During this afternoon session of two hours (1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m.) several experts will speak. On the one hand, they will ask and answer the relevant questions with which construction professionals are increasingly coming into contact. On the other hand, there will be room for a number of relevant case studies. This webinar is organised by the Smart Buildings in Use cluster of the WTCB, of which Freestone is also a member.

Jolien De Veirman

In addition to Facility Advisor at Freestone, Jolien De Veirman also chairs the IFMA IoT working group.

In her presentation, she will elaborate on how to identify, select and implement facility services and associated technology from a feasible and cost-saving perspective.
