Bringing together developers, architects, and asset owners and the construction sector to leverage design and technology for delivering smart and intelligent buildings

Conference | 28th February 2019

The Smart Buildings Australia Summit will bring together developers and asset owners to leverage design and technology for delivering intelligent buildings. Learn the best practices and leverage opportunities to innovate your processes, delivery and outcomes, enhancing occupant experience and increasing profitability. 
The event will provide you with the opportunity to hear from experts in the built industry as they share strategies for embracing the digital disruption to provide enhanced comfort, safety and security to occupants. Learn from and network with developers and the heads of technology and innovation from Meriton, Jacobs, Downer and Fulton Hogan, and find out how your organisation too can incorporate new innovations and technologies into design, engineering and development to drive and deliver value in their operations, strategies, and end products.

The event is co-located with the Construction Technology & Transformation Summit which will bring together the construction sector to enhance digital transformation and leverage technology and innovation to simplify construction processes and improve efficiency, productivity, quality and safety. 

The event is collocated with the 2nd Safe Cladding, Buildings & Facade Innovation Summit - The first and only national event series for government, building owners, developers, certifiers and fire safety professionals to rectify and ensure the safety and compliance of Australia’s buildings.
