At eiengineering we’re always on top of the latest industry trends – that’s how we ensure we’re giving you the best possible buckets. One of the best ways to stay in touch with the industry and our customers is through events like Construction Materials Industry Conference 2016 (CMIC16).
The Construction Materials Industry Conference is celebrating its 10th anniversary with the theme of ‘Capability and Innovation’, which definitely resonates with us. The conference is once again being co-hosted by the Institute of Quarrying Australia (IQA) and Cement Concrete & Aggregates Australia (CCAA).
CMIC16 theme: Capability and Innovation
The ‘Capability and Innovation’ theme is perfectly suited to our current climate. Global mega-trends and digital innovation and disruption are changing not only how we work in the construction industry, but also every other industry.
Pressure on our industry to return profits to owners and stakeholders means that we need to be always improving – better, faster and more efficient is the name of the game. We’re looking forward to learning more about how we can always be improving eiengineering as we look to the future.
We’re also proud to announce that we will be exhibiting at the Construction Materials Industry Conference! Come and say hello to us in the exhibition area (no. 39) and have a chat with us about our industry-leading buckets.
The program is chock-full of great talks from speakers across the industry, such as:
Future Economic Challenges for Australia and for the Construction Sector
Saul Eslake, Economist
This should be a great presentation from Saul; he’s such a respected figure. We always need to be looking ahead and anticipating future trends and situations. Hopefully Saul can give us an insight into what to expect from the future.
Why the Construction Industry Needs to Innovate
Peter Wilkinson, Director Development & Delivery, Melbourne Metro Rail Authority
The topic of this talk is close to our hearts at eiengineering – we’re innovators! We strongly believe in innovation, but sometimes the industry can be slow to change. Hopefully Peter can convince some who are dragging their feet.
The Story of the Barangaroo Skills Exchange
Ro Coroneos, Manager, Community and Social Strategy Barangaroo South, LendLease
The Barangaroo redevelopment in the western edge of Sydney’s CBD is big business. It’s a great example of using a large project to develop a generation of green construction knowledge. It’ll be great to hear about how LendLease is going about it.
Political Turbulence and Uncertainty
Barrie Cassidy, Insiders ABC
Always a treat to hear from Barrie Cassidy – he’s such a smart and well-spoken commentator. We’re interested in what he has to say about the construction industry.
