Keynote: The Growing Need for Smart Buildings in Canada
Speaker: Akira Jones, digital services director and mechanical engineer, HH Angus
Understanding the intersection of technology and the built environment to deliver better business outcomes and performance will be instrumental for engineers, architects, contractors, integrators and other professionals in the AEC industry to be successful. It presents a fantastic opportunity for owners to leverage technology to modernize their buildings and assets. By addressing occupants’ well-being, energy and greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions and decarbonization targets, the AEC industry can bring existing buildings into the future.
Akira has well over a decade of experience in the architectural, engineering and construction (AEC) industry. He leads HH Angus’ digital services team, which specializes in BIM processes and software, 3-D scanning and Scan-to-BIM, the Internet of Things (IoT), digital twinning and Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud consulting. In his spare time, he enjoys ultimate frisbee, cycling and getting lost in the woods while back-country camping.
