CABA's Intelligent & Integrated Buildings Council

  Ken Sinclair, Editor

Are you aware of CABA's Intelligent & Integrated Buildings Council and it's six Task Forces?

Task Force 1: Intelligent Building Ranking System
Task Force 2: Middleware
Task Force 3: Life Cycle Costs Analysis Tool
Task Force 4: Best-Practices Guide for Intelligent Building Technologies
Task Force 5: Demo Project - High Performance Building
Task Force 6: FIATECH - Capital Projects Technology Roadmap

How can I get involved?

Both Task Force 1 and Task Force 3 have come to a point that we require funding. We are pursuing government and industry funding sources but, as you are probably aware, funding is scarce everywhere. We need your assistance in identifying potential funding sources, potentially including your own company. At this point, we don't expect that any one organization will be providing large funding amounts - instead, we will be pursuing smaller amounts from multiple sources. Please feel free to contact me with any questions. I would be more than happy to tailor "funding proposals" to meet the specific requirements of any potential funding source or to direct the funding to a specific Task Force.
