Get ready for ARBS 2020
ARBS 2020, an international event for the air-conditioning, refrigeration and building services industry, will return to Melbourne in May.
The event is expected to host over 300 exhibitors, and will include an industry awards program as well as a comprehensive seminar program — ARBS Speaker Series and IBTech Insight Series.
ARBS 2020 is recognised as a must-attend event for the entire industry. The vibrant show floor will offer visitors numerous immersive experiences as well as access to the latest new technologies, products and services from around the globe. The ARBS Industry Awards offers an inclusive and social forum to recognise and celebrate the multitude of talented individuals and organisations that continue to strengthen the industry.
Running in conjunction with the exhibition is the ARBS Speaker Series, where industry thought leaders will present information on current topics, updates and trending issues. Each session will provide attendees with invaluable learning opportunities and the opportunity to accrue continuing professional development (CPD) points.
A presentation on ‘The SBRC: one of Australia’s most sustainable buildings’, by Dr Craig McLauchlan of the University of Wollongong (UOW), will be one of the sessions on offer at the ARBS Speaker Series and will be of interest to those in the pump industry.
The Sustainable Buildings Research Centre (SBRC) at the University of Wollongong incorporates a wide range of features and research facilities, ranging from pragmatic passive design to a 160 kWp solar PV array and microgrid, ground source heat pumps and a new $1.8m ‘Building Insights Facility’ for thermal testing of building facades and air-conditioning systems.
Attendees to this session will hear about the design processes, construction and operation involved in the development of the Sustainable Buildings Research Centre. Also under discussion will be the processes and technologies that can be applied to other building projects.
