Buildings: Australia’s Next platform for digital transformation

The transformation of our buildings sector has been long and varied. The green building agenda has had profound impact, which more recently has been augmented with a health and well-being agenda, activity-based working and agile workplace design and operation. And now, it is set to embark on its next transformation – thanks to the internet of things, data analytics, advanced manufacturing and the like. So the question emerges – is the property sector ready to become a platform for digital disruption?

Challenging Innovation vs The Innovation Challenge

The complexity in the compliance requirements for buildings is increasing and becoming more challenging to keep up with. Yet the monitoring of compliance by those that create regulations is sadly lacking and some building constructors and operators continue to expose their users by cutting corners. This session explores how the facilities manager can mitigate against such practices – to what extent should they understand all the regulations, how much should they depend on their professional advisors and are Australian and International Standards the solution?

Managing building compliance to guarantee user safety

Innovation has become a much popular term in service delivery tenders, with demand and supply sides guilty of not fully appreciating what the term means and not giving it the attention that it demands. As a result, responses to requirements for innovation tend to be very mediocre at best. This discussion will include topics such as: what the term ‘innovation’ really means; if there is a process approach to innovation, what is it; how can we measure innovation; and how can we rise to the challenge of giving innovation is rightful place in an industry demanding true ‘innovation’.
