Intelligent Precincts – The Opportunities and Risks for Building Professionals

Back to ANZ home

Population growth pressures and congestion is taking its toll on our communities. Governments are responding to these difficulties and evolving community needs and expectations by changing the way infrastructure is planned and delivered. This new approach looks at infrastructure and land use holistically. It prioritises enhancing current and future liveability for the people who live and work there.

Queen’s Wharf Precinct – Brisbane

This densification is creating opportunities to use technology to enhance the lives of the people using these new spaces.  With this also comes the added complexity of balancing safety and security with the need to provide more intelligence to these spaces.  Technology should be there to support these new precincts and not drive their development.  As people move between the difference spaces within a precinct they want the ability to make use of this technology to improve their experience, not detract from it.  So careful planning to address current needs with a clear view of future flexibility is key to these smart precincts.

Next month, Peter Greaves, Buildings of the Future Leader and Tim Spies, Global Mechanical Leader and Client Director of Aurecon will share case studies of intelligent precincts, outlining risks and opportunities at the 2019 CIBSE ANZ Seminar Series – IoT, the Neurology of Building Operation – open for registration in Perth, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Auckland.

This is an opportunity for building owners, designers, constructors and operators around the region to hear, meet, learn and discuss how precincts will be part of our urban future.

With 8 presentations at this half day event delegates can expect insights into the latest innovations and opportunities for building operations driven by the Internet of Things.
