Building UX and people. Smart- beyond tech, utilisation and optimisation


Buildings are still being built with functional system design, not an integrated experiential approach. This session will demonstrate techniques borrowed from the software industry and how they have been applied on a live design project to ensure joined up systems thinking and common vision to deliver a building that is not only efficient and well utilised but a joy to actually use too!

Who should attend this session? 

Property developers, investors, owner-occupiers, consultants, Smart product vendors.

What will delegates learn from this session? 

Answering questions:

- What is Building UX?
- Why should I establish a common project vision?
- How do I create a common project vision?

Why is this issue of interest to delegates? 

The session will move delegates from understanding the question 'what is a Smart building?' to 'I know *how* to create one'.
