Future Building Insight Summit 2019
The Building Products Industry Council (BPIC) in collaboration with Lendlease have brought together a massive line-up of speakers over two packed days to help you tackle the blizzard of changes and reforms that are shaping the sector now and for the years to come.
This two-day event with more than 120 senior building industry decision-makers expected to attend, will focus on current and expected technological, regulatory and economic disruptions. It will uncover new opportunities and most importantly, foster the development of effective strategies, And yes, automation and cool emerging new tech applications will be covered in this exciting and fast-paced summit, which will also provide excellent networking opportunity for attendees.
If you think the future of the construction industry is just about robotics, exoskeletons, autonomous vehicles, virtual + augmented reality, advanced materials and digital transformation, hold on to your computer mouse.
We have entered an era where co-operative federalism has given way to ‘every-jurisdiction-for-themselves’, where churn within our political leadership and government institutions has diluted the building industry’s advocacy efforts, and where political leadership is failing to produce robust and properly considered industry policy. Combined with disruptive advances in building technology, the imminent mass-exit of senior technical expertise from the workforce, and rapidly declining public confidence in the building industry, we are in for a bumpy ride.
To help navigate these disruptive changes the line-up of speakers will focus on answering the fundamental questions of:
• Where is the building industry in Australia heading?
• What are the critical issues and how can they be addressed?
• How do we escape the political short term focus and plan for the long term?
BPIC’s primary objective is to help improve building and construction standards. It is a national peak body representing Australia’s leading building products industries and related services. It works to disseminate practical and current industry information on behalf of its member organisations and other organisations and companies that are not members but follow BPIC through various means.
This industry-wide approach to responding to regulatory issues, helps to ensure that Governments are informed of possible problems in the building industry and are provided with appropriate industry-considered responses. BPIC also encourages investment in skills formation, product development and industry research by helping to identify and remove regulatory impediments to innovation.
