Driving Efficiencies in the Built Environment:
Smart Meters for Building

Dr. Teghpal Sandhu noticed a need in the building industry for pure data in building utility systems and has since made it his mission to fill that need. As Founder & CEO of Live Building Systems, Dr. Sandhu created a real-time energy monitoring system that delivers consumption data directly to all those involved in the building— including building staff, owners, stakeholders, and tenants. His software translates data and information into a palatable language that any layperson can understand.

Join Talisen Construction CEO Joseph Rigazio and Dr. Teghpal Sandhu of Live Building Systems as they take a deep dive into the importance of building system analysis and data monitoring—as well as the value these systems add for owners, tenants, and the overall emissions reduction movement in NYC. You’ll learn how smart meters are driving sustainability in the built environment, and what this means for those involved in both constructing and using more energy efficient buildings.

Understanding the Role of the Owner in Successful Healthcare Projects

The competitive nature of the healthcare industry means there’s intense pressure to achieve the fastest possible speed to market. Preventing construction delays needs to be a top priority – which makes integrated project delivery an attractive delivery option.

In this episode of Talisen Talk, CEO Joseph Rigazio and Business Unit Director Christopher Norris discuss the role owners have in successful integrated project delivery, particularly when found conditions have the potential to put a build significantly behind schedule. Useful information for all healthcare project stakeholders, including owners, developers, architects, builders, and trade professionals.

Podcast Premiere Episode:
Health Care Construction
& Speed to Market

Speed to market is highly desirable in the competitive health care industry – but what does it take to get a complicated project like a hospital or treatment facility done on time and within budget? Al Thompson of TPG Architecture and Talisen Construction Corps’ Joseph Rigazio share their front-line perspective on why bringing designers, contractors, clients, and end users together early in the process streamlines product delivery.

You’ll learn why it’s important to bring end users into the process as early as possible, as well as the positive impact subcontractors can have on materials selection. Also discussed – the effort toward error-free projects, BIM adoption rates, and how choosing collaborative over adversarial working relationships delivers best results for everyone.
