Event Details

Hendry General Manager Building Consulting Paul Bailey will be speaking on a panel on the topic of:

Crisis or Opportunity? Combustible Cladding in the Skyscraper Sector

  • After catastrophic fires damaged the foundations of high-rise apartments locally and internationally, various cladding taskforces have been formed around Australia to regulate usage of the material across the residential high-rise sector. Are these taskforces enough?
  • Exploring innovative material alternatives to cladding.
  • Reshaping responsibility, from government to industry.


Reshaping the High-Rise Sector, One Step at a Time

For three years now, the Australian Smart Skyscrapers Summit has committed to providing attendees with expert perspectives on the smart and sustainable design, development and construction of skyscrapers.

In 2021, the summit will seek to redefine what a ‘smart’ and ‘sustainable’ tall building looks like – especially within a climate of shifting reform and heightened focus on tenant safety. Safety across all stages of a high-rise’s lifecycle will be explored, from planning and development all the way to maintenance.

We want to equip attendees with the knowledge to produce safe, human-centric skyscrapers within state and nationally specific policy frameworks, and we will explore the appropriate concepts and methods for doing so. Our unique blend of keynote presentations, interactive panel discussions and hours of networking will allow you to gain a holistic understanding of skyscraper development today, while drawing you to the local and overseas leaders who can provide you with the opportunity to contribute to creating a better sphere of skyscrapers, Australia-wide.

Environmental sustainability, the role of technology, pleasing aesthetics and culturally inspired urban tall building design will still feature strongly within the 2020 program, but the summit will draw together these elements under the umbrella of achieving safer, more holistic and ultimately future-proof practices across the board.
