Building a more resilient Australia – Future proofing our assets
What should building owners and managers know about future proofing and safeguarding their property and HVAC&R assets during extreme events.
The CSIRO's decadal megatrends report
warns that extreme weather caused by climate change will cost the country more than $39 billion annually by 2050.
A key cornerstone to AIRAH’s advocacy
is HVAC&R resilience. As a critical enabler of the Australian economy, the HVAC&R industry has both direct and indirect roles to play in safeguarding the built environment and its occupants. The resilience of Australian buildings, the refrigerated cold chain, IT infrastructure, health services, manufacturing facilities, and processing sectors all depend on the resilience of the HVAC&R systems that support them.
The discussion will focus on resilience in practice, with AIRAH’s Resilience Checklist used to assess the resilience of real-life Australian buildings.
