Green Building Conference 2008

Green Building Conference 2008

The Green Building Conference is just a mere few weeks away. The conference is to be held at the Vodaworld (Midrand) on the 21st to 23rd of August. This year’s green event promises to exceed all expectations and cover more ground than last year’s green building event. Due to all the changes in the industry, with professionals both nationally and globally working hard to push the ‘green’ envelope, information, techniques and programmes is flooding into the industry.

Green Building Conference and Exhibition has filtered through all new, relevant information and with the help of high-level speakers, such as Mich Pearch from Design Inc in Australia, Llewellyn van Wyk who is the head of the CSIR, as well as Simon Wossner from the Fraunhofer-Institut Bauphysik in Germany, and Fanuel Motsepe from the Gauteng Institute for Architecture, have determined key issues to present to delegates from all fields in the industry.

With last year’s green building event answering the question of what is ‘green,’ this year they will be focusing on how to be ‘green.’ Some of the topics include Green Building Design, Green Building Materials and Green Building Technologies. Dr Daniel Irurah from the University of the Witwatersrand will be reviewing the new Green Star rating system, basing his presentation on the newly released Pilot version from the South African Green Building Council.

Another key system that has been released for public comment is the South African National Standards 204, which focuses on energy efficiency standards for all new and built buildings in South Africa. This review will be discussed by Howard Harris from the WSP Group.

One of the biggest construction projects happening right now in South Africa is the various stadiums and buildings being built for 2010 World Cup. Jermey Gibberd, an Architect from the CSIR will be giving a presentation on the greening of the 2010 stadiums, looking at the various sustainability issues and green implementations.

The Green Building Conference will also include two break-away sessions, a catch-up on the Retrofitting Seminar from earlier this year, as well as a presentation on the new Lexus Hybrid Technologies.
