How Ken is building a better working world

People spend 90% of their time indoors, much of that working. I am focused on strategies and initiatives that help companies determine that their buildings are resilient, sustainable, effective and efficient, and provide healthy, safe and productive environments for their employees. As a smart buildings advocate, I’m building a better working world by helping to reimagine the built environment for a wide range of stakeholders and objectives.
