Published on

Presentation at GBCA Australia event as part one of the Leading Green Thinkers – Innovation Series. 27th March 2014.

Focused on 'Green Technology', part one of this inspiring series uncovers industry trends and emerging technologies affecting our buildings, cities and communities.

Australia's leading innovation specialists present a range of the latest platforms and tools, including smart buildings, digital cities, 3D printing and augmented reality.

This brief 10 minute presentation was one of four for the evening.
Smart Green Buildings – Sensing, learning and predicting sustainable outcomes.
• What is a Smart Building?
• What do we mean by smart?
• What are the technologies that go into a modern building that can support more sustainable outcomes?
