1 – 1:50pm | Welcome Address and Presentation
Climate change adaption is our human response to the challenge of our changing climate. 40% of global resources go the built environment and a major contribution that the built environment can make to climate change adaption is making use of infrastructure that we already have. Renewing, replacing and adaptive reuse are all strategies which our industry can embrace to tackle our part in improving our planet, but they are also good new business opportunities to move our industry forward. This presentation will showcase some of these new opportunities and outline the issues that need to be addressed for a more sustainable future.
2 – 2:50pm
In the wake of an unprecedented pandemic that required extreme adaptation, business owners have been faced with a host of unique challenges in the past two years, including changes in work environments, supply chain disruption, recruiting and retaining qualified employees, and more.
Moderator Nic Goldsmith will engage a panel of industry experts on a number of topics including resilience throughout the pandemic, current and future trends in fabric structures, and challenges related to codes, project bidding, structural failures and more.
