Did you know business relationships as defined within CIPO groups are integral to Optimized Building because they create an environment of collaboration, efficiency, and innovation? CIPO groups use an agreed upon set of standards, templates, and workflows (STWs) for every building project, which ensures consistency, quality, and efficiency across all projects. This also eliminates the need for companies to spend time and effort aligning their communications, authorizations, and content sharing protocols at the beginning of every project, freeing up resources that can be used to focus on building better buildings. CIPO groups can become more focused on solving the most pressing problems of the built environment, such as sustainability and energy efficiency.  Overall, CIPO groups will be better positioned to capitalize on future consulting engagements, projects, and investment opportunities in the next decade.
