Think of a city as a network with each building as a server. If each building has data (BIM for design/construction and Smart Building data in the form of Facility Management/Building Automation) then when connected to the City Network, interesting things begin to happen ... 

Your firm's data becomes the digital DNA of Smart Cities – and when you consider the uncanny timing and convergence of market conditions, technology innovation, social wants and government needs, a Smart Cities market is emerging on a global scale.

This puts a high value on data usually associated with BIM and Smart Buildings. 

Join Paul Doherty to examine how smart buildings are emerging as a connected Internet of Buildings, leading to urban environments becoming Smart Cities. You'll learn how leading A/E firms are increasingly using technology as the basis of physical world design while capitalizing on the management of the Smart Cities digital world.


  • Identify key data points and the value of Smart Building data into Smart City data
  • Learn how engineering firm's are leveraging their data as a digital asset
  • Understand the terms Big Data, Smart Building and Smart Cities
  • Learn how A/E firms are creating value out of their existing data into new revenue streams
