The Smart Building and Infrastructure Summit will be taking place at the Durban Exhibition Centre, KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) from 22 to 23 February 2017.
Aimed at the building fraternity (architects, developers, engineers, facility managers, government, municipalities, interior designers) the Summit is Africa’s only platform designed for decision-makers and analysts from the public and private sectors responsible for the design, construction and operation of infrastructure assets and or the specification and procurement of major infrastructure assets.
“Some 65% of South Africa’s population already live in urban areas and this number is growing by 1,2% annually. We also know that infrastructure demands in most African cities are expected to almost double by 2030. It is therefore not surprising that smarter approaches to city infrastructure are non-negotiable,” says Daniel Claassen, programme director.
The Summit will not only showcase new and better ways of working together with project stakeholders, but will equip delegates with tools to improve urban planning and drive sustainability.
“We have structured the Summit in such a way delegates will be given the opportunity to influence discussions, access a large pool of experts who are tackling similar challenges and to learn about new technologies that are suitable for the South African market. There are also some great networking opportunities with key industry stakeholders,” concludes Claassen.
