BE Summit, DesignBUILD, Total Facilities and Digital Construction Week will be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre over one week from May 10–13.

Covering industries ranging from planning and construction to technology and facilities management, the well-known conferences will join forces to create what organisers are describing as “a unique built environment event for Melbourne”.

Commercial Manager Lynn Ormiston says the past two years have allowed time to create a new whole-of-industry style approach to these events.

“With the rise of building information management (BIM) systems, the various built environment sectors have become increasingly interdependent, so cross-sector knowledge is more important than ever,” says Ormiston.

“We have collected feedback and fine-tuned these events so this year we are confident of delivering an exceptional experience for both exhibitors and attendees.”

The event also brings together major built environment industry groups. Partners include the Australian Construction Industry Forum (ACIF), Australian Institute of Building (AIB), Australian Institute of Quantity Surveyors (AIQS), National Precast Concrete Association Australia, Women in BIM, the Green Building Institute and the Facility Management Association of Australia (FMA).

DesignBUILD 2022 has adopted a renewed focus on quality products, sustainable solutions and smart tech. Exhibitors represent Australia’s architecture, building, construction and design industries.

Total Facilities will be co-located with DesignBUILD, offering the latest products, technology and information for best-practice infrastructure and facilities management. It is dedicated to help creating better and smarter spaces, cultures, people and insights.

Design + Build Theatre is a carefully curated speaker series covering hot topics in the building and construction industries. Topics include “Clarity in the Eye of the Supply Storm”, “Design of Workplaces post Covid”, “Passive Housing” and “The Benefits of Mass Timber in a Circular Economy”.

The Smart Building Theatre, sponsored by Rapid Test Systems, will share information about creating smarter and more efficient buildings over three days of free presentations by facility management industry experts. The program includes topics such as “Improving building compliance and occupant wellbeing”, “Unlocking the value in adoption of AS/ISO 41001” and “Practical approaches to getting started on the journey to net zero emissions”.

Digital Construction Week Theatre, sponsored by NBS, is a leading UK platform for innovation and technology in the built environment, and debuts this year in Australia. The DCW Theatre sessions will cover next-generation technology to keep participants abreast of developments in BIM. In addition to the DCW Theatre, there will also be a series of exclusive access and site visits to leading BIM projects in progress.

Finally, Be Summit is a one-day event held on May 13 featuring a full speaking agenda of industry leaders, government officials and market leaders plus valuable networking opportunities. It will cover the latest thought leadership in the future of work, the circular economy and construction technology.
