Driving building performance, efficiency and user satisfaction through the design and integration of IoT, automation and innovative building management technologies

Conference | 28th February 2019

With Australia’s population tipping over 25 million, the country has seen a surge in development and construction to meet growing demand.  New challenges surrounding energy costs and efficiency, safe and sustainable building materials and liveability and design has seen the real estate sector increasingly embrace the concept of smart and intelligent buildings.
The Smart Building Summit is a premier conference that brings together developers, architects, real estate firms, engineers, facility managers and technology companies to explore the latest strategies and technological insights for in-building technologies and the future of smart residential, commercial and mixed used buildings.   

The event is co-located with the Construction Technology & Transformation Summit which will bring together the construction sector to enhance digital transformation and leverage technology and innovation to simplify construction processes and improve efficiency, productivity, quality and safety.

The event is collocated with the 2nd Safe Cladding, Buildings & Facade Innovation Summit - The first and only national event series for government, building owners, developers, certifiers and fire safety professionals to rectify and ensure the safety and compliance of Australia’s buildings.
