Total Facilities speaker program released
The full speaker program has been released for four co-located built environment events, which are being held from 10–13 May at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC).
The Total Facilities, BE Summit, DesignBUILD and Digital Construction Week series of events is designed to cater to built environment professionals. Sessions held at the DesignBUILD Theatre, the Design Construction Week Theatre and The Smart Buildings Theatre will be held for free at the MCEC from 10–12 May. The Be Summit is a ticketed one-day event being held on Friday, 13 May.
Highlights of the sessions across the programs include:
Smart contracts and digital twins: Learn the concept of smart contracts executed on a blockchain, how smart contracts are used in a digital twin ecosystem and how smart contracts can be used to streamline payments.
Wellbeing and the role of technology in the asset life cycle: Explore the importance of understanding user experience and how this informs the design, modelling, analysis, ratings and ongoing building operation to design spaces that promote occupant wellbeing.
Smart buildings: Learn how smart retrofits can range from simple enhancements that reduce energy spend and improve occupant wellbeing through to a staged pathway to achieve net zero operational emissions.
The race to reduce embodied carbon: A panel of industry leaders will explore beyond the rhetoric and spotlight how embodied carbon can be reduced in the built environment.
Building a people-first construction industry: A panel discusses how we can attract and retain the best talent with a more inclusive, safer, smarter, innovative industry, as well as the key changes facing our workplaces and why this is crucial for the industry to survive.
How to make existing buildings fit for the future: This session proposes a fitness regime for buildings for a climate-changed future.
“With the challenges presented by COVID and ongoing digital disruption, keeping on the forefront of industry education is vital,” said commercial manager Lynn Ormiston. “These events provide educational forums as well as allowing the stimulating discussions to continue on the show floor, which can drive the industry forward.”
