AIRAH Big Data and Analytics Forum 6 August 2020

August 3, 2020

Following the success of the inaugural 2019 Big Data and Analytics Forum, AIRAH has announced the 2020 virtual event taking place on August 6, 2020.

The event brings together leading experts in how big data and analytics can be used to proactively control and optimise building HVAC&R systems. 

Joining this year’s line-up is
Carl Agar from A.G. Coombs Advisory to provide insights into the Virtual Buildings Information System. 

Connecting disparate data systems to achieve built outcomes

The Virtual Buildings Information System (VBIS) helps link and operationalise disparate asset data stored in building applications and systems. This benefits response times, facilitates accurate information, drives operational efficiencies and enhances planning. Its development has been funded by government, is aligned to government digitisation programs, and is based on an open syntax standard that will be freely available to the market.

The Virtual Buildings Information System (VBIS) provides a standard syntax to permit generic and reliable links to be created between applications and data repositories, combined with a standard convention for asset record labelling, or tagging, and a logical creation of a consistent data hierarchy.

This straightforward system makes possible the calling up of useful information from a range of applications including Building Information Models and FM systems to link to associated data sets seamlessly, regardless of the stage of the building lifecycle.

This presentation will describe the progress made in development over the last year and go through a case study of a deployment that was completed at a landmark facility in Australia.
