations technology over the past five to 10 years.
According to Karnatz, the group will examine what the driving forces were for these technological advances in the past versus today while answering the question: “Are they just the flavor of the day, or are these technologies and trends here to stay?”
Registration for the May 17 – 18 conference is open. Event organizers say the keynote address will focus on new developments for future cities while subsequent sessions will include “How the Drive for Energy Positive/Carbon Negative is Changing our Buildings,” “How Sustainability/ESG Priorities are Changing the Way we Design & Build,” “Facilities Management & Maintenance Tech,” and much more.
Kurt Karnatz has been leading the company as a world-recognized building systems and technologies consulting practice for over 30 years, and freely shares his knowledge at events such as this to further ESD’s mission to improve society through the built environment.
