Site 1001, Inc.’s new Orange County-based innovation center will be home to its growing smart cities’ data science, machine learning and artificial intelligence teams

San Clemente, Calif. – May 14, 2018 – Smart building software developer, Site 1001, announced the opening of its new tech hub in south Orange County’s San Clemente. The new facility will be home to the company’s new data science unit and 20 new software engineers specializing in AI, machine learning and blockchain technologies. The tech hub development team will be working on a variety of Site 1001’s smart building projects including voice interaction, adaptable building behavior, and connected buildings/communities.

“Most people don’t think of buildings as much more than big containers to hold whatever work we do in them, so they’re generally overlooked when people talk about ‘smart’ cities and communities,” said Pete Fiacco, CTO at Site 1001. “But cities are made of buildings, which means the biggest opportunity to make huge improvements to the quality, comfort and sustainability of our cities and communities is by making our buildings smarter, more efficient and better connected to the people and infrastructure around them. Our new tech hub is focusing on making this vision a reality.”

San Clemente was chosen for Site 1001’s tech hub for its central location between San Diego and Los Angeles, an area ripe with talent for the new engineering positions. With a dozen top-ranked universities nearby, the new tech hub is perfectly suited for the technology-filled region and gives creators opportunities to join the company at a pivotal point.

Site 1001’s focus on the areas of intelligent software design is reflected in the company’s recent reorganization and shift to a building performance and operations platform. The company’s engineering team will build upon the platform’s proven success and roots in facilities management and maintenance with new AI-based capabilities that make the building run at its maximum potential.

The company’s Director of Data Science, Dr. Filip Ponulak, will lead the new data sciences unit. With over 15 patents in the field, Dr. Ponulak’s background in neural computation, machine learning, data science, and robotics is the foundation for the team to grow Site 1001’s modeling of the central nervous system within buildings.

Site 1001 makes software that helps building owners and operators improve performance by giving them a complete 360* view of how their building is doing. Combining information from major building systems like heating and cooling, electrical, and water with people-generated data from complaints or repair work orders, Site 1001’s platform connects real time performance to comfort, sustainability and longevity and helps maximize building performance and reduce operating costs.

“We’re building a platform that we think will not only change how people look at buildings, but how buildings adapt and even how they’re built,” said Fiacco. “The Site 1001 engineering team is bringing the hottest capabilities out there into today’s buildings, which is proving to be an area hungry and desperate for improvement.”

Site 1001 is currently hiring engineers with machine learning, AI, blockchain and data science expertise to staff the tech hub. Available positions include full time software engineers, machine learning internships, software program managers and more. Details can be found on the company’s website:
