Keith La Rose, Director of Business Development at CopperTree, was delighted with the attendees at 2014 IBcon. According to Keith, “The people here really understand the space — and, they are the influential decision-makers.” The Delta Controls’ story is one of prolific success. Delta Controls, a privately held corporation, has been manufacturing BAS controls (all made in North America) for over 30 years, and is the world’s largest independent BAS manufacturer! The Delta Controls’ motto, which permeates throughout the organization is “Do it Right!” CopperTree Analytics, wholly owned by Delta Controls and ESC Automation, is an agnostic solution that works with anyone’s control system focusing on data analytics and building optimization.
2014 Realcomm/IBcon program went into overdrive on Day 1. The General Session featured Geoffrey Moore’s dynamic presentation on the Innovation Adoption Curve and its Relevance to Commercial and Corporate Real Estate, followed by the Shanghi Tower, soon to be the 2nd tallest and perhaps the smartest building in the world. Jim Young then moderated one of the most formidable gatherings of world-class BIoT titans ever assembled: Yardi, Cisco, Google, Intel, Microsoft, and Tridium, which previewed the forces that are going to change the building industry forever. Inside the Exhibit Hall, where over 100 Realcomm and IBcon display were in operation, ControlTrends met up with Yardi’s Scott Duncan, who brought us current with Yardi’s acquisition of Enerliance and the Power Opportunity Impact at the New York City Energy Summit, June 26, 2014 at the Waldorf Astoria.

Realcomm | IBcon is pleased to announce that Rob Watson, the “Father of LEED”, will join Dave Pogue of CBRE as Co-Chair of the Sustainability Executive Smart Building Symposium. Rob will add his extraordinary knowledge and experience from the last 30 years as a visionary in sustainability to the Smart Building Symposium.
Rob Watson is CEO and Chief Scientist of the ECON Group, which optimizes the economic and environmental performance of buildings over their lifecycle. An international leader in the green building movement and a Senior Scientist for the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), Watson is known as the “Founding Father of LEED.” Under Rob’s direction, LEED became the largest and fastest-growing international standard by which green buildings are measured. New York Times columnist and Pulitzer Prize author Thomas Friedman calls Rob “one of the best environmental minds in America.”
Rob is a former Director and Vice Chairman of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). Among numerous international awards for his work, he is the 2013 recipient of the International Conservation Award from the Botanical Research Institute of Texas. In 2011, he was a semi-finalist in the international Zayed Energy Future Award for Lifetime Achievement and was profiled on CNN International. Watson is the only foreigner honored for Green Building Innovation by the Chinese Ministry of Construction and received the first lifetime achievement award from the USGBC in 2002.
