Project Haystack Exhibiting at ISH 2019 in Frankfurt

Written by

Project Haystack is exhibiting at the ISH 2019 Conference at Messe Frankfurt in Frankfurt, Germany next month March 11 - 15, 2019 in Hall 10.3, Stand A61. The conference website is!

ISH is the world’s leading trade fair focusing on the responsible management of water and energy in buildings. It sets trends for modern bathroom design, sustainable heating and air-conditioning technology as well as intelligent home systems.

Today we announced that we presented DLR Group the Project Haystack Award for their support of the Project Haystack open-source project and adoption of the methodology as an end user, in front of a packed house at the 2018 ControlTrends Awards ceremony held January 13th in Atlanta during AHR Expo 2019.

DLR Group is an integrated design firm with 30 offices around the globe and over 1,200 professionals delivering architecture, engineering, interiors, planning, and building optimization for new construction, renovation, and adaptive reuse projects. One of the world’s leading sustainable design firms, DLR Group’s promise is to elevate the human experience through design. This promise inspires sustainable design for a diverse group of public and private sector clients, local communities, and our planet. DLR Group is 100 percent employee-owned and was an early adopter of the Architecture 2030 Challenge, an initial signatory to the AIA 2030 Commitment and the China Accord.

“In the past year we have seen a significant increase in world-wide adoption of the Project Haystack methodology in the building industry, and expanding into smart devices for homes, industrial facilities, factories and agriculture,” said John Petze, Executive Director of the Project Haystack Organization. “We’re pleased to recognize DLR Group’s use of the Haystack methodology of semantic modeling and tagging, implemented through their Building Optimization and High-Performance Design practices.”

Today we announced the addition of four new sponsors for its 2019 Haystack Connect conference: Gold sponsor Kodaro and Silver sponsors BTIB, Intellastar and StackHub.

The two-and-a-half-day long conference includes keynote presentations, a vendor exhibition hall, and a packed schedule of technical sessions covering data acquisition, communications, protocol translation, data visualization, analytics, data semantics, modeling and security — all critical technologies essential to using operational data to drive improved performance.

Project Haystack is excited to announce the publication of the Haystack Connections Magazine Winter 2019 issue – the 5th edition of the magazine. Haystack Connections reports the news from the Haystack community and provides updates on adoption of the Haystack standard by consultants, end users, manufacturers and software developers, and presents stories demonstrating the success of the community as we work together to make device data easier to use across applications of all types.

An official press announcement will be released on Tuesday, January 15, 2019 at 8:00 AM EST.

The theme of this issue of our Connections Magazine is ‘Enabling the Data Revolution in the Built Environment’. Given the number of projects, events and work in progress by the Haystack community around the world, this seemed an appropriate theme for this issue.
