Overview

Cities in recent years have changed dramatically, in most cases rendering their skylines virtually unrecognisable within decades. Reinventing cities to improve the quality of living is high on the agenda of all cities. There is currently a lot of emphasis on evolving technologies and building systems that improve the energy efficiency and liveability of older buildings. The trend is currently toward ‘vertical cities’ in high density cities to cater to the increasing population. Countries are looking at exploring the vertical space to overcome challenges in land acquisition, space and costs. In light of this developers are increasingly looking at building tall skyscrapers whilst focusing
on the structural design challenges and requirements that are disaster resistant.

The 4th Annual Vertical Cities is specifically designed to meet all building industry practitioners' demands to secure and guarantee their investments. This conference will highlight through practical case studies and panel on its importance to the building sector be it upcoming or existing buildings; will have to adopt green initiatives and energy efficiency to remain competitive and at the same time sustainable. It will offer participants insights on state-of-the-art techniques that can be drawn upon from the vast experience of our global speaker line-up.

With more ambitious projects of Vertical Cities such as the dream of building a city within a city, one has to examine the typologies, design, engineering considerations and technology for future development of a city’s skyline. Don’t miss this opportunity to meet the line up of key international speakers and to network with a very niche and targeted group of delegates from across the world.

Follow your own agenda with a choice of three streams over the 3 days:
Day One & Day Two
Stream I : Masterplanning and Typology
Stream II : Structural Engineering and Construction
Stream III : Sustainability & Commercialisation

Featuring an exclusive 3rd Day on SmartBuild: Facades, Curtain Walling and Innovative Technologies to stay on top of the rapid innovations in today’s modern vertical city developments to examine the challenges and solutions for façade and curtain walling design elements through conceptual technology and integrated strategies.
