Green Building Conference and Exhibition

Green Building Conference and Exhibition

2012 will see the sixth return of the annual Green Building Conference and Exhibition. An exhibition that offers delegates presentations from some of the worlds leading Green Building speakers as well as an extensive exhibition of green building products and services, all combined with innovative design charrettes. The charrettes are practical group discussion sessions that are centred on the notion of collaborative design and are an opportunity to apply theory to a practical example. The Conference and Exhibition is held in association with South Africas industry professional institutes and attracts the leading decision making members of key organisations who are committed to learning about and embracing green building techniques. The wide variety of products on the exhibition floor make the event an ideal place to expose new green products to the industry.

Over the years the media coverage of the event has grown considerably and 2005s preliminary event guide was distributed to 70 000 Engineering News readers. Delegates at the event were provided with four types of content that take into account the changing green building requirements of design and construction professionals in South Africa, Inspirational International presentations from star architects and designers, Locally relevant plenary content from South Africa's thought leaders, Even more emphasis on practical, locally applicable, case study-based break away sessions as well as Current and new products, technologies and services available in South Africa.

In multiple forums at COP17, which was held in Durban South Africa in 2011, the built environment was again acknowledged as a primary contributor to climate change and a hot spot for accessing mitigation opportunities. The built environment was also highlighted for adaptive measures and interventions, fundamental to creating more climate resilient cities and communities into the future. The Green Building Conference 2012 will endeavour to answer the question, why has green building not become standard practice for new buildings and refurbishments in South Africa, by firstly presenting the results of a survey of building projects to ascertain the state of the market, together with a set of practical design and technological solutions available right now to meet the new energy efficiency regulations. The event will again showcase global and South African leadership in green building design with buildings featured from around the world and South Africa. Through their leadership building developers and their professional teams are demonstrating the leading edge of design through an integrated approach, and with quantifiable results.

Delegates are invited to attend this facilitated event which could emerge as watershed Green Building Conference, and to contribute to the outcomes expressed above.
