Overview: BPU

Urbata 7: Building Profile Utility is an open interface and database that integrates and organizes the complex data, design networks, myriad stakeholders and the visible and invisible infrastructure of each building into an easy-to-use, interactive interface and ecosystem.

The interactive system organizes the buildings you use and the seven architectural essentials for each: space, maintenance, systems, energy, site, transit and life (history). The (BPU) Building Profile Utility integrates specialized industries together, such as energy grids, industrial design, architecture, programming and manufacturing, where stakeholders can directly manage their buildings and research other community buildings for references to better and less expensive options — better, for more for less. Green tech startups, legacy manufactures, and stakeholders can all see the same building profiles that facilitate new connections via case studies of each—with no sensitive data needed.

In addition to the digital integration of the BPU, we are also developing a pilot hub in Syracuse, NY (or close-by) that can bring together community stakeholders into the design process, a blueprint for evaluation of best data sources found for future scaling, a design network map to manage our design connections, and a scaling plan for safe building data practices we can scale to other communities.
