Global leading Architect to provide a keynote address at the Construction Innovation 2017 Forum      

The Air Conditioning and Mechanical Contractors’ Association (AMCA) is excited to announce Mr Shane Burger, is the latest high profile international keynote presenter at the BIM-MEPAUS Construction Innovation 2017 Forum.

Shane is an internationally recognized leader in the advanced use of technology in design and for the built environment within a wide array of sectors. His early work at Grimshaw Architects focused on the design of arts and cultural institutions using an array of computational design processes. At Woods Bagot, he directs a vision centered on technical innovation and leads a global team dedicated to researching, developing and applying new models of design and delivery to projects.

As a director of the design computation and education non-profit Smartgeometry, he is actively engaged in the intersection of art and technology. Smartgeometry promotes the emergence of a new paradigm for digital designers and craftsman where mathematics and algorithms are as natural as pen and paper.

In signing up for this year’s forum, Shane said: “I am excited to participate at this year’s event. I am looking forward to meeting my international peers and colleagues at Woods Bagot in Australia.”

Shane will be joined at the forum by thought leaders and practitioners from across the supply chain, each providing unique insight into how leading firms such as Turner, COWI (Denmark), McKinstry, and Autodesk are utilising technological advancements to deliver innovative best practice solutions in the building and construction industry.

This year’s forum returns to the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre – 14-15 September.
