The Pre-loved Buildings Forum advocates that a strong focus on HVAC&R in the existing built environment can achieve dramatic effects when it comes to reducing energy use, conserving water, and improving the occupied space.
The forum will offer an insight into understanding the drivers behind the decision to reuse a building, as well as the unique constraints of a retrofit, adaptive reuse or refurbishment project. This forum will be the place to hear updates from government, case studies, lessons learnt, and an overview of the latest research.
Note: early bird prices close on July 3.
