www.caba.org Continental Automated Buildings Association CABA--Who We Are... CABA \’CA-BA\ noun (since 1988) Definition: 1. Continental Automated Buildings Association 2. Your Information Source for Home & Building Automation • Synonyms: See Competitive Intelligence, Cost Savings, Networking, Market and Technology Trends and Interoperability. • Mission Statement: To encourage the development, promotion, pursuit and understanding of integrated systems and automation in homes and buildings.
www.caba.org Continental Automated Buildings Association Intelligent & Integrated Buildings Council Mandate: Explore the opportunities and trends in large building automation and integrated systems How is this accomplished? -IIBCouncil Meetings -IIBConference -IIBCouncil Task Forces
www.caba.org Continental Automated Buildings Association Intelligent & Integrated Buildings Council • IIBConference • 100 industry delegates in 2002, Toronto, CANADA • High level speakers and case studies • Conference sessions including: Energy Management, Security, Standards/Middleware/Interoperability, Marketing the IB, Life Cycle Cost Benefits and Case Studies • www.caba.org/iibc
www.caba.org Continental Automated Buildings Association Intelligent & Integrated Buildings Council • IIBCouncil Task Forces • 1. Intelligent Building Ranking Criterion & Procedure • 2. Middleware • 3. The Life Cycle Costs of Intelligent & Integrated Buildings • 4. Best-Practices Guide for Selecting IBTs • 5. Demonstration Project
www.caba.org Continental Automated Buildings Association Technology Roadmap for Intelligent Buildings • Explores and explains the current status and imminent opportunities offered by accelerating the evolution and use of intelligent building technologies. The focus is on commercial, institutional and high-rise residential buildings, both new projects and retro-fits, in a five year horizon. • Defines Intelligent Buildings Technology (IBT) systems • Examines requirements of building managers and tenants • Identifies opportunities to reduce building operating costs using IBTs • Examines challenges to IBTs, including need for interoperability of sub-systems • Stresses need to quantify the benefits and increase awareness of IBTs through education
www.caba.org Continental Automated Buildings Association IB Definition Intelligent Building: One where technological buildings systems, communications and controls are integrated to create an infrastructure and a building that provides the owner, operator and occupant with an environment which is flexible, effective, comfortable and secure.

www.caba.org Continental Automated Buildings Association The Benefits • The ability to access a building independently and securely outside of normal working hours • Standardized infrastructure allows for simple upgrades and modification of systems • Higher building and rental value • Lower and/or controllable consumption costs • Greater occupant/tenant control over building systems • A single control point interfaces allows for easy modification of telephone, security, LAN, wireless devices, building directory, etc...
www.caba.org Continental Automated Buildings Association The Benefits--for the Stakeholders • Building Developers • Advanced functionality • Customize building spaces • Building Owners/Operators • Reduce operating and maintenance costs • Some building function can also be given to the occupant. • Greater operational flexibility and need for less staff
www.caba.org Continental Automated Buildings Association The Benefits--for the Stakeholders • Developer/Owners • Automation reduces the cost of operating staff • Added building functionality results in increased rents and building value • Equipment and System Manufacturers • Standards based products + interoperable systems= decreased costs and increase reliability. Therefore, a bigger pie is created
www.caba.org Continental Automated Buildings Association The Challenges • Financial impact • Higher up front costs versus lower operational costs • Need for an integrated design/build process (including architects, engineers, owners, developers, and contractors) • IBs must react to component and system failures more reliably • Education, experience and changed practices are needed throughout the supplier community • Competing technologies • Unclear standards
www.caba.org Continental Automated Buildings Association The Challenges--for the Stakeholders • Developers/Owners • New methods and techniques are needed • Challenge of accepting a higher financial risk/investment weighed against a higher financial return. • Need for education
www.caba.org Continental Automated Buildings Association The Challenges--for the Stakeholders • Occupant/Tenant • Must be made aware of the changes in building operation. Costs and savings must be managed. • Designers • Team committment • Construction Processes • Traditional construction process
www.caba.org Continental Automated Buildings Association The Challenges--for the Stakeholders • Building Codes • Current codes may be too restrictive to allow for the ideal installation • Move towards objective-based codes • Technology • Competing standards • Proprietary technologies • LACK OF INTEROPERABILITY!
www.caba.org Continental Automated Buildings Association Opportunities • Trends • Integration of communications providing an overall integration solution • Single control console that uses a single software • Phase out of separate control rooms • Shift from investment based on lowest initial cost to one based on highest value • Suppliers developing intelligent, self-diagnosing, fault-tolerant controllers
www.caba.org Continental Automated Buildings Association Market Drivers • Reduced costs • Greater ease of operation (operator and tenant) • Greater reliability Societal Impacts • Worker connectivity • IBTs are positioned to allow workers to access and control their work environments • “It’s common for technology to be introduced to reduce costs, while its greatest value turns out to be the added value capabilities it brings.”
www.caba.org Continental Automated Buildings Association Future Technology Impacts • Fibre optics • Biometrics • Terrorism • Multi-function sensors (temp., IAQ, light, occupancy) • Software and interfaces now allow users to control their workspace • Because technological solutions exist, tenants are starting to demand them
www.caba.org Continental Automated Buildings Association Conclusions (top 5) • There are currently many IBT products capable of automating and integrating all major building systems • BAS can reduce costs and increase productivity and comfort • Lack of properly assessable IBT reference projects • Significant shortage of trained, knowledgeable and certified professionals in the design, installation and integration of IBSystems • IBTs require the cooperation of the entire design team including the owner, developer, architect and engineers
www.caba.org Continental Automated Buildings Association Recommendations (top 6) • Increase awareness of IBTs and their positive impact on the investment • Document the savings through cost/benefit analyses • Reference examples • Demonstration projects • Education must be provided at all levels (includes architects, engineers, developers, owners and construction) • True interoperability must be pursued
www.caba.org Continental Automated Buildings Association Recommendations (top 6) • Warranty related • Ensure that individual systems interoperate • Building codes must realize that IBTs provide improved safety and functionality • Contractual recommendations • Contracts must contain non-exclusive service requirements and sharing of service facilities • Service agreements must ensure overall system reliability
www.caba.org Continental Automated Buildings Association Recommendations (top 6) • Adoption of a single communications infrastructure with an integrated design (Division 17) • Communications becomes a utility within building • Single contractor to install communications infrastructure • Certify communications infrastructure
www.caba.org Continental Automated Buildings Association CABA ONLINE24/7 INFORMATION SERVICE PROVIDES: • Instant access to searchable industry intelligence • Searchable CABA member database • Training and Networking opportunities • Conference Features/Upcoming Events • Access to recent industry presentations • Access to current Protocol/Standards information The Benefit: Efficient access to valuable industry information that will ensure the continued profitability of your company!
