An evidence based future for buildings: Hoare Lea's Living Lab

We would like to discuss technology's potential to radically change the very deepest foundations of the built environment industry. To start, we will discuss how traditional approaches to the built environment can add complexity and data inconsistency, raise construction costs, reduce as-designed operational performance and limit transparency for stakeholders. The integration of traditionally embedded operational data, with emerging IoT data sets is unearthing operational meta-data models. These provide previously unimaginable data lakes from which to source insight into a building and its occupants. In parallel, an advances in data availability, processing power, and artificial intelligence, are facilitating the churning of meta-data into valuable operational knowledge. In recognition of these trends, HOARE LEA has established its London Office, in the Western Transit Shed (WTS) building at Kings Cross, as a Living Laboratory. The aim of the WTS Living Lab project is to enable the trialling of sensing systems, and crucially their output, associated with electrical efficiency, occupant actions and reactions. It is also being used as a test-bed for the aggregation of all data into a single portal, with the aim of unrestricted access to the data for the purpose of data analytics and the development of optimisation strategies.
