We are living through unprecedented times, with global economic uncertainty and threats to our natural environment, which creates significant challenges for the building sector.
We need both immediate and long term responses to advance Australia’s prosperity; quality of life; and to create a sustainable future.
BEMP 2009 will focus on how the building sector, in partnership with Government, can contribute to Australia’s early recovery and provide a strong foundation for future prosperity.
This year’s BEMP will explore the following themes: Prosperity, Liveability, Sustainability and Partnerships.
The Planning Institute of Australia, Australian Institute of Architects, Property Council of Australia, Green Building Council Australia and Association of Consulting Engineers Australia are joint hosts of the annual Summit.
