Demolishing properties and replacing them with more sustainable ones doesn’t add up. It’s not cost-effective, and doesn’t fit with our aspirations to nurture a circular economy that minimises the impact of building materials and construction processes on the environment. So, how do we lower the environmental impact of our buildings and enhance our cities in a sustainable way? Clearly, something needs to change.
The Retrofit & Repurpose Summit 2023 will bring together leading owners, investors, developers, constructors, architects, engineering firms, consultants, regulators, city governments and ESCOs to discuss strategies to successfully transition real estate to meet decarbonisation targets and tenant expectations, reduce portfolio risk, generate better investment returns and enhance our cities.
The Summit will focus on 4 main themes:
- Building for a Net Zero Future: How Retrofit offers building owners the opportunity to make structures more efficient and cost effective through modern design initiatives
- Evolving Communities/Social impact: Refurbishing and reinvigorating existing structures to include human-centric design elements to inspire high-performance
- Smart Buildings: Implementing new technology systems that connect buildings occupants with surrounding networks to ensure more agile, energy-efficient and competitive spaces
- Heritage & Design: How Retrofit allows building owners to revitalise and regenerate structures to better connect to the public realm without compromising nostalgic appeal
The Summit will feature top level presentations, interactive panel discussions as well as roundtables and networking activities.
