About the event

The Coalition for Smarter Buildings ( is a 501c3 non-profit organization of people that are passionate about promoting widespread adoption of interoperable smart systems in commercial buildings worldwide. We believe that smarter buildings are imperative to meeting many goals, including taking care of our local and global environment, driving higher value and more efficient operations, and delivering transformational occupant experiences. We invite all who share this vision to contribute their enthusiasm, energy, and experience.

During our presentation on June 1st we will give a brief update on several of the Coalition’s efforts around collecting and promoting best practices as well as a review of the technical framework and architecture that is at the core of our vision for the future.

Agenda Outline:

  • Introductions
  • Mission of The Coalition for Smarter Buildings
  • Re-introduction to The Smarter Stack
  • Overview of C4SB Focus areas and committee work
  • Brief review of how Cloud Native Computing is shaping our future.

These three areas of focus will be discussed as examples of the committee work that is in process:

DIV 25.25: A framework (named to fit within the CSI numbering system used to bid construction projects) that helps owners and operators define what they want their smarter buildings to do, and for vendors to develop and articulate how their solution(s) are interoperable and help deliver what owners, operators, and occupants want. The framework introduces the Smarter Stack, a layered technology architecture that enables open interoperation among building systems, the creation of powerful multi-system apps, and delivery of results that are not possible in a world of siloed systems.

Interoperable Building Box (IBB): The IBB team is defining the performance requirements for an on-premises “box” (a containerized computing environment) that can host the management of multiplebuilding systems, connect them to each other and the Internet, and centrally manage the systems’ IT and cybersecurity. By adapting existing IT hardware, software, and cutting edge practices to the built environment, deploying solutions following the IBB model can enable smarter solutions in more efficient and capable ways.

Young Professionals for Smarter Buildings (YP4SB): YP4SB is a group of young people bringing their energy and skills to help smarter buildings make a difference in our world. The group defines their own goals and taps in and contributes to the experience and efforts of the broader Coalition community, and plays a key role in voicing the perspectives and creating the space for the next generation of leaders in our industry.

Panelist Bios

Anto Budiardjo

Founder and CEO,

Anto is a veteran in the connected building space. Since 1989, he has led the development and promotion of building connectivity and integration technologies. His first product, the CdC Engine, first installed in 1991, was deployed widely in the UK and Europe through integrators and OEMs. The “Engine” was the first PC-based integration platform and graphical UI for buildings. Today, Anto is focused on a new venture to bring system integration into the Internet era with an online integration and collaboration platform Core to the current work is the advocacy of CNS/CP (Connection Profiles), an integration mechanism created by Padi, and now being adopted as an open mechanism by Digital Twin communities including the Digital Twin Consortium, as a key integration tool.

Rick Justis

Managing Director and Founder of Coalition for Smarter Buildings

Rick has spent the last several decades working with companies and organizations that have the potential to transform the built environment and drive broader adoption of technologies that can deliver positive change.  The variety of experience gained while working for companies like Apple, Dell, Johnson Controls, Honeywell and a long list of Start-Up’s in the Prop-Tech market has given him the ability to be relatively comfortable with conversations from board rooms to boiler rooms and he knows his way around Silicon Valley and Washington DC almost as well as his adopted home town of Kansas City, Missouri.

Peter Scanlon

Co-Founder & CEO. Verdicity

Builder of buildings, companies, markets, and movements. Growing up in his family's hardware stores, Pete learned early how to build stuff and create value that benefits multiple audiences all at once.  He has built buildings and programs for owners of commercial, government, and education portfolios, built companies from start-ups to multinational market leaders, and built new markets and movements that have helped shape the new economy.  Pete graduated from Harvard in economics and has held leadership positions at Greentown Labs, Accruent, Aquent, three start-ups, the national service corps City Year and presidential, senate, and congressional campaigns.
