Designbuild goes green

This year’s Designbuild Sydney is a must-see event for building professionals wanting to stay abreast of the latest industry trends. The major focus of the event is sustainability and green building. Zoned product areas including Green Building, Green Plumbing and the EcoSpecifier Zone will feature the latest and greenest innovations dominating the market, both nationally and abroad.

“Australians are becoming more environmentally conscious, both at home and at work. Designbuild Sydney will endeavour to respond to this growing awareness with a variety of green initiatives to ensure architects, builders and plumbers are at the forefront of their industry,” says the exhibition manager Steve Horsley.

Alongside the latest products, tools and environmentally sustainable gadgets, visitors will get a chance to hear the views of some of Australia’s most innovative industry experts in the Designbuild Seminar Series. The program will cover a diverse range of topics designed to provide inspiration, confidence and advice on how to use and implement the latest green building equipment.

One of the most pertinent topics on this year’s program will be sustainable building design and the future for Australia’s green building revolution. Key speakers include Robin Mellon, Green Star executive director from the Green Building Council of Australia, and renowned architect David Baggs, technical director of EcoSpecifier Global. Both presenters will explore environmentally sustainable building solutions and their value to the industry.

“Building professionals who have questions regarding the economic value of sustainable building will have their questions answered at this year’s show, while those already committed to green building will have the benefit of being inspired by the latest and most eco-friendly innovations under the one roof,” says Steve Horsley.

With organizers expecting the attendance of more than 10,000 building and construction professionals, the newly remodelled event is set to be the biggest and most industry-focused Designbuild exhibition to date.
