Campus buildings make up an enormous portion of the iconic university experience, due to their unique designs, capabilities, maintenance requirements, and functions in the community. While we won’t deny the part technology has played in digital infrastructure, essentially transforming traditional course delivery, library resources, and student services, we still must place importance on providing buildings that are fit-for-purpose and that appeal to the current generation of learners. These spaces play the irreplaceable role of retaining university identity, attracting world-class students and faculty, and promoting 21st century learning.
There are over 1.5 million students enrolled in Australian higher education, with predictions to steadily increase over the next decade. The influx is putting increasing pressure on university and city infrastructure, pushing all stakeholders to seek out consultation, collaborations, and best practices to thrive.
A range of case studies will be featured from leading universities, helping us understand the expectation vs reality to implementing the largest and most advanced university projects.
- Masterplan execution and effective strategic plans
- Academic incubators
- Student housing and Passive House Standards
- Innovative learning environments
- Transportation engineering
- Renewable energy
The conference will emphasise university partnerships, and how, in every situation, there is opportunity to share resources and create value. When we join forces, with government, businesses or other campus departments, we are encouraging the exchange of ideas (by creating spaces for all). Without the separations of industry, age, and resource availability, the possibilities are endless.
Expansion and change—is your university up to the test?
“Great event, well organised and insightful presenters.”
