Sustainability and innovation in the face of adversity

Sydney, Australia – 13 July, 2009


The effects of global warming pose a challenge for the construction industry to meet end user demands and develop sustainable façades which are still aesthetically pleasing.  

Take for instance the luminous Water Cube in Beijing, or the Burj Al Arab Hotel in Dubai, both architecturally iconic and perfect examples of how concept can be transformed into reality when there is a strong and communicative relationship between architects, engineers and contractors.

Setting the overall tone for a commercial structure and exposed to harsh climate conditions, the façade is one of the most important elements for the effective function and longevity of a building. The global ‘green’ trend to combat warming has meant energy efficiency and sustainability are the biggest priorities for end users of building façades.

Although current inertia in this market locally has increased pressure and competitiveness, there is still a considerate amount of current and upcoming new development as well as façade revitalisation. Underpinning this is Australia’s position as a global leader in terms of green and sustainable technologies and use of materials, which has proven successful on the international market.

IQPC is launching the inaugural Façade Design & Engineering - Australia, to explore strategies to achieve sustainable and energy efficient façades while integrating the highest standards of aesthetics, innovation, and technology possible in façade design and engineering.  

Bringing together façade engineers, architects and contractors,  from Australia’s leading firms; Meinhardt Façade Technology, Hassell, Hyder Consulting, Watpac, The Buchan Group, and Johnson Pilton Walker and more.

This is your opportunity to interact with leaders in this space and explore future trends and innovation. Visit www.facadedesign.com.au or call + 61 2 9229 1000.
