The Agenda

You get a choice to choose your own stream during the two days conference

Day three focuses on "Transit Oriented Developments: Delivering Vibrant Mixed Use Communities". Here we will discuss the challenges and best practices when designing Transit Oriented Developments. Explore how to emphasise the integration of transit, best plan urban growth and create interfaces with transport services to bring significant economic and social benefits to the community.

Stream One: Placemaking & Inclusive Design

Here we will uncover urban planning, design, as well as the importance of successful integration of land use and transportation in the delivery of these developments. This stream focuses on elements of masterplanning and designing towns and cities towards more holistic, inclusive communities. It will include strategies to create public spaces to promote better community interaction and look at how to integrate new city projects within existing developments to create a vibrant sustainable society. We will also look at sustainable urban mobility through the use of Transit Oriented Developments, as well as the use of urban mobility solutions to reduce traffic congestion in crowded urban areas.

Stream Two: Smart Buildings & Future Tech

We will provide a platform to address current challenges and discuss innovative strategies to enable the reduction of operating costs and increase the implementation of energy management strategies for buildings through the adoption of sustainable architecture, innovative materials and energy efficient building technologies. We will explore the use of passive design, facades, vertical greenery and building typology to enhance long term sustainability. We will also delve into best practices and approaches to enable facility optimisation through the convergence of intelligent design, building automation and IT. We will also aim to cover new trends in IoT, Building Information Modelling, Modular & Prefab Construction, HVAC, Solar, Smart Grid and Onsite Renewable Energy Systems.
