|8:10-8:30||Session #1: Efficiency Manitoba
Colleen Kuruluk, CEO, Efficiency Manitoba
|8:30-9:10||Session #2: Successes, Challenges and Opportunities: Energy Smart Buildings
Kyle MacDonald, Executive Director, Facilities, University of Winnipeg
|The presentation will discuss how we were able to meet deep emission reduction goals using smart building technology in retrofit applications (the successes and challenges), and the opportunities of renewable energy sources in Manitoba, including some non-conventional ones such as Biomass, and how they complement others.|
|9:10-9:45||Session #3: The Future of Sustainable Facilities Service Delivery: Collaboration, Transparency & End User Integration
Erica Brabon, Director, Energy and Sustainability, Black & McDonald
|This presentation will discuss how collaboration between the facilities team, the healthcare/research team and other stakeholders leads to a more efficient systems and increased transparency in capital planning and operations. Integrating technology for monitoring and reporting lends new tools to these processes and increases end-user adoption. Creating these new feedback loops and approaches to service delivery sets an example for the future of sustainable facility management and the importance of communication.|

Trade Show opens 9:30
|10:30-11:00||Session #4: How Smart Buildings Can Increase Maintenance Ease and Energy Efficiency While Lowering Capital Cost Using Converging Networks
Colin McLachlan, C.E.T, RCDD, LEED AP BD+C, Partner, SMS Engineering Ltd.
Scott Hammond, PEng, LEED AP BD+C, Partner, SMS Engineering
Front line staff start 10:30
|All buildings are talking to us – are you listening?
Lighting talking to HVAC, maintenance talking to room booking, wheelchair or beds telling you exactly where they are. Technology now exists to allow your buildings to communicate across all systems. By converging your networks to communicate with each other while amassing the data for your own use, you can increase the positive impact facility management has on the CORE BUSINESS of providing quality healthcare to your patients.
Learn how small changes to your ongoing measurement and verification systems together by leveraging your data to work for you can optimize energy/carbon use while lowering your maintenance time and costs. Stay ahead of the facility management curve by incrementally implementing systems as they receive normal repairs or replacement to work together to meet your ultimate goals.

|13:30-14:25||Session 5: Virtual & Augmented Reality for Healthcare Facilities
Robert Manna, Associate, Stantec
|Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) are increasingly entering the lexicon of day to day life. The design industry has rapidly embraced reality technologies to more easily convey design intent, validate client/customer assumptions and improve construction, maintenance and operational outcomes. In this session we will cover the current state of the technology and the ease at which different approaches can be implemented, starting with simple VR as part of the facility design process, to virtual mock-ups, human operations validation and full augmented reality that allows the overlay of the digital with physical. We will feature sample work from healthcare and industries with similar needs and requirements.|
