Automation And Controls: Key Opportunities And Technologies

The implementation of automation technology is becoming a trend in Australia with high levels of investment being channeled into these projects, especially in the commercial sphere. However with the fast pace of technology, it is hard to remain informed on new innovations and what does and does not work.

In this workshop, Caimin provided a consultant’s perspective on the wide range of technologies and approaches currently in use: 

  • Introduction to the latest technologies and solutions being adopted, as well as some of the ‘older’ approaches that still have their place
  • Methods being used to improve the environmental, operational and indoor environmental quality of existing and new buildings
  • Process for identifying the key opportunities and paybacks
  • Developing the business case and showing ROI
  • How to benchmark your building against your competitors
  • Case study examples, technical material overviews and design approach
