Virtual Reality & Gamification for Building Occupant Training

Heather DeGrella, Opsis Architecture
David Bynum, Bynum Labs

October 2018

In our second BuildingGreen Peer Networks Webinar, Heather DeGrella of Opsis Architecture and David Bynum of Bynum Labs shared their research on how augmented virtual reality and gamification tools can teach building occupants how to operate passive systems efficiently. They created a pre-occupancy training tool called HEATWAVE in which the objective of the game is to work smarter, not harder, and cool the room using as little energy as possible by fully utilizing the passive systems at your disposal.

Learn why this technology and process of pre-occupancy training has the potential to create a new generation of building users that understand and can utilize the passive systems and manage their spaces more efficiently. Heather also offers a sneak peek into her current research on reinventing the building dashboard by bringing it into the realm of Augmented Reality.
