This practical conference will cover all the key issues relating to the maintenance and management of Local Government and Public Sector Buildings. Sustainable practices are becoming increasingly commonplace and so water and energy efficiency will feature strongly at this years conference.
Local Government building portfolios are invariably a mix of small to medium size buildings at multiple sites. Some facilities are complex in regard to the requirements of users and building structures such as libraries or swimming pools.
Public Sector building portfolios are similar, but also tend to at times include large CBD office complexes and facilities of national or heritage significance such as Parliament House, Canberra or Flinders Street Railway Station.
ENERGY & WATER EFFICIENT PUBLIC SECTOR BUILDINGS & FACILITIES FORUM
Energy and water efficiency are a core theme of this year's conference, with content running throughout the two days, This allows those with a particular interest in this topic to just attend this stream as a Forum.
