The development of more productive and eco-efficient business environments is essential to the health and well-being of our community. There is potential in all things that are designed and engineered to not only be functional and aesthetically pleasing, but also sustainable.
On 27th April, the BBP will be hosting the Commercial Office Design and Fit-out Symposium supported by a number of panellists and subject matter experts to unpack what is involved in developing more sustainable commercial office interiors.
This session provides an opportunity to bring together major stakeholders involved in leasing, designing, constructing, and occupying commercial buildings to identify the upstream and design interventions that can enable efficient downstream material recovery. The aim is to develop a community of practice that can explore the mechanisms available for intervention at the design stage of furniture specifications.
If you are involved in the commercial fit-out design community, do not miss this rare opportunity to explore pathways where we can meet the needs of your customers while still being environmentally friendly.
Since 2015, the Better Buildings Partnership (BBP) has worked with industry stakeholders to transform how commercial office refurbishment has been described, reported on and delivered by systemising processes. However, there is still a pressing need to address the recurring issues in design and construction that result in waste creation.
The vision for the future fit-out/strip-outs in Australia is integration of circular economy principles within design, avoiding any separation between those responsible for material and design specifications and those responsible end-of-life recovery.
The BBP is looking to collaborate with its suppliers and tackle how its members can create more liveable, more circular and more economical office spaces. The best way to catalyse change in upstream design starts with important conversations, identifying critical points of intervention, and co-designing solutions that can identify solutions to address fit-out and strip-out materials waste.
If you are a building owner, manager or leasing agent, tenant or tenant rep, architect, designer or specifier, fit-out contractor (builder), or otherwise involved in the design and specification commercial office fit-outs, join this session to play a part in creating a positive change for people, businesses, governments and ultimately, our planet through innovation and behavioural shifts.
