Population growth, particularly in our major cities, is resulting in an overcrowding problem in our schools. As a result it has never been more important for effective school planning policies. The NSW Government have just announced a $1b spree on 1,100 new classrooms to be constructed over the next four years. But who will build them? What will they look like? And what place will technology play in the schools of the future?

These questions and many more will be answered at the 2nd annual School Planning, Design and Construction conference. The event will feature keynote government addresses; sessions on innovative classroom design; discussions on effective project delivery; and analysis on future demand requirements for all of Australia's major cities.
