Utilising innovative digital tools to improve and advance our built environment is a key focus of the 2012 Built Environment Meets Parliament (BEMP) summit
How will new digital technologies, including Building Information Modelling and 4D Modelling, change the way we design urban spaces in the future?
Taking place on Wednesday 27 June, BEMP 2012 will address this question as well as concentrate on the analysis and discussion of the COAG Council report on Strategic Planning of Capital Cities; innovative approaches to community consultation and engagement; and address the question of Whats the next big revolution in building cities?
Keynote speaker Dr Rebecca Huntley - an academic and sought after commentator on social trends - will explore community attitudes about population and urban planning in particular roads, housing, public transport and green spaces.
The influential gathering offers a unique opportunity to explore the economic, social, environmental and governance issues that influence national prosperity. It is hosted by The Australian Institute of Architects, Consult Australia, Green Building Council Australia (GBCA), Planning Institute of Australia (PIA) and the Property Council of Australia (PCA).
Professionals including architects, engineers, planners and developers from both the private and public sectors will be attending and participating in the summit along with political advisors and dignitaries.
In addition to the enriching program of academic and ministerial speakers, The Hon Anthony Albanese will launch the Green Star Communities rating tool developed by the GBCA to drive more sustainable, productive and liveable communities. Also at BEMP, the ASBEC Climate Change Adaptation Framework will be unveiled, which is a new policy framework addressing the impact of climate change on the built environment.
