  3. 3. 9:15 to 9:30Welcome and Introduction to the World Office ForumJorge Zanoletty, President World Office Forum, he has a degree in Business Administration from the University of Valencia(Spain). Among his previous occupations, he has been president of BNP Paribas Real Estate in Spain, managing director for Spain of Aareal BankAG and head of real estate advisory services for Ernst & Young. He was also president of the Spanish Corenet chapter and founder and firstpresident of the Spanish Associaton for Offices –AEO-. He has been a member of the European Advisory Board of Aareal Bank and of theEuropean Real Estate Steering Committee of Ernst & Young and head of real estate education outside the U.S. for that firm.The purpose of World Office Forum is o implement best practices and increase office related business. To achieve this, it focuses on theexchange of knowledge on a multi-skill basis and on strengthening business relationships between its members. Its approach is international,considering that many participants in office real estate are global occupiers, investors and service providers. World Office Forum is a projectorientated at the development and creation of value with the help of pro-active networking and local events; it is a catalyst on every level ofprofessional activity. WOF Green Office addresses the sustainable city and its office buildings, and the international relevance of a proactivepolicy in this context. Regulations and new laws and sustainable architecture are discussed and relevant examples shown. Energy certification,building monitoring and the latest innovations to achieve better energy efficiency are permanent topics for discussion within the organization. 2
  4. 4. 9:30 to 10:00What are companies in Barcelona CBD saying about their workspace? - Office market consultants consider that the owners of buildings in the CBD of Barcelona must choose between "renovation, renegotiation or suffering”. Most renegotiate rents. Some opt for the renovation, as the Agrupació Mútua building in Passeig de Gràcia 30. Others are seeing businesses going away in search of lower rents in more efficient buildings. The result: a vacancy rate that is now at 12% and going up (from Expansión newspaper, June 12th 2011). Aitek has questioned 1.105 users in Barcelona about their opinion. The result is more than interesting.Carlos Aizpún holds a Bachelor of Architecture in Wentworth Institute of Technology – Boston, USA. He founded AITEK Arquitectura eIngeniería in 2009 of which is managing partner. Before that he worked for twelve as managing director and partner in charge of thearchitecture office of Aguirre Newman in Barcelona, which he founded. He was also partner of GCA Arquitectes Associats. In his fifteen yearsprofessional career he has been involved in more than 350 projects totaling more than 300.000 m2 with a total budget of some € 75 million. 3
  5. 5. 10:00 to 10:45Roundtable: Trends and future of green buildings investment. How is Barcelona reacting? - The roundtable will discuss the international significance that has a city position in the leadership of sustainable offices, given that global investors and many users begin to demand art buildings in terms of sustainability, while they are still a tiny proportion of the park. How should promoters and investors approach this question, how to modernize the existing buildings, and how the city should support this trend with additional measures on issues such as urban transport. How are investors reacting to this trend and what can we expect in the future as investment demand appears to grow faster than the delivery of new buildings or renovation of the existing ones.Eusebi Carles, Savills.Other member of the roundtable TBA 4
  6. 6. 11:30 to 12:15Breeam In-Use and Torre Agbar Case Study - BREEAM In-Use is a scheme to help building managers reduce the running costs and improve the environmental performance of existing buildings. It consists of a standard, easy-to-use assessment methodology and an independent certification process that provides a clear and credible route map to improving sustainability. Parts 1 and 2 of the BREEAM In-Use Certification Scheme are relevant to all non-domestic: commercial, industrial, retail and institutional buildings. Part 3 of the BREEAM In-Use certification scheme is currently restricted to offices. The biggest opportunity to address the environmental impact lies in better management and improvement of the existing building stock. BREEAM In-Use has been developed to recognise and encourage better building management and targeted investment in existing building stock. The environmental performance of an organisation’s built assets is a key factor in its sustainability credentials and carbon footprint. Operating a building also represents a major cost – with soaring energy prices and an uncertain economic outlook, cutting energy, water, waste and other such costs can be a relatively easy way of improving profitability.Felipe-Neri Gordi is an architect from the School of Architecture of Barcelona, UPC. He is currently Director of Facility Management Services forAquagest, which manages the buildings of the Agbar Corporation, based in the Torre Agbar in Barcelona. Part of the panel of experts in theSchool of Facility Management of Sert, attached to the Official College of Architects of Catalonia (COAC).He is a member of the management ofthe knowledge center of the Asociación Española de Mantenimiento (AEM) and from June 2011 is part of its board.

  7. 7. 12:15 to 13:00Smarter Cities and the IBM Approach to Smarter Buildings - Buildings consume 42% of all electricity — more than any other type of physical asset. They generate 15% of all green-house gas emissions. In the United States, the numbers are even greater: buildings guzzle 72% of all energy, and produce 38% of green-house gas emissions. Smarter Buildings integrate major building systems onto a common network. Information and functionality between systems is shared to improve energy efficiency, to improve the effectiveness of facilities operations, to optimize space utilization, and occupant satisfaction. So how does an IBM Smart Building strategy work with existing operations?Juan Francisco Galán works in Industrial Solution in the area of Smarter Cities of IBM.

  8. 8. 13:00 to 13:30The Energy Vector in Office Buildings. Reality and Challenge - Office buildings are responsible for high energy consumption, with ten times higher intensity than housing. In a context of prolonged crisis and forecasts of continued increase of energy costs, the inclusion of the energy vector in the business model materializes as both a challenge and an opportunity.Jordi Pascual has a Degree in Physics from the University of Barcelona and DEA in Engineering from the Polytechnic University of Catalonia. Hehas focused his professional experience of the last fifteen years in the overall energy consulting and analysis of the construction sector inparticular.

  9. 9. 13:30 to 14:00Office Buildings HVAC/R Optimization - Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration -HVAC/R- is a necessity today for personal comfort, medical health, food preservation, water supply and work productivity. In fact, all human activities rely on HVAC/R in one way or another. There is a continual need to upgrade existing systems for greater cost and environmental efficiency. Office buildings rely on complex HVAC/R systems to create and maintain safe, healthy and comfortable living and working environments. Experts who contribute to making equipment work better, more efficiently, quicker, and less expensively are increasingly required to make systems more efficient both for client satisfaction and for energy efficiency. How can this be best achieved in existing buildings.Josep Túnica is a Technical Industrial Engineer by the Universidad Politécnica de Cataluña, 1991.
