Roy Arindam is BuildingIQ’s Vice President of Sales across Australia and New Zealand. Roy's big area of interest has been in the clean technology space especially in the energy efficiency and energy storage business. He has over 12 years of expertise in the intelligent buildings space. His first-hand experience with complex building technologies such as energy optimization technologies, building automation systems, integrated extra low voltage systems (IELVS), energy metering and reporting solutions, fire detection and fighting solutions, and security solutions, has allowed him to stay at the forefront of the Building industry. His overall experience with companies such as BuildingIQ, Alerton, Tyco and Siemens has allowed him to get experience within the construction/ retrofit sector as well as the existing buildings sector. Moreover, he has been involved in very strategic projects representing these above companies at Barangaroo, Central Park, Australian Technology Park, Major Hospitals & various other clients around the country. There is a lot of pride in his current role at the ASX listed BuildingIQ as this has been a Patented Australian Invention on the global map and is certainly changing the way energy is managed in buildings.
A key ingredient in creating an “integrated facility” is the human factor as it relates to comfort. While the concept of being able to optimize every environment at such a granular scale and meet the needs of every individual is still very much farfetched (at least for the foreseeable future), the idea of increasing human input to optimize an environment is not.
Hot and cold calls within a building provide after-the-fact input and by the time a change is implemented it is usually an overreaction that sacrifices the comfort of other tenants. By using IoT technologies, comfort can be optimized proactively. Data points can be collected throughout the span of a day and can vary from different locations within a building, essentially turning tenants or occupants into the ultimate building sensors. Feeding this data stream into advanced energy management platforms that can meld a comfort model to be paired with an operational model and the thermal model of a building creates endless possibilities for comfort and energy efficiency.
This session will share results from an institution using this strategy and highlight how IoT technologies have enabled a change in operations. The presenter will provide a behind-the-scenes look at how comfort data is being collected, modelled and implemented into actionable and preventive comfort recommendations to create more desirable facilities.
