The Roadmap will be a collaborative industry-funded research project designed to update CABA’s Technology Roadmap (TRM) for Intelligent Buildings, a research report released in 2002.

Organizations funding the Intelligent Buildings Roadmap include Ariane Controls, Cisco Systems, Direct Energy, ESC Automation/Delta Controls, Johnson Controls, HID Corporation, Honeywell International, Tridium, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratories, Legrand North America, Panduit Corp., Siemens Building Technologies, Trane, and InfoComm International.

“Through the roadmap process, companies in a given sector can pool their resources to determine what their specific market will require for growth,” states Ronald J. Zimmer, CABA President & CEO. “Our aim is to develop a solid portrait of the state of the integrated systems industry and a clear vision of where we are headed. As a result, we are extremely pleased that a number of world-class companies have come together to support this project.”

The goal of the Roadmap is to produce a report that explores and explains the current status and imminent opportunities offered by the accelerating evolution and usage of intelligent building technologies.

PlantPROCORE The Roadmap's sponsors will determine the specific research direction of the project through participation on a special steering committee. The report will be designed to allow various stakeholders from industry, governments, academic institutions and research organizations to identify resource requirements and potential investment opportunities.

CABA believes that its Intelligent Buildings Roadmap will be an important piece of industry research that will assist industry to move towards an even stronger marketplace. The association is well positioned to conduct this research on behalf of industry since it has no allegiance to specific technologies and has the ability to bring competing interests together in a joint effort.

CABA intends to conduct cursory industry research for the Intelligent Buildings Roadmap at its Intelligent Buildings Leadership Forum, to be held June 25-27, 2006 at the Dallas Convention Center in conjunction with Realcomm and BOMA International’s North American Commercial Real Estate Congress and The Office Building Show.
