Save the Date for this Conference. How should we educate and train our builders for the future? Are our current systems keeping up with the demands of new technology? What might the buildings of the future demand of builders’ knowledge and processes? What are the politicians planning for our sector and how do the financiers see the future for building in our region? The 2019 Constructing Our World Conference in Sydney will address these questions and more. The organisers are planning two days of speakers and interactive sessions as well as time to enjoy the sights and attractions of beautiful Sydney. Builders, project managers, educators, students, government policy makers, suppliers and construction allied personnel are sure to enjoy and benefit from attendance at the conference.
There will be an extended program for international delegates which will include fringe events as well as a welcome reception on the eve of the conference. Constructing Our World is an initiative in collaboration with the Australian Institute of Building, the New Zealand Institute of Building and the Singapore Institute of Building Limited.
Save the date 18 – 20 September 2019. Expressions of Interest are being accepted now.

Universal Design and Assistive Technolgy (AT) are partners in the same quest – inclusion and participation for everyone. AAATE believes that UD (Design for All) and AT should be looked at as part of the same domain of knowledge, rather that deal with these as two distinct domains. Practitioners in the UD world focus on designs that are inclusive and enabling rather than excluding. However, UD is not the answer to everything and some people need individual solutions and specialised designs. The simplest example is a paraplegic needs both a wheelchair and a step-free entry. One is no good without the other. AT is now a major part of the NDIS and there is growing interest in this field
