Adapting MEP to tall buildings has required a rethinking of standard approaches, resulting in several breakthrough innovations over the past half-century. As buildings become taller and slimmer, smaller site footprints introduce a new host of challenges and opportunities. Regulations and caps on greenhouse gas emissions can be difficult to navigate, especially as power and utilities must sometimes support 24-hour occupancy without drawing negative regulatory attention to building stakeholders. This workshop explores how further efficiencies can be achieved through BIM and other developing industry techniques to improve environmental performance and cost-effectiveness.

When: Monday, 28 October 2019, 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Venue: Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel at the Aqua Tower
