How to reduce your waste line?
Wed 18 April, 11:45am | Business Solutions Stage
Throughout their whole life cycle, buildings generate waste. In the construction phase packaging from building materials and equipment flows to landfill in copious quantities. During the operational phase, users in the building generate large quantities of recyclable and landfill waste and at demolition, the majority of the building is treated as waste. This session explores ways in which the industry can adapt its practices to reduce waste, particularly during the operational phase.
The next big gains for energy saving in buildings
Wed 18 April, 2;30pm | KONE Smart Buildings Theatre
For the environment, building owners and building occupiers, improved building energy efficiency presents a win-win-win solution. The many benefits of energy reduction include: reducing stress on the electricity network; supporting a least-cost pathway to decarbonisation; delivering cost savings; and improving building user comfort. This session will discuss how efficiencies in energy consumption can achieve these benefits in new and renovated buildings against the background of the anticipated improvements to the National Construction Code due to be incorporated in the 2019 Code update.
Repurposing and regenerating existing buildings
Thurs 19 April, 2:15pm | Business Solutions Stage
With the enormous amount of energy and other resources that are required to construct and demolish buildings, is there not more of an opportunity for existing buildings to be repurposed for new uses? Clearly maximising the financial return on land values and improving building performance are two factors that drive most new build projects, but where are the opportunities in terms of locations and organisational and building types to make more use of old buildings and what are the architectural design challenges in repurposing 'unwanted' building stock?
