Architects and designers will be able to indulge their tech-savvy side at the inaugural Smart Buildings show later on this year. Held between from 6–8 October, the show at Birmingham’s NEC, will offer a CPD hub, offering the architecture and design community the chance to further their professional knowledge in this area.
During the three days, the show aims to bridge the gap between what’s available in terms of technology within the building sector and how the various stakeholders can apply it successfully to projects they are working on. As Sam Cooper, director at E2 Architecture & Interiors, said, “Smart technology is becoming integral to our everyday work.”
Topics pertinent for architects at the show include lighting design and control and smart building technology. Other topics within the wider tech sector include the role of Big Data and challenges within wireless networking. As well as the CPD Hub providing a range of seminars and workshops, there will be the chance for the A&D sector to get down to the practical, nitty gritty side of things in the Installer Zone.
