The Building Intelligence Tour,a series of seminars on the benefits of intelligent buildings, was launched with the seminar "Introduction to Intelligent Buildings" September 12, 13, 2005 in New York City and New Jersey. Attendees participated in a half-day session that defined the processes and technologies required for intelligent buildings as well as the value for owners. Workshops allowed attendees to begin the process of creating an intelligent facility roadmap. Event sponsors presented information about their solutions as well as case studies on successful projects.

Attendee Herbert Hanson, P.E. of We're associates, a leading private developer in Long Island, stated that "The seminar was a good first step in considering the issues and opportunities for intelligent building implementation and was thoroughly enjoyed. This was time well spent!" Other attendees commented that they could readily apply the material in working with clients on current and future projects.

The seminars were presented by the Building Intelligence Group and sponsored by Trane, General Electric Security and Eagle Technology.
