Austral Bricks  is a Gold Partner and Premium Sponsor of the 2012 Building Designers Australia (BDA) Annual National Conference and Design Awards to be held at the Australian National Maritime Museum in Sydney’s Darling Harbour on April 19-21, 2012.

As one of Australia’s largest producers of building products including clay bricks, pavers and stylish façade systems, Austral Bricks is a proud sponsor of the event, and is also exhibiting at the conference.

Austral Brick’s stand at the BDA exhibition aims to promote the special environmental benefits of building with bricks including their thermal mass qualities, which used in conjunction with passive design can efficiently help manage building temperatures during climate extremes.

A member of Building Designers of Australia, Austral Bricks keeps itself updated on the latest trends in environmental sustainability, product innovation and construction technology through regular professional development seminars undertaken in conjunction with major industry stakeholders.

Building Designers Australia is the national co-coordinating body for the State Building Designers Associations. The conference program will run as two parallel initiatives, alternatively focusing on the conference theme of Design for the Times, Past, Present and Future, where the speakers will provide the delegates with conceptual design insight behind their project.

The conference is open to all professional building designers.
