Drainage Infrastructure: Developing 21st Century Drainage Systems through Effective Planning, Design, Implementation and Asset Management Strategies
Infrastructure IQ is excited to announce the launch of Australia’s first Drainage Infrastructure conference.
Over recent years we have witnessed how unpredictable and volatile weather conditions resulting in floods and other related disasters, has motivated state and federal Governments to commit significant investments into disaster and flood mitigation projects. In addition, the announcement of the Abbott Government’s $50 billion infrastructure budget, with significant portions of that budget delegated to new build road and rail projects, means busy days are ahead for Australia’s drainage industry.
Apart from stable investments driving the industry forward, it appears changes in climate coupled with ageing infrastructure and the emergence of sustainability and new technologies are the moving the sector in new directions.
Whether it is new developments or upgrading legacy drainage systems the industry has no shortage of challenges or conversely no shortage of new technologies, materials or techniques being embraced.
Which brings us to the Drainage Infrastructure conference, this presents the perfect opportunity to provide industry with a platform to gather and explore these latest trends and best practice examples for developing 21st century drainage systems through effective planning, design, implementation and asset management strategies.
Drainage Infrastructure 2015 will provide you with key insights into:
- Driving cost reductions and gaining efficiencies across design, construction and maintenance
- Driving sustainability through Water Sensitive Urban Design
- Optimising the use of new technologies and materials across the project lifecycle to ensure ROI
Attending this conference will provide you with holistic insights to gain a competitive advantage in an evolving landscape.
