18:20 - Digital Engineering on Large Infrastructure Projects – Peter Hartley: Digital Specialist at Aurecon

Synopsis

The Caulfield to Dandenong project enabled Digital Innovation from a leadership level at project start-up. The advantage was implementing modern technologies via a Digital TEAM to challenge the standard delivery on large infrastructure Projects.

With this in mind we were able to push new initiatives, like BIM360Glue, Construction Sequencing, Quantity take-off and Asset Management to reduce turnaround times on site, enable more efficient construction and a broader challenge to the industry to move forward.


Speaker Bio

Peter has been in the industry for more than 15 years, starting as a drafter at Connell Wagner (now Aurecon) in 2002. Over 7 years ago, Peter moved to the uptake of BIM. Through this he has excelled with his use and understanding of Revit, and has driven 3D models for coordination, using Navisworks to visualise and federate models. More recently, Peter has moved to work on large Infrastructure projects. Taking lessons learnt on building projects, he has contributed to and provided leadership in the use of BIM and federated models for road and rail projects at Aurecon.

18:40 - Building your influence in the AEC sector for better project outcomes – Mark Jeffery: Managing Director at ODG Solutions

Synopsis

Professional and technical services firms are full of highly qualified, experienced experts who are highly talented when it comes to conceptualising and delivering on projects.  They often lack the ability to influence, negotiate, sell and market themselves. This affects project related work, and it certainly affects firms in the building and construction industry’s ability to sell and generate more business for the firm.

This presentation showcases client engagement skills that are invaluable in a multi-stakeholder project context, as well as a business development context.  It will cover 3 key business development capabilities, 9 BD fundamentals your business needs to be sustainable and able to grow as well as Where to go to learn how to better influence, negotiate and have an impact in your field.


Speaker Bio

Mark is best known as a business owner, international speaker, not-for-profit contributor, and passionate promoter of a positive workplace culture.  His company, ODG Solutions, specialises in working with professional and technical services organisations, to support and generate new business, improve leadership, whilst growing and maintaining a great culture.

Mark has spoken at Building and Construction events across Australia and South-East Asia.

19:00 - Design Dynamics – Jane Burry: Dean of Design at Swinburne University of Technology

Synopsis

Although built architecture remains largely static or only subtly dynamic, the city fabric nevertheless encounters and interacts with some of the most complex and unpredictable dynamic data and information streams. The very stasis of buildings makes this interaction more complex.

Architectural design, and its research and education, call for a phenomenal approach to the qualities of atmosphere, sound, heat, air movement, and human interaction that acknowledges the subtlety of the feedback cycles informing the design of an increasingly sensate and responsive built environment. This presentation will address the design process and the diverse approaches to modelling in response to these phenomena.


Speaker Bio

Professor Jane Burry is Dean of Design at Swinburne University of Technology, Melbourne and a practicing architect. Recent research explores the opportunities of combining digital fabrication with better ways to integrate mixed reality thermal, aero and sonic feedback in architectural design to develop more highly tuned and sustainable spaces and systems.

Jane has practiced, taught and researched internationally, including many architectural projects and involvement as a project architect in the technical office at Antoni Gaudí’s Sagrada Família church in Barcelona. She is lead author of The New Mathematics of Architecture, T&H, 2010, editor of Designing the Dynamic, Melbourne Books, 2013 and co-author of Prototyping for Architects, T&H 2016 and has over ninety other publications.
