ARBS 2016, Australia’s only international air conditioning, refrigeration and building services trade exhibition, will be opening registrations for its leading edge seminar program on March 21.

Meanwhile, ARBS has released a sneak peek of a seminar panel discussion sure to create interest within the industry.

Entitled Is Wellness the Next Green, panelists include:

·       Romilly Madew, Chief Executive Officer Green Building Council of Australia

·       Tony Armstrong, International WELL Building Institute (IWBI)

·       Mark McKenna, NDY Group Leader, Sustainability Norman Disney & Young

The moderator is Tony Arnel, Global Director Sustainability, Norman Disney & Young & President, Energy Efficiency Council.

The seminar will discuss the industry pundits’ forecast of the next wave sweeping the property sector – WELLness.

The WELL Building Standard, established in the United States by the International WELL Building Institute, uses evidence-based medical and scientific research to harness the built environment as a vehicle to support human health and wellbeing. More than two million sqm of space has gained WELL certification in 12 countries.

A number of Australian heavyweights are lining up to register WELL projects. Lendlease has promised to explore piloting the upcoming WELL Community standard for key urban regeneration projects. Macquarie Group looks set to achieve the first WELL Building rating in Australia, while DEXUS and Frasers Property have both registered projects.

So, will the WELL Standard be the next Green Star or NABERS? How can WELL ratings help building owners and managers measure the health and wellbeing of building occupants? And will it become a new market differentiator that separates the leaders from the laggards?

This session will provide a nuts-and-bolts explanation of the WELL Building Standard and its focus areas, explore opportunities and obstacles to its take-up in Australia, and why healthy buildings are becoming the “next big thing.”

ARBS 2016 will be held from 17-19 May 2016 at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition from May 17-19.

If you are involved in the heating, ventilation, air conditioning, refrigeration and building services industry then you cannot miss this major industry event.
