About

Organizations are choosing to commit to an increasing number of climate and sustainability goals and policies. How can we plan new facilities and modernizations to meet the unknown needs of the future? See how two organizations are meeting this challenge. The first speaks to the lessons learned from a recently completed $1B “hospital of the future”. The second speaker addresses how her private University campus’ new Climate Action Plan has challenged her design teams to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. See how both facilities are leveraging their BAS systems to validate their ongoing performance against policy goals.
