Innovative solutions for improved building performance and retrofit project delivery

Across Australia we are seeing investment in the retrofit of thousands of older buildings in a bid to cut energy usage and reduce emissions. Faced also with the development of many new builds which offer higher premium offerings, many property owners see the upgrade and refit of their facilities as essential if they are to remain competitive and attract and retain tenants.

Retrofit & Refurb 2014 will feature more than 13 case study sessions from current or completed retrofit projects, together with best practice sessions from industry leaders who draw on their experience of delivering some of Australia's major property transformations.
