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.

Venue:

ENERGY EFFICIENCY - ARE WE CAPABLE?
  • Developments in energy efficiency has significantly changed the role of the facility manager, as optimising efficiency requires far more sophisticated understanding of building controls, ventilation and cooling scheduling, performance data analysis, etc. In addition to the evolving role of the FM, ever changing technology and the barriers which exist for the adoption of energy efficiency projects leaves us to wonder, Are We Capable?
  • To answer this question, the Facility Management Association of Australia (FMA Australia) have been undertaking it’s own research at identify what competencies do facility managers need to effectively and efficiently manage a facility, and  does existing training and education appropriately address energy efficiency.
