You canâ€™t help but be impressed with the progress and ingenuity shown in the latest high-performance buildings. Indeed, environmentally sustainable design for new structures has moved ahead at a bewildering rate. Yet now itâ€™s time that our existing building stock started to catch up.
Thatâ€™s why AIRAHâ€™s Pre-loved Buildings Conference is so important. The conference will be held in Melbourne from November 19-20.
Between 95 to 98 per cent of all buildings in Australia are â€œpre-lovedâ€. That is, they are at least a few years old. Some are tired, some are shabby, some are just plain run down. And very few if any of them are designed with sustainability in mind.
â€œUpdating the existing building stock in Australia has become the most urgent of priorities,â€ says AIRAH technical manager Phil Wilkinson. â€œThey represent an obvious area where improvements can be made, efficiencies achieved and dollars saved.â€
Sponsored by Sustainability Victoria, the conference will focus on optimising the sustainable performance of energy, water, refrigerant management and IEQ, including:
Ongoing building maintenance
Optimising the use of controls
Who should attend this conference?
Design engineers and consultants
Service personnel and installers
Mechanical services contractors
This Pre-loved Buildings Conference is the fourth in a series of highly successful AIRAH conferences.
Previous pre-loved conferences were held in 2006 (Melbourne), 2007 (Brisbane) and 2008 (Sydney).
