MELBOURNE – After a full-house event in September, the CTBUH Australia Chapter, Melbourne Committee celebrated its second anniversary by hosting a smaller, more intimate group of construction industry supporters for an informal holiday celebration on December 4th, 2014. The event was well attended by construction industry supporters of multiple backgrounds and disciplines.

While the Christmas drinks flowed, this forum for knowledge share heard heated discussions about the challenges of building tall, what this means for Melbourne, as well as news, trends and emerging technologies from the recent 2014 CTBUH Shanghai Conference.

New members were introduced and welcomed to the CTBUH community, and City Representatives also revealed some upcoming 2015 events, including: a “superslim” case study by Bates Smart and 4D workshop in March and Meinhardt’s Glen Pederick presenting his paper on vertical transportation in June. More talks by Elenberg Fraser, Woods Bagot and Robert Bird Group are in the pipeline, as well as potential linked events with CTBUH Brisbane and New South Wales. The next CTBUH Conference, to be held in New York October 26-30, 2015, was also promoted.

The CTBUH Melbourne Committee hopes that all attendees had a good time and left with a little more Christmas spirit. Special thanks to Phil Gardiner and Irwinconsult for hosting the event and sponsors Aecom, Arup, Bates Smart and Irwinconsult. Merry Christmas to all – and here’s to an exciting 2015 for Melbourne.
