News from DesignBUILD 2014

blueprint

As we enter another exciting show period we will bring you the latest industry insights and developments through our monthly newsletter, Blueprint.

As DesignBUILD's new Exhibition Manager I'm looking forward to bringing a fresh set of experiences, insights and ambitions for 2014. Coming from a conference and exhibitions background in London, DesignBUILD excites me because of the numerous opportunities for growth, not only for the show, but the industry as a whole.

In this first edition of Blueprint, we speak with the experts at the Australian Construction Industry Forum (ACIF) and highlight the key areas of growth from their current Construction Market Report. We also take a look at baby boomers and profile emerging opportunities to cater to this market, including residential, health and aged care facilities. Finally we outline the latest large-scale development opportunity in Victoria; Fishermans Bend.

Sustainability is a theme that will continue to play a major part in the show's direction this year, and DesignBUILD is set to be THE industry event to source high performance, innovative and sustainable solutions.

Cheers,
Chris May
EXHIBITION MANAGER

Flushing out old trends
Traditional flushing toilets can use up to 12 litres of water per flush, which correlates to the same volume of waste that then needs to be treated. However, technology and commercialisation of vacuum toilets in Australia is reducing water and waste requirements by as much as 90 per cent, according to the experts at Vacuum Toilets Australia.
