Fire Elimination & Technology w/ Jeff Hutchens

In this episode Jeff covers what Avalonbay is and what was it like to work for a company that had two large/total loss fires in two years. We discuss the insurance ramifications of those events and the shock that drove them to create their fire elimination program to ensure it never happens again. The final piece we cover is the technologies being used that started as part of fire elimination program but it’s really a glimpse into how tech and data will change the way we build, manage and live in buildings. This one was GOLD, enjoy the show!
