Sustainability organisation, Australian Living is organising an event in Brisbane designed to present the future of the built environment to builders, architects, designers and tradies in Queensland. 

SEE Sustainable Experience 2015 will be held at the Brisbane Showgrounds from June 18 to 20, and will focus on products, solutions and education to protect the state’s built environment. The event will bring together industry experts, government representatives and innovative building companies in an exciting industry expo, combined with an educational seminar series.

Australian Living Managing Director, Cameron Rosen said that one of the major highlights of the event will be the Q and A session on the afternoon of June 19 when participants will have an opportunity to hear from leaders in the field including representatives from Master Builders Queensland, Lend Lease, HIA, Australian Institute of Architects, Brickworks, Building Designers Association Queensland, and Economic Development Queensland.

To be facilitated by Mark Thomson from the Australian Green Development Forum, this session is bound to ignite debate and discussion from builders, architects and designers.

Rosen explains that the three-day SEE Sustainable Experience is a key event on the Queensland construction calendar, with unique challenges such as the rising cost of energy and erratic weather presenting opportunities for those that have the knowledge to create sustainable built environments and provide healthy spaces in which to live, work, and play.

Key highlights of SEE Sustainable Experience 2015 include a presentation by the Founder and President of Mythic Paint, a non-toxic, VOC-free paint; sessions focusing on building materials, sustainable design, insulation, HVAC and more; and the state’s future industry experts showcasing their entries for the Built Horizon Project, a competition for senior students studying graphic design, facilitated by Construction Skills Queensland and Building Designers Australia.
