Smart Buildings, Tech Portfolio Management- Oh My! Checking in From RealComm 2012
We’ve been at RealComm 2012 in Las Vegas for the past two days. The tradeshow, hosted at the Las Vegas Hotel &Casino, connects real estate with technology, a mission shared equally by OfficeSpace.com. RealComm partnered with IBCom, focusing on intelligent building.
OfficeSpace.com had a booth where we met with professionals from Deloitte, Qube, Property Capsule, Sky Foundry and NOI Strategies amongst others.
Here were some of our favorite tidbits:
- Speaker Robert LiMandri of the New York City Buildings Department spoke at “975,000 NYC Buildings – Embracing Innovation and Setting Global Benchmarks.” LiMandri spoke on the less traditional methods of finding office space. He highlighted “The Development Hub,” a state-of-the-art facility that uses electronic submission of digital construction plans, virtual plan reviews and inter-agency collaboration. LiMandri also spoke of the opportunities for searching for buildings by environmental friendliness including LEED certification.
- Annual Digi Awards: This year’s Digi Awards included JLL, CBRE, Microsoft and the City of New York, but most intriguing were the individual awards given to Don Goldstein of CBC and Tama Huang of NOI Strategies. Huang was named one of RealComm’s Top 35 People to Watch in 2011 previously and has delivered. We look forward to watching the careers of these winners.
- RealComm Live: RealComm hosted a video series interviewing heads of companies from Sky Foundry, Property Capsule and OfficeSpace.com’s very own, Susie Algard. Algard went through a web demo of what we do at OfficeSpace.com and announced our Denver launch today at the event.
Commercial real estate sure seems to have come along way from its technology dinosaurs reputation and OfficeSpace.com plans to be there every step of the way. Between online listings, construction management technology and cloud-based technology portfolio management, what’s next for CRE technology?
