Total Facilities 2015 seminar program announced

Thursday, 26 February, 2015

Total Facilities, a seminar and exhibition event for the built environment, will be held from 25-26 March at its new home of the Sydney Exhibition Centre @ Glebe Island. The event is designed to reduce cost and improve performance of the nation’s facilities, as well as connect more than 160 suppliers with 2500 end users.

Attendees will be given a special preview of the International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney), which is scheduled to officially open in December 2016. ICC Sydney General Manager Adam Mather-Brown, the keynote speaker at the event, will provide an overview of the key features designed to enhance the end-user experience at the new centre.

“The planning and preparation for an international venue of the scale and importance of ICC Sydney is immensely exciting, as we are laying the foundations for an asset that will benefit the community for decades to come,” Mather-Brown said.

“Capitalising on our inner-city location, ICC Sydney’s smart, contemporary design delivers more event space and optimised usability.”

Total Facilities Event Manager David Skilton said the event’s seminar program, to be delivered on two stages, will host both local and international speakers and deliver practical information to assist with operating facilities more effectively and efficiently.

“The Main Stage Seminar Theatre covers a broad range of topics including building information modelling and contract management, while the High Performance Buildings Theatre offers targeted education sessions on improving energy and resource efficiencies to create a more sustainable building,” Skilton said.

“Facilities managers will be able to use the seminar sessions as a platform to raise their respective challenges and opportunities through a Q&A with the industry’s leading experts.”

Notable speakers in the seminar program will include:

  • The Energy Efficiency Council’s Luke Menzel, who will be discussing professionals you can trust to deliver comprehensive building retrofits;
  • BuildingIQ’s Peter Dickinson, who will introduce a case study on creating cash flow in high-performance buildings; and
  • Contract Control International’s George Strohfeldt, who will discuss a skills model for successful contract management.
