Why Smart Buildings?, Seattle, WA.

The Edge building in Amsterdam is elected to be one of the smartest and greenest buildings in the world. “From the minute you wake up, you’re connected. The app checks your schedule and…finds you a desk. Because at The Edge, you don’t have one. No one does.” That is just the beginning of the amazing and sophisticated technology you can find at The Edge, where Erik Ubels, Chief Technology Officer at OVG Real Estate and former CIO for Deloitte, was responsible for the development of this quintessential model of a smart building. Join us at the Smart Buildings Center as we welcome Erik Ubels to our inaugural Executive Forum “Why Smart Buildings?”. Erik will share his experience in the development of The Edge and how the IoT infrastructure within the building empowers a more productive workforce.
