Description (last modified by

One-sentence layman's description: This demo exhibits a new resource impact tool for the architectural design and planning process intended to mainstream sustainable design at a national scale.

Who should see this demo? Attendees interested in building performance, energy and water efficiency, greenhouse gas emission, and sustainable design should see this demo.

Demo description paragraph(s): PlanIT Impact is currently the only design tool that integrates gigabit internet speed, Open Data, and geo-locating infrastructure to provide a 3D-immersive resource impact reporting tool. Ultimately, the purpose of PlanIT Impact is to decrease the negative impacts that our built environment have on our environment. The current reality is that, according to 2013 US Energy Administration statistics, commercial and residential buildings emit almost as much CO2 and use nearly as much energy as the transportation and industrial sectors combined. While design and planning professionals, municipalities and other building-related individuals are actively pushing to reduce these impacts, the tools needed to do so are limited in function and prohibitively expensive to access.

PlanIT Impact is being developed to use Open Data and gigabit speeds to make the design process smarter and more efficient. The tool enables planners, architects, developers, citizens and students to access an aggregation of Open Data to explore building development scenarios and engage in comparative analysis in a visually immersive, 3D design environment. The tool will generate accurate building and site performance projections to help predict building impacts and performance related to energy use, water use, stormwater runoff, greenhouse gas emissions, transportation and connectivity, building mix and density, return on investment, and quality of life.

List of equipment that will need AC connections (e.g. laptop, switch, monitor): Laptop

Total number of wired network connections (sum standard IP and VLAN connections):

  • Number of wired layer 2 VLANs (if any): NA
  • Number of wireless network connections (include required bandwidth if significant): 1…gigabit bandwidth required
  • Monitor (y/n, specify VGA or DVI): Yes…DVI (or HDMI, if available)…32” is fine

Number of posters (max size poster boards are 30" x 40"): 2

Special requests: N/A

Entered for Kerri Maginn, Chief Creative Officer at PlanITImpact.

Chris Morris will be attending for PlanIT (now listed as the reporter on this ticket). Kari Keefe from Mozilla Ignite is also familiair with the tool.
